JVC DLA-HD250 Projector – Image Quality6

Overall Color & Picture Quality

Classic entry level JVC, although the HD250, out of the box is a bit weaker, color wise than we’re used to from JVC’s lowest cost model each year.

Calibrate it and the DLA-HD250 hums. Skin tones and everything get very good, that’s really very good. I didn’t make it all the way up to excellent, for there is a bit too much red push which can show up in skin tones especially in bright scenes. Once again, though, I point out, “really very good” is a level of good picture quality, that I can say I’ve never seen on anyone’s LCDTV, except maybe for some high end Pioneer Kuros and probably Runcos and SIM2 LCDTVs although those last two are first and foremost high end projector companies.

 

So, trust me on this, even if you are a madman with a light meter and calibration software, and can’t get this JVC to the precision level of the JVC’s with CMS (full color management), it’s highly unlikely that any of your friends family, or even walk by strangers, will think that the JVC’s color is anything less than beautiful. It takes us hard core, to complain about this level of picture quality.

DONT FORGET: There’s a section on the JVC DLA-HD250’s performance on HDTV and Sports, below this next batch of images!
