So I got my new W1070 today. Got home from work and took care of a bunch of stuff before even opening the box at 8:00. Unpacked everything and all looked good. Played with the mount a little to make sure I could get a solid connection and take some measurements. Hooked the PJ up to the bluray player and threw in Avatar for a first look. Looked phenomonal out of the box, no adjustments yet. Wife was even impressed and noticed darker blacks in the opening space scene. Whew! I was nervously waiting for something to go wrong. Next I started to familiarize myself with the menus and input some settings from this thread. Almost finished and power goes out. Thunderstorm. Unplugged a/v system and PJ, now waiting for power to return to see if any damage.

I would get a UPS for future use... So you can properly turn off the projector when you have a power failure.

Is a UPS critical for projector use, did many of you here experience failures caused by power cut, because that happens in my home sometime.
I'm waiting for my w1070 coming this week

Most unfortunate timing, sorry to hear! Assuming you didn't get surged (which would affect more equipment than just your projector), you're probably OK: the occasional abrupt-power-off usually won't take out the whole projector (it's actually happened to me a couple of times; and each time I held my breath when powering back on. Never any issues though, fortunately).

However, power surges are very common when the power returns, so keep your equipment unplugged until then.

If your power utility is unreliable (or if severe storms are common where you stay), then it's definitely worth UPS consideration.

how do you use a surge suppressor or ups if a projector is ceiling mounted? Do they make an outlet like that?

ALL IS WELL!!! ALL IS WELL!!!

Power was off from 10:30 until 3:00 am. Plugged A/V equipment back in and ran through everything. Thought receiver was down at first since no signal received by TV. Had this happen to the previous Denon receiver, a fried HDMI out. Then I realized I unplugged the cable to the TV to use on the BenQ. All was working. Then I plugged the W1070 backed in and watched nervously. Red light turned orange. I plugged the bluray back in and started the PJ. No problems, even had the settings I changed last night. Shut it all down and waited until the PJ was happily quiet before unplugging. Tonight I will work on seeing how much lens shift is available from my mounting distance so I can finish cutting pipe for the mount extension. Like to have it mounted by Friday movie night with the kids.

Had a splitter running to the W1070 and the 6 year-old Optoma HD65 to compare images. When the old PJ first came on I was looking at something else and forgot it was on. I looked up and the image suddenly looked bad (slightly doubled) and I thought I somehow was in 3D mode. I drove myself crazy for 5 minutes trying to look at settings, menus and remote buttons to get the great image back. Panicked, thought I would be sending it back (my secret fear the last few days). Then I shifted it on the table slightly and the doubling became more pronounced. Yes, dummy here finally realized it was the other PJ imagage. I covered the Optoma lens and happiness filled the room again. I switched back and for in various scenes (light, dark, skin tones) and the difference was incredible. It's funny how you don't notice slight changes over time. Like the glacier in the back yard getting closer.

BTW, how do I check my firmware #?

Glad you're sorted! I've been in that same boat; it's terrifying
Firmware Version is on last page of the menu - it's in the 'Information' tab. Latest is 1.08.

I know people are always curious about fan volume when purchasing projectors. I don't know what the fan volume actually measures for the W1070 but I will say not once has it been a distracting in the least bit. I run the projector in eco mode and the projector is mounted directly above my head, about 4-5 feet up. It really just blends into whatever other noise is going on and never stands out.

You don't want abrupt turning off of the projector as the bulb doesn't get cooled by the fan when it is off. I run a UPS on mine, and I know a lot of people do for that reason.

According to the Projector Central Calculator...

16x9 distance would be 7' 10" - 10' 3"
2.35 distance would be 10' 7" -13' 10"

So it is close but not quite.... If you mount the projector at 10' 7" your 16x9 image would extend past the top and bottom by 1/2" each. Will that work for you?

I think general consensus is that CIH isn't possible with the W1070. You'd have to look at more expensive models, or at least ones with greater zoom ranges for it to work.

Being lazy. Searched amazon for "surge protector side outlet" and a bunch come up. Some even swivel! Guess I haven't been keeping up on the latest power strip innovations.

I punched in only for the screen size you wanted. I think it will work but is going to be very close as far as picture size... What I don't know is when you zoom if it is going to raise or lower the image too. If it raises or lowers the image it will not work. I went to the Panasonic AE8000 to do mine as it has power zoom, focus, and memory selections.

The w1070 is inexpensive enough that you might be able to run 2 of them... One for 16x9, and another for 2.35, with a HDMI cable going to each of them from a AVR that has 2 outputs or using a "A/B" switcher.

It isn't the lamp shutoff, it's the lack of airflow that occurs when the fan isn't running to properly cool the entire optical engine down. It can shorten the lamp life, but there are other components inside that could be damaged as well because the lamp is still at full temperature, and the fans aren't running to move the air through the system.

A proper cool down cycle is always recommended on projectors. Some models are designed to allow this to happen far more quickly than others.

What is your setup that makes you think that 2.35 is appropriate? Don't buy into the marketing hype. You are purchasing a 1.78 projector, so you lose a lot going to 2.35.

I want a 2.35 screen as it gives more of a cinema feel.

I guess I'll just go with the more expensive panny 8000

Projector delivered a few hours ago. Hooked it up to my PS3 and focused onto my old 106" pull down screen.
Right off that bat I'm impressed. Played a quick game of Super Stardust HD no lag that I can feel.
Put a copy of Hobbit 3d in to see how it reacted and it switched to a red screen and 1080 24 frame pack automagic.
3d glasses have not yet shipped so can't really play here yet. I hope that red gets blocked.
It gets hot. But then so did my old machine.
The machine is much quiter than I was expecting. Put in in high altitude mode and smart eco. I think It's actually less noise than my old benq 8720 that gave up the ghost 2 years ago. My old machine had powered focus and lens shift. I might need some help to get it focused perfectly. Either that or a pair of binoculars to see the if the little squares are focused.

For those talking about hooking up a UPS, I bought the outlet/inlet from monoprice. When I built my house, I made sure that the builder hooked up my ceiling outlet using this and provided me the inlet next to where I planned to put the UPS. Worked out great. However, you all can still use this if you can isolate the romex that is hooked up to that outlet and somehow connect it to the inlet and then use the supplied cable to take it to an outlet.
