I just couldn't help it. I hooked it up and watched:
1. Dark City: A very dark movie; good for testing black and contrast, I guess.
2. The Devil Wears Prada: A colorful movie; good for POP and colors.
There are many things I like about the W1100 and something I don't. The built-speakers are wonderful for what they are. I watched both movies using the those speakers at less than half the volume. They are a nice, convenient feature to have. I also hooked up my headphones to the audio output and used that. It's a nice feature to have when watching movies late at night without disturbing the person sleeping next to you.
The PQ is very good. Colors are vibrant almost pop out of the screen. I tried but couldn't find any RBE. Now I don't think I am sensitive to it. Don't hold me to this if you are different.
Yes, the fan is loud, but not much more than a typical DLP projector. Yes, the fan drifts in and out of low and high in the "economic" mode. I find this annoying during quiet parts of the movie because I am only 30'' from the projector. If ceiling/shelf mounted, the noise should not bother most people. I believe this is a safety feature of the projector, not a defect.
While the projector was on, I added a second HDMI cable to my laptop. This somehow messed up the signals to both HDMI outputs. I switched them around, but the problem remained. I turned the projector off and on (30 minutes later). The problem still remained. I removed the laptop HDMI cable. Now the other HDMI output had signal. I hooked the laptop HDMI cable back. There was no signal. I still don't know what really happened. I will return it if the problem persists.
A side-by-side picture with the Optoma HD70. The throw and offset works out perfectly. I don't have to change anything.
Table mounted next to my bed, the W1100 can fill a 92'' screen at the widest zoom at a throw distance of about 9'.
