Got my 7000 yesterday. I upgraded from a 4000. Need to spend more time with it to calibrate. At first glance, the picture motion is notably smoother (likely faster panels). Mode 3 frame creation is liquidy smooth, but gives more of the soap opera effect. Great with sports. I always used Mode 3 on the 4000, but Mode 1 and 2 look great on the 7000 depending on the TV show. Blu rays look great. 3D AMAZING!!!! I like it bright, so I was using Normal or Dynamic with Light glasses and Normal lamp to get brightest picture.
I have a DVDO Edge for switching. It wouldn't work initially with the 3D. Then, I upgraded the firmware to 1.62 (see support on their website). Now it passes the 3D thru without a problem. So DVDO owners, you have to update the firmware!
So far so good, nothing funny with my projector. Screen looks clear corner to corner. I think focus seems better than my 4000. Could have been my 4000, never could get it focused perfectly.
I haven't noticed any ghosting in 3D. I'm probably just overwhelmed by the fantasticly clear picture in 3D (frame creation mode 3 great in 3D).
Projector much brighter, but I still like Normal mode the best (I like a bright picture). I have put the lamp in eco mode with everything but 3D so far and it is very bright.
Definately a different picture than the 4000. Getting used to it. Again, need to calibrate. (Using a 1.3 gain Carada screen).
