I quickly checked and except dlna i see nothing.
Regarding 3D, i can't confirm but new one is 3D ready.
That's probably my mistake then. If the pa1000 has all the WiFi, DLNA, and 3D options of the pa75, then it can be considered the same and not a step backwards except that it's more expensive. The only serious feature it lacks from the pa77 is the additional audio output (optical I think)..and they may end up priced the same.
People should be aware that there aren't any new LED sources coming out yet that are hitting over 700lumens in inaccurate settings where white is noticeably brighter than colors, and around 400-450lumens in more accurate settings. These same brightness levels have been around for a couple years and will likely stick around for a while longer. Measured contrast hasn't beaten 1500:1 yet either.
Be aware, both these numbers are very solid for any projector under $1800-2000 and the things you are actually losing (lower noise levels and ceiling/rear-shelf mounting flexibility and ease) are the only big issues for those who require them..and these LG's tend to be very quiet in all but the brightest mode, so they mostly suffer a loss for those looking to mount instead of table or tripod.
The main issue is that LG already offers either the same for less (pa75) or more for the same (or cheaper) with the pa77. I'd love to see these 720p models slip closer to the $500 range. They already offer more than average by keeping color and tint settings available for ALL inputs, having handy extra features that help cut through lighter rooms, good wireless, great smooth 3D, and the quietest fans I've witnessed in any projector smaller than a 2gallon container. It just hurts to see the same model re-released as a refresh at the same price or higher, year after year. It's a very solid product, but I'd like to see the price reflect its age.
