And it is safe to assume he will never make any effort to see either one.
Whoah whoah whoah...you’re outa line friend. My posts and I are an open book. Don’t go accusing me of being some sort of mole with an agenda.
I’ve been researching projectors for over a decade (along with just about every other home theater component - a few of which I’ve purchased or upgraded within the last year ). Is there a rule against being a thorough researcher or a question asker? I have every intention of buying a projector when I find one that meets my needs and budget. The Epsons are in the lead as being the best bang for the buck right now, and I will probably buy one if they release an 18 Gbps capable unit and the price dips below 3k, but I am completely open to other options.
If you read those earlier threads, you will see that at least one other JVC owner admitted to great blacks at the expense of some crush. Crush, price (and price of bulbs), and input lag are my biggest hesitations, so I will continue to ask about those things at critical junctures, like Cedia, when new projectors are released to see if new models, firmware updates, or user experiences have changed.
Also, I would LOVE to see these projectors in person, but I have no options other than Magnolia with it’s poor set up and horrible lighting.
So please chill.
