I compared it side by side with my previous Infocus 4805 projector (both connected via DVI on my HTPC). The 4805's have good OTB calibration, so I used it as a reference.
Kras is right about needing a reference. Heck, it's a little tough to get them to match up even with them side by side. I found I had to use a fairly wide range of material to get it right. It's easy to fix something, but screw up something else.
I used Monsters Inc (per Kras' advice) along with Avia and 2 or 3 other movies to come up with my settings.
I will say too, my user settings are only a modest improvement over the default "warm" color setting. As I stated before, if your 1000 is under 100 hours, I'd wait and see if the excess red problem tends goes away.
