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.
Excerpt: Projector Product of the Year 2009 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: JVC's DLA-HD350 improves even further on the remarkable black level of the DLA-HD1. Couple that with its extreme sharpness plus better brightness, and you end up with a projector that is a bargain of gargantuan proportions.
Pros: Incredible contrast performance, Exceptional sharpness, Decent design, Runs very quietly, Excellent DVD upscaling performance.
Cons: Lack of color management features, Colours could be richer, No PC input.
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!
