Was anything I questioned in the post you referenced inaccurate? Uncomfortable? Sure, but inaccurate?
Perhaps my tonal shift is a response to the almost constant barage of self serving BS from a few members with financial motivations.
What with the cryptic reply?
Your most recent post is what prompted my post, but I can tell you I have been reading your stuff in the past month or two, and I gotta be honest, you are coming off insanely bitter these days. Simple as that.
Something must have happened which soured your thoughts on the JVC brand, and it was not their products I can pretty confidently say that. Shame really, since when you start having political issues with a brand not based on the actual products but instead based on other things, then you are no longer impartial, that is called a detractor.
Sure the 4500 had a rocky start, but its no doubt an amazing machine. How about the 5000ES? A Ton of those were bricked, defective, you name it. Pretty sure even Joe has exchanged his, but its interesting how they keep it all a secret and make light of others who have been down a similar path just because of what name is on the box. You will find JVC owners talk about issues, even you have had issues. We talk about them to find resolutions, nothing wrong with that, shouldn't matter which brand it is.
I could also show you screen-shots of the lenses Sony used to pass off as acceptable. I've read your posts about your 9900 issues and journey, you know mine. What if I told you that Sony would laugh in your face if we attempted to claim issue with the level of scrutiny we put those JVC's through? I returned my units because I KNEW JVC could do better, But Sony wouldn't have a bar of it, they had already set the bar low back in the day. Man you should see the lenses they used to ship!
What if your current projector passed this off as a lens, let alone something worth north of $15,000USD? These are all '4K Sony's'. I will say I am glad it seems they have made progress here and fixed this.
No brand is perfect, lets get that straight. I dont think its fair to poke fun at how many 'replacements' have been issued and customers who actually ended up with A+ working samples at the end of it, Sony absolutely included here. Better than a brand telling a customer tough titties is it not? My JVC experience was a nightmare spanning nearly 4 months to fully 'resolve', at least you ended up with a decent sample at the end of your 'Advanced Replacement' journey, I was literally told tough ***** if I dont like what I have, I dont even have a 9900 now at all. I think the 9900 was a dud model. But my experience here is actually with JVC Australia, and I dont hold that against the company as a whole. In fact, I can narrow my experience down to one person.
