My BenQ DV3750 arrived today, and all that I've found about it on AVS Forum is speculation. So, I figured that I'd start an owner's thread. I'll paste the specs in below, I've lifted them straight from Crutchfield, but I've corrected the component video input count (there are definitely 2).
Besides Crutchfield, AVS Forum sponsor TV Authority is also selling this unit, MSRP is $2499. Both vendors list the resolution as 1920x1080p, although all documentation that comes with the set indicates that it will only accept up to 1080i input. What they mean is that all inputs are scaled to 1080p by the Faroudja chip in this set.
Note, prior to this set I had (in order) a Samsung LN-R409D and Sony KDL-V40XBR1. I kicked the Sony to the curb a scant 5 minutes after the BenQ arrived today. Look at my post history for diatribes about my issues with those sets, but in summation the Samsung had aesthetic issues (shiny bezel) and less brilliant colors than the Sony, while the Sony showed too many compression artifacts in D* and OTA HD and SD broadcasts.
I'm literally just getting the settings dialed for the BenQ at this point, but already I'll say that SD looks better than the Sony ever did and I tweaked that thing until my wife was ordering a straightjacket. The settings on the BenQ aren't as extensive as the Sony, but they have a much more dramatic impact on the image displayed. Also, the picture settings seem to be saveable by input by resolution. So, component input 1 "Personal1" setting can be set for 480i input and 1080i separately. The set recalls the image setting depending on the resolution fed (my Hughes D* box output is switchable and it took a lot of playing around to confirm this). This pretty cool, since settings to get good SD are a lot different from optimal HD setup.
My set is monitor-only, I am using a Hughes HR10-250 connected via Component and SVideo for tuning and my HT setup for sound. I connected HDMI>DVI for a trial, but it did not pass 480i and it disables the Component output on the Hughes so I figured that I'd try Component for a while.
