I'm only considering grey to maintain some semblance of black. An upgrade in projectors might be the only solution, however, as the W1070 is weak in that arena. Otherwise, I agree that CW looks...

Yeah, I see it a lot with the 8Gs on the used market too.

$750 ballpark seems more reasonable for a 500m. I'll see what I can do. If anyone else has scored a 500m or the like recently, feel...

Does anyone remember how much the 500M sold for initially? Looking at a used one right now, and I feel like the seller is using an artificial MSRP to base his price. I thought they were priced less...
