Sony VPL-VW60 vs. JVC DLA-RS2

In the review of the VW60, I mentioned at one point, that it might be considered a “poor man’s” JVC RS2. We’ll explore that, and other aspects of these two projectors.

The Basics: What is similar about these two home theater projectors - features?

Both of these projectors are three panel LCoS technology. The VW60 relys on a dynamic iris to help it achieve its best possible black levels, while the JVC DLA-RS2 manages even better black levels, without gimmicks.

Both have two HDMI inputs, and both support HDMI 1.3. The JVC RS2, however supports Deep Color – one of those “future” improvements we can expect on Blu-ray discs, for better color handling. The Sony, unfortunately, does not.

Both have very good remotes. I like both remotes, about evenly. If I had to pick one, it would be the JVC. The Sony does not have discrete buttons for each source, so to change from one to another source, the JVC remote has the advantage.

Projector Warranties

Since were talking hardware right now, I should mention the projector warranties. Both projectors come with a two years, parts and labor warranty. Talk about a tie!
