ATLANTA, September 23, 2010 – JVC U.S.A. today introduced a low-cost home theater projector that for the first time provides advanced D-ILA technology at an entry-level price. The new projector, to be marketed as the DLA-HD250 by JVC Consumer and the DLA-HD250Pro by JVC Professional, is priced below $3,000 and delivers 25,000:1 native contrast ratio and 1,000 ANSI lumens brightness.
I know ... "old" Cedia 2010 news ... but they are officially shipping starting today. I should be getting mine in time for the weekend :)

Excellent. The performance of projectors keep going up as the price is going down. You will enjoy!
good to know...unofficially ;)
I just saw a demo of the JVC HD250 in a professional installation. With Blu-Ray material it was absolutely stunning. However, I played a standard definition DVD and there were very obvious jagged edges on any images with diagonal lines, and with all text (credits).
A good solution is to add a DVDO Edge to the signal path if your BD player is capable of outputting resolutions natively. I've seen some dealers selling these things at $499 now. Make it the "video brain" of the system and set your projector to 1:1 pixel mode. The second HDMI output from the Edge goes to an a/v receiver or preamp for audio. Feed all video sources natively through the Edge and you are laughing. I use the DVDO DUO in my house and on installations and have not looked back. (It's the next model up with colour management which is required on the HD250.) DVDO Edge
