Summary: Personal Experience Owned projector since April 2004 and have about 200 hours on it. I use video and component inputs with no problem. Progressive scan is used with DVD's Problems Unit arrived with image problems right out of the box. JVC service repaired the problem without any hassle. It is my understanding that part of the main mother board was replaced and has been operating fine ever since.
Summary: Personal Experience The image projected by this projector gives one a feeling of watching a huge lcd monitor. Crystal clear especially with HDTV and very vivid colors and uniform brightness. Black levels are not the best but the settings can be tweaked to compensate for that. Best projector for the money. I am surprised JVC is not doing more to market this.
Summary: Personal Experience I have seen them all...and this one wins my heart. An amazing resolution and sharpness on particular component HD and video signals. If you are planning to feed it composite video...buy a cheaper projector! Problems Not the best projector when it comes to black... remember to buy a grey screen for better contrast!
Summary: Personal Experience In my opinion the best digital projector outthere. Very good and natural color. Even at one feet no screendoor.(width 2,5 mtr) Unbeliefabel light power even though only rated at 1500 ansi. Black and greyscale truly accurate. Also saw a Marantz 12 s2 ,this one had a tad bit better contrast,but much less lightpower and shadowdetail. So I bought the Jvc.
Summary: Personal Experience Very good projector in most respects Problems Simply not sharp, and this conclusion was made after testing 3 brand new projectors. Even a Sony I have which is a few yearas old, and 25% of the price is very much sharper, particularly noticeable in all text.
