BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$

Your initial understanding is correct: Ceiling mounting needs to be a few inches above the top of the screen.
Table mounting (which would have the projector not inverted) would require a few inches...

BenQ W1070+ new version of the W1070 with WHDMI and MHL

For UK buyers, the pricing of this unit seems to finally be coming down nicely as official shipping (post-CEDIA) starts.


ProjectorPoint.co.uk (been around for ages) is currently listing it...

Letter-boxing is purely digital: it takes the image as-is, and zooms it to fill a 16:9 screen; eradicating the black bars at top and bottom and cropping the sides. It's similar in principle to...

First-off: I find your current technique for CIH to be very cool.

And it's a pity that a feature that's so fundamentally simple isn't implemented on the BenQ; I'm guessing most people don't think...

Sony/BenQ/Epson/Unbranded projectors for PS4/Xbox gaming?

Yeah agreed. Some games lend themselves to the immersiveness more than others: a gigantic display makes enemies very difficult to spot in an FPS, for example.
In contrast, games that are more...

No problem ;)

At this point, that's a fair assumption.

OPTOMA HD36 DLP Full hd 3d Ready

I'd definitely hold off in your case: at least until you're in the new house (first rule of tech: purchase only when it's needed - since it almost always depreciates!)





Assuming they're...

The W1070 you're contemplating is a step up in a few ways: it uses a much better color wheel than the W600+ and therefore is much, much more color-accurate (this was quite a common criticism of the...

OPTOMA HD36 DLP Full hd 3d Ready

So a very bright - color-bright, RGB-RGB offering from Optoma. Now that sets it apart indeed.

The unusually large chassis is also likely to aid in cooling for such a hot lamp. (I wonder what the...

OPTOMA HD36 DLP Full hd 3d Ready

Guess we'll have to see!

Interestingly, the HD26 datasheet indicates 3 user presets on the remote (I'm assuming the third is for 3D):

OPTOMA HD36 DLP Full hd 3d Ready

It'd be interesting to get some clarity on this (as well as real-world pricing). Let's see what the real-world reviews have to say when they start to surface.

BenQ MH680 OR BenQ W1070 Projector

If your use is mainly for video, I'd suggest the W1070. The MH680 offers a higher lumen brightness rating with a lower-powered bulb (210watt vs the W1070's 240watt bulb). That's not usually a good...

BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$

I had a similar thing and strangely, it turned out to be that the mount wasn't 100% secure to the ceiling (or more precisely, the mount's positioning screws were not 100% tightened). So the fans...

Technically, that runs a risk of pushing dust into the optical block - which doesn't have a 'pass-through' of air since it's more-or-less sealed. If that happens, no amount of further blowing would...

BenQ w1070 - Dust Spots inside lens fix?

Where exactly were you blowing into? Did you take the lamp housing out and just blow around the housing? What were you blowing with (an air bulb or the like?)

Blowing air into the projector itself...

BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$

As chmcke01 says, ambient light will hammer the image; for projection your room needs to be relatively dark. (Night-time scenes will be most affected).
Projection won't compete in terms of...

Yeah - it'll work if you can decently darken the room.

Lag on your current HD131Xe is under 20ms... That's comparable to many LCD TV's. (Actually the BenQ isn't much higher either come to think of it).

BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$

At the moment, and at that price, yes. There's the successor (the W1070+) that was announced recently but early reviews indicate few meaningful changes for most people (and it's quite a bit pricier)....
