Not much improvement. Color wheel changed to 6x, so does W1070. Added 2D to 3D conversion, do you really need this? Still full manual zoom and focus. Still 2000 lumen. Lamp life is only 2500 hours even in economy mode. To be honest I'm not impressed.

Thanks for posting this Thebes. Even looking at those specifications I still could not tell whether this was a dark chip 3. I want to assume it is since the 1070 was dc3. Anyone know?

Looks like a good improvement and refresh to me. This unit with its price point and technology involved is already at the edge of what it can offer. How much else do you guys want from a sub 2000 projector right now? :)


Bulb life is a product of type of bulb used. Yes, you can have longer lamp life but it would be a different technology and projector designers didn't like its characteristics. If longer life is important, what is wrong with Epson 3020 which is a better unit anyways....

So you think a color wheel speed bump from 4x to 6x is good improvement? That's the only real improvement IMO. The sub $1000 W1070 already do this so it is a catch up.


This W7500 should be W7001, or just a face lift in car terms.

The 7500 and 7000 is basically the same projector. The only reason to choose the 7500 over the 7000 if they are the same price. But since the 7000 should be cheaper, I don't see a reason to choose the 7500. If you don't need the lens shift, the W1070 is still a better buy

Yeah, I was hoping the new W7500 would be all the goodness of the W1070 + all the goodness of W1400 + the same form factor and lens shift/zoom of the W7000.


Boo.

They need to send one of these W7500s to Art at ProjectorReviews. My W5000 is getting long in the tooth and I want a new PJ with lower input lag. Not a huge fan of the louder noise design of the W6000, 7000, 7500 though... My W5000 on wisper is good because it's directly overhead.

I wonder what we will see for price on this.

After all the issues the prior model had for months after release I would be waiting this one out a while before considering a purchase.
