Just got my w1070 and Elite Sable 120" mounted yesterday in time for the Cowboys game.

Looks fantastic. I need to reposition my Ceiling mount - Operator error in measuring 3 times and still mounting it wrong - my speaker mounts will be in Wednesday so I can reconnect my sound system, but overall experience in the first 6 hours is WOW. very impressed for such a budget setup.

I am noticing the couch area below the PJ is warmer so I will have to work something out for that, but I cannot wait to get everything fully setup and enjoy.

Thanks to everyone on this thread, it has saved me a lot if trouble and allowed me to get everything close to perfect the first time.

Will post some pics once the set up is complete.

Hey guys... Been really happy with this projector so far, but today when I started it up the fan noise had dropped in pitch to more of a tumbler and now there's also a whine happening about 30 seconds after startup. Has this happened to anyone? RMA worthy?

Strange... Sounds like your fans are running slower than you're used to.

The soft whine after warm-up is probably the color wheel adjusting speed to your input source (50hz/60hz); but you're likely noticing it more than before due to the quieter fans. Have you changed lamp power modes by any chance? (Normal or SmartEco down to Eco perhaps? Fans are much quieter in Eco). Are you using 3D of late - or a new input (such as the second HDMI in) that you weren't using before? (Each input has it's own settings so it's possible a new input might be using another preset that's on 'Eco' lamp power, lowering the pitch of your fans.)

So check your Lamp Power setting (and double-check that High-Altitude mode is off while you're at it, just to be certain).

If none of the above, then definitely contact support and query it.

Ok the whine was definitely the color wheel. It settled down and went away.

I played with the fan speed and I think something is rattling or something.

I still feel like it's louder but it may just be my imagination. Only 31 hours on it. I will keep listening.

loving my completed home theater. :)

Guys,
Is there a "break-in" period for this projector?
I just got mine and wanted to know if I should be expecting a visible difference in PQ or otherwise after a few hours on it.

The bulb will dim a lot over the first hundred+ hours. It is kind of nuclear bright to start with before settling in a bit.
Everything else should remain consistent.

It's hard to love Martin Logans and 2.35:1 CIH at the same time...
