The title says it all, I can get refurbished w1500 for $1250 or new w1070 for $899. The price difference is negligible to me, which one is the better machine for mostly watching 2d movies in the environment with variable ambient light amount (family room, some light during day time, dark at night)? Another option is a refurbished w7000 for $1500.
Thanks!

If you like Frame Interpolation (motion smoothing), I'd say it's worth it.

Otherwise....well.....

(On the other hand, I think that Big River just knocked another Benjamin off their new units....so....)

Thanks, PrimeTime!
Forgive my ignorance, who is "Big River" and what unit are you referring to?
Thanks!

The unit involved is the one you were considering as a Refurb.

The river in question is the largest in the world, located in Brazil. It is the namesake for the largest e-seller in the universe whose name we dare not speak in these parts -- although, to be fair, I think the same deal may be available right now from one of the AVS sponsors (check them out).
