Hi everybody !
I bought yesterday a benq w6000, my first video projector. My father already have an optoma hd 70 since few years. I hope the w6000 doesn't have more RBE than the optoma !? With the optoma, I rarely see RBE, one time in the credit scrolling at the end.
I hesitated to buy an 2009 model instead of more recent like benq w1200 or hd33 for the same price and recent feature like CFI w600 don't have unfortunately. I paid 1299$ CAN at Ncix. I bought a 106 electric white matte screen 1.0 with that. I'll install it on ceiling, at 13.5 or 14 feets for thow distance, with the calculator it seems to be good. I'm in a basement with no window (so, very dark room)
After reading this thread, I'm little affraid about video noise, I hope it's not a big issue, the W7000 seems better for rbe and video noise, but 800-900$ more, it was out of my budget at this moment. I just want to be happy to see movie on big screen and I wanted a bright image because my girlfriend and other friends think colors with projector are washed out, I want to proove us that is not true!
on the box, I see mfg date : August 2011, version 1-102 (probably it's a firmware 1.2, the last one)
Do you think a model produced in 2011 can be better than the first one in 2009 ? (improved wheel, fan for the noise, iris, etc.) ?
I'ill give news about this projector next weekend !
