Hello people


I was 100% sure to get an new Pioneer G9 until just recently. I took my Xbox 360 to a place here in Sweden, where I live, and hooked it up to Epson TW2000 and
WOW!! Very nice picture with no visable pixels, which shocked me. I have also seen JVC RS-2 (but its too much $) and some occasions and really liked the "push" in the picture, but I think I wont be able to compare the Epson to JVC RS-1 and need some pointers in pros and cons.


My room is 20m2 (not too big) and 85% of the room is in cremewhite and one wall is in lightbrown. The ceiling is white and I have lightwood floor. I am able to shut out the light thrue the windows etc. but the room is quit bright. I was recommended a Stewart Firehawk G3 screen either a 90" or a 100". I was debating if I should get an 16:9 or a 2:35, but after a while I decided to get the 16:9 since I game a lot too as watch movies.


My viewing distance is 3m and 50cm.


I know the JVC RS-1 is "old" now and the technologie is moving fast. What appeals to me is the "push" in the picture, but the "pixelfree" picture on the Epson tw2000 was really nice.


Is it true that LCD projectors get their panels burned after xx hours? How does that work? Do I need to buy a lamp AND new panels?


The RS-1 will cost me around $900 more than the Epson


Sorry for my poor english, but Im Swedish

do you need the newest version of hdmi cause i believe the epson will support version 1.3 while the jvc does not, also that extra 900 could be used to upgrade to a new codec supporting receiver, just a thought

They both throw a fantastic image. I personally would probably go with the RS1 because LCoS has proven itself better for longevity.

What about the 1080UB? Isn't that available in Sweden? or is that the same as the TW2000?

I have done 370 hrs on my TW2000. No calibration, straight out of the box. Love it!!! The manager of a large HT installation company viewed it a week ago and said he classed it as an excellent projector for the price.. His company does not sell Epson but sells many high end brands so he has seen a lot of good displays in his day.

Hi Tryg,

Your comment has me worried. I was under the impression that Epson's new D4 panels were more durable than the older organic panels. Have there been reports of problems with the newer panels? Also, are the polarizer panels still an issue? I've been leaning toward one of the newer LCD projectors mainly because of their smaller size and lens shift capabilities. If they are truly less durable, I may have to rethink my plans.

I just dont know. I'm only speaking from history. Maybe the new panels are great. We may not know until after a few years though.

I never noticed.
I have new pilots trying to tell me how to fly a plane during flight instruction too. After a couple rounds of this I usually just cut them loose.
