Same question, different perspectives: JVC RS35 or RS4910 at same price, which one?

Hi everyone I would like to ask a question that I already asked to the community months ago but now under different perspectives. I have the opportunity to get either a JvC RS35 or 4910 at the same price (some months ago the 35 costed $200). Both of them in good condition the 35 with 700hrs on lamp the 4910 needs a lamp replacement. Which one would you recommend? thank you for your kind assistance

I had the opportunity to have both. The RS4910 was a better projector all around. The RS4910 is 3D, upscale to 4k, sharper, has a DI, and brighter.

This 35 has a perfect focus with a razor image. Plus it allow a 12 points calibration gamma which brings to a reference picture quality. I am wondering if the 4910 will beat the 35 from this points of view. I haven’t seen in person this 4910 unit I only know that needs a lamp replacement, while the lamp on the 35 has 650 hours. Please help in choosing. Thank you very much

Not really sure what you are asking. If you think the rs35 is as good as you say, why not just choose it? From my experience from owning both, the rs4910 was the better projector as I stated in my previous post. Not sure about the calibration because it's been about 5 years since I owned it but I don't remember having an issue.

Thank you for your kindness. If you have owned both of them and you think that the 4910 is an overall better projector compared to the 35 I will follow your suggestion.

I second the RS-4910, I didn't own the RS-35, but I've seen it twice.

The sharpness was about the same from seating distance.
I didn't pixel peep where I saw them, as most JVC's are similar in sharpness.

It's the RS-20/10 and older models where the sharpness starts to take a hit.

I went from the RS35 to the RS4910. The RS4910 was a definite upgrade to the RS35. Brighter, better blacks due to dynamic iris, all around better.
