    I have decided to replace my PJ in the next couple of months. I have had the JVC x70 demoed and it is an excellent machine with plenty of money left over
    Are they bringing out a new model soon, what about other manufacturers?
    It needs to be able to throw a 110" diag image from about 18'. I think I would like 3d although that is not a priority so if it is a 3d model it will also need to throw the 3d image the same length
    It needs to have a quiet fan with a reasonable bulb cost. We use our current pj over 2000 hrs a year and the present £450 a year bulb cost is becoming a bit tedious.

    Any help or advice appreciated

    I understand that Mitsubishi will be bringing out a new 4k native resolution model in the next couple of months that might be tasty at around £7.5k.

    Also JVC will have the X75 & X95 but they will not probably be that much better than the X70.

    Do you know when the new JVC pj is going to be released, also what has Sony to offer at the moment and how do they compare to the JVC?

    Sony have 3 models, HW30, VW95, and their flagship native 4K Sony 1000

    they are to introduce a HW50 based on the HW30 chassis possibly around end of September

    all excellent pj`s at their price point

    JVC will release 4 new models soon, around Oct/Nov, the X35,X55,X75,X95

    to be honest the existing lower/mid models, i`d say the JVC has better 2d performance with the Sony`s being better for 3d
