BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$ - Page 137

post #4081 of 8481
Sorry plz re-read. I updated my post xP.

But having said the above. If you only intend to watch 2D movies and 2D games 99% of the time keep the HD33. Because it does those tasks well.

This evening im watching shawn of the dead on the w1070, and even tho ive turned all the noise filtering options on my BRP and on the projector, the image is covered in constant random noisy speckling. Its very unwatchable, i can now see why what hifi gave it 3/5 becuase most people only watch 2D, and thats the benqs weakest feature. This is my second unit so its not a fault, they both had this issue. I never had this issue on my HD33.

In 3D the w1070 dies not have this image noise issue.

Hi, I'm getting ready to buy this pj, BenQ PJ Calculator shows that I'll need to mount it 2ft from ceiling (10ft ceiling). Will this mount from Amazon work with this PJ?

 

VideoSecu LCD/DLP Projector Ceiling Mount Bracket White Fits both flat or Vaulted ceiling PJ2W 1CA

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000IDC0K2/ref=gno_cart_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1YX7EB80E4EIU

 

It's only $29, much less than the other mounts, what am I missing here?

With shift it's at Y= -(height+shift), or equivalently, Y = -height - shift
Forgive me lol, I didn't really totally get what you were saying. Could you maybe explain a bit more clearer?

To say that it's unwatchable in 2D is a pretty big stretch. The projector is a little noisier than competing units, but not so much as to significantly detract from an otherwise excellent image.

In regards to what hifi, well they seem to think that the Panasonic PTAE8000 is a better all round projector than the HW50, or the x35; I'm not sure many on this forum would agree, however, and I don't place a great deal of faith in their overly concise reviews.

The noise is very distracting. I would rather have a less detailed picture with no noise than the contant mosquitoes flying all over the image. Fift Element was much better, but once you notice them you cant help see them always.

Last week i was side by side testing these two projectors (iron man 2D) when my sister and her boyfriend came in. I was only projecting both at about 40 in diaginals and straight away they said the HD33 was better becuase the w1070 was too noisy! And this is coming from someone who asked me, "why have you got so many blu rays? Arent they exactly the same as DVD?" I laughted at him. So if he can see the noise too, i think thats a good warning.

Innitially when i got my w1070. I watched a section of mulin rouge and enjoyed it. I noticed the noise but assumed i had set the details enhancement too high on my blu ray player. Then I spent the rest of the time playing 3D games on ps3 and watching 3D blu rays. And the w1070 does excellently well in those areas.

Now im watching 2D im a bit dissapointed, the noise is very distracting. I would have got the HD25 becuase i seen comparo pictures and its image quality looks better. But the w1070 i prefered for the shorter throw lens.

The honest truth about projectors is that unlike TVs, not one does all aspects satisfactory. Thats why i have a HW50es to make up for the benqs less satisfying 2D picture. Its a real shame. If the 2D was not noisy, i would hve simlpy sold my HW50 and saved it towards a 4K TV. Oh well.

And yes i dont believe many reviews these days. I had the panasonic AE8000 and returned it. Its 2D picture was great, but its 3D picture was simply appalling.

Did you try to use smart eco mode and turn brilliant color off? The speckles sound like you might have a bad HDMI cable.
I suggest that you test it with a Blu-Ray player and a short cable near the projector. Hope this helps.

I have read these occasional comments about the 1070's image noise with interest and confusion, wondering what are others seeing that I'm not? At geek at heart, I found a few explanations with video clips here and there on the net, so I do understand the concept a bit better, but the bottom line for me, a technical novice, is that the image I am seeing across the board with this unit is "clean," and visually pleasing. I look forward to learning how to do a calibration when I can afford the tools (Eye-One?) but I hope I don't learn to be so discriminating that I can't appreciate the value and performance of a projector like the 1070.

I need help understanding the vertical offset for this projector. I see it's 110%-130%+-5%, which I don't understand and don't know if it will work on the setup I'm thinking about.

I plan on ceiling mounting a 135" Elite VMax2 electric screen, which is listed with a top black area of 8 inches. So I'm guessing the screen will start about a foot from the ceiling. I want to use Peerless PRGUNV ceiling mount, and don't know if I need an extension with it. The projector will be mounted at the midpoint of the distance range for a 135" screen.

So my question is, can I use the Peerless mount without an extension give the vertical offset of this projector? If not, is there another mount which makes more sense? Thanks! I really appreciate the experts on this board given my limited knowledge in this area.

Hello everybody, I just bought it and set it up in one rack up to my bed to the wall. I bought one videosecu mount ceiling but is unstable. I am little confuse with the calibration. The 3d is wonderfull, but in 2 d it seems too bright with washed colors. Can anybody recommend me some settings? My screen is one electric with 1.3 gain. I am interesting for viewing in dark room. I try smart Eco in cinema bc off clarity 0 and cms all the colors 58 except the hue and the saturation, it seems ok with these settings but I would like to know if I can do it better. Thank you

While in 3D mode...

Make sure your Lamp is set to Smart-Eco (versus the default of Normal which has less contrast).

Go into your Advanced options and set the Gamma to BenQ, turn off Brilliant Color and under Color Management set each of the six colors to 58 for Saturation only (default is 50 for each) leave Hue and Gain alone.

* If red seems too much then set it to 56 versus 58.

Please keep in mind this is not about accuracy as there is no way for those without the proper gear to do it correctly (unless you buy calibration gear or hire a pro) but this should at least bring those feeling that the 3D image is dull some joy. wink.gif

Best of luck,
Jason

Thanks for posting this up Jason. I tried your numbers last night and am very pleased. The Benq continues to impress me, so much so that I rarely turn the JVC on anymore.

Just tossing in my 2 cents on the videosecu mounts. IMO they're pretty crappy. I bought one at first cuz I like to be cheap when I can get away with it but this definitely wasn't worth it. It doesnt hold very well and Its cheap flimsy metal that bends when you try to actually tighten it down. I used it for a week and couldn't stand it. Shell out the extra 5-10 bucks for the mustang mount. Well worth it. Real solid and adjusts/holds well.

Zero noise, zero RBE. I must be immune to them both.

Really - - as far as "noise" goes - - I guess I'm missing the boat because I see zero on my projector. And I haven't seen very many comments about "noise" in this forum - - so I don't know if it the setup, signal or something else. But - - I'm glad it's not an issue for me!
post #4095 of 8481
Yes my screen is 100 , can you suggested me any filter that makes good job to not be very expensive?
post #4096 of 8481
I just order this Hoya 72mm 2X Neutral Density Multi-Coated Lens Filter, I am gonna try it and I am gonna see. The only thing is I don't know how to tape it to hold it on the lens.
post #4097 of 8481
For those experiencing 'noise.' I really hope they are testing on an untouched blu-ray, and not some mkv rip.

I have 0 issues with RBE, 0 issues with 'noise,' and 0 mechanical issues.

Per this thread, I was told that a 67 mm ND filter size was correct, and not 72mm? Thanks in advanced.
post #4098 of 8481
I do hope its my hdmi cable. Will try again tonight.

I ended up getting a 62mm to 72mm metal ring adapter for a 72mm ND2 (in my case - ND2-400) filter.

The ring adapter (plastic) fits nicely to the outside of the W1070 lens (see previous post - pictures). Then, the ND2 filter (mine is metal and glass) screws into the ring adapter.

I just had an Email conversation with "Zapper" - - and he said that he basically tightens the adapter to the outside of the BenQ projector lens area and it somewhat stays in place. (No threads to directly screw to the projector.) If it was bumped - - it would probably fall off.

I think it was Da Game Pimp (not sure!) that was considering a silicone adhesive (heat resistant?) to affix the adapter and then just unscrew the lens for 3D and back on again for 2D.

There is also heat resistant tape or electrical tape - - if you want to tape from the top of the PJ and have it hang over. (Gorilla glue says it is heat resistant after it drys.)

I'm not sure which solution I'll use. (Just got my lens and adapter!)

best to use HDMI Ethernet cable
post #4101 of 8481
Here's my nd filter setup, it's a 72mm to 67mm adapter, I had to sand it a little to get it to fit perfect then I used a little clear silicon. It looks like it came from factory with it. Now I'm just waiting for my Nd2 and nd4 to show in mail. With my 92 inch 1.3 gain screen in a light controlled room it's way to bright but great for 3d.

Will the below 125' screen works for this projector?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Q87LM6/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_10?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER


The reason I'm worrying, as per w1070 manual, i didn't see 125 inch. Seeing only 120inch

I'm projecting on my white wall currently, and I'm able to project 150+ diagonally. The screen (motarized) above 125' cost more of my budget rolleyes.gif
post #4104 of 8481
I don't know much about the screen but the projector is very bright compared to many others out there. It really depends if you have a light controlled room and the walls are dark it will work.
post #4105 of 8481
Thanks. Its light controlled room. Do you recommend any screens for this proj?

Hi guys I need some help from you smile.gif


I'm just about to buy this projector, mainly for watching TV and content of my HTPC.

I have never had a projector so I have some very basic questions:

1. How will this work in ambient light, I'm going to use it in my living room and I have windows that some sun will pass through. Will it be completely unwatchable during day time ?

2. I’m not looking for the biggest picture frame so anywhere from 60” to 100” should be fine for me. My living room is around 3.5m (11ft) from wall to wall is this distance ok for this projector ?

3. How loud is the fan/operational noise, is it always noticeable during operation ?

4. Rainbow effect. Am I going to notice this ?

However I suspect that the w1070 steadily works at 3*2 color wheel speed so maybe owners cannot hear the difference between 2x and 3x or maybe the w0170 doesn't make that noise of the color wheel. If any one can compare the two and tells us that would nice. smile.gif

Hi, I bought the w1070 last weekend and have been testing it for some days now, when I switch to 24 fps on the source I can clearly hear a pitched noise, and it keeps the pitched tone/noise all the time when using 24 fps. This issue alone have been forcing me to use 60 fps instead, but both 25 and 50 fps are "inaudible" as well, only 24 fps has the issue, or at least clearly noticeably.
post #4109 of 8481
I'm running the benq with sharpness at 7 clarity 0 cineston cms rgbcmy numbers dropped the 95 down to 90-93 on red left green at 95 and blu at 93
The red 255 green 256 and blue 254
Then thru a darblet darblet at hd 50 and it has a clean image

But with mkv rips you will notice the bad rip from good one as the benq shows the flaws and noise from them the better the rip the better the pic this is with 1080p rips and more
Pronounced on 720p TV shows but

On untouched blu ray no issues with noise very clean image.

I had a hc 4000 image was dimmer and not as detailed.
