    Good eve, Joust, thanks very much for your message!

    No, thanks man, I don't like the X30, found the X3 a considerably superior projector in many aspects (owned a few of both over the years). Ricky is great I hear, reassuring. However your price would have been much too high for me. X30's and X3s are selling for £300 to £700 on here with low hours.

    That, plus I only go for very strong samples.

    I actually just switched from 6 years of projectors and most recently, my X5000 (bad dealer and 2 faulty units though great PJ) to the Sammy UE43KS7500 and prefer it overall to my X5000. I'm simply astounded by the image, even at 43", sat at the same distance of approx 3.5 meters I do from my 120" PJ image.

    Though not a darkroom the X5000 in my light to medium coloured room just can't compete. Only main area my X5000 seems to win to me is video processing perhaps, motion and pans seem smoother. Even projecting at 55" my X5000 could not come close to the Sammy in HDR and overall image quality.

    Chose the Sammy over the Panny CX700/ C750B, despite the smaller screen, the spec and image quality is just jaw dropping and am glad I did. Looking to sell it actually to upgrade to a similar spec/ line with a 50 or 55" screen.

    What are you upgrading/ switching too?

    Look forward to your reply, Joust, thanks!

    Nice! I trust you'll be making better use of it than I did/ am with my X5000 as not a dedicated dark room. If I decide to improve my room conditions, I might hold out till Spring 2017 for JVC X5500, see what the deal is, or for price drops, but otherwise it's just not worth it for me, even with price drops. I'd be better of with the TW7300 for my room. Very content with my TV for now.

    X7000! :thumbsup: Enjoy!

    :)

    I have a W1080ST+ that i'm looking to sell in the new year, the + model has horizontal keystone and wireless option over W1080ST. It has less than 20hrs use (I need to check exact). Will be selling as I need a normal throw now, not short throw.

    Thanks dave, but have since been reunited with my JVC X5000 (long ordeal with dealer).

    Re. Short throw, honestly, in all my experience, the Benny is he budget King of DLP PJs for me, and many. I wrote extensively on them on here in a few threads. Highly acclaimed and popular PJs for reason. It was Art Feierman who said the W1070S/ W1080ST are just as regarded as home theatre quality, as they are for casual installs.

    I will assume that the W1070ST is still too long for you, right?

    I would never use keystone and am highly sensitive with a good eye, to image quality. For example, I currently have my JVC mounted dead centre, so no need for any lens shift. But will probably do a ceiling installation at some point if I can live sacrificing with the sharpness/ focus loss and any misconvergence as an effect.

    Is 3D a must, and low input lag?, for you dave?

    Epson have a wide range of good PJs. I used to use Optoma way back too.

    Great choice, I strongly considered it, but I knew I wouldn't be fully satisfied, knowing that I knew what I'd be getting with the X5000 after being with JVC for so long.

    I also based my opinion on many of the av folk who chose the X5000 over the TW7300/ TW9300 after demoing both. Have eagerly been awaiting Art's full review on the TW7300, but I saw avforums review is now up too so going to have a read and watch video review too.

    I used to be with Epson before JVC, but fell out of love and agreement after too many bad/ poor samples at the higher TW range (9000 and 91000) and change of the image. My favourite Epson was the TW5500, had the legendary HQV Radeon video processor, also used by JVC at the time (not sure if they still use it or a current iteration of it). I found the 5500 to be so beautifully 'filmic', and had some of the most 'inky' blacks I'd ever seen. However, when I first turned on my JVC X3 I was impressed even more, with what a projected image could do.

    That said, very grateful for the TW7300 in the market, excellent price and the low input lag. Hope you enjoy it.
