JVC DLA-X500R Three-Chip D-ILA 3D Projector Review


Likes Dislikes So just how far has JVC come in the last five years? Well there's no doubt that the X500R beats my Anthem in the black level and contrast department; not by a ton but certainly enough that I could see a difference. I think that I was...

JVC DLA-X500R 4k Projector Review


What you are seeing here with the JVC DLA-X500R is a projector with exclusive 4K e-shift3 technology that can accept Native 4K 60 frames per second through 4K enabled HDMI inputs and up-converts to exist 1080p sources to 4K.

4K video with a low-priced projector ; Capable of 3D with an emitter ; 4,000 hours of standard lamp mode ; Smartphone app for control ; Different Picture modes

Technically, not true 4K, but probably good enough ; Problems with dark-room watching ; No THX or ISF modes

I suppose that the best way to describe the JVC DLA-X500R is to classify it as “an inexpensive 4K projector”. Of course, it is so much more, but this would be the brand consumers will probably give it. There is no doubt that consumer interest in very...

JVC DLA-X500R 3D D-ILA Projector Review


The combination of the DLA-X500R's performance and value make it a favored pick in JVC's current line.

Performance close to higher-end models; Excellent dynamic iris

HDMI slow to lock onto signals; Annoying gamma tracking after 100 hours

JVC DLA-X500R D-ILA Projector Reviewed


You've heard me and plenty of other reviewers say it: so far, the benefits of 4K/Ultra HD have been difficult to discern in the TV realm, where affordable screen sizes just aren't large enough to see an obvious step up...

What's the final verdict on the JVC DLA-X500R? It totally depends on whether you're in the market for some type of 4K bridge device or just a high-performance 1080p projector. If you're looking for a 4K-friendly projector that completely anticipates...

JVC's new projector isn't as 4K as it thinks it is, but it is still brilliant

Stunning, contrast rich picture quality, Superb motorised lens system, E-Shift 4K system works well so far as it goes, but...

High input lag for gaming, Motion with 3D lacks a little solidity, ...It's not truly a 4K projector

hcc best buy

Expert review by : John Archer (



The 4K world is confusing for punters. Is it 4K or UHD? Do you need an HDMI 2.0 socket for proper 4K playback? Is ‘true' 4K 4,096 x 2,160 or 3,840 x 2,160? What compression/coding format will eventual 4K discs use? And so it goes. Frankly, the last...

Class-leading contrast performance; impressive 3D pictures; motorised lens with plenty of zoom; e-shift 3 works well with HD sources

High input lag a problem for gaming; it’s not a true 4K projector
