Did you happen to measure brightness in 3D? How significant is the brightness difference from the BenQ W7000 in 3D (both with decent color and in brightest mode)? The screens used to evaluate the two projectors, while different, should be comparable from a brightness perspective (101 wide 2.35 @ 1.1, vs 120" 16:9 @1.3 gain... given that, one would expect the same image thrown onto the 101" wide screen to be roughly 10% less bright than the 120" screen... is this consistent with the brightness difference, or was the W7000 noticeably brighter in 3D?

Was the 'film mode' option set to 'auto' or 'off'? It seems odd that the projector would have a 'film mode' intended to handle 24p content properly and simply use 3:2 pulldown to get to 120Hz.

Just took delivery of this unit yesterday. Worked on calibrating it most of the night (calman, i1pro, C6, DPG2000) There is no additional software in the box or on the sharp site. The stuff built in is the same as what is listed in the users guide no not updated. I called the service center and they didn't know anything about it (not surprising) The 1 point WB works rather well as you stated, however the custom gamma adjustments caused severe posterization with only minor use. Prior to calibration a 21 point gray gradient was displayed with red banding. This did not improve after calibration Opening the iris did help a little with the banding but need the iris closed. Please, can you help me get hold of this software or new firmware or something? I will have to resell this new projector, the 8 year old HC3000 that it is replacing looks many times better.
