JVC DLA-HD250 Projector - Warranty
8/1/2011 - Art Feierman
The JVC DLA-HD250 (click for specs) provides a two year parts and labor warranty.
That's the most common warranty among 1080p home theater projectors. A few others out there offer three years, and a few only one year. In the $3000 price range, the JVC warranty is about typical, but there are a few with distinctly better warranties, such as Epson with 2 years and replacement program on their less expensive 8700UB, and the same but 3 years, for their similarly priced 9700UB. Sanyo puts 3 years on their projector (much lower cost), and Optoma has 3 years on their HD8600, which admittedly is a more expensive projector.
As a current owner of a JVC DLA-RS20 - my second JVC, JVC definitely seems to provide very good build quality. Overall, JVC also has a very good reputation for reliability. (My JVC (last and current - I logged over 4000 hours, no issues (as it should be).
Bottom Line: A typical warranty, yet a good one, though not the best. But combine that with a good reputation for reliability, and with little luck required, owning a JVC should be a very safe experience, from a repair standpoint.
