Yes, BenQ was in Smart-Eco mode.
My viewing environment does not lend itself to easily discerning incremental changes in black levels from one projector to the next. IMO the Sharp does not have a significant advantage over the BenQ with regard to black level. I guess it is time to dig out the Nikon and take some comparison pics.Think people will be surprised.
Based on the projectors I have seen, under 2K Best in Class for the Sharp from Mr. Feierman is probably warranted based on the projectors feature set and 3D capabilities. However, I believe that if someone was dissatisfied with the image of a well dialed in BenQ W1070, they would most likely be dissatisfied with the Sharp as well.
As always, 'ya pays yer money and 'ya takes yer chances. Especially when you buy a projector sight unseen based on the word of someone else.
