The Panny even "with" SS is sharper than the Pearl...You need to just accept that because it is not opinion, it is fact.
The fact that you would take the word of PC over Jason Turk, cine4home, and Greg at WSR speaks volumes to your ignorance and lack of knowledge in the field of FP
By the way, these people/sights review all types of projectors so there is no bias, just straight hard facts and impressions. Many feel PC is a very biased sight and after the Z4/H79 remarks last year, I tend to agree.
The fact is the Pearl IS brighter than the 1000. Go read the reviews and you will see all have clocked the Pearl lumens (after calibration) at 7-800 lumens making it considerably brighter than the 1000.
As for the softness issue, I have made my point previously about that, which I interpret as smoothness and there is a difference. You dont agree, that is fine. Where opinions clash, freedom rings
I am glad you enjoy your 1000, but there is no way me or many others would own a SS projector at the 1080p level as it is completely useless and can only degrade the PQ to some degree. If you could take out that SS, your projector would look even better, no doubt about it.
What is the native CR of the 1000 by the way?
