Looking forward to release and early reviews... seriously hope it is more than just a color wheel update... from the specs on the chinese site, the only differences are a mention of the color wheel (6x), higher max power consumption (presumably to spin the color wheel faster and conduct a bit more processing for 6x), a bit noisier (again due to a color wheel), and a tiny bit lighter weight. Other than that, it looks very much like the W7000... the chinese site is even using w7000 pics on the w7500 page. The W7000 already was advertised as using the lamp dimming, maybe they've improved that algorithm a bit to be used in conjunction with the DI. With so much spec similarity with the W7000, it does not look like any changes to the optics/lightpath are in play, and thus a drastic improvement in native contrast is unlikely. Still DLP link, maybe DC3 upgrade (but with same light path that could be a very limited improvement), 6x color wheel. Still hoping for a rabbit out of the hat though.
