Accordex, I received the same thing. I used Amazon Payments, so I'm not sure if that adds a whole other layer of complexity to the transaction.
Ron Jones, so are you implying that it would just be best not to use a ND filter on the W1070?
Mishari84, good point about losing shadow detail with a filter. It wouldn't be worth it to me to lose that in order to gain black level.
Thanks all. (can't wait)
All filter thoughts (at least mine) are for 2D only.
anyone try an ND2 filter on a W1070? I'd like to hear what the blacks are like (how it compares to other projectors w/ good out of the box blacks) & what it does to the colors, pop, brightness, etc, of the image.
still waiting for my VA purchase to be delivered. Did anyone get tracking info from them when purchasing recently? Wondering if tracking is a problem since it's getting shipped directly from Benq.
Yeah, I am also still not sure how smart eco is supposed to save more bulb life than the Low setting. Everyone seems to say it's brighter.
On a side note, I just cancelled my order with a different dealer where it wasn't in stock & ordered from Visual Apex where it was $70 cheaper.
Anyone know when this is supposed to be available to order in the US? My old bulb is almost dead & may need to act soon on a new projector. May just jump on the W1070 if it's going to be another month or more.
OK. So now that I know I want one of these W1070's, where's the best place (cheapest) to purchase in the US? AuudioGeneral.com ? Anyone find out yet if they are a qualified Benq dealer so the warranty will be valid?
