I didn't notice any issues with the v1.0 back in December, it was razor sharp. the replacement will be here tomorrow and I'll let you guys know what I see.
I have used various Blu-Ray discs, I also have my HTPC running to it with XBMC. Both methods before produced a razor sharp image as you described with my W5000.
Basically the first thing I tried was swapping projectors with the exact same hardware config. I know I will have to upgrade a few components to get 3D working, but everything else should produce the same if not better image.
The first image I used for comparison was my XBMC main menu. Everything looked soft almost blurry. Then I noticed the cover art for my films were hard to focus on... My wife sat there while I tried adjusting the lens to get a better image and I got it as focused as I could.
Next I thought it was my HTPC hardware that was preventing the sharp image so I tried my PS3 next. When I got it up and running the XMB looked the same... soft almost blurry.
I then ran the cable directly from my PS3 to the projector and the image didn't change one bit so I then figured out it had nothing to do with my components.
I have messed around with every setting in that projector and still get the same results.
No I haven't tried any test patterns other than the BenQ one.
It's only been two days without my W5000 so it's easy for me to remember the quality difference.
