As the owner of the older JVC, I've always considered it's sharpness, and therefore that of the RS25 as well, to be acceptable, but I have always wished it was a sharper, such as the old InFocus In83, and a few others I can think of. Quite honestly I don't really notice a difference when watching typical film based movies. It's when I have a great 1080 HDTV or 1080 Blu-ray source, with all digital material (an HDTV sports event, or programming like Discovery HD, Universe, Blue Planet, etc, where you are more likely to notice the JVC's slight softness compared to the sharpest projectors.
I certainly considered it a fair trade-off, in exchange for superior color accuracy, and the best black level performance available.
