This projector needs to achieve JVC contrast and blacks for me since I'm a black 'fanatic'. Actually I hoped it would be a scanning solution with zero light for black. The first projector to make credits look like letters are floating in a black hole with no support whatsoever. That seems to be as elusive as ever, though. If contrast remains low I'll have to wait for it to improve before I could use this projector. I want something like 100000:1 and better.
