Your can read every word posted here and STILL find problems with some things you don't like about a product.
I bought a HP projector for $1600.00 7 years ago. No complaint but it is dieing and I really wanted a new projector for Xmas. Even with it I had to try a couple to debug them and find one I really liked. This is the main point of being allowed to make returns.
How about addressing the problems I have found with this projector?
When something moves fast I see a bunch of small lines on the edges, I think it is the system not keeping up with the action.
I can see the same thing on a Pentium Four computer watching Live TV on Beyond TV, the one cpu cannot keep up with the incoming picture and display it at the same time. It will play back a recorder show fine but not do both at the same time. (Or it could be the video card…)
This projector looks like the computer. Same kind of lines on the edges of moving things.
Funny but my tired old HP vp6320 series: XGA (1024 × 768) projector did NOT have this problem nor does my Mits DLP TV, nor my wife’s Sony LCD Projector either, so what is up with this and what do I have to do to get rid of this problem.
I have seen my cable system pixulate with fast moving total pictures but this seems different.
And it does not seem like DLP Rainbows, I have seen them and this is not them.
I should point out currently I am feeding it via a SVGA cable from my computer and from my cable box by a Comportment to SVGA adapter thought a switcher to the projector by the same cable.
Also watched a old TV show on HULU and this was not there: TV show was at a lower Res...
Also a Bluray movie did not cause them....I am starting to think this projector shows the flaws and limits of my Cox Cable system...I think it lacks a error correcting of image clean up or smoothing software all my other systems seem to have?
I have ordered a couple of HDMI Cables to supply the projector from my computer and from the cable box, I am hoping this will clear things up a little.
I also hope the HDMI feeds will open the color level and tint controls. (they are grayed out in all modes)
SO does the new BenQ W1070 do all of these things as well??
Is it a flaw of the BenQ line?
What inputs open the color and tint controls??
What do I look for in specs or something to tell me a unit can handle high volume of action??
Feedback on these questions please.
I ordered a pair of the Saisonic 144hz off eBay and will try them on this projector.
And as this is the baby to the W1070, it has the Encon setting which I found useable as one person said: you almost need sunglasses to watch these.
Watch a couple of recorded TV shows and part of a movie and it really shows so much more than my OLD HP, color range is much better adn contras, deep deep Blacks, I cannot even think of going back.
ALSO this unit matches my computer, it plays the same colors, the HP was NOT working at all well with the computer, if not for a deep ATI Video control panel in the computer it would have even been unwatchable, and even then it was off, (I posted about the green problem..)the BenQ has no problem showing the same colors that are on the computer's screen.
One last minor complaint: the settings window: On the HP once you selected a control like brightness, all of the window would go away leaving ONLY the setting bar at the bottom of the screen and if you when up or down you could step thought the other controls without it blocking the screen.
This BenQ keeps the whole window open blocking the view of what your wanting to adjust. It can be put to one corner but still blocks 1/4th of the picture.
Wonder if these is way to change that.
Answers to these questions will help me figure out rather I even want a W1070 or keep this until I can step up to a better projector if the W1070 has the same problems.
