First impression with w1070+ is simply incredible.
This is my 1st PJ and not in a million years did I imagine this could look so damn good.
I mean this thing even looks awesome on the wall with such a crappy color for projections.
The noise is a bit loud if you run it in normal mode but considering the picture looks even better for movies in economic mode, the noise is pretty pleasant. So it's a win-win outcome.
You could even like the sound of it subconsciously, because consciously you know that something magical is happening from the PJ
Kinda like comparing it to good old film projections.
Since I haven't seen w1070 in action I can't say how it fares with the colors and RBE when running at 24hz but this is probably the only thing why I chose w1070+ instead of w1070.
This thing looks completely the same RBE and color wise when running at 60hz or 24hz. That alone is a huge deal for me since I will be watching strictly movies.
Watching it at 24hz... Man I can tell you that I got goosebumps and was smiling at the picture the whole time. How perfectly smooth the motion is. It's really like in theaters. With this in mind, I really can't understand folks that use any sort of Frame interpolation or such. I could probably understand it if you watch it on PC Monitor or TV that doesn't support 24hz and the motion could look a bit juddery even with madVR etc. but with this thing running at 24hz? Pure magic and real cinema.
Watching movies for the 1st time like they should be seen is something I've never experienced before. At home of course.
Now enough with glorifying this beast.
Here are some minor cons:
. This is something that won't affect picture quality since it doesn't go onto the screen. But it could be a minor distraction for folks with bright side walls.
I'm saying this is only minor because I guess you could cover it if it really bugs you. I mean not literally cover it so you block the air but just put something at safe distance to block it.
This is an individual thing so it's a problem for some and for some it isn't. I happened to see few RBE's here and there but to my surprise(and this was my major dilemma before deciding to bite the bullet and go for DLP over LCD) it's definitely something that won't bother me at all.
I can only say this: I was testing movies at 24hz and almost couldn't notice any RBE in non-action scenes. Of course when there's some dark and fast action scene with contrast I did notice it but wasn't bothered by it.
Also please note that I was actually looking for them. Going up and down, left and right with my eyes across the screen like a madman lol. So there's that heh.
One thing that actually could be alarming is how much the RBE enhanced when I played around the walls. I noticed it's much more enhanced when I projected it on white ceiling. On dark cherry wall I almost saw none even on scenes that are prone to them.
So I will have to be very careful before I buy the screen.
Hopefully if I go for mate white motorized, it won't be like the white ceiling? Because I could notice them even in some non action scenes when there's subtitle on. But again I was looking for them, so that might be a key factor too.
Also I didn't play around with settings, I wasn't adjusting brightness, contrast or anything. It was all on default, I guess all at 50. So maybe playing with those settings could reduce tremendously RBE on white wall/screen?
All in all, I mean I don't want to jinx it but I'm very delighted so far.
