JVC DLA-X700R: The best projector picture we've ever reviewed

Show summary: Yes, there are probably even better projectors available than JVC's DLA-X700R, but we haven't reviewed them and they likely cost even more. And yes, its cheaper line-mate is a better value. But none of that takes away from its incredible picture quality.

  • Short bio:

    At a young age I became enamored with gadgets, and was encouraged by a father who subscribed to, and actually bought stuff from, the DAK Industries Incorporated catalog (RIP dad). I eventually noticed that my initials were DAK, which I took as a life-changing sign. I would combine gadgets and writing and perhaps move from Oregon to NYC in the process. Everything worked according to plan, and here I am. Maybe someday I'll write about something else, but nowadays when I get home I'm too tired.
