Upgraded from optoma HD33 to HD25-LV

The dramatic increase in brightness would definitely contribute to eye strain. Assuming Eco/Low-Lamp mode doesn't help, an ND filter attached to the front of the lens may assist in taming brightness....

Best projector for $1600 or less

2000+ lumens in a light controlled/black-out-shaded room on a moderate-sized (120" or so) positive-gain screen should really be sufficient...

For us on a no-gain 120" screen, full brightness is...

Best projector for $1600 or less

If the Epson 3500 (and slightly brighter BenQ HC1200) were just bright enough, the significant loss of lumens going to the Panny is going to be an issue.

Your next projector purchase should be...

Wanting a quiet fan and projecting on a colored wall: W1070 vs HD26 vs H5380BD

You should be fine.

I run with HA Mode off (in a combination of SmartEco and Eco) at 1650m; no problems over the last few years.

As Dreamer says, it's manageable in SmartEco (I use this during...

QUIET projector under 2k?

First rule for interpreting manufacturer spec sheets: don't believe them. 29dB is actually below average in this price class; yet (as those reviews indicate), the projector is actually a lot louder. ...

Benq W1070 exploded after only 6 months of use

If it doesn't, still see if you can arrange your receipt and contact BenQ. The last two similar early bulb failures reported here (a while back) were both covered under warranty without much fuss:...

BenQ HT1085ST Help?

Nope; light spill is the bit of light that lands on the ceiling directly above the projector when it's ceiling mounted - what you're describing is something else, common among recent DLPs, completely...

Best PJ With Remotee Control Zoom & Focus?

The Panasonic AE8000 is about the only FHD projector in this bracket that offers motorized zoom and focus. It's not short-throw - and it's a bit over-budget. Shop around since it goes on special...

Minix X8-H Plus Android box for your projector

I use a Mygica ATV582 (which runs Android and is similar in many ways to the Minix). It's cheaper than the X8-H; but likewise Minix has cheaper products than the one you mention as well. (I purchased...

I'd imagine that this could be calibrated out by pushing up Red gain in the CMS? (And maybe swapping over to 'Warm' color temperature might help?)

Benq w1070 HDMI 1 not working - troubleshooting help

I think you need to do this before you can be sure of anything. If you moved from HDMI 2 back to 1 after you had a signal on 2, did it still not work? DVD players have more...

Absolutely yes. It sounds like you probably got surged: it took out the receiver, and the HDMI device attached to the output of said receiver.

Indeed. Perhaps enquire with your insurance (since surge/lightning damage is easy to prove and often covered)... Might lessen the replacement cost blow!

Replace Optoma HD25-LV with BenQ HT1075?

I'm inclined to agree with your thinking.

The HD25-LV and HT1075 both use similar-powered lamps; with the HD25-LV tuned for more raw brightness at the expense of color accuracy (which is where the...

BenQ HC1200 DLP Projector at CES 2015

If it's like the W1070, SmartEco will be as loud as Normal since bright scenes in that mode engage full lamp power...(the fans actually fluctuate accordingly).
