JVC DLA-RS4910 Projector – First Look
April 3, 2014 - Art Feierman
Greetings projector fans – Â I just want to say for now that I really am impressed with JVC’s DLA-RS4910. Â This projector doesn’t exist in the consumer X series, only on the pro RS. Â With a sticker price of about $5500 list.
JVC’s DLA-RS4910 produces an impressive picture for a $5000 range projector
What I really wanted to say is that the picture is extremely saturated and rich looking, reminds me of a good DLP projector. Â I found the iris to be about as invisible as one can hope for, and the blacks really good.
This JVC RS4910 projector isn’t yet calibrated but it has a couple of great looking modes to start with. Â Mike will calibrate it when he gets back from his travels, this weekend. Â I’ll shoot the movie photos then, do the HDTV in the meantime.
It’s been a few months since I’ve had the Sony HW55ES here, so I’m working from memory. Â I figure the JVC has more pop,
Finally More Home Theater Projectors Arriving – JVC RS4910, Optoma HD91

The good news, is that finally, I’ve got a new JVC projector inbound for review. Â I want to thank the great folks at AV Science – you know – Â the folks that created and brought you the AVSforum, have been kind enough to ship me a DLA-RS4910. Â For those not familiar, the JVC DLA-RS4910 is a slightly different version, but almost identical to the DLA-X500R. Â I’ve received the tracking number on the JVC projector, so know it’s arriving this coming…
Greetings, this is just a quick note that the first pass of our projector review of the Sony VPL-VW600ES home theater projector has been posted. Â That means there’s still a bit more to come, but the core review is there. Â Missing still is the VPL-VW600ES calibration information, and some comparisons to the serious projector competition, among other things.
4K content is visually stunning, click for the larger image
The VPL-VW600ES produces an awesome picture. Â 4K makes such a difference, including a big one with 1080p content, but when you get to watch true 4K content then you are getting a jump in resolution that’s almost as great as going from pre-hdtv NTSC tv to 1080.
True 4K or Ultra-HD is something that is more appreciated by us projector folk than folks with those tiny 65 inch LCD TVs. Â We need it more. Â Sadly, only Sony is offering up 4K so far, but I predict that will change dramatically over the next two years.
The Sony VPL-VW600ES projector claims 1700 lumens, and delivers on that claim.
Sony VPL-VW600ES Projector – Review in the Works – Awesome – Can JVC compete?
February 13, 2014 - Art Feierman
As many of you know I got two good looks at pre-production VW600ES projectors months ago. Â It had come with a PC/Server – generic, not the round one that now ships with the VW600ES. Â It had some 4K content on it. Â This time they sent me the official server – needed for Sony’s 4K media service (more details in the review) and a second source with even more 4K content than previous.
Well, I had Mike immediately calibrate this projector (figure about 20 hours on the lamp). Â And started watching it extensively
