While the numbers across the range are exceptionally close, the W1000 (like the Vivitek) doesn't have the usual R,G,B controls for doing a grayscale balance to 6500K. Mike tried some work arounds, including the CMS (individual color tuning controls), but to no avail.
As a result, our final measurements are not as finely tuned as we had hoped, but I will say that the final output of the BenQ had just slightly better color, though the two often looked very similar.
I like the "best mode" color, and while not as good, the BenQ W1000 has a great looking "brightest mode".
As there are no grayscale adjustments available, all that can be done to get the best grayscale is to select User 2 (default Cinema mode) and adjust Brightness and Contrast. Unlike the W600, turning Brilliant Color off does not help grayscale, causing a sharp rise in color temp.
When Mike looked at gamma, gamma was preset to 2.4. Gamma measured 2.38. That will make your first choice of gamma settings to be 2.2, which should be close to dead on.
