JVC has a deserved reputation for top-tier home theatre kit – the only problem is it tends to be a bit pricey. That makes the LX-NZ30 a cause for celebration: this new laser-powered 4K DLP beamer offers JVC’s expertise without the painful price premium.
It uses a DLP chipset rather than JVC’s own D-ILA technology to keep costs down, but also adds the BLU-Escent laser light source found further up the range. That means an eye-scorching 3300 lumens of brightness, and a claimed lifespan of 20,000 hours. Add in JVC’s class-leading HDR tone-mapping, plus slick 1080p/240Hz low-latency gaming, and you have a projector that’s ideal for big-screen movie nights and marathon gaming sessions.
