Conclusion: The HD 350 from JVC not only costs less than its HD 100 predecessor; it’s also way better! Combining powerful light-output and enormous contrast, the HD 350 is a hard act to follow — it can even produce top-quality pictures on XXL screens. Very impressive indeed!
Pros: Lens-shift and 2x zoom offer versatile positioning., Bright picture with high native contrast., Excellent video processing., Judder-free 24p.
Cons: Colors aren’t perfectly neutral., Awkward operation in places.
Excerpt: We’re no strangers to JVC projectors around the Home Theater campfire. We’ve reviewed several of their models over the past few years. I’ve been using a DLA-RS1 as a reference since 2007. It isn’t perfect—no projector is—but it does a lot right, and I’m not the only one who says so. At $6,000 when it first came out, it was one of the players that redefined value in the home projector game.
Excerpt: JVC 's range of home cinema projectors extends to a modest total of three machines. Two of these, the DLA-HD100 and DLA-HD750 have already blazed a trail in this magazine, achieving five-star status in the process. That just leaves this, the entry-level DLA-HD350 as the final piece of JVC's projector puzzle. The exterior design is identical to that of its more expensive sibling, the 'HD750.
Pros: Solid build, good looks, motorized lense shift, zoom and focus ease the set-up process, startlingly good picture for the money
Cons: Remote can be sluggish, strange positioning of inputs
Summary: After years hovering around on the periphery of the home cinema scene with its proprietary D-ILA technology, JVC suddenly dived straight into the middle of things in 2008 when it launched its DLA-HD1 projector to huge critical acclaim. In fact, the HD1 was so ground-breakingly excellent that as we set about its successor, the DLA-HD350, we can’t help but wonder if JVC has really managed to eke out any substantial performance improvements.
Conclusion: Der HD 350 von JVC kostet nicht nur weniger als der Vorgänger HD 100, er ist auch besser und bekommt entsprechend mehr Punkte. Die Kombination aus großer Lichtstärke und enormem Kontrast macht ihm so schnell keiner nach. Entsprechend faszinierende Bilder zaubert er selbst auf sehr große Leinwände. Ein starkes Teil!
