When I read projector reviews with comparisons between laser and incandescent sources laser gets short sheeted pretty consistantly. This review's example would be the brief mention regarding the convenience of turning the machine off.
Holy cow if image quaity is the same then laser light sources offer more than that. How about 10x the life span, that is if you never ever turn the machine off to quickly or suffer a power outage. Those damn bulbs cost $300 each, times 10 thats about $3000. Convenience? You wanna talk convenience? How about not having to change your bulb 10 times? That's a big deal even without ceiling mounting.
Can you say total cost of ownership?

My Epson 4010 cost less than $2000. It has a normal bulb that lasts an easy 4000 hours. It has 2700 lumens and is extremely bright and sharp at a 5 1/2 x 17 ft size. On top of that, I have heard that the laser light engines are not replaceable - you have to buy a new projector!

I often shudder now whenever I see a JVC product being reviewed or tested. I have my own history with JVC A/V products both up and down the production line having sold and represented them for decades. I’m happy when I see good things being said about an old friend but JVC has performed such a horrible job of marketing their devices in the vast consumer field particularly in the US. Only the upper echelons receive good ratings as most of the lower tiers are farmed out to often sketchy manufacturers who damage the name. It’s been a trend for years and has created a reputation for marginalized products. It’s good to see something built with some purposeful excellence but sad that you have to spend $25k to obtain it. I don’t see this hitting a Walmart shelf anytime soon next to other JVC video products (thanking the video Gods).
