Elite is fine. If you are in a dark room and can use a fixed frame screen, then the Elite white screens or the Silver Ticket screens (Amazon) do a really good job for the money.

Sony & JVC are close. I would get the 285 in a second if it was in budget. It's a heck of a deal, especially if you can see it before you buy it. I wouldn't be willing to lay down money on the Sony or JVC being 'better'. They are both excellent.

The jvc n Sony are almost double the price of epson, is there that big of a performance gap between them to justify the price of jvc n Sony? What exactly would the epson be lacking?

The actual lens quality, the overall hardware, and the use of LCoS technology vs. LCD. Both the JVC and Sony are native 4K projectors (newest JVC) as opposed to a pixel shifting or e-shift version. The previous JVC models can be had under $3,000 and are priced near the Epson 5040 model. They deliver a quality of contrast which the Epson simply can't touch and once again have a build quality which is just a fair bit better than Epson. Not that Epson does a bad job, but JVC has a long track record of very high quality and reliability. Power supplies, lens, parts and pieces. The JVC projectors weigh in about 25% heavier than Epson projectors despite similar size.

My mentality, since I have a reasonable 1080p projector right now, is that I couldn't justify spending $2,300 or so on a top of the line Epson 5040, when the JVC RS440 exists and can be found (with patience) used for $2,500 or so. In a few years we will see all the native 4K models, like the Sony 285, coming in well under $3,000. But, in a good room, Sony and JVC rule the roost.

I had some basic BenQ DLP 720p projector for $400 bucks I think it was. It was so good lol I couldn't tell the difference between it and 1080p to be honest although I didn't compare them side by side. Maybe DLP has an advantage of LCD projectors in looks.
