I leave mine in standby when it's not in use. I unplugged it a couple of weeks ago when I was repainting the room. I didn't lose any settings. I am on FW 1.05.

Well done, start to enjoy the projector. I unplug mine every time it is used, as we do with our LED TV. I am fearful of major items being destroyed by power surges and brownouts! Yes I know there are devices to put in line but I don't trust them. Similarly, as suggested by another person here, I have purchased an UPS to use with the projector so that the cool down cycle is not interrupted due to a power outage. The items I buy are hard won and I believe in protecting them. At the end of the day it is your call as to if you unplug or not, I guess iot depends on how reliable your power supply is, how often you use the projector etc. The settings are not lost if you do unplug.

What are the best 3D glasses for this projector? Or which would you all recommend? I finally joined the club and my W1070 is on the way.

congrats! fantastic choice imho.

dimensional optics 3d link dlp 144hz are great but $40 a piece. comfortable and sync easily. folks I have had over are simply amazed at the pq and depth.

Hey, thanks! I'll post a detailed review once I've spent some time with it. Just hope I'm not susceptible to the dreaded RBE. We'll see.

I'm curious to see how many owners here have experienced any screen brightness issues with your 1070. With my recent DIY screen I'm beginning to think I may have a problem with the projector.

I painted a DIY screen and I think I have three contributing factors to my problem:

1) screen paint used
2) Projector uneveness
3) slightly curved screen wall.


Here is a link to another thread where I posted pics. These pictures look HORRIBLE with hotspotting, but its the camera, its NOT really that bad (in fact my wife thinks Im crazy), but the camera pics up what I see very well. At the top of the pics i placed three white sheets of paper as reference to take away the painted screen as the source of the hotspotting. the top right corner is MUCH darker than the center, even on the paper?

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1482507/suggestions-for-a-no-mix-painted-screen-benq-w1070/34#post_23722965

Anyone else experienced this? I think I may be contacting BenQ today, but wanted to see if anyone else had discovered anything with their projectors.

Thanks

I have had my pj for a few months now. Elite Sable White 100" 1.1 gain. Very even in general. I thought I may have noticed the right corner a little darker too, but not really that noticeable unless looking for it. Only for a couple of inches at most. I will test it using some calibration images and post back.

EDIT:

Just tested. Some very minor hotspotting in the center but very even. Corners look fine, so it must have been the content before.

Side Note: Since I had the WOW calib. disc in I also checked my previous settings. Had to up the contrast several ticks to get the whites correct. About 250 hours on the lamp. This is probably normal to have to recalibrate slightly.

Agree, These are the best glasses available. I have tried them all. Very comfortable and the work great. The case they come with is also nice.

I'm hoping someone can drop some knowledge on me - I'm struggling to fully comprehend the hz options on my receiver (Pioneer SC-65) that's hooked up to the W1070 (fw 1.06).

I have option for Pure, 1080i, 1080p, and 1080/24 upscaling. I usually just leave it on 1080p and dial back to 1080i if I'm ever watching 3D from my computer and I run into issues. First off, I'm not even sure if that's the best case scenario and if I'm properly using it to it's fullest potential. I recently tried watching a SBS 3D movie on HBO on demand and noticed a pretty bad stutter (slight shake in everything on screen) when watching 1080i. I dialed up to 1080p/24 and things looked great.

Basically, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on when/where I should be using the difference settings for the best effect (2D movies 1080p/24 / 2DCable 1080p??). If I'm way off, please let me know. I'd love to optimize my viewing habits, but can't seem to know whether I'm doing that already or need to switch things up dependng on my source.

Can someone possibly fill in the blanks for me??

2D Movies -- ??
3D Movies -- ??
Cable TV -- ??
2D Bluray -- ??
3D Bluray -- ??

I would be forever grateful -- I'm also about to be the proud owner of a 60ST60 Panasonic plasma and I would imagine the same setting would apply

It will be personal preference really, I use pure for everything. If you play games with anything but pure you are adding to the input lag. Pure just means it sends the projector/video display an unmodified video signal.

I've tried turning the volume down and muting, but both settings never save. I never have the issue on the HTPC, only on the 360. Does anyone have a solution to this? I updated the firmware in hopes that would help, but it still does the same thing.

I have set all inputs/pre-sets to mute during the calibration process and they still tick back on here and there, I would say it's a bug.

Alright, maybe I'll contact BenQ about this. It's not a big issue, it's just extremely annoying that every single time I switch inputs for the 360 that I have to mute the projector.

Well my projector is up and mounted to the ceiling. Right now just shooting onto a bed sheet and even then the pictures look great. Now to save up a bit to get an elunevision reference 4K electric screen. Anyone on here own this screen with this projector? Trying to decide between that one or just go with the Titan version which appears to be similar to the cinetension2 screen I was originally looking at.

Anyone had direct experience with the BenQ and the JVC RS1? Because I'm going to have to decide between one or the other. My 1070 is on the way but I also have a chance to get the RS1 for around $750 (hopefully less). I may not be able to A/B them before I have to decide which one to keep. I know the JVC should win hands down when it comes to black level, and maybe overall PQ, but then I'd be losing out on 3D ...

If you've spent time with both, and had to pick only one, which would it be?

That didn't even occur to me, I'll do that when I get home. That should work out just fine. Thanks!

That sounds like a Zen koan.

I know that a vast gulf of time and technology separates those two choices, but as I see it they are my two best options at the moment, so I must choose between them, watermelons and hamburgers though they may be.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to let my eyes decide, but on paper at least, I think I'm leaning toward keeping the 1070, assuming Best Buy ever gets around to actually delivering it to me.

Couldn't agree with Fredxr2d2 more. This is a great pj in many ways. Owned for a couple of months and have over 200 hours on it now. Fantastic in controlled lighting.

Guys what can i use to clean the lens? There is a smudge mark on top of the lens but i cant get it off with the micro fiber. It shows up as a brownish/blackish shadow on the screen.


edit: when i blow my breath on the area where the mark is, it turns brown for a second from my breath, is the a burn mark?

I'd love to get your feedback on your Jamestown screen when you get it - I've been debating stepping up to their 130" over the 92" Draper Onyx I inherited. I'm pretty unfamiliar with the advantages / disadvantages of Jamestown in relation to the screen I currently have.

Is the lens shift for the 1070 positive in direction only?

I'm asking because the white portion of my 130 inch painted screen is 3.5 inches from the ceiling and that does not leave me much room for a ceiling mount without using lens shift. Even if I used a flush mount I am assuming that my projected image will start several inches below the top of the screen. I think will need negative lens shift to bring the image back up to the top of the screen and I have read conflicting statements about the 1070 only shifting in a positive direction.

Does anybody know?

That is not enough room to mount this projector unless you use Keystone, otherwise you would have to cut a hole in your ceiling and raise the projector into it as a recessed mount configuration. Yes, the offset of the w1070 is always ABOVE the top of the screen (in your case about 4"), and never below / negative.

You also have to account for the lens center to base distance which adds another 2", then the mounting plate thickness (not so much on a true flush mount), but even if you find the flushest configuration possible, you are probably looking at 6" minimum, and most will find 9"+ of space above the screen more reasonable.

I would look into the Benq w7000 for a bit more money if it were me. You need a projector with a center based offset, or a negative offset from the top.

Too bad there isn't a way to flip the offset to where it would only do negative.

would something like this work but the pj would be up a few inches? The recessed tile goes up about 4" from the other tiles. this is what coderguy was talking about re: recessed.



EDIT: I just ran the numbers through the benq throw calculator and 130" screen at 4" top screen position the projector would have to be 1" from the ceiling. Not really sure if it will work or not (most likely not).

I made a mounting bracket out of wood... I took a piece of Shiplap pine (leftover from our wood ceiling) and cut it to clear the ventilation area and go over the mounting holes. I then attached the spacer to the projector and then got a piece of 1/2x2 (trim piece for framing a window) and attached that to the spacer I just made running it from left to right and parallel to the front surface of the projector. I then drilled 2 holes in the piece of wood for mounting it to the ceiling. By doing it this way I got it within 1" of the ceiling. If you wanted to get it closer you could just make the first piece overhang the projector (on the sides) to allow you to mount the projector about 1/2" closer to the ceiling. I hope this makes sense.

My 1070 arrived early from BB today. My initial impressions are somewhat mixed but positive overall. Big, very very very bright image, the color accuracy seems excellent to the naked eye, and the picture is sharp as a tack. The main drawback is definitely black level. It looks great when dark and bright images appear in the same shot, but when it is mostly black the image just kind of flattens out. It loses the 3D effect that 2D can sometimes create. As for actual 3D, this is my first 3D projector and I haven't gotten the glasses I bought from BB to work with it yet. Hopefully they didn't sell me the wrong kind. I intend to buy the ones recommended here on Amazon, but the projector arrived earlier than I expected and I just wanted to get something from BB today to check it out ...

Some questions:

1. Can anyone offer me a real simple tutorial on getting 3D going with the 1070? The glasses I got were Xpand Youniversal and according to the instructions they are supposed to work with all DPL projectors. When I push the button on the glasses to get them to sync with the projector a little red light flashes indicating it is searching for a source, but it just blinks for a minute or so and then goes out ....

2. The BenQ recognizes my blue ray player just fine, it will NOT recognize my Netgear media player with attached usb hard drives. I did not have this issue with the two projectors I owned before this. Any advice on getting the two to sync?

3. Any tips on improving black level? I tried different iris settings, the "brightness" setting, of course, but none of that seemed to make much difference ...

No. That is the same company but my glasses do not look like that.
