The W6000 is a bit too green in brightest mode, but boy does it have the lumens when you need them. It's 1750 lumens we measured in "brightest" mode, smokes the other projectors in this Mid-Price class. The LG is the next brightest with 1380 and then the Epsons with 1309. Still they are all at least 20% less bright.
All of the rest of the projectors in this class are down at least 40% from the BenQ.
OK, the color's not what you hoped for in brightest, but those lumens are there when you need them. If you insist or much better color, change modes, say bye-bye to about 500 lumens but the W6000 still remains one of the brightest projectors, and for that matter, when you do that, the BenQ has better color than the Epsons (leaving only the LG, better and brighter).
You will just love theW6000's sharpness. Is it the sharpest of the DLP projectors - no, but it is one of the sharpest. You have to love that for sports and HD digital content.
OK, your choices with the BenQ W6000 - for sports 1750 screaming lumens, when absolutely needed. About 1250 lumens complete with very good color. I seriously doubt you would want to use the BenQ W6000 in brightest mode for Discovery HD type content, but 2nd brightest will look great, and very bright.
So, if HDTV and Sports are your primary thing, then this BenQ, along with the LG andEpson's are the way to go.
