JVC DLA-RS15 Projector Review
On the left, is the JVC DLA-RS15, the middle, the Epson 8500UB/9500UB, and on the right, the VPL-VW85. The exposures are all a little different, but you should be able to appreciate the combination of shadow detail and dark blacks
Below is a heavily overexposed scene from Lord of the Rings. The overexposure lets you see all the details in the shed on the right, the structure on the left, and the plants and ground along the lower right. The DLA-RS15U performs very nicely.
Click on left thumbnail image for the JVC DLA-RS15, PT-AE4000 in the center, and the right for the Sony VPL-VW85.
Our last comparison uses the night train scene from Casino Royale. Look to the trees and shrubs on the right, especially just above the tracks. The first image is the RS-25, the second is the Sony VW85, followed by the Epson 9500UB, the Mitsuishi HC7000 and the last one is from the Optoma HD8600.
The first three, the RS15, the RS25 and the Sony VW85. Note, although the VW85 supports improved blacks this year, you can see here, it really still isn’t up to the JVC RS25, but is right there with the RS15. This scene is all dark, so it allows projectors with dynamic irises to get the most benefit from them. That makes this image a good one to see how close some projectors with dynamic irises can get, at their best, to the RS15.
