BenQ W700 - Page 2

post #31 of 78
Loads of reviews refered mainly to other "competing" projectors But W600's were also handy.

I don't have nvidia graphic card or external converter to try 3d, sorry.

Lot's of reviews on Amazon.de! Can't read it? Use a translator...

And just go and buy the Acer if it's all about the color wheel. And if you care about 3D, buy the Acer H5360BD with hdmi 1.4. I need a ST that's why I chose the Benq.

Man, calm down. I dont live in Holand or Germany, so money is an issue for me, I have to be carefull where I spend my little money. And by the way, I bought the Benq W700, its on the way.

Apparently the 10000:1 Contrast Ratio of the BenQ it's dynamic?!
I understand that in this case this is not the real contrast ratio, correct?

"Apparently" ? Where did you see that?
post #37 of 78
Actually, The "Dynamic" could be referred to to Dynamic iris (or Variable Iris) which controls the amount of projected light. I have read on the internet that these feature increases the Contrast Ratio.

Question? Since the W600+ 3D WXGA has a native resolution of 1280 x 720p, will it only display up to 720p? I ask because the specs for it say maximum resolution of 2560 x 1600p. The spec sheet shows it will handle video signals ranging from 480i/p-576i/p-720p-1080i/p. I'm a bit confused about interpretation of those specs. Towit, will the projector scale everything to only 720p regardless of the input signal? Or can I manually adjust display resolution to stay in full 1080p? And is resolution delivered/adjusted via a VGA cable or HDMI to change resolutions? I'm new to front projectors. And I don't want to buy one that won't let me optimize viewing at 1080p. Should I just buy a front projector with a 1080p "Native Resolution"? What are the pros & cons?

What I can tell is that when I use the PS3 with BenQ W700, It tells me 1920x1080 even that its native resolution is 720p....

That's odd. Nice to see you got the projector though and the review looks superb.

Did you call BenQ regarding the overheating issues? Maybe it was that specific unit. Probably should try to get it replaced for a brand new unit..

Nice review!

Last friday I received my W710ST, the quality is amazing!
No overheating issues and the rainbow effect is minimal.

Next stop : 3D-XL or VP3D1.

Thanks, the review is great!
Do you think you will be able to post a video showing the projection of a 720p file or Bluray?
post #45 of 78
Thanks for the answer KimoProjector. And thanks for the links above. They were very helpful. Unfortunately I'm still a bit confused over this issue. I'm unsure whether it's just reporting the input signal or reporting output as 1080. So I think I'm going to play it safe and just buy a projector with 1080p Native output. That way, I'll know for sure. I'm looking at the BenQ 1200, Optoma HD33, Mitsubishi 3800, and Viewsonic Pro8200. I'll likely pull the trigger on one of those models unless I spot a deal I can't pass on a 1080p closeout. I'm just getting started down the Front Projection road. So I don't want to be too esoteric out of the gate. I am concerned however over the rainbow effect.

Edit:

I got the answer to my question from this CNet article.

http://reviews.cnet.com/hdtv-resolution/

I'm going with a 1080p native projector so I max out all of my sources like Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, XBox 360 and PS3. And I can max out most broadcasts in 1080i/720p. The W700 really piqued my interest because of the great price...and reputation. Thanks for the help.

Actually, at the beginning I thought about doing that but then I realized that taking photos samples with my camera will show better the quality of the picture. I am not sure yet if I will upload new video or not.

Good for you

Please let us know about the 3D with either 3D-XL or V3D1 if you decide to get one.

Could I use my laptop with blu-ray drive instead of 3D-XL or VP3D1 ?

My laptop has 6520 Radeon which supports 3d (A6-3400M CPU)

Hi all, I know this isn't a HT projector question, but I reckon this would be tha place for ideas for a reasonably priced 2nd projector for work. Im not after a road warrior, but a smaller sized light unit with good lumens and network connectivity is just what I'm after....

Anyone have some links to some good review or know of a suitable model?

Thx

Greg

Sorry if this is in the wrong place?...

And here is a new sample (FF13) with some light and surrounded by One Piece posters:

So, what's your experience with it? Did you notice the rainbow effect? What about 3D...?
post #55 of 78
I was looking at the manual for this projector, and I can't find any setting or reference to Dynamic Black or Auto Iris. So a question for the owners, does this model appear to have a DI? Can you see pumping in dark/bright scenes?

I have a suspicion that there is no DI in the W700 or W710st. You would think they would advertise it on the box, manual, or even on top of the unit itself. And not to have any menu setting for it, seems strange. Looks like the 10000 to 1 CR is just marketing.

Does this model work with the 3d-XL?

I'm having trouble figuring out from the thread.

Thanks.
post #57 of 78
Just a quick bump here. I've ordered a Benq W700 and if anybody is interested I'll post my impressions here once it arrives.

I am not setup for PC-3D yet, so I won't be able to comment initially on the 3D performance of this PJ.

I ordered mine in last October and been quite happy with it... 2D and 3D are just great. I love playing Battlefield 3 with my 88 inch screen

Cheers,

What is "DI"?!
