I another note I also really am impressed with the remote. It has plenty of direct adjustment buttons on it. It also lights up nicely...

How do you find the brightness of the VW60 as compared to the Ruby or other projectors that you may have viewed? Approximately what throw ratio do you have the VW60 set to? What size and gain is your screen?

Joerod, does the black pearl have the new sony ability to dial in convergence to within a1/2 pixel for each color or is that only on the upper end pj

If I can be guaranteed 15,000:1 CR with the Sanyo PLV-Z2000, I'm getting that. If the Sanyos can get at least 15,000:1, even with a IFC calibration, at more than $1,500 less I can afford to get it calibrated. I don't see why I would want to risk getting a unit that's even less contrast than the original Pearl! I could care less about the Black Pearl being "sharper" and the convergence control. IMHO the colors were just fine too with the settings posted by SOWK, so colors aren't an issue with the Pearl either. I have 20/15 vision and from about two feet from a Pearl on a 92" FH SST, I didn't think it was "soft" at all. It's a shame that Sony makes such a great product and then can't get their act together to make sure every single unit is OOTB exactly the same as all the other units. Sony did the same thing by rushing out the PS3 before it was ready and had to release a ton of patches.

CR is crazy per unit according to cine4home, without calibration, it varies wildly (3000 to 1 to 6500 to 1).

Quoting numbers without calibration is meaningless. The only thing that matters is what it does after careful calibration. These LCoS DI projectors are not as easy to calibrate as a DLP projector. It can often take some effort to optimize their total performance.

When will we see a production review with brightness measurements?
