I have watched a variety of programming on my RS1 including Lost, American Idol, CSI Miami, Heroes, House etc. and it all looks just about as good as I have seen it with my Sharp 20K. In fact, after spending more time with the RS1, I will venture to say, that the majority of the scenes I have watched, look superior on the RS1. There are only an occaisional scene, where I feel that the Sharp would be superior. It could be that I am just adjusting to the image of the RS1, but I don't think so. The colors look richer to me on the RS1, and I feel this is due to the native CR (not an oversaturation issue).
Last night, I also popped in Dark City, and Revenge of the Sith, and they looked the best I have ever seen on any projector. Really, Really satisfying levels of black.
I would also like to comment on brightness. For me, the combination of 133" High Power, and the RS1 (long throw) is the perfect marriage. Although it is at the lower end of the lumen range, there are scenes that are almost painfully bright. I calculate that I am getting about 20fl, with my screen, and I left some lights on last night while watching AI, which I couldn't do with my Sharp. As the bulb ages, it will drift down into the ideal range, for lights off viewing. In the mean time, I may consider a mild ND filter, if I find some viewing to be too bright.
