I am not sure if mine are 1.4 or not I thought older cables would work as well. I really just needed to know if I needed a 3d capable receiver.

if your passing the audio to the AVR and then from the Video to the Projector, yes a 3d capable AVR and two 3d capable HDMI cables will be needed.

Well I thought I had the problem fixed with my no signal problem. Guess I was wrong... I'm still having to unplug and replug the hdmi cable every time on start up. Does anyone have any ideas on whats causing this? If more info is needed just ask

I own a benq w6000 and i am very happy with the 2d image. Now i consider to buy a W1070 because i want the option of 3d. My question: Is the 2d image of the W1070 as good as benq w6000?

Many thanks for a reply and i hope you can help me with my decision what to do.

Well i' m blown away by its 3D quality it is very good zero crosstalk sharp and has enough light output in 3D.....I use Sainsonic 3D glasses and they work very well. 3D on a 90" screen is so much better than on a 55" led tv.....and the fan noise is the same as my old Infocus IN76 so no problem.....

3 Quick Questions:

1) Why is the option for side by side 3d greyed out when playing youtube videos in 3d? I am playing them through the ps3 app and the option is greyed out. However, the top-bottom option is able to be selected. Why is the SBS option greyed out on the w1070?

2) I have tried 2 3D movies (avengers and Prometheus), and i was very underwhelmed. I did not see any pop out at all. Not even once. And the actors all look like cardboard cutouts. Also, when the camera pans, the image looks weird in some parts, sort of like how it is with a wide angle lens. Its hard to describe, but the image looks sort of flat and wavy.

3) Any place I can go to check out some cool 3d clips etc on my ps3? SOmewhere where i can stream videos..I have netflix, but for some strange reason, the 3d movies won't open (it says, this title is unavailable, try another selection, but the first time i put it on a 3d title in netflix, it worked..just never again)

Any ideas? thanks

Any Owners in Northern Virginia?

Last DLP projector I demo was optoma HD20 at Best Buy. I experience Rainbow and decided to buy an EPSON LCD projector.

It's time to upgrade and I wonder if any of the stores in Northern Virginia demo Benq W1070? I am hoping that I will not experience rainbow with this model because I always preferred picture on lower end DLP than the LCD ones.

If any W1070 owner wants to demo, I will appreciate it.
post #2289 of 8477
I see no rainbow whatsoever while watching the Dark Knight. But again, it's probably best if you could demo it yourself. Some are more sensitive than others.

Well is doing your job for the time been, let me ask you thjis how far is your screen or wall away from your PJ? reason I ask I barely have 9 feet away from a 100" and don't think that it would work for me since my Sanyo 1080P is 11 feet away and everything is perfect with that set up.

Mike, I have the Mustang mount. You can orient the mount to provide horizontal sliding of 2 3/4" total. The upper bracket has some wiggle room too of about 1/4".

zapper, my lens is 9'4" from the far wall hitting an 88" screen. Based on the BenQ calculator, you would need 8'4" to 10' 11" from the lens to a 100" screen. Given the projector depth at just over 9 1/2", doesn't sound like it would work for you.
post #2293 of 8477
So ps3 to 1070 for video. Then ps3 to non 3d receiver with optical for sound. Would this work without a new receiver to get full 3d?

Thanks for your reply, it should work at 9' 6" according Projection Dimensions for a 100" screen the average setting for the BenQ is 2911 cm Average setting and that is exactly 9' 6", seen it on the BenQ manual Pages 14-16, just have to make double sure, so their is hope. correct me if I am wrong in the event of my wrong calculation...

Thanks

Thanks for sharing the pic!

I put it in high altitude mode too, even though i'm sitting at less than 2000 ft.

Here are a few shots of my setup.

I've just ordered the W1070 from NCIX based on the few reviews I could see, for $996 delivered incl 13% Ontario tax and express RMA/replacement/insurance, ($25-just in case). Keeping my fingers crossed smile.gif Would be nice to see a detailed review but its a brand new model and I decided to go for it instead of the HC8350 (an older model) that I was thinking of buying from across the border (US).1.gif

If your lens distance from the screen is anywhere between 8'4" to 10' 11" - you should be good to go. Good luck.

I have the 1.04 firmware and the latest firmware on the Onkyo. Direct connection from each device works fine with same cables.

Did you happen to figure anything out about this? I too am using a 515 and I have to unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in to the projector everytime I turn stuff on. Pretty annoying... was hoping someone could figure this out...
post #2301 of 8477
Just received my 3D corp glasses and they work like a charm. No red or juttering.
post #2302 of 8477
Can someone give me some type of proof that this projector runs at 144hz? I am trying to prove it to 3dtv corp but because of the price point he does not believe it can be 144hz. I have shown him forums and competitors information but because there is nothing from benq that talks about triple flash or 144hz it hasn't been good enough.
post #2303 of 8477
Can everyone who is using this projector start listing what screens and their gains that they have been using with it? trying to get a grasp on what to look for, I can fit between a 92 to 96 inch diagonal screen but Im looking for one that is motorized, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. smile.gif

For anyone waiting for Benq D3 glasses, it may take a while. I ordered a pair from B&H about 2 weeks ago -- they listed on their web site "7-14 days" shipping time and indicated that they would be sent directly from the manufacturer.

I just got the following email from B&H in response to my query for a status update:
Code:
Good afternoon Dan,

This should ship mid March.  We will email tracking as soon as available.

On the flip side, I've had a *fantastic* experience with TrueDepth and -- although I have nothing to compare them with (my first projector and first 3D glasses) -- I can wholeheartedly agree with all the positive comments that others have made about the TrueDepth glasses and the wonderful support provided by them.

Currently my Sanyo PJ is 11.6" away from my screen , so with that in mind just move up 1" forward to 10.6" and that should do it, this would be my third or fourth projector and I am hesitant that the BenQ would not meet the expectation of the PJ that have had, it seems the price is low.

This should get you pointed in the right direction.

okay I will take a look at that, I was thinking of getting EliteScreens VMAX2 Motorized screens, I was just looking for opinions on various screen manufactures, which ones people feel you get your most money with while being of quality and so forth, I will start with Coderguy app and keep searching around.

Edit: That Calculator was super helpful, it confirmed that the mount I want to use will be in range of the drop requirements so I can go ahead and order the mount smile.gif Now on to figuring out what screen will work best. smile.gif

I have tried several brands and I agree that the TrueDepth are the best so far. I suggest that if you are into to 3D get one or two pairs of the TrueDepth and get the SanSonic for guests if price is a factor. The True-Depth costs about twice as much as the SanSonic. I find the TrueDepth more comfortable and better made they also cost more than twice the price. The color and 3D is the same with both brands but the TrueDepth being larger seems to block the red flash better. I aslo would not worry about waiting for the Benq glasses. some reviews felt that they were not the best. They are also very expensive.

Okay since this will be my first projector and first projector install, since the lens is offset from center what would you recommend is the easiest way to go about installing this projector?

I would assume you would start with the screen first (in my case dead center of the room) and then from there go about mounting the projector, would you want to install it to the ceiling mount and then say have a friend hold it focus it in and what not until its crystal clear and the image is centered to the screen and then make marks on the ceiling and go about installing it or is there an easier way?

I plan to get the low profile Mustang mount.

I set my projector on a table and got the image the size I wanted, then looked up to the ceiling and that is where I am mounting the projector. I also have the mustang mount.

I have always mounted the projector first, established the image location and size on the wall, then install the screen at that position. With the projector mounted first, you can display the test grid pattern to level and rotate for proper positioning. Having a friend try and hold the projector still would be VERY challenging.

I measure the distance to the center of the screen, then transfer the measurement to the ceiling location from a common side wall. The lens offset from center is 2.66" that you have to account for (ASSUMING you attach the mount at dead center). The Mustang mount provides about 2 3/4" side to side movement so you can fine tune the projector AFTER the screen is installed if need be. I purchased a Carada screen and the mount style allows the screen to be slid horizontally (if you miss the mark).

This stuff can get VERY tricky, so measure and remeasure frequently.
