I think that they'll be in only next week. Inventory from two online stores show that distributors will only get them on Dec 3rd:

It would be sad, I've read white flash cruses contrast.

I got three sets Dayton audio 30 bucks a pair speakers on special from Parts Express for my surrounds, and a center, they sound very nice combined with my Klipsch THX ultra2s if I do say so myself! I actually am only running 7.1 right now, since I'm using a pair for my digital keyboard / bedroom area (rah rah). My Marantz receiver supports 9.1 or two zones, and since I'm a big gamer, I definitely plan on trying out using front height outputs with some fiddling to get a good 3d panoramic sound going on. Fedex was nearly the price of the speakers! And with 6.5 inch woofers, they deliver decent sized sound. The PJ I bought it at 850, and the shipping is free from NCIX (I think). My total NCIX invoice was a bit over 900. I didn't get anything else from there. So, yeah, with the fedex import duties it was more like 1200, still not too shabby. I got 3 super long HDMI cables too. I have pretty much everything to get me through our Canadian "Long Night", the long dark winter -- of 3d movie goodness!

I didn't get an actually shipping tracking number yet, perhaps that means I'll be waiting till the next batch arrives? Not too worried, but getting it sooner rather than later is ideal. I wasn't planning on buying this until right b4 xmas anyway.

haha, i'm not too sure, i've got a hell of a job to place the pj at the right place and I don't have a screen for now. I am building my own and I did not receive my material from seymour.. wink.gif

You've got a week-end to prepare..
post #279 of 8546
Now in stock at NCIX. I'm guessing the other ones will be shipped tomorrow. My cables came in today so I can prepare everything this week-end. Sadly, the other glasses (for the kids!) from Taiwan won't be in for a little while..

Good to see another guy from Ottawa here. Looking forward to your review. A friend of mine (Who I met through AVSforum) should hopefully be getting his soon so I look forward to having a look at it.
post #281 of 8546
Wow, this is turning out to be quite a success eh? =S lol

Looking forward for some reviews.
post #282 of 8546
I also got an invoice last night and live in the U.S. I guess we'll see what happens. I'm not very familiar with this company. Are they pretty easy to deal with as far as if there are problems or you have to return an item for some reason?

It's good to see the built in Nvidia 3D vision support. I used the Nvidia kit with the original 3D projector, the Acer 5360.

The 5360 used white flash and the 3D vision glasses w/ the IR sender looked better (contrast wise) than when using the DLP link glasses with the white flash.

The BQ W7000 is red flash, so it will be interesting to see what the BQ 1070 uses.

Here is a funny question:

My INfocus X1 would not allow adjustment to color levels nor Tint. on any input.

My HP vp6320 will allow color level and tint with input from my Cable box's component output but will not with input from my computer via SVGA.

What adjustments will this unit allow from what inputs. I really need color lever and tint control.

Does the W1080ST have lens shift? I was using the calculator on BenQ's website and it says I have to mount the projector 18 inches from the ceiling to get my 110" screen. I can't imagine the projector not having lens shift. Otherwise i would need an 18" ceiling mount! My ceiling is only 8 foot tall so having the projector hang 2 feet down is going to look ridiculous. My setup is pretty normal and I made sure to follow the basic rules (eye level = 1/3 screen bottom). Is it just the way the projector is designed?

Lens shift availableonly on W1070, but not on W1080ST. Calculator didn't lie to you :-)

This says the w1080st has '105%+5%' lens shift. What does that mean?

Hey Scotty looks like you're more anxious than me! I still get no tracking number though they're showing >10 in BC warehouse.

I have no idea. But 5%... that's definitely not lens shift.
Here is the user maual for both models ftp://files.benq.eu/projector/manuals/w1070/w1070_en.pdf
And it says no lens shift on W1080ST.

I've just read a comment about glasses from chinese owner.
He says DLP link glasses with 120Hz refresh rate are not working with BenQ W1070. Says they must be 144Hz, not 120Hz.
Does anyone knows anything about that?

I just have to chime in, parts express is really great generic brand cheap as hell and it all works great when your on a budget.

I love thumbin through the thick paper catalog vs looking at websites on the net. ah the good ol days. catalog is free.

I'm guessing it must be the offset then? You're right, a 5% lens shift is useless so it doesn't make sense.

I don't know why this thing doesn't have a higher offset? Ceiling mounting it is going to be a pain for people if they have to get it centered with the screen. I know the calculator says I need an 18" mount to achieve my setup but is that with max keystone on as well? That would really suck.

This would not surprised me since I've ordered a total of 5 pairs of 120Hz glasses including the expensive ZD201... eek.gif


On the other hand, the projector's scan rate is listed to be 120Hz. The glasses (D3) spec mentions 96/100/120/144Hz so who knows. Maybe I should have bought the BenQ glasses after all rolleyes.gif

I thought I read it was 10% up or down vertical lens shift from the centre of the image, ie 1mtr high image would allow 50mm max vertical shift (up or down) from 2 mtrs away.

Poor lens shift adjustment, and small offset might put people off an otherwise great value entry level full hd 3d pj.

Swedish user review:
http://www.minhembio.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=303930&st=100

He's quite happy so far, a bit noisy on "normal mode" but quiet on "eco", that's not really surprising since it's a budget projector.

Judging from that image of the W1080ST, it's nowhere close to center of the screen. I dont know if its keystone or offset?

It shows a trapezoid image, so there is a keystone effect. The 1070 has automated keystone correction using a sensor in the projector, so I presume the 1080ST does the same.

@nthydro when I said 'from the centre of the image' it means, that is how the lens shift is measured. In other words, the % (up or down) is from the horizontal centre line of the projected image. The user manual declares a total 20% lens shift (10% up from the centre or 10% down) Yet someone here mentioned 5%.
So I guess we have to wait for a 'hands on' user evaluation, once someone gets their w1070 setup & running.
