JVC has a number of 4K projectors, but the cheapest model is $3,999, and all of them use JVC’s own special-blend D-ILA technology.
But JVC is finally stooping down to serve the masses with a more traditional DLP-based 4K HDR projector at a (relatively) affordable $2,499 price point. JVC’s new LX-UH1 is a 2,000 lumen projector with a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and support for HDR10. JVC has kindly included a wide range of vertical and horizontal lens-shifting angles, and a touch of zoom, so it should be relatively easy to install this projector and get the image aimed at the correct spot on your wall.
Without some in-depth reviews, it’s hard to tell what makes JVC’s new projector $1,000 better than the Optoma or BenQ 4K alternatives, outside the brand name. The LX-UH1 starts shipping in May, so I guess we’re about to find out.
As always, if you’re looking for someone to chat with about “faux k” or DMD chip sizes, I recommend a visit to AVS Forum.
