Outstanding image quality is a given as long as I stay away from AWB, shoot RAW and tweak in LR, NX or Photoshop. I also have to keep buying batteries.

With large lenses the D1x feels just right and creates is robust kit. Not so great for action shooters - frame rate and buffer not state of the art anymore.
For the price paid these days second hand it could be a good deal neverless (depends on condition).

I also did a comparison between the D200, D70, Fuji S5 and the D1x. All images with the same lens (180mm f2.8 - very sharp), the weather was quite variable though so there will be colour variation from that too. The images are a cropped from original - about 10% of original or smaller.

Image quality is wonderful at ISO125 but degrades quickly if you use higher iso settings. Main drawbacks of the D1x: battery performance and high iso noise. You just don't want to use anything higher than iso 200. Maybe ISO400 with noise reduction software. If you nail the exposure iso 400 can be ok.
I honestly have had just the opposite experience after 4 years of shooting with the D1x. I feel very comfortable shooting up to 1600 ISO for some clients' low light needs. I have always felt that the large pixel pitch of this camera's sensor was a great ally in the quest for quality images in low light. I have to make pretty sure that I don't under expose enough to require lightening dark areas. My D300 is better at this but the D1x still holds its own. Yep...the battery stinks but every couple of years I get a couple at the Battery Barn and I'm back in business. I also stay WAY away from the AWB.

A3 prints are stunning and I wouldn't be concerned to print bigger.
I too get my batteries from BatteryBarn and have no issues. I also have an external battery pack that powers it and a Nissen 4000GW.
Exposing properly I have have very good results at 800 and 1600 ISO at the rink shooting figure skating and theater/dance outside concerts at night. It does Off Road GP Scrambles, CERT exercises and about everything else I can throw at it.
After trying both a D1X and a D200 I deliberately chose the D1X and haven't had one regret.
