As good as the JVC HD-1 is, I think the latest projectors have come a long way since the JVC was realised. I reckon the Epson would be a better all round projector, whilst the JVC has it's highlights. Dan201, congrats on the purchase. I'm sure you will be happy. I know I am. My mates were blown away with the image. One saying the picture was better than his mid range 50" Panasonic plasma. What postage did you go with and did you get him to undervalue it for customs?
