I got my new 7000 yesterday and didn’t waste any time firing it up. What a beefy lookin unit! It looks like a light cannon! All I can say is, WOW! I am impressed! No regrets, for sure. And 3D is amazing. I like!
I’ve read reviews from others that bought older models that said out of the box it needed some tweaking before the picture looked great, and that’s what I was expecting. So I was surprised to see that the picture looked dam nice right out of the box. I did a little tweaking but not much. I’ll be calibrating it tonight but I’ll lay odds I won’t have to do much. The whites look great and the blacks aren’t anything to shake a stick at either! During one scene, with low ambient light near the seating area, the screen actually disappeared into the dark background. That was impressive to me cuz I never saw that with my HD33! I assume that’s due to the iris on the 7000, which, by the way, I noticed was not very loud on this unit at all. Maybe that’s another fix they’ve done.
I see that this unit was manufactured last November. So it IS one of the newer models with the internal fixes that were loaded with firmware 1.00.
At this point I really don’t have any complaints. The fan does get a little louder in 3D mode as the lamp brightens, but it’s not so loud that I find it to be annoying.
