He was saying the opposite, he was saying his JVC appears to have better focus uniformity, and I can agree with that. The w1070 doesn't quite have the focus purity that the JVC's do, or even the w7000 (I'd say this is the one area where I think the w7000 beats the w1070). Still, can't say for sure since there can always be sample variance even with DLP. However, my w7000 and JVC RS-45 both have pretty much perfect focus uniformity, the w1070 I saw went out a tiny bit on the edges, but let me stress it was a SMALL amount and still I'd consider the w1070 sharper than other cheaper DLP's like the Mits hc4000 or Optoma hd33...
The Benq w1070 isn't really sharper than the JVC's overall, but depends on how good your DLP sample is vs. your JVC sample. Basically, the Benq can look sharper in movies due to pixel fill, but it's a bit more of an edgy look. The JVC is more paper natural sharp. In HTPC, even then it's close with probably the tiniest edge to the Benq, but really that's enhanced by a less-dense pixel fill. I used to prefer the JVC in HTPC over the Benq, now I'd say they are about the same after I got used to an edgier look.
I wouldn't use sharpness as a reason to pick any of these three projectors, the JVC or the Benqs, they are all too close.
