Can't be beat for under $1000

Posted

Pros: Great brightness, Amazing colors, Good contrast and blacks, Placement range is great due to a good zoom and a lot of play with keystone

Cons: Fan can be a little loud at times

I think what amazed me the most with this projector other than it's value is how great it was out of the box without any calibration. I just got it a couple days ago for $850 and haven't had a chance to mount it or install a screen. So I just set it on an end table and threw the picture on a grey wall and viola! Gorgeous picture just by hitting the power button! So easy to setup I can't even find a single complaint. Sure I can calibrate it and get a slightly better picture, but right out of the box it's great! I've tried to view a few different types of material including TV in 720p and 1080p as well as a movie in 1080p and BF3 on my Xbox360. All of these scenarios performed...

Extreme value for money

Pros: Color and sharpness

Cons: Motion detail in 3D

I'm really pleased about performance for a projector in this price range. I wasn't expecting this level of detail, sharpness and feature for such a "cheap" projector. In my opinion the W1070 can easily be compared to the slightly older double-priced BenQ W6000, Optoma HD82 etc. The sharpness is way better than I've expected, I'm really amazed that this detail level can be achieved in a projector at this price level. There are about 5 different picture settings, which can be fully customized.The colors out-of-box is okay in cinema-mode, however dynamic and standard settings are way off. The good thing about this projector is the picture settings which gives some really nice and detailed...

Excellent in-class projector

Posted

Pros: Good contrast ratio, 1080p, low noise, adequate brightness with ambient light, inexpensive, easy to navigate menu and simple setup

Cons: Remote looks cheap

The Benq W1070 3D Projector is an excellent in-class projector with minor flaws. After reading other negative reviews on this projector regarding the bad menu, fan noise and light bleed, I would have to say that I completely disagree. The only flaw I found was more in regards to the remote rather than the projector which isn't a big deal in my opinion. The remote is quite smaller than my old Epson Home Cinema 710HD Projector and feels cheaply made (i.e., made in china). I have the projector front ceiling mounted about 5 feet from where the seating area is and can barely hear the projector. My old projector was the Epson Home Cinema 710HD and I'm able to detect a huge difference in the...
