I have had my W20000 for about 4 years now, it has just over 1000 hrs on the original bulb and is a integral part of my dedicated home theater. I only use it for movies in a controlled light environment.
That being said, for the last 6 months or so, all of a sudden the image will sku and I will get various levels of banding across the image. Usually turning it on and off remedies the situation. It's like a small strip down the middle is taken out and a different strip is added somewhere else. I have determined that it is the projector and am faced with a dilemma.
I was going to contact Benq and send it in for repair, but given that it is getting close to its bulb life along with the cost of the repair, I am wondering if I should upgrade and if so, what would be the best projector to suit my needs... Obviously I would something that is an improvement on the W20000 but am limited in my requirements. They are as follows
Single HDMI input
3D would be a nice add on ( I don't have it now but....)
My max screen size is 110 inch 16:9
I am thinking of going to a JVC either the DLA-X55R or the JVC Pro DLA-RS56 Projector any input at all would be appreciated
Interested in input or thoughts....
