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....
