For Sharpness and 3D as well as being good for gaming?

The 7000 would have better blacks, I haven't seen any lag reports on the W1070, with some tests showing the W7000 being, around 35ms. 2 frames at 60Hz refresh rate?

Only by using the dynamic iris (which is largely unusable). W1070's native contrast is higher. W1070 lacks frame interpolation and placement flexibility. W7000 has a DC2 DLP chip, W1070 has DC3. I haven't seen both projectors side-by-side, but judging by everything I know W1070 is a better value, imo.

It is not largely unusable. In dark scenes (which is where black level counts the most), it is very effective. There may be better iris implementations, but it works quite well when it counts the most.

I do think the W1070 would be a good choice for gaming and 3D though from what I've read (I have the W6K). Otherwise the biggest advantage of the W7000 is placement flexibility. It has much better lens shift and a longer zoom range. Just depends on the room you're putting it in whether this is an issue or not.
