Chromatic distortion on mine doesn't look bad.

I do notice a small annoyance though, that while this Benq supports 1-to-1 pixel timing from the PC (1920x1080@60Hz) , I cannot completely by-pass noise-reduction or sharpness. It affects the clarity of the PC desktop a bit.

11315, 11032, 11212 These are the remote code that i have tried in my onkyo remote control to control benq 1070w projector but none of them is working. Nor does the learning part of the control is being red. Can any one help if you have the codes for benq?
My ipazzport remote did learn the benq remote but i need to incorporate benq controls in my onkyo to use macros.
The projector turns off my onkyo 818 receiver just fine but it doesnt turn on the receiver and nor does it turn on/off by the reciever's controls.

I don't see anything in your pics.

Can you explain the pictures a bit? Thanks. smile.gif

Some reviewer said that there was no neutral sharpness setting on the W7000 so that would explain.

Can you hear an audible pitch difference of spinning wheel between the cinema and dynamic modes? That would nail down whether they all run at 6X or if only dynamic does, like on the W7000.

Hmmm....Looks like I just wrote the review for him in 3 minutes. What's taking so long Art? smile.gif

I am anxiously waiting for the review too. biggrin.gif

Just buy it. Unless you wanna pay double, you won't find better.

This isn't chromatic disortion..........I just realized I had the sharpness on all the way. Turning it back to 7, it looks good now.. spent tonight mounting my projector.........Theres only 2 of 3 screws going into the wooden beam as one of the screws head has been stripped.....2/3 of the screws 2 inches deep into wood is plenty strong right!?

I spent an hour or2 fine tuning and installling my projector mount....then an hour later after closing up I was afraid it was going to fall from the ceiling in the middle of the night, so I tried loosening it up.....only to realize how hard it was to perfectly aim the projection and now I have to do it all over tomorrow. I don't want to take it all apart and put one more screw in...

Does anyone have any links to those sharpness test patterns?

Do all projectors have to be manually focus adjusted? With this one, you gotta dial it in the perfect millimeter....Does everyone put the lens cap back on after they are done with the projector for the night? Whenever I put that lens cap on, it ruins the focus.....do u guys adjust it everytime u turn it on and take the cap off? Any better tricks like putting a piece of carboard over it instead of tape so u dont have to fiddle with focus?

Just leave lens cap off. There is really no need for it when projector is mounted. Small dust particles do not affect the image and it is easy to clean anyway.

I think Art may have missed and made an error in his review regarding 3D glasses. He speaks about the glasses being IR ones but in fact the 1070 uses DLP ones and since there is no emitter with DLP glasses IR or RF glasses can never work with this projector. That being said there are many low priced glasses available that are much better than the Benq's that sell for $100 each. One can buy 4 or the Sainsonic for about $100 on Ebay and get 2 pairs of the highly rated True Depth for the price of 1 Benq .

That being said the review really gives a thumbs up this unit and it seems like a great buy in the under $3,000 class. It will also make a great addition for someone looking to add a second projector that has no crosstalk for 3D, gaming and casual use.

Cool review from Art, but I am still wondering if the Mits HC4000 performance is better in 2D...will see.

That review is still pretty messy. Art needs to clean it up, particularly the Calibration section. It's still referencing the Epson 3010/3020. Looks like a poor job of copy and paste.

I have noticed that too, but my english is not good enough and I suppose it was me not understanding the text. :P

Yeah, just needed a bit of 'proof-reading'.

But overall, a very nice review and lots of love for the W1070.

Now, I just need to wait for this projector to hit the $850 mark and I am in. That, and I need to get rid of my Epson 8100.
post #1037 of 8437
After a while with W1070, I will add some notes compared to W7000.

W1070: (I use Kraine's setting, which is very accurate)
- Low lag
- Accurate and beautiful colors.
- Picture is flat without depth and motion is not very good. I could not a complete a movie on it yet.


W7000:
- Used it with Hoya ND2 filter, which improved the picture dramatically.
- Sold it because it gave me severe nausea, I do not know the reason yet. Someone said could be the 3D glasses.
- Colors, depth and motion where noticeably better.
- Lag was noticeable.

If I would choose DLP projector again, I would choose Benq W7000 with ND4 filter on a white screen, or try Mitsubishi HC4000 if I want it for gaming more than 3D.

Just hit 450 hours on my W1070, loving the picture on this. Definitely worth the $850 I paid for it.

For $850, no doubt.

But for close to $1100-$1200, which seems to be the current rate, I am having a really hard time between this and a refurb W6000 (for 2D only).

Art's Review mentions no Anamorphic Lens support, but the manual claims the W1070 has a "Letter Box" aspect mode to do the 33% vertical stretch needed.

Can an owner confirm that in the letter box mode the picture is streched vertically? (that it removes the black bars on a movie that was shot in 2.35:1 aspect ratio?)

And most important, the one flaw that prevents me from buying the w7000 is that this letter box mode does NOT work while the projector is playing 3d content. Can someone confirm that the image can still be stretched with letter box mode while 3D is on. Not looking to shell out an extra few hundred for a dedicated video processor. My current optoma hd66 will do the vertical stretch in both 2d and 3d.

Thanks!!
post #1042 of 8437

and Art says that the "smart eco" mode is great, when everyone else complains that it's terribly laggy huh.

 

anyone knows the diameter of the W1070 optics please? I'd like to order a ND4 filter =)

post #1043 of 8437
I really enjoyed Art's review...really made my decision even harder. I just want to get my purchase right this time after not being completely happy with my current PJ (not the projector's fault) the pro8200. Well, here's a interesting video with the benq1070 and the Darbee.

Have you tried them yet? Kinda scared to dabble in ISF, when the posts arent even in English...

Nothing much really...guy is just using the darbee at 60% with the benq w1070. It probably would have been better to see the before and after results.

I am watching the video in HD and I can see an awesome better enhanced image, much more crisp, with the Darbee ON. Amazing, but 400 $ is alot for me.
post #1049 of 8437
Hey ^^

This "guy" is me !

In the video, you're seeing the 'before and after" using Darbee in "Hidef mode" - just look at the black line moving from left to right and you'll see with and without darbee postprocessing the movie (activate HD on Youtube wink.gif)

I've made this video, because, here in France, Darbee has just launched and lot's of people are wondering if the ugrade in picture quality worths 250€ ^^

Panasonic BDT-120 + Darbee + BenQ w1070 => great combo and amazing picture quality for 1000€ here ^^
