Just ordered this projector and am awaiting delivery date. They say middle of November. Had my mind set on Optoma UHZ65 but for $1000 less and what looks like equal performance, I went with Acer.
I have demoed JVC RS520 (which had great HDR, but did not impress me in SDR), the Sony VW260 which had great SDR though on the low-side regarding light output, and the Acer V9800 which had good light, fantastic image in brighter scenes but bad contrast.
My hope is that the Acer VL7860 will be the perfect choice for me given the experiences with the three mentioned projectors.
