JVC RS1000 / 2000 Anticipation Thread

Here are some hand held screen shots of moving video - not the best conditions, but I sure thought the RS1000 looked great at Cedia ! Just a tease while you wait !

I am stuck trying to decide between the RS2000 and RS3000.

Seeing how close the RS3000 is to the RS4500 ( for 1/2 the price ), I don't think you would be anything but thrilled with the RS3000 for years to come. Call me tomorrow to discuss if you would like.

Stop torturing yourself! Let me decide for you... You want the RS3000. Go on, you know this!  ;)  8)  :-*

That's silly. We ALL want the RS3000. It's a matter of how crazy (or crazy rich) we all are.  ;D

I'm anxiously anticipating the reviews on the RS1000/2000, and hopefully, a comparison to the RS540!

The 3000 is out of reach, so it comes down the 540/1000/2000. My personal hope is that the 1000 will deliver the performance value, but my suspicion by looking at the specs is that the 2000 is going to be the one that will draw me.

Coming from an HD250, I'm fairly confident that any of those three would be a significant improvement, but while the price of the 540 is very attractive, the lure of true 4K and all the other features (not to mention the glowing praise of those who saw them at the IFA and CEDIA shows) weighs heavily as well. I hesitate to spend a large amount of money on an aging technology platform, and the possibility of the 540's e-shift mechanism being too annoyingly noisy to ignore (I'm very sensitive to high-frequency noise) factors into it as well. Without being able to see/hear a 540 in person, it's difficult to make a $4,000 gamble.

I lament the reality that the reviews will likely not come in time for the pre-order pricing window, but my concern about being an early adopter of a new generation platform is sticking in my mind as well. Getting in on the ground floor of something new is exciting, but often expensive and fraught with peril while the kinks are ironed out.

I do appreciate all those that go before me and put these projectors through their paces!

I've owned a JVC since the RS600, and I have no worries that they will bring out a solid line of 4K projectors this year. They already have a solid native 4K projector, which I own. It's been trouble free for 19 months. They are using a lot of " trickle down " tech in the new projectors, from the RS4500.

Coming from an HD250 you're going to see a huge jump in performance no matter which unit you decide to go with.

As far as relative performance between the models, I think JVC has figured that out already. For a couple years JVC made the mistake of having the bottom end eshift model having contrast and light output capabilities too close to the mid-tier model. I think most people chose the DLA-RS4910 over the DLA-RS57 because of this. Then the HDR models came out and JVC rectified that mistake by having a pretty decent bump in contrast performance between the two models to make it worth the money to make the jump. Plus, with the advent of HDR, the P3 filter that the mid and top tier models had made them even more of a jump up in performance over the bottom model. I think JVC will keep these relative performance differences with these new models as well. If you can afford it, I think the RS2000 is the way to go over the RS1000.

Yes, the projectors will arrive in a group, so no way to have a review, before the projectors ship.

Yep, since we deal with a pretty informed group, the RS2000 will be the main seller. It has been this way ever since the RS400, 500 and 600 models.

Mike, I see you have a list of questions to ask JVC about these new units. If you get the chance can you ask if JVC has improved the DiLA panel's response time with these new 3rd generation 4K panels? The latest 6th generation 1080p DiLA panels had a claimed response time of 4ms GTG. I'm wondering if this has been improved any, possibly getting closer to Sony's 2.5ms GTG response time.

Mike/Craig, I also see JVC is now offering a "3 Year Advanced Replacement Warranty" on all three of these new models. Is there any way we could get some details on this. It sound similar to Epson's warranty policy where they will ship you a new or refurbished unit right away before they've had the chance to receive your broken/damaged unit. Will this JVC warranty work similarly?

Correct. They have been does this for the RS440 / 540 and 640's. But, if you have a " golden sample ", you can elect to have your projector repaired instead.
