Well, I've had it a few days now and I'm VERY impressed. I wanted to calibrate it and watch a few movies before posting my thoughts. The W1000 is a nice upgrade from my Mits. HD1000. It is a 1080p, DLP projector, so of course it's an upgrade in resolution. It struck me immediately that the W1000 is brighter and sharper than the HD1000. It is VERY sharp. It is also very quiet in low power mode, a little quieter than the HD1000. The black levels are darker than the HD1000. Not a huge difference, but noticeable. There are also numerous options for those to like to tweak the image. A lot of them I haven't even touched. Is it worth $999? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!
