Are you going to buy it or what? Surely some other pro reviewer can compare the quality diff between w7000 and w1070.
From one year to the next, specs on a cheaper unit can leapfrog that of the higher end unit from last year, for sure. It happens all the time in engineering/tech, it's really not all that uncommon. Take video cards. Today's 300 dollar card is last year's 550$ card. Same thing with the w7000 -> w1070, in theory. I don't own both, nor would ever buy a 3000 dollar projector (or even a 1600 dollar one, given how good this one is for 850). Seriously, the epson 3020 might be 30% better, but the cheap price + awesome specs are why I got this. under half of what I paid for my plasma!!! seriously, it's insane. Sure, 3D could be brighter, but 2D is plenty good enough, and no Epson supports display port yet AFAIK to circumvent the idiotic HDMI 1.4 60p input port bandwidth limitation. Heck, someone here even mentioned that projector manufacturers could spend one dollar more on the input port chip cost, to give you 60p in 3D. Why haven't they? I don't need better 2D, this one is insanely good for that. What I need is the best 3D, and for my gaming needs, that means 1080p/60 frame packed. Until Epson or some other guys can offer that, I'm not interested. I just watched some bits of the 3D recommended Sammy's Adventure in 3D, and it's really sweet. How much did I pay for this? I have a 3D MOVIE theater in my loft!!! For 8 fitty. insane
