Great price on Newegg! Just enter the coupon code displayed on the linked page. This has free shipping and no tax for most States as well.

Not really - the BenQ is probably the better projector. However, there are advantages, like price smile.gif.
Not sure if this is proper protocol, if not - sorry! Here's projectorreviews.com's review of these 2 against each other (with the Epson 3010 thrown in):

BenQ W7000 vs. Epson Home Cinema 3010 and Acer H9500BD

These two are both very bright, and lower cost projectors that sell for about $1000 less. Both would make an interesting alternative, if you don't have the money to invest in the W7000. The Acer H9500BD offers very good black levels - probably pretty close to the W7000, while the Epson 3010's blacks aren't as good.

Calibrated, the BenQ is by far the brightest, but the other two are still brighter than most other projectors when calibrated. The Epson can hold its own in 2D max brightness with the BenQ, the Acer, not so much. 3D - the Acer, like the BenQ - it seems DLPs in general, perhaps, get less light out when doing 3D. Perhaps it relates to ghosting, and the glasses settings on projectors like the Epson. The Epson with glasses set for minimum ghosting/crosstalk, may not be any brighter than that Acer, and not much more than the BenQ, but the medium setting of the Epson will make it the brightest of the three. All offer lens shift, Epson has the best warranty.

Without a doubt, I favor the W7000 over both lower cost projectors, but, especially the Acer, makes a good lower cost alternative that is similar in many ways. The Acer, though doesn't calibrate as well as the other two.
