I have owned a Qumi Q2 projector for about a year and would like to upgrade. Although I liked the Qumi, it has a few shortcomings that I want to avoid in my next projector:

  • crushed black levels ("muddy" image on dark scenes and bad shadow detail)
  • posterisation of skin tones on panning portrait shots
  • strange dithering or shimmering effect during panning which may have been related to BrilliantColor
  • borderline too-dim for anything beyond 90"

I'm leaning toward the BenQ W1070 but I've also got my eyes on the optoma 131XE since it's a newer model. Apparently the black levels are still somewhat crushed on the W1070 but I can't tell if it's better or worse than the Qumi. Can any owners of budget projectors make a suggestion? My budget is around the $1000 mark.
