For me, maybe Avengers: Endgame release date: April 26, 2019. I might have my RS3000 by the time it is released on disc. :(
Hopefully you won't have to wait quite that long.

What is your current projector and screen, Mike?

Have several, but I use an RS640 in my dedicated room right now. Shooting onto a scope, curved masking screen with Screen Acoustic V6 (AT) fabric. I use an A-lens. Here is a thread on my system. https://discuss.avscience.com/index.php?topic=124.0

You adjust the lamp between high and low and then you use the manual iris to set brightness. Go to advanced menu on remote, then turn off dynamic iris and that will then allow you to adjust the manual iris. Then you can turn the dynamic iris back on.
Thanx so much!!!!!

May I ask another question?  Where are the filters Manni mentioned to adjust the contrast?

I'm not sure what you mean. Contrast doesn't really need to be adjusted and is best left to 0. When/where did I mention these?

Received my RS3000 Friday. Got it set up and played with it this weekend. The 3000 looks a lot like my RS4500 did, sharpness and motion wise, so very pleased. The image is very sharp, black levels and contrast are good. Star fields look good. The background looks black and the stars are bright. I do not see any streaking with white letters on a black background. When I hit the hide button, I might see a little bit of bright corners in two corners, but that is only after staring at it for a while and so faint, that I am not sure it is there. Motion is excellent. The auto tone mapping works well, but using the UB9000 I am able to keep the lamp in low and HDR still looks very good, so will be using the UB9000 for the HDR. 

Even Amazon and Netflix streaming content is looking good. Wife and I started watching the Expanse on Amazon and this 1080P streamed content looks good on the 3000.

I also finally cracked and bought the RS3000. Received it about the same time as Mike and have spent the last two weeks getting it dialed in. Unit I received is a nice sample. I see some elevated corners up top with the Hide function enabled, but have yet to notice them at all with any real content. Like models before this seems to be more obvious when the projector is synching to a signal than with actual content, even when I'm watching something with a black out scene. 

Pixel sharpness is very good, just a tad short of the best that I've seen. From seating distance I agree with Mike, this projector has a lot of the same qualities that I loved about the RS4500. Mainly the absolutely tack sharp image, which looks like a higher MTF that what I typically see from projectors. Motion is excellent and honestly I'm hard pressed to find anything to complain about. I have mine coupled with a Radiance Pro for HDR tone mapping and with the updated curves that Jim has released recently, I'm ecstatic with the overall picture quality. 

As always there are always things I'd like to see improved with future generations. Based on my findings so far I'd say I'd like to see JVC continue to push for higher and higher contrast (I'll say this until we hit OLED levels!!), I'd like to see the HDR Picture Mode feature expanded to custom setup for all input types. I'd like them to improve noise levels with high lamp (doesn't bother me in the slightest, but would still like to get it down to the levels I was measuring with the Sony models, which is slightly lower at their highest output) and of course something closer to their rated output but at calibrated levels. 

Right now I am not missing anything from my time with the RS4500 except the ability to go to a full blackout. That was nice, though it did come with some minor artifacts from time to time (laser dimming going too dim with some content). Overall though I'm extremely pleased with the performance I'm getting and honestly looking forward to having this projector for awhile to come. 

As always anyone in the Seattle area that wants to come and demo are welcome.

Also since JVC is carrying through the RS1000, 2000, 3000 and 4500, I expect us to see more improvements to this line in the way of firmware. :) These projectors are really good right now, so any improvements added just makes them better. This is great for all the current owners as well as future owners.

Have a few B-stock coming in. These were unexpected at this time, since JVC said it may be a while before we see any. Not many, so first come first serve. :)
