I was actually aiming for a JVC second hand just before Christmas and missed an X7900..... I'd been loosely looking at how to improve from my Mitsubishi HC5 (Hc9000) and it was a really tricky search as that was an amazing bag for it's buck.
The Epson comfortably beats it on blacks, contrast and a very usable 3D. It's also 4k enabled and has very high light output which made more sense with the market moving towards HDR.
Prior to that i had a Mits 4000 which got me back into the PJ game as I was a CRT nut in my old place but mounting my modified Barco BG808 was not really an option. I had a few Barco's prior to that and have been in this game for 20+ years!
I'm no fan boy or trying to justify a purchase!
As for ceda I'd have been at the JVC stand. 4k with 8k pixel shifting would get my inner geek doing back flips to see.
The Epson is by comparison old tech, there's nothing new or wow there apart from it being an absolute steal!
It's not even in the $3k group.... And yet offers most of what they do!
I'm also a facts and figures guy and I'll dig out the polish reviews for the TW9400 and the 4k native Sony. I was stunned that the Epson in Natural was brighter and more accurate than it. It's way more accurate in filter modes but agree its a big light hit.... I'm curious about if there is a power light filter made for it as I'm a bit of an accuracy nut. I've decent meters and even a 3D LUT box, though alas 1080p only!
