I was in the under 3K forum and posted this http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1200444
And am now turned towards looking at the BenQ which Projector People has on sale till mon for $2300 (assuming this is a good deal?) which I now have a tossup between the 8500 and the W6000.
I have lots and lots of ambient light, white walls, white ceiling, not ideal room. But will do most movie watching at night and Sunday footballs though mid day with giant windows shudders behind the viewing area.
Just getting reviews online re: the W6000 vs. the 8500 and I wanted some advice here from you guys. For you BenQ owners any of you have ridiculous ambient light situations like mine? What kind of screen do you have? i'm thinking the Da-Lite High Power but am concerned of the viewing angle. Based on my room btw I dont' think I can go bigger than 100" since i'm 11' seating and have speaker placement issues.
