Nice review of the W5000. Having read many of your projector reviews I have noticed you sometimes publish contrast numbers, and sometimes not. Any chance you could post CR measurements on the W5000?
Also, some other reviews have indicated the W5000 suffers from an image noise problem on HD sources. As you pointed out, the noise reduction menu on the W5000 does not function on HD resolution sources. Owners of the W5000 have differing views on this issue, some claim the 'noise' is just film grain that the sharpness of the W5000 reveals. Your review did not mention any noise problems, so I was wondering if you noticed this issue?
