I didn't spot the minor, and not very often panning issues, we look for. At certain panning speeds you can always see some judder with 24fps movies. In this case, one of our test scenes is near the opening of the movie RED when they pan the neighborhood. The JVC did a really good job. From a practical standpoint it was perhaps insignificantly smoother than the Epson, but definitely better than the Sony VPL-VW95ES.
Of course fancy image processing, including e-Shift2, can add to the visible image noise, and they do. Still pretty good looking, almost always better than the typical DLP in terms of noises such as common mosquito noise.
3D noise: Much better than last year's JVC projectors. I think JVC did a great job of improving 3D performance this year. They went, in one year, from mediocre, to "pretty competent".
I watched a ton of 3D with this JVC X95R projector, that included Hugo, MIB 3, the last Harry Potter, The Avengers, Step-Up 3D (dance movie). My concern with 3D was not crosstalk or other 3D issues, but always came back to the brightness. I'm sorry, working with less than 800 lumens in 3D is always going to make brightness the primary issue.
At least this year, they have the big crosstalk issues discussed last year, under control.
