I have an option to buy a W1070 or a W7000 refurb for the same price, placement is not an issue and its a fairly light controlled room. I would like to be able to manually change the zoom from 16:9 to 2.35 so I'm leaning towards the 7000. Is there anyone out there that has a 7000 that could tell me how long it takes to change the zoom from 16:9 to 2.35 manually every time?

Anyone have any opinions that would change my mind? i know the 144hz 3D is a nice feature but i'm not sure how much of a difference that will make, am I better getting the W1500 for $500 more? anyone know how hard it is to manually zoom 16:9 to 2.35 on the w1500?


Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.



Thanks

Something tells me your an Aussie. If you are going for a 2.35:1 screen I would look at the Sharp XV-Z30000 as it has lens memory.

How big is your screen and how important is 3d to you?

Well I was going for a 130" 2.35. I think 3d would be awesome for the kids (I have 4 of them tongue.gif) plus I cant find any z3ks around at a decent price

That is big, I would recommend you take your time picking a screen that will work. My thought would be a dalite HP 2.4 screen, though I don't know if you can get them that size or if it would work with your setup. But at that size the Sharp in 3d would be dimmer then I would like. How far away are you seated?

Well I could go 120" but I think at 130 I have a 105" 16:9 screen. Or maybe im mistaken and its 120 with the 105"screen using a w7000 or w1500 in the projector calculator I stay at 20fl of light im pretty sure
