JVC DLA-X30

FOR CINEPHILES

Contrast ratio is the most important aspect of picture quality – it's what gives an image depth and filmlike realism. This projector has one of the best contrast ratios of any display we've ever tested: Its image is stunning, with bright whites and black levels so low they disappear into a darkened room. We'd pick this projector over others at several times the price. [$3,500; jvc.com]
