many manufacturers such as Epson & Panasonic...etc already introduced or will soon introducing the successor of their previous year projector, wondering any chances BenQ will do the same for W7000?

For $800 this thing could be killer! If it is even close to the the Benq W7000 in picture quality and 3D we may have a great projector. Anyone want to compare the differences between this and the W7000?
When's the release?

The German online shop promises to deliver in approx. 3 weeks.

I guess, that the entry level projector W1070 is mainly a concurrence for the Optoma HD33, not for the Benq W7000.

The W1070 is a short throw projector!

Am I reading this correct, short throw full 1080p that does 3d?

Marketing material sounds good, wonder what real world performance will be like.

Can anyone find bulb replacement costs?
Also can't find speed or segment # for color wheel.

Here's a quick preview from a chinese site:
http://chinese.vr-zone.com/38449/benq-w1070-fullhd-projector-released-10202012/



First time seeing a cheaper model that is isf certified. I'm happy that it has vertical lens shift. Able to project 100" from a distance of 2.5 meter. Uses DarkChip3. The description says it has 6 segments color wheel. But what's the speed?

@ kraine
I'm eager to read your review.

How reliable is Benq projector? From my reading, Viewsonic Pro8200 and the Mitsubishi HC4000 seem to be trouble free and last a long time.

Color Wheel speed?
2D to 3D conversion?
Both horizontal and Vertical lens shift?
Can you compare it to the W7000?

I would like to know if the cooling feature will really bring bulbs to the claimed 6000 hour mark. it would be great if it even hit half that and was still not completely dim.

No 2D 3D conversion

How much lens shift does it have? Can it be mounted on a shelf at screen height in the back of a room?

Does the lens shift allow for the projector to be placed anywhere within the vertical viewable screen area? What is the lag?

The deal breaker for me on this unit is the 3x color wheel. For me anyhow, 3x color wheels are rainbow city.

From where do you guys get the 3x wheel speed ?

@ kraine
I have read your review in cinetson. Have you tested it with movie? Do you see any rainbow? Very obvious? I'm just worried about the color wheel speed.

It's a very small vertical lens-shift and it's working only in a positive way + 30 cm to the top from the center of the optical engine.

The review isn't online for the moment skylinestar, at the best Tuesday or Wenesday next week. I'm nor rainbow sensitive (and this is why I love so much the DLP).

Tigerfan33 I have no idea for the US, but here in Europe, the W1070 is coming out by the end of November. Best price is in Germany 749 euros ! This is a deal breaker for a full hd DLP projector with 3D.

Shelf mounted close to center of screen?

How does this projector project? Straight on or with an offset? If it fires straight on with just 30cm of lens shift, ceiling mounting & tabletop placement will be impossible. The only possible way is to put it on a shelf or book case behind the seating position. With it behind the seating position and at a typical distance (13-15 feet from screen), the projected image is gonna be HUGE.

It's more like the first one but only with the vertical movment from the center of the lens to the top and not the bottom.

I am still confused on this as well. If we have a 100" screen for example, what is the vertical mounting range of the projector within the viewable area of the image that must be used in conjunction with the lens shift if doing a shelf/table mount?
