I suspect you might be right. Whether BenQ has come out with the W1070 to try to knock off their competition or not, they just might do so due to what the projector does so well. I'd be interested in your thoughts when you get to test one out.
I'm a new owner of the W1070 - but I also have the Epson 5010. And although the blacks are better with the 5010, the image isn't anywhere near as pleasing as from the W1070.
It's awesome that my $899.00 projector can so effortlessly kick my $2,600.00 projector's butt! For any Blu-ray that I really look forward to seeing in all-its-glory, it won't be my 5010 doing the projection.
In the room I have both units in, the little BenQ is able to fill the screen with the approx. 11' throw I have to work with! Nice!!! I have about 3 to 4 inches on both sides of the screen that the Epson can't reach. This alone is is a bonus . . . but the edge-to-edge sharpness and killer color offered for THE PRICE is astounding.
