  1. The epson lens array is quite excellent. Better than most or all JVC's I've had apart from the X7500 from 3-4 years ago which was as good or maybe a fraction better.. I might have gotten lucky but I sell a lot of 9400's and people who own them are very happy with the lens. The only 2 machines that I've seen with better lenses in the past 5 years were high lumen 16,000$ benQ installation projectors, and it wasn't by that much either. The Epson is a stellar machine for the money. I don't see anything under a good working JVC N5 besting it and that's nearly double the price. The 500es had a good lens I remember this model well, it was from there onward they dropped in quality. They are trying to get the differences down to around 3% but I don't think they are. Couriers don't help either bumping them about. JVC X5500, X7500 or X9500 may come up 2nd hand, but warranty of course needs to be considered.
  2. The 500ES is ancient now. Don't get sucked in by the amount of pixels. A 2K projector with a good lens will destroy a 4K projector with an ordinary lens. 4K projector with average lens means you don't really have a 4K projector. If lens is not up to the task then I'd forget it.
  3. I would not use one. We have evo ultra grey vinyl here and it's only really used in commercial applications where image colour accuracy isn't so paramount. Never in a theatre, maybe once from memory actually. All you're doing is darkening the image to try and save contrast. but there are trade offs of course. white is best always for home theatre.
  4. The next batch is due in August and is a new batch, so hopefully we don't see anymore of this. 4 from 4 duds in a row, not good but will be rectified one way or another! Hang in there. As someone on here mentioned, if this was TV there'd be an Australian wide outcry but because it's a niche market it's deemed not too important. seems so anyway.
  5. They need to native 4K Al but I don't know if it's up to them. Last main oz rep I spoke with said Epson are about selling products not native 4k.. but the transition itself will take them there eventually as 2k will be betamax vhs some day. The LS10000 sold poorly so they didn't replace it. If it was native 4K panels and laser with good contrast and hdr handing under 12K that will be a healthy competitor to jvc and sony.
  6. It's ok, but if you're coming from PC gaming with their 1 and 2 ms lag time monitors then 30ms is noticeable, otherwise it's ok.
  7. It's not that black and white though. Case by case. The JVC's have a long running ballast fault problem in the x series machines. One of my customers is going in to get his 3rd ballast replaced in as many years. You can replace them yourself, but if under warranty I would not bother. But can be done https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-digital-hi-end-projectors-3-000-usd-msrp/2047338-replacing-jvc-ballast-2.html
  8. Except for DLP projectors which have gone backwards in contrast... not great. If the OP ends with a 2700 just make sure the lens is ok. Test in store before buying because at 2500 ish you simply cannot get a great lens array. There is variance and like TV you go into a lens lottery. The epson lens and everything else about it destroys it but is about 1000$ more. so not comparing apples with apples. 2700 lens image below. and this was the centre of the screen. it went back.
  9. Haven't seen anything really on here, try the AVS forum there's threads over there on this. Not sure if you can get their paints in oz though?

  11. Can, but no stock in the country until end of the month. I need a bunch of them but nothing for a few weeks it seems. That may change. sometimes they surprise us and arrive earlier.
  12. Good point, might be. The N5's are all sold out so some retailers have been selling them.. still risky as getting them to swap over faulty ones, especially during these past couple of months, has been ridiculous.
  13. Any closer than 1 x image width and you are likely to see SDE. Otherwise it's a non issue at normal seating distances.
  14. You're right, I came across a bit anti electric car but really I'm not. I just think it's funny he stole the great Nikola Tesla's name given electric cars use fossil fuels to power them up.
  15. Just as we've done since it all began. How do you charge your car in a black out for example? Neither are perfect.
