Mits HD1000U vs. Sharp DT-500

Has anybody seen both of these projectors in action. I was all set to buy the Mits, but after reading about the DT-500 I have been having second thoughts. I know the Sharp it a little more expensive, but with recent price drops it appears the Sharp can be bought for approx. $400 more than the Mits. I know the Sharp is probably better, but is it worth the extra money. Are there any reviews on the DT-500? I know it is similar to the Z3000 and I read Art's review on the Z3000, which does give a brief comparison with the Mits. Lastly, I know the Sharp has a much smaller offset than the Mits, but how do the zooms compare. I need to mount my projector approx 13 or 14 feet from my 92 inch screen. What do you guys think?

It's worth the extra money if you want deeper blacks and a more 3D like rich looking image. The difference is very noticeable. Whether or not it's worth the difference will vary from person to person.

The DT-500 can do a very short throw. So, that's good for some.
