I presume it's the same as the W6000. With no vents in the back (intake and exhaust fans are located on the sides/front) it shouldn't be too bad.

Do not place the projector in any of the following environments:
- space that is poorly ventilated or confined. Allow at least 50 cm clearance from walls and free flow of air around the projector

Any word yet on price or avail on the W7000?

We could do a mini-shootout and sell a bunch to the HP owners who are itching for 1080 3D DLP w/ just the right lens shift for max gain..

300watt lamp + max gain on the HP should cause some eye-squinting moments through the glasses which I would not complain about.

No pricing yet. When we get it, we will make an announcement.

With the BenQ W7000 and that 2.8 HP, will I need to bring sun block for my face and hands?

The horizontal 40% lens shift must be 20% of the screen width, either side of horizontal center added to gether to make a total of 40%. This would be consistent with their spec for vetical lens shift, being 62.5% of screen height, up or down from vertical screen center, adding together to make 125%.

That will be great for you guys to do a review on the Benq, I can't wait to hear about it.

Sounds about like my Viewsonic @ 1500 lumens floor mounted onto a 106" HP screen, only getting about 1.6 gain, but I thought I was going to start a fire. I didn't leave it on there for too long, but was just curious. Basically it was like turning ALL the lights in the room completely on.

May just have to buy this Benq in a few months after I get bored with the JVC (I get bored with every projector eventually),
plus I have to keep up with the Zombies (I mean Jones's of the world).

I'd like to know if the DI operates in 3D mode with this projector and if it has 2D to 3D conversion. So far the 2D to 3D conversion on both the Mits and JVC has been a big hit with the reviewers, who don't like converted 3D, so what does that tell you? None of these reviewers could care less about the 2D to 3D conversion on the other new 3D projectors.

This projector has me salivating, but why oh why can't it have a shorter throw ratio. Again, thinking more and more a basement renovation is in order to at last install a DLP Projector.

hey guys i was wondering if you could help me out. I originally felt like i had a real winner with the Panny 7000 but then came across one issue after another when I was trying to buy it. simply i got to the point where i felt it wasn't meant to be. Then i came across the Epson 5010! i felt like it was the answer to my dreams. Very bright, high contrast, lens shift, the list goes on and on. I never thought about input lag once in all my research for my next projector. I have been using a DLP Mits XD2000u for years now and there is no lag at all. But finding out about all these lag issues with LCDs I've had to start my research all over again. I guess really my hopes and dreams for 1080p Projector that has 3D with low lag times and that would work in my HT all falls into the new BenQ W7000. Ive been looking around but haven't found any definitive numbers about the W6000 input lag times. Do you guys think you can give me any input on it? Do we think the W7000 will be the same? Heres having my fingers crossed that this is the answer

If it hasn't been done before I can try to get a lag measurement of the W6K. I have a 3007WFP-HC in the same room that has no processing on it's inputs. I'm sure it's been measured for lag as well.

i haven't been able to find them for the w6000. Only people saying "i dont see any lag at all" but that's not a definitive number you know. everyone is different and what doesn't bother one person might not be the same case with another. Just to compare my projector with the numbers Ive been seeing lately for all these new projectors coming out i tried out my rock band calibration and it says 20ms. its crazy how much technology is put into these things today, it just slows everything down, i saw some input lag times over 100ms for some of them!

Don't know the lag numbers for the W7000, but if you can find it for the W6000, it will be the same.

Guys this is just to update you regarding specs and pricing on the W7000. We thought that we were going to get it this week, but we are still waiting for this information. As soon as we have this information we will let you guys know. I know that there are a few of you High Power owners that are anxious for this one because it is one of the few DLP's out there that can work with those screens. Being a HP owner (don't tell Mark) myself, I understand.

Once we see some people get these into their hands and determine no major issues or contrast problem or anything, I think most will be safer RBE-wise with this projector instead of the Mits, that is if this projector truly has a 6x color wheel.

Benq also has the amazing ability to take a cheap lens (not that this will have a cheap lens) and make it sharper than others.

Nope, I have a good friend with the w6000. He's owned it for two years now. It is still operating on the original lamp. My Benq w1000 has 1200 hours on the original lamp now. I use it almost nightly to watch TV. It has been solid as a rock in operation.

If price similar to Mitsubishi HC7800 sounds like it may end up being way to go more placement flexibility and brighter very helpful for CIH setup like mine and 3D but re: price must price both same re: 3D emitter and glasses plus length of warranty and lamp cost/how many hours lamps rated to last.

I don't think variations in lamp cost should play a role in your purchasing decision, unless the lamp is just super expensive.

I don.t know what costs of these new model projector lamps will be but compare cost Sony HW30 lamp to a JVC lamp. Also life expectancy of lamps on different models can vary substantially so I disagree with your statement...

If using the same lamp as the SP890, cost is around $300. Chances are it will be the same 300 watt lamp.

thanks for the info mike. it would be fun to a do a W7000 vs. JVC vs. Sony vs. Acer shootout.

heck, even that hard drive sized QUMI LED can do 3D with the Nvidia 3D vision.

If you were buying based on looks the JVC wins hands down, IMO. But looks don't always equate to similar overall long term performance -- just ask Demi Moore.

Crap!!

This projector is perfect for most HP owners but unfortunetly it will not work with my setup due to its long throw. To fit my 159" HP screen it needs to be back 18.9 feet which I don't have. The farthest I can go back is 17 feet!

if the W7000 is the same throw as the SP890 which I demo'd on my 142" HP, I believe I had it at 16 feet to fill the screen. There wasn't a ton of room to play with.

The lenses on the W6000 and SP890 were amazingly sharp considering their physical appears doesn't scream high quality. The focus was dead on from edge to edge, top to bottom.

Yeah, it looks like you are out of luck according to the 1.62-2.43 range

I really wish Infocus would come back into the game. My X10 has the same lens as the IN81,IN82 and IN83 and it is RAZOR sharp. I wonder how the W6000, W7000 and HC7800D would compare.

Very sad for me indeed. Well I will just stick with my original plan to get the 7800D, tilt, use keystone and be happy.

I would consider W7k from my existing W6k if they upgrade from DC2 to DC3. That should provide a slight boost in ANSI contrast.
