Importance of screen vs projector ?

The screen needs to be untextured (smooth) and reflective; and preferably light in color (close to white; maybe a touch of grey). That's it.

If that sounds like a wall you own, then the wall (with...

Have you had any storms or power surges? Sounds like you might've taken a surge via HDMI... (this isn't uncommon and usually affects all HDMI ports since they usually share the same board.)

Benq w1070 vs epson 2030

Then sacrifice native contrast, native black level, motion resolution, a bit of 3D performance, a bit of color accuracy and some input lag and get a 2030/2000. You'll score some extra warranty along...

That light combination definitely indicates a non-working fan. There're 4 fans in total (there's one internally that's not visible - so that one may not be functioning). Alternatively one of the...

Nicely put, Steve!

In other words: at this price point, pick your compromise. (Heck, that's at any price point to some extent, I guess!)

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

If I were buying now, I might just get the 1075 as well. But if laying wiring, ideally you want a plug point near the projector for future-proofing. Alternatively it's easy to run a plug-point...

It doesn't... The USB service port is 'slave' (rather than host) and thus doesn't provide power.

That said, if you're already running power to the projector from an outlet, powering a device...

For sure. I don't do anything that kicks up dust without it: since dust flying around and landing in the wrong place could technically affect almost any projector.

Congrats!

Yes, the fan is supposed to run for around 30-60 seconds after power-off.

You can shorten this using the 'quick cool' menu setting; but it's recommended to leave it to cool the lamp...

Projecting onto a ceiling

LED projectors generally do good job with this because they don't generate much heat (which as you've found is the problem with doing so with regular Lamp-based projectors)

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

Yeah, it's normal. SmartEco dynamically changes the amount of power going to the lamp based on image brightness (scoring extra lamp life and perceived contrast without losing any brightness); but at...

Pleasure!

5-7ms? I don't follow... It's measured at closer to 50ms on the 1075; and around 20-30ms on the W1070 (that's nearly the same as your plasma...)




Sounds like a great plan to me....

It may be possible. But there's no guarantee. The 50ms reported on the 1075 isn't more-then-average when compared to most HDTV's - so if you're using a regular TV and haven't noticed lag so far, you...
