JVC DLA-RS10 Projector – Image Quality3

Skin tones still have the tiniest amount of extra red when the faces, etc., are not well lit. Much better (extremely good) in bright scenes. These are minor things, there’s no doubt far more variation in skin tones, from one movie to the next, than the overall amount of shift in the JVC RS10.

Shadow detail is typically

The RS20 looks really great in terms of color accuracy- until, you put it side by side with the InFocus. Put it next to an Epson 6500UB, Panasonic PT-AE3000, and it’s better overall, as is also true with the Sony HW10, and BenQ W20000. You should get the idea. Let’s finish this off by saying, properly calibrated the overall picture quality, including shadow details and color balance are excellent, but not the best.

But, when you factor in the incredible black level performance of the RS20, then there’s no other projector under $10,000, that I’ve worked with, that I’d rather own. Even the slightly softer sharpness/crispness of the RS20 compared to the absolute sharpest of the 1080p projectors is, by my taste, a very minor thing, in the overall quest for the getting the best possible image on the screen.

JVC DLA-RS10U Projector: Performance, HDTV and Sports

This section will be completed in the next week. Let’s just say that the RS10 does a great job on HDTV and Sports. True, it could be a touch sharper to match the sharpest of the 1080p projectors, but this isn’t likely to be an issue for anyone. The weakness of the RS10, if any, for this type of viewing, is the relatively limited brightness of the projector in its brightest mode. That said, there is so little difference in brightness between modes, that when you are watching HDTV and sports, most likely you’ll be using the JVC’s best mode – a calibrated Cinema 1. That translates into a no compromise image in terms of color accuracy, skin tones, shadow detail, etc. Those are areas of compromise with most projector’s “brightest modes”.
