It seems to come to the point that the new JVC's in comparison to a new top line DLP (of the same cost), the pop/sharpness isn't really the talking point anymore. A certain top DLP might have a slight advantage while a different top DLP might even have slightly less pop/sharpness (due to a lesser lens).
Thanks for the feedback. This seems to be the common sentiment here at AVS...
In rebuttal, I would say that there is at least one other AVSer who chooses his Sharp Z30K over his high end JVC. Zombie 10K has a "quiver" of front projectors an has a massive PJ comparison thread in the >$3K Forum. The last time I checked, Jason was still using his DLP for day to day content and saved his JVC for darker movies.
In any case, I can't see spending $5K+ on a 4K machine until there is more content and the requirement parameters stabilize. In a few years, prices will drop and they will get the bugs out of the HDMI and assorted HDR codecs. Perhaps by then TI and Benq will have stepped into the fray and offer a more competent/complete 4K DLP. We can only hope
Or, by that time, they will have 100" roll down OLED screens and front projectors will go the way of HD-DVDs....

I agree.

I have LG OLED sets I have added, and maybe someday we will get an Oled display that is at least 100" and can afford it Its fun to see this thread still chugging along from time to time, brings back great memories as that is when HD DVD and BD were happening at the same time.
I'm glad to hear there are others with W5K still around and machines keep running. I hope mine keep working as it seems suitable replacement is hard to come by these days. I even went to see a demo of some Sony LCOS (model 270 something) but I honestly did not like what I saw. It lacked ansi contrast I'm used with my BenQ and also black level was not nearly as impressive I was expecting (mine looks actually much darker with Dynamic Iris engaged which I keep on usually always). I need to check JVC DILA some day, that should be much better but I still would prefer just good DLP but there are not many these days.
Anyone here tested the BenQ HT5550/W5700? It seems interesting on paper but it also looks many ways rather questionable.

I've even been considering LG OLED 77" to replace projector but it just seems too small even I have only 95-96" projector screen...
