On my old HP when you went into the adjustment screen once you selected one setting to adjust it reduced to just that adjustment all by its self on the bottom of the screen and if you used a up or down button it changed to another adjustment still one bar on the bottom of the screen.
This gives you a much better view of what your changing.
Not a deal breaker but the HP system is nicer.

thanks, just ordered four. When the BenQs go on sale, I'll pick up two more, six should be enough for most movie nights.

ps it seems someone in this thread needs to learn some netiquette and not try to Bogart this discussion with irrelevant nonsense. do the mods read this? some of this is bordering on trollish behavior (added to ignore///sigh, but it's still disruptive and annoying)

I have 4 3D glasses, which I will try once I receive my projector on Monday:

- 3D CORP: Brownish tent and uncomfortable, will work as many people said. Run on batteries.
- Sainsonic: Greenish tent and should work.
- 3Active: Very comfortable, light, quality and tint is very neutral and light. Probably wont work unfortunately.
- True Depth: From my experience when I had it with W7000:Very comfortable and unquestionable performance and quality. CS said it work up to 240Hz signal, will see.

If 3Active or True Depth wont work, I will definitely order BenQ glasses.

I too plan on buying a W1070, or was until I learn about some of its lacks and flaws. ( It only has 2000L VS 2800 L in my WM516) Still considering it but I need to consider other makes and models, so IF I have to pay a little more to get the features I want, then I want to learn of them when compared to the W1070.
I keep asking the same questions, does or does not the W1070 have color and tint controls locked out in all but composite and s-video inputs??
AS I can not pick one up at Fry's Electronics and see for my self I am trying to learn all I can and color control is a major part of a systems function to me.
I rather NOT bring one home and then return it used because people here is unwilling to help me figure out if this is the projector for me.
I thought that was why your here, not just to praise it to heaven and not look at any limitations and flaws.
Good God the guy above my post talked about how he hooked his up to his ps3, then compared the W1070 to his 55" sony lcd tv then gave a report on saisonic 144hz ebay glasses.
You did not tell him to only talk about the W1070....
I found that HDMI locks out other outputs and reported that, and ask if other found this happening to their hookup with a W1070 (and other equipment)
I keep learning alot about projectors here, and want to learn more.

Are the responses to your off topic questions reading on your monitor differently than mine??? You are comparing a conference room projector to a home theater projector and having a childish tantrum when people dont want to hear anymore about a projector NOT MEANT for home theater use in a thread about a NEWLY released projector that IS MEANT for home theater use. You know the reason there is no specific posts about your projector on a HOME THEATER site, quite honestly its garbage for a home theater environment. Go to a tool site and ask why a 10mm ratchet wont take out drywall screws.....please let the rest of the new owners have a productive thread ABOUT THE W1070 or get out???? I am interested in the W1070 and reading through all this garbage about a non related projector is beyond frustrating.

Thanks and have a nice day smile.gif

I am PSYCHED. playing in 3d multiplayer was smooth and vivid, I am not sure I will play that way all the time, but its a must try, have to log some more time, it will take a little while to get used to...

Unacceptable Input lag is a potential deal-breaker for me. I'm trying to decide between this model and the HD33, which seems to have acceptable lag for gaming. Has anyone made detailed measurements yet? Thanks for all who have shared impressions so far; I'm reading with great interest.
post #640 of 8485
I dont have a CRT tv to do any testing, but I would say it isnt an issue. It is certainly faster than my LCD Tv, My LCOS tv both in game mode. My guess, after having played and reading a TON on other projectos input lag, is that it is about the same as the hd33, in ~35ms range. I too look forward to someone that can test it, or instructions on how to test it without a TV.

Also, since you need to be in 720p to do 3d on black ops, why not just get an optoma 750e? marketed as 0 input lag. I compromised to have 1080p movies and 3d.....I think its worth one frame of lag smile.gif
post #641 of 8485
Someone measured it a few pages back, average was 50 ms
post #642 of 8485
I had a chance to spend a few hours with this projector last night. Many thanks to Kelvin also an AVS member who invited me over for the unboxing at his home. Both Kelvin and I have had many LCD units and I currently own a JVC so this was our first real test with a DLP home theater projector. Kelvin has a beautiful home theater setup, all sound treated and is using a 106" Dalite High power screen. We tested mostly 3d with bluray iso's and also Black Ops 2 via xbox 360.

We were using a temporary setup projecting off of his couch, the lens shift is very limited and adjusted by using a screwdriver (first I've seen of that). First impressions was a very bright, punchy, sharp image. Did a quick eyeballing of contrast and brightness and brought the sharpness setting down and then got right into 3d. My experience with 3d in the theaters has been limited, I saw Harry Potter last year and left unimpressed. I do however own a LG passive 55" 3d tv and although I do enjoy the odd bit of 3d on it I find the screen too small to be satisfying. I was lucky enough to spend a few hours watching the new Sony HW50es at another member's home a few weeks ago.

This projector does 3d very well. In my opinion much better than the Sony. I believe that LCD/LCOS technology just isn't there yet to do convincing 3d. This little Benq puts up a beautiful 3d image. No ghosting, no flickering, panning is smooth and it is plenty bright. We watched a few scenes from Avatar, Titanic,Hugo,Tangled and I believe the Avengers and I was astounded by the image. Black ops2 was also very good. Much, much better than my LG passive panel.

Contrast and black levels is certainly not on par with my projector but it is by no means a slouch.

So, my pros and cons

Pros: cheap
bright
excellent 3d
very sharp
handles motion very well

Cons: Lens shift is pretty limited
contrast and black levels are no match for my current projector JVC HD250
a little noisy but not objectionable
light leakage from the front
this particular unit had a small dust blob visible in the light path
unfortunately didn't play any of my 3D HSBS files
I did notice the odd rainbow

If it goes back on sale after Xmas I will definitely be picking one up as a 3d, gaming,sports unit to add to my JVC. At $1000 its hard to go wrong.

I envy you guys. UPS is still holding mine hostage. NCIX has been working with me and did end up paying the brokerage fee. UPS still won't release it until they get money from me. If it doesn't end up getting sent back to Canada. If I do get it soon I will post my thoughts. I am new to projectors but have had a 63" TV for over 2 years.

If so, could you give a quick note on the relative black levels? That was my only complaint (and to me it's a minor complaint), about the W1000. However my W1000 recently failed, so I'm thinking about getting this projector as a replacement.
Thanks.

I'm gonna answer my own question!! Ordered yesterday, and should have it mid next week. This is in Australia. Then I take my first holiday to NY a few days later... frown.gif I mean, smile.gif

Anyway, I'm super keen to give it a try. Really looking forward to it, and I expect the picture to be noticeably better than my old W1000.

If I do get it suppos and m and my thoughts. new new 2 projectors but not 3d

I think I am in the same boat. It was held in Seattle for 1 week, and now they may ask me for brokerage fee when I hope they deliver it on Monday. I wish I payed 6$ more for FedEx 3-days delivery option.
post #647 of 8485
The thread is about the newly released W1070, not a theoretical comparison. Instead of filling this thread up with what ifs and such versus your model, why not start a new one? It's aggravating having to filter through your issues with your model when I'm trying to decide if I want to purchase the W1070, which I thought thread was about, as per the title.

Ah whatever, I'm gonna have a beer and relax.

$35.00 shipping for a $15.00 mount? Anyone have any other options?
post #656 of 8485
I had been playing with my w1070 for 2 days and have few questions. (It's my first projector also 3D in my life so I don't know where to start)

1. smart eco mode
Is this suppose to be most power saving mode? I see there's economic, normal, smart eco.
Economic seems most dim in brightness but I don't see any differance between normal and smart eco mode. Does it save more power & lamp life than economic? I also remember people saying noise about smart eco but noise level seems all the same in all 3 modes. It's seems quiet, doesn't bother at all.

2.color and tint
I can't make any changes for both when I go to option menu and also nothing happens when I press them on the remote.

3. ISF and baud rate & quick cooling What are they???
isf needs password and baud rate, I didn't see any differance changing it and quick cooling? Right front side of projector gets really hot. Do I need quick cooling on?

4. Sceen
I didn't buy a screen yet because I wanted 150" 16:9 so I had to make sure it will be possible or not so I had been testing it on my table in front of sofa and I was able to get 120-130" so If I set the projector behind sofa I'l be able to get 150" without any problem. Picture quality seems pretty good shooting on the wall, is there night & day differance between wall vs screen? My loft has concrete walls & ceilings so It seems kinda hard to install(drilling etc) since I'm not a handy guy so I'm thinking "Do I really need it?" Ofcourse I'll get the screen for sure if there is a huge differance in image quality. If so, does any one can recommend me a screen installer in down town Los Angeles area?

5.Calibration
Is there any particular calibration tool for this projector?( never done any calibration in my life) or anyone can share me how their best settings are?

6. watching tv on w1070
Everything is connected to my onkyo receiver (xbox,ps3,wii etc). I only watch tv for news in the morning before I go to work & evening when I'm back so I have basic cable service instead of digital cable. I used to connect coax cable to my tv directly but my onkyo can't do that. What do I need to watch live basic cable tv with this projector for my situation? Analog to digital converter box will work?

I have bunch of more questions (3d etc)but I think that's all I need to know for now. Sorry for that I'm only asking questions instead of reviewing. I'm a completely newbie to projectors so I'm not able to make any prediction about how w1070 performs but I'm loving it so far over my 52" LG lcd TV. Hope every one is enjoying theirs too.

Can you tell me what kind of filter you got? I'm considering an ND2 but have no idea what size/type to get.


Just had a family screening tonight everyone loved the projector. Glasses were comfortable for everyone and no eye strain or crosstalk.
3D effects were quite good, picture was excellent. After I found the home theatre mode on the BD player black levels were quite good in 3d normal lamp.
(room was completely dark but walls are white)

I found the fan noise about the same or less than my old optoma hd70 but high altitude mode is extremely loud.
We're only 4000 feet but my old projector would overheat sometimes so I would leave it on but will have to chance it off with this one.
Very happy with my purchase!

You could build your own, the projector is very light. You can make it out of wood.

Another option. And probably a better mount for about the same price once you have the monoprice one shipped.
