I had second thoughts about posting this... the W1200 is not too popular here on AVS. I picked one up when Amazon had it for $942, then the price dropped after they shipped mine. Oh well.

Now $896.23 at Amazon. I couldn't resist at that price. Upgrading from Mits HC1600 720p. We'll see.

Good price. I noticed that earlier today, and asked Amazon for a price match since I paid $942.xx on NOV 24. They did match their own price... so I got it for 896.23 too. They only price match TVs, so I got lucky.

I just read their price match policy and was wondering whether they considered projectors to be "TVs". I was on the fence about ordering since tomorrow is "Cyber Monday." With my luck, they'll drop the price again. Good to know that if they do, they will give me the same deal.

I hope this projector looks as good as I expect. I was ready to buy the w6000, but at this price, the w1200 is at least worth trying out!

Good luck with yours!

I asked them about that one time and they said that it was only for tv's and not projectors

Nice to know it depends on the rep you talk to.

When I opened a chat with an Amazon CSR, CSR stated that projectors are not TVs. I am a prime member, and have been for a few years now, so maybe that's why I was cut a break?!?

My BenQ PE7800 (1024x576) died a few days ago... never saw RBE with it. Bought it in 2004.

Good luck!!

Forgot to mention... according to the CSR, Amazon does not charge return shipping if you refuse to accept the package. So if the price drops and they refuse to price match, then you can always buy a new unit and refuse to accept the first unit.

Maybe that's why I got the price match!! I asked the CSR if I would be charged return shipping if I refuse to accept the order. I had every intention of refusing and ordering a new unit for the cheaper price ($46 is not a lot, but I was willing based on principle). He was probably thinking that it'll be cheaper for Amazon to just price match rather than eat additional costs.

CSR offered to give me the match... so I did not have to do the monkey work of refusing, reordering, etc.
