I'm upgrading from a Sharp XV-Z3000 which is one loud mofo and I wouldn't mind silence.
The W6000 is not too loud, in my experience with it. The DI is a bit noisy to me, but it can be turned off. ("Dynamic Black" is the setting that turns it off.)
I've had mine for a couple of weeks and had intended to return it due to problems getting the vertical lens shift to match what's stated in the manual, and rainbows being a bit more noticeable than I'd like. However I've managed to tweak both somewhat, though the image shift still didn't do exactly what I needed and I ended up having to use some keystone adjustment. I'm still not completely set on keeping it - want to and might try the Sony VPL-HW15 if I can confirm that its vertical shift range would work for me.
