I ordered this projector and it was shipped from Buy Direct and Save (which may or may not be the AV Toy Store listed as the seller, it's unclear). The projector arrived earlier than expected, but the gears to control left and right image shift had become misaligned during shipping. I have to say that Buy Direct and Save has been EXCEPTIONAL about handling the RMA and getting me a new projector. They have a customer service representative in NY that has worked with me through the whole process, and he has been helpful and understanding the whole time. It's not the fault of Buy Direct that there was the damage, it's a complicated set of mechanics that sometimes might need replacement. That said, Buy Direct and Save has been about as good as one could expect in assisting on the return. It's been a process of a couple weeks, which is a little frustrating just because I want to start using the projector, but I can also see this whole experience having gone in a much worse direction...
Amazing projector BUT note it will not play 3D blurays unless using a 4K Bluray Player. The HDCP handshake prevents the 3D from playing unless the bluray player is HDCP 2.2 compliant. All the tech support at JVC did not know this. I had to find out on my own. So I went from my OPPO BDP-93 to a Samsung UBD-K8500 3D Wi-Fi 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player and the Projector must be on HDMI 2.
Replaced a dead Sony VPL-HW45ES projector. I've been happy with several Sony's in the past, but since this Sony actually died I couldn't justify returning my business to them. The 4K price-point sold me on the JVC. Just installed last night, but so far it is a much better projector all around than the Sony ES series. Sony no longer integrates a fully motorized lens in this price range, and the JVC does - but the benefits of the JVC go well beyond that small advantage. Image quality is fantastic, even playing 1080p content, it's a striking difference. The image has no warping. Focus at the edges is just as sharp as in the center. It's really nice. The JVC is much heavier and the ceiling mount holes are at the far four-corners of the projector, so you need a HUGE mount. I reused my old ceiling mount, but it required significant custom modification.
