I would go for it. Why wait? 4K might be worth investing in, say, 4-5 years down the road. But right now 1080p is in full stride... And it looks fantastic. I'd say get it and enjoy it.

I'd say go and have a demo of the Sony VW50ES and the JVC X35.

Re: Panasonic 4k 3d projector

You should also consider Mitsubishi HC9000D (HC5) and Sony HW50. I'd personally go for Mitsu HC5!

I would say the nod to the best overall 2D picture quality (between the Panasonic and JVC) goes to the JVC. Two different technologies... Primarily the JVC doesn't rely on an auto iris and has much better blacks.

The Sony 50 and JVC are more comparable in tat department... The Sony probably has better 3D capabilities and the JVC has an advantage because of auto memory zoom (if you have a 2.40:1 screen you'll want this). JVC also has created the 4k eshift technology that is on the 35.

Bottom line, you get in this price range and the projectors are all really nice. If I were you, I'd make a list of the things that are most important to you (lumens, 2D capability, 3D capability, motion modes, lens memory, etc) and read professional reviews (projectorreviews and projector central are decent starting points).

I ended up with my JVC because I did my own head-to-head, JVC vs Panny, in my theater room. The JVC won out for my needs. Your needs/wants may differ, tho.

Re: Panasonic 4k 3d projector

Just to point out that the X35 does not have Eshift, you need to move up to the X55/75/95 models for that feature.

The JVC lens memory seems very consistent though I only use it for small adjustments when I move my A Lens.
