Optoma UHZ65 or JVC LX-NZ3

Hi,
Building a new home with a theater/game room.

I would like to purchase a projector for it and I am looking at either the Optoma UHZ65 (laser) and the JVC LX-NZ3 (laser).
There is alot of information on the Optoma, but not much on the much newer JVC.

I do not have much experience in projectors and was wondering what you all think is a better purchase and why? Pros and Cons?
Anyone with either of these units? your thoughts?

I do know I want to get a laser projector and keep the price in the 3-4K range.

I appreciate the help.

JVC pros
Cheaper by decent amount
Basic hdr tone mapping
More placement flexibility
Brighter

Cons
Basic lens
4x dlp shifter
No p3 color


Udz65 pros
Better color
.66 dlp 2x shifter
Better lens (better sharpness)

Cons
Cost
Dimmer
Less placement options


I have not seen them in action but my guess is the udz has the better picture and both need external help for hdr.

B stock/used ht9060 fall into this price range once in a while. Very nice dlp led.

What is your space and screen size goals?



Have fun!

Dedicated LX-NZ3 thread here:

In general, if you want a 120in, or smaller, 16x9 image, the UHZ65UST (P1) is probably a better bet. If you need a more conventional ceiling mounted projector, then the UHZ65 or ZK507 might be worth considering.
