Sincere thanks and gratitude to ALL of the guys who have contributed to this thread!
A success story: I purchased the Benq W1080ST, the short-throw variant of the W1070 a few days ago. Thanks to this great community of wizards and enthusiasts, I've been able to troubleshoot and solve EVERY single issue I've been curious about with this machine. It's been a great experience. With a little luck and care, I'm hoping for many trouble free hours of enjoyment.
I've updated my firmware to the latest version (and probably voided my warrany doing so, oh well) but I'm glad to say I've got a beautiful, crisp and colorful 1080P image to project to my heart's content -- and finally, 3D is working with my PS3! Can't wait to dive into 3D Blu-Rays!
So once again, although I can't recall the names of the every author of every helpful post I've come across - if you've ever answered a question in this thread - know your efforts have been appreciated VERY much.
Just in case anyone is looking, Amazon has the BenQ W1070 for $799 right now. I think it just changed prices today.
