The W500 will have the edge in placement flexibility and also has incredibly low video-lag. The HQV processing is also spectacular, it scales 1080p content down to 720p superbly.
If you're a gamer, it's a great projector. If you're a movie-nut, you're going to be bothered by having to sacrifice your black-levels to get shadow-detail to show up.
I have a W500, and I'm thinking about snagging a Planar 7060 if I can mount it in exactly the same place. I'm sensitive to DLP-rainbows, but I'm willing to give it a shot for the price. I can sell either one for not much of a loss depending on which one I go with.
I don't play too many games anymore on my projection setup other than Rock Band. Everything else gets played on my LCD computer monitor from my 360 (because I can play at any time of the day, rather than only at night when its dark).
