Nope, I didn't miss anything. I simply read more into it than you did.
"Probably" to my way of reasoning reads more like "I'm not sure what it will be".....and that there is a "possibility" the equation might be open to revision. Why is it that all too often people seem to read posts with tunnel vision?
I prefer not to see the impasse but rather the solution, if there is even the slightest possibility one might exist. In this case, one such solution obviously does.
Sorta like reading about the Guy who was sure he couldn't have a Screen because there was a Window at the only sensible location, or hang a PJ because there was a Fan or Light between the Screen and the desired / needed location. One has to get used to looking at an issue as having a solution as opposed to building roadblocks, or failing to look for the sign pointing to a viable and available alternative route.
While there are indeed problems that cannot be solved, offering up a solution tends to get most peoples adrenalin pumped and create action instead of lethargy.

I was under the impression he wanted to keep it well under $2k, and preferably at $1.5k or less, therefore the W1070.
Again, the post read, "
I'm not sure what our budget is, as I'm not the one with the checkbook - we were looking in the $1-2k range, and I'd say around $2k would be the upper limit of our budget. Are there compelling reasons to go higher?
I'd say that statement leaves the issue open for both discussion and suggestion. . At least smokarz
noted that there are compelling reasons to consider such an upgrade.
