Retailer was good, product stinks

Hawkster, Amazon

  • Summary: really bummed i spent this amount of money on an HDTV projector and 6 months into the product working I got vertical white lines through the picture. After contacting JVC for a return.... they never replied to my request. I'm stuck and now it is out of warranty. Stay away from this product.

Best projector for a dedicated movie room, 2.35 screen

jmccarei, avsforum.com
14 May 2013
  • Summary: JVC DLA-RS45 Review 1) Features— Some of our favorite action movies, Transformers, Casino Royale, Kill Bill, etc. are filmed in 2.35, or wide screen. so when in our movie room, we want to be 'at the movies' and not see the black bars on top and bottom for a typical HD TV. this projector solves that problem while also allowing the viewer to watch regular TV on the screen as well.
  • Pros: lens memory+++, simple to adjust settings, deep colors
  • Cons: quirky with Logitech remotes (power off), black bars in 16:9 viewing

Do not buy this projector

Edward W. Brugel, Amazon
4 January 2013
  • Summary: The first lamp failed after only 800 hours (8 months) of use, not the 3000 hours that are specified. The replacement lamp failed after only 50 hours (1 month) of usage. The lamps are rather expensive (approximately $400.00).

Best price/performance of any home theater projector for 2D

Steven W. Calvert, Amazon
29 June 2012
  • Summary: With 1080P/24 support and 50,000:1 Native Contrast Ratio this is simply the best projector available for the price for 2D blu-ray and other 2D HD content. Other projectors, for the most part, use a dynamic iris to achieve their stated contrast ratio, this one does not. A dynamic iris increases overall brightness in light scenes and decreases it in dark scenes leading to a lack of shadow detail in scenes with both light and dark areas and the brightness changes may be...

Totally awesome, but needs better frame creation

Widget Meister, Amazon

  • Summary: My upgrade from PT-AE4000U to a DLA-RS45 (DLA-X30) Finally was able to afford a JVC projector, always wanted one for it's acclaimed black level and WOW, the black level and contrast! Like watching a CRT again! It's been a couple years since I gave up the CRT projector and I forgot how much better contrast and black levels could be. Dark movies look so much better, my back lit remote can be blinding ;-D PROS - WOW, the black level and contrast!

DLA-RS45

TJ, aboutprojectors.com
15 December 2011
  • Summary: I have it set up in a small area in a finished basement. good screen brightness in bright light environment and great screen image in darkened room. All in all a great projector in 2D or 3D. Also has great viewing from just about any angle to the screen as well.
  • Pros: clarity, color, 3D, screen angle viewing, brightness and contrast is wonderful, 3D playback or 2D to 3D conversion playback absolutely pops!
  • Cons: A bit hard to find the settings for 3D adjustment.

2D or 3D WOW!!

TJ, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: This projector does not disappoint! Unbelievable color right out of the box. Sharpness is good. Easy to view the screen from any angle. The ability to convert live TV or any signal for that matter to 3D is just wonderful. The 3D on this just pops! the 3D glasses easily go over regular eye glasses as well. The only draw back is with so many adjustments available it can be hard to find the one you need. That said the changes are easily made once found.
