After spending about 10 hours (2 sessions of 5 hrs ea., w/ a 2 hr. break, and one glitch) yesterday with my new BenQ W7000, I have only discovered a few negative things about it (but so far, none are deal breakers as having near ghost free 3D is my main concern.)
1.) I read further back in this thread that someone had experienced tearing on a SBS 3D image. I was testing an O/U MKV file that has very fast action, and quick cutting, and noticed some tearing on the bottom 3rd of the picture. This did not appear throughout the entire movie, but it was noticeable during several scenes. I haven't noticed any tearing on frame packed, BD disc material so far.
2.) One freeze up episode. I was trying to change 3D modes using the "3D" button on the remote (while the 3D movie was playing.) It was the O/U MKV file that I mentioned previously. This seemed to be taking too long, so I decided to hit stop on my Oppo 93, and try another file. When I did, the screen went black (or, to be technically accurate, dark gray.) And this static image appeared on the far, right hand side of the screen:
At first I thought that the Oppo had locked up, as it had happened before. But when I tried to enter the menu on the W7000, there was no response. No mater what buttons I pressed on the W7000 remote, nothing appeared on the screen. I even disconnected the HDMI cable from the Oppo, but the image remained as you see. Finally, I decided to power off the projector. I waited about 10 minutes, then powered it back on. Everything proceeded as normal from there.
3.) When a blu-ray disc starts to play in my Oppo 93 (after the normal slow loading time for certain discs that have these issues) there is quite a long delay before the picture is visible on the screen (and I have "auto input search" switched 'off'). The sound will play in the background (for instance, the WB logo screen), while the screen will have a message that it is searching for the signal (this is via the latest mfg. HDMI 1.3 cable). At first i thought that it may be because the Oppo 93 has 2 HDMI outputs. For 3D, one goes to my receiver (which in my case doesn't pass 3D) for the audio, and the other (for the video) goes to directly to HDMI 1 on the projector. But, then again, my Panny 7000 doesn't experience this when hooked up exactly the same way. Perhaps the Panny has a better HDMI handshake than the BenQ?
These things aside, so far I have been very pleased with the BenQ W7000's overall performance (especially the 3D), and if no further problems arise, I think this one is a keeper.
