BenQ vs Epson 2030

Oh that changes things. If you can get your mounting to support the W1070, then it's certainly still in the running.

RBE is rare on this model (as ftoast says) due to an unusually fast color...

BenQ HC1200 DLP Projector at CES 2015

Errrr... I agree. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

That is quite a difference between lamps on the two models (over 50%) which is why I'd recommend starting off with the HT1075.

If lamp...

BenQ HC1200 DLP Projector at CES 2015

The MH740 and HC1200 use the same lamp. It's around $320 for an original:

BenQ vs Epson 2030

The Epson 8350 also had a dust filter. That didn't stop dust issues cropping up on a massive number of units; though it did usually take time.

The transmissive nature of 3LCD technology means...

New LG PF1500 LED Projector

No longer necessary: BenQ (finally) sorted this out at a reasonable price point. The successor to the W1070 (ie, HT1075/W1070+) was measured as operating at almost full color wheel speed (by a...

This kills me. Maximum is 900 lumens (down to 700-800 lumens on the Euro model); drops to ~700 lumens or less once calibrated.

Aaaargh.

Any projector owners regret going to one from an LCD TV?

After buying a projector, I have some regrets.

I regret ever buying a TV for that room.

Optoma hd37

Yup. And yet the HD37 lamp is higher powered and over 50% more expensive than that of the HD50. Puzzling.

Thanks for the link!

I'm not sure how to feel about that review, though. 1300 video-watching lumens? That's... rather dim for such an expensive lamp. The competition pretty much matches that -...

Benq HT1075 and HT1085ST

How are you aligning the image?

Are you using digital zoom rather than optical zoom? (And when testing without the receiver, are you completely removing it from the HDMI chain?)

For positioning...

First Projector - Need Input Please

I've seen the HC2000 touch $550 on sale (new). Refurbs can be a risk (make sure you get some warranty!), but on a tight budget, that sounds like an OK plan of action.

Let us know how it goes.

How long should a W1070 be on for?

...call now, and we'll throw in free delivery! ;-)


I'm assuming you didn't read 3 posts above yours:





So that's 6000 hours on the projector being discussed here, not 500.

How bad is the hd 141x when compared to the w1070+

Assuming it definitely is the 5030UB (and it's new), that's a significant level-up from the BenQ (locally, it's in a separate, higher, price bracket).

Local retail for the 5030UB is normally...

SONY VPL-HW40ES : New SONY SXRD 1080P home theater projector

Don't think that's dust. Most projectors produce some degree of color shift (especially on a full-white-field image); but that looks pretty extreme; especially (as you say) in...

Could still be dust: likely an obstruction on only one of the three panels (their light path is split) - you've ruled out red; could be blue. I'd get it exchanged: it'll definitely be covered under...
