New W1400 owner here (in Sweden).
Overall a great projector, with awesome performance/price!
I'm having a few issues with it, and firmware is only v1.00. Anyone else who owns one with a newer firmware? Are any of the issues below fixed or still present? (BenQ support says there is a v1.01 firmware but they are not sure exactly what it fixes...)
My issues (also sent to BenQ support)
1. When changing input "mode" (3D, resolution, update frequency, etc) it takes 3-5s before image is shown again. And the image will flicker like a strobe light for 1-2s before it's normal again. I did not have this problem with my old PE7700.
2. When playing 3D content (movies etc) I always have to manually switch the projector to 3D mode, and select the correct stereoscopic method (OU, SBS, Frame Packing, etc).
3. The lens is leaking light on one of the sides (left side when mounted upside down). The light spot is very bright, and not the same light that can be seen through the front fan/vent.
The only input is through a brand new 10m Supra HDMI cable (good for HDMI High Speed 30m according to them), and input signal is most often 1080p60 or 1080p24 (including 3D). My receiver is a Onkyo TX-NR616 and I usually play movies using my HTPC with XBMC.
The only settings I've modified are projector position (ceiling), preset mode (cinema), lamp power (eco), frame interpolation (off/low), and auto off (30min). No image fine tuning so far.
BenQ has offered me a new projector, but can't guarantee that the new one works better or even has updated firmware...
