For you W1070 users out there - - outside of the throw ratio, I can't see many differences between the W1070 & W1080ST - - especially based on BenQ's website when you do a "compare" projectors.
I've read through both threads and is it safe to say that I can expect the same performance, PQ wise, out of the W1080ST as the W1070?
Mine will be a ceiling mount on a farther end of the setup (minimal "Zoom" - from what I've read, that's the best setup) and will be run through a Pioneer SC65 AVR with an OPPO BDP 103 player. 16 X 9, 100" FAVI screen - 1.3 gain.
Any issues with connecting everything via HDMI 2 out of my receiver for all video sources? (Directv, Bluray and Media Player).
I also know that taking someone else settings doesn't mean you'll get the same picture, but any caveats on what not to do or how to get the best PQ - - i.e., what's worked for you? Everything gets upscaled to 1080P from my AVR. Man cave in basement with minimal light but off white walls with dark paneling three feet high from the light carpeted area. No windows.
