On paper I'd say the 640/990/9900 would walk away from the n5, will be better than the n7 and maybe better than the nx9 on contrast performance. But i agree seeing the new units is required to confirm.
Regarding color performance, it's not clear if the expanded gamut is something that will really jump out at you on the new units, but it will be a nice upgrade .
Regarding resolution, the nx9 is assuredly going to be the champion. The n5/n7 will have to prove the updated lens fares better than the last generation. I'm not clear if the updated lens is actually better than a good sample on the last generation projectors, or if the updated less will benefit from better QC, with good lenses ending up in all n5/n7 projectors. I'd love to know where those new lenses that fail the QC test end up.
At the end of the day, for me, enhanced resolution and modest gamut expansion is not enough for me to abandon my excellent 990. I also want superior contrast performance, so I'm willing to wait for the total package.
Will I be suffering from this choice? It sure doesn't feel like suffering, but if it is, I'd wish all poor choices resulted in such consequences.
