    Hi to everyone,
    I searched all the forum and I could not find specific buying advice for JVC projector:
    I came across a store which sells new JVC X30 and new JVC X9 for the same price (I'm not too interested in 3D and I watch only documentaries and movies).
    The main differences between the X30 and X70/X90 are contrast and 4K. Since the X9 has better contrast than the X30, and both don't have 4K, I would assume that the X9 is better suited to my needs than the X30.
    Please advice and comment! Help me chose what's better for my needs.
    Thanks in Advance!

    hi guys
    Kevin is giving great advice, 'cept:
    If the dealer has multiple of those PJ's in stock, then rotate through all of them until you find one that doesn't have convergence errors.
    I highly doubt that a dealer would allow you do to the above (unless they are selling at full retail and also charging for installation).
    Also remember that convergence can change depending on the throw distance (an optical alignment issue) and also on projector orientation.
