I need some help.

I am using the W1070 in economy or Smart Eco mode and mostly in Brilliant Color off.

I noticed that if I turn brilliant color off, the color temp option in main image screen is disabled and I can't change it. Is this normal? Doesn't look like normal as I have used several PJs in the past and all with BC off, but had no issues in choosing color temp.

Anyone?

This is normal - have noticed the same thing.

Since switching on Brilliant Color does change color temperature (by adding secondary colors available during color-wheel spoke time - which yields some extra brightness without too large-a-hit on accuracy); it's possible that in this case, this setting is actually specifically for Brilliant Color; i.e. it dictates how Brilliant Color should operate in terms of adding secondaries.

It doesn't matter all that much, though: you can still manually adjust color temperature using the Color Management System menus; which still operate exactly the same when BC is off. So you can achieve the same effect; it's just a bit more manual to do so.

Just built a making system for my 16:9 screen with this projector, what a huge difference for 2.35 movies!

Here's a pic with the flash on, bottom is masked, top is not, you can see the "black bars" on the top, on the bottom, nothing.


Flash again, no masks


Flash with masks


No flash, masks

Nice, CheYC! How are you attaching the masks? I've built a couple of panels, but I haven't covered them with velvet yet, and I'm still mulling over some options on how to attach them.

You're right, if 14fL is what im getting from my projected image at 4.7 metres then it's ample. In fact, too much. I've only watched a movie out of the box so need to change the settings, change to smart eco etc

The hairs stand up on the back of my neck every time I think about my 3 metre wide screen on the wall, I think I've started down a road of obsession.
Atta boy! Enjoy watching!

Hey guys. I was playing PS4 on my w1070 last night and the image on the screen flashed red for a split second, then it was gone. Only time it's happened......I waited around for 30 min and it didn't happen again. Projector and bulb are only a month old. Should I be worried about this? Is there a hardware failure in my future? Impending doom for my color wheel? Or was this a random odd occurance, maybe a quick HDMI handshake issue or some other anomaly? Please advise.......it's appreciated!

Hi everybody, I was wondering if somebody can help me. Lately when I try to see 3d to my pj with power DVD 14 the 3d image is getting disturbing in my eyes. My eyes getting tired and the image is not clear 3d like before. I try to invert the 3d but not a chance. When I am streaming 3d from YouTube or vudu the 3d is clear. I tried also with win DVD and is the same. 3d has depth but is disturbing in the eys in the fast scenes. I play 3d isos from my laptop with nvidia sli 750. I tried to reinstall the drivers but nothing. Also all my devices connected with my yamaha amplifier. I have also a ps4 and with the new firmware supposed to play 3d blueray movies but I can watch only 3d in my 3d tv not on benq. The image change to frame packing but not see 3d. The image is still 2d. The 3d in ISO' videos with frame packing is getting annoying. I see now only side by side. Anybody can to explain me why is happening this suddenly?

I used a combination of magnets and velcro pads. Glued magnets to the screen and masks and stuck the velcro pads on top of the magnets, stays on there nice.

How do you reach the top masking when you want to change it? I have been looking into some kind of adjustable masking system for some time but have not found an easy way to make it.

The magnets help out with that, if I hold it up they kind of "grab" at the masks, then the velcro holds them in place. Getting them off is a different story, I have to climb on my little stand in front of the screen to pull them off, which I wish was a bit easier.. but they stay on longer then they aren't at this point, since most of what I watch is 2.35.

Thanks, The problem I have is that it is very difficult to get up to reach the top masking. I will have to work on a different solution.

Honest question for those of you with this projector. Looking at the price and the competition this projector almost seems too good to be true. I can't really seem to find much in the under $1500 (my price limit) that seems to really compete with the reasonably priced 1070. I would love to know if there are some major drawbacks or something that I'm simply missing with this projector. I'm pretty close to pulling the trigger on it, and just want to do as much research as I can.

In this price bracket, it's almost unrivaled.

It isn't drawback-free, of course: the fans can be a bit noisy if not in Eco mode.
The black levels could be a bit better (once again, they're not bad in Eco mode).
Like most budget projectors, it's picky about placement (needs to be roughly in line with either the top or bottom of the screen; horizontally centered).

Other than that, it's pretty awesome and probably just-about best-in-class at its price-point. Pull the trigger if the above isn't an issue for you.

Compared to "other projectors" this project is limited in it's placement functionality/lens shift, is louder with it's fan, and has worse black levels. Also, the lens isn't super high quality so you get some chromatic aberrations that basically means you can't totally focus the image RAZOR sharp and it looks up close like the convergence is slightly wrong. All of these are minor things for the price. It is an exceptional value putting up an exceptionally good image for little money.

Is there anything specific you can point to? The language around black levels is very vague but I've struggled to find a reviewer praising a projectors black levels unless its a $5000 JVC.

I have never seen one but the sony HW 40es (not sure exact model number) has better blacks, better lens/lens shift, and is much quieter. It also costs between 2k-2.5k. And, in some cases (3d?) might have a worse picture than the w1070. For dark sci if movie 2d viewing it should kill the w1070 though. In the $1500 range I just don't know enough about the competitors to say. I went with w1070 for $699 during Fourth of July sale and it's a budget projector with the above mentioned flaws but an EXTREMELY good value.

I'm close to 500 hours on the projector. Netflix is going to turn me into a slug if I keep this up.
I've noticed the bulb has 'smoothed' out with the smart eco auto bright and dim. I never noticed it that much while watching movies. But it was very apparent on the PC. Usually while scrolling web sites with white pages and dark pictures.
This weekend the kids let in several flying insects by leaving the back door open. I think I've got most of em but now I'm worried that somthing might have crawled up into the vents as many made a beeline for the light of the Benq 1070. Does this thing have a sealed light path? And what does that mean exactly?

From everything I've read about the BenQ it looks like it is going to require a lot more money to do significantly better. My understanding is that running it in Eco mode really helps improve the blacks. But I do generally agree with you that it is hard to find much talk about how the black levels are other then that they could be darker. I guess my mind might still change (it's been known to happen) but I think I'll be joining the BenQ owners club. My theater is set to be ready sometime around November, so I'm not in a huge hurry, but I simply don't see much on the horizon that is going to do better.

It's still on BestBuy.com but through marketplace sellers. Your gift cards would still work.

I tried but didn't get the option. No worries, I just traded them out for $800 worth of amazon gift cards. Lol!

Hello all, I currently have an Epson 8100 projector and I'm considering purchasing this BenQ 1070 projector. The problem I have is that I have a 1.1gain 110" screen and my epson projector is mounted about 15-16' away from the screen. With the zoom options and screen shifts on the Epson 8100 the picture was amazing looking. With the Benq 1070 would I have to relocate the projector closer to the screen or would the projector be fine projecting from 15-16' away? Just not sure that the Benq 1070 has the same adjustments as my old epson. Thanks

If you use the above calculator you will see that the absolute furthest you can be from the screen with absolutely no zoom used and still fit a 110" screen is 12' from the screen. The smallest screen you can achieve with it at 15' (so again no zoom) is a 138" image.

In other words, yes you will have to either get a bigger screen or move the mount closer if you get the W1070.

Hello, I am getting ready to pull the trigger on this. I just want to make sure I am checking everything correctly. I will be sitting 13' back from screen. I will be getting 110" screen in a light controlled room. I will ceiling mount around 10.5' back. Does this sound right?

Thanks

So I pulled the trigger last week and ordered this PJ from Benq , the refurb price discount was too good to pass up. I'm loving the big screen experience in my livingroom , even just projection on a less than ideal wall. A couple of things that I've either missed in the thread , or are different from what I've read about this PJ . First , they sent it with a backlight remote . while I was expecting the non backlight one. I'm not sure if this is an upgrade or they sent a remote for a different model , but so far its working with the PJ . The other thing that I've noticed is that the zoom range my unit has doesn't match what the Benq website , or the Projector Central calculator claim. Measuring the horizontal from a throw distance of 10' , my unit throws 87" to 104". Benq's calc claims 81" to 105" from 10' , and PC claims 80" to 105" . I'm not really worried about the reduced zoom range it looks like mine has , I was just curious if variations in zoom range were normal , and if anyone else has been sent this remote , or if I just lucked out. Now I'm going to get back to watching this amazing projector.

What is the latest firmware on the projector?
My movie player only outputs ycbcr and with that the 3D SBS isn't recognised at 1080p.
It only works when using a player that does RGB.

I guess this is something which can be fixed by a firmware, so I hope it is available already?

One more question. I have searched and couldn't find my answer. When I do the caluclator for the 110" screen I am getting 25fL minimum. I take it this is normal mode? I was doing some reading here....

and it said eco mode drops the brightness 30% which would take me down to about 17.5 fL. Is this a correct estimate on my part? I'm just a little worried it will be too bright. I may be able to do an accent wall but I can't black out the walls totally.
