JVC DLA-RS600U 4k Projector

Anyone looking for a new projector should factor in this deal. These are currently selling for $6,000 but I can currently get one to you for a cool $4,000. I know many were looking at upgrades in this department so this might be enough to push you into the 4k PJ realm.

Cheers.

    Gonna give it a look, as the other 4k option I was liking came from Optimo.

    Insanely good deal. I don't think there are any projectors out there that could match the black levels of this top dog JVC, under $25,000. I would take this JVC over any other brands minus Sony. Depending on which Sony 4k, of course.

    Damn good price. Last thing. The JVC RS600 does not go through the typical assembly line process but under stricter quality controlled mesaures.

    Just out of curiosity, (for those of us with a slightly tighter budget), how do you feel about the RS500? It appears to be nearly identical except slightly lower native contrast.

    I would take any JVC over the best Epson, Panasonic, BenQ, and Optoma any day.

    JVC lead the industry, even when they did not have dynamic Iris. Panasonic and Epson ere practically siblings. Both can't touch any JVC. Period.

    Go demo it yourself if you could

    Cheers

    Based off the review I saw the 600 has the top performing chips developed in the batches hand picked and put aside solely for this model. This ensures top notch performance and is similar to getting a production car closer to the completely decked prototype.

    So the 400, 500, and 620 (higher native than the 600) are the reject leftovers? Seems a bit illogical. I'm just trying to get educated so I can make a more informed decision.

    No. they're the meets spec chips. The 600 and maybe the 620 (?) have the exceeds expectation chips that performed at the highest marks.

    Not rejects...JVC had a faux pas a couple years ago. They were the leaders in projection.

    In recovery they segregated their TOTL vs consumer medium market.

    I see. I would have thought that the series would have been given the same treatment instead of segregating half way up the group. I'll have to see if I can audition one near by.

    There's always going to be consumer, signature, reference :)

    Just read ALL the details for each of the 4 units in the reference series and the 600 and 620 have the hand selected components, where the 400 and 500 do not. I would have thought that all the reference series would have the hand selected pieces. That's what made me scratch my head.

    The JVC 600/620/640 are hand picked parts throughout...the "cream of the crop" components so to speak.

    The 500/520/540 are the same components but they are all "bin" parts.

    The 400/420/440 are the entry into the JVC e-shift projectors but still punch way above their weight class.

    Bump. For great offer. Okay. I think I may have to pull trigger on this. Even though Sony 4k projector is being delivered..

    Crazy pricing.
