BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$ - Page 27

post #781 of 8508
All I can say is that I thought that it was great. This is only my second projector (my last was an infocus in76 which I had for 6 years) so anything would be an improvement but I work in TV so I see quite a lot of HD stuff and this is better than I imagined, I did take a gamble buying it before there were any reviews but, for me anyway, it has paid off. I was watching a SD copy of The Rise of the Guardians (a legal preview copy!) and some of that looked as good as HD from 12 feet,,,

I'm sorry, was it a statement or a question? Also, did W1070 take a big hit on brightness after this calibration?

So if you want one maybe hold off and see if VisualApex will do a buy on them and give us a good price.

I'm interested!

I'm inerested as well.
post #785 of 8508
Question for those who have experience with projectors:

Is it normal for the overall brightness to change with a higher percentage of brighter content?
What I mean is, if I have a black background on my PC and I expand a small (white) window
to use more of the screen, does the overall screen start to appear washed out a bit? Almost
like what happens on LED TV's with auto dimming. Further, is it different based on the type of
projector? (ie: 3LCD, LCOS, DLP, etc). It's mainly noticeable with white screens (I think it's called
white crush from what I remember). Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

Don't think you are going to "power-buy" yourselves any better than that.

Also on for $849.99 at Memory Express.

Thanks! This is a big pricematch opportunity for me at BB! Just hope there's stock left on the 27th since BB won't price match boxing day prices.
Wish I knew how this projector compared to the epson 3020 but even at the boxing day price of $1249 for the epson compared to my original $949
cost, that's $300 more. Granted, though, epson does give you 3D glasses.

I don't see in on NCIX US

Ordered $905.98 USD using FedEx Express Saver USA biggrin.gif Can't wait!!!

is this the model with the lens shift?
post #790 of 8508
Yes, but it is useless if you want to use HP screen, or place it on a shelf somewhere behind you. Because of limited percentage (we still don't know exactly # of percentage btw) of lens shift you can shift image vertically just a bit.
And no horizontal lens shift.

I just need it for correcting a 11" offset

Kraine, you say the 3D picture needs some work, but have you seen other entry-level 3D DLP projectors (like the Acers or Optoma GT series) to offer a comparison? I dipped my toe in the 3D waters with an Optoma GT700, and I'm pretty impressed for $600. But, I'm looking to upgrade to full hd 3D and better contrast soon.... was hoping something like the W1070 would be it.

I would like more information on this problem.

What happens with fast moving objects??

My current projector get lines on the edges..

I also would like a comparison with the Epson 3020 as i have been considering this unit as well.

Check the fine print on their Return policy...NCIX.com offers a 15-day Satisfaction Guarantee on many items that we sell. But read this... Satisfaction Guarantee excludes CRT monitors, LCD monitors, netbooks, notebook computers, mobile PCs, mobile phones, handhelds, PDAs, digital cameras (and accessories), projectors (and accessories), so it looks like if you buy it you own it, Even if it doesn't work out for you. Only returnable if DOA. Better wait for Amazon or a better US supplier with more purchaser friendly retailer. That price is tempting but if it doesn't work in my installation or I don't like the picture quality you are stuck with it.

Will the 1080st short throw be available in the U.S.?
post #798 of 8508
I haven't detected any motion problems on mine.

You are never going to see detail in fast moving objects in movies shot at 24 fps. You shouldn't have any issues with anything shot at 60fps.

if this BenQ W1070 have any motion smoothing like acer h9500BD in which it called acumotion then u can see all the detail in fast moving that shot in 24fps.

Could this really get the price lower?

That is a shame... would be nice to have glasses shared between this and an LCD...

hi there
i just fired up my brand new Benq W1070 for the first time yesterday and i'm quite impressed.
i have one thing really scaring me at the moment though, when i power off, i press the power button once and then once again like you are suppose to but the cooling cycle does not start.
it just shutdowns and goes into standby,any help would be greatly appreciated as this is my first projector
many thanks..
post #804 of 8508
For chris8690:
when you turn off the projector it automatically goes into stand-by mode and the lamp cooling fan will continue to run for a while ... will remain in stand-by mode as described in the manual tongue.gif
...
Has anyone ever had problems with synchronization with PC via hdmi?
Often I get the message at the bottom right "source searching ..." ... at first I thought it was ARC bothered but now with the ARC OFF returns the phenomenon especially with fullHD resolution 60Hz and when i change it to 50Hz synchronization remains stable.
I suppose this is caused by the fact that in my video card the only output is DVI and i use a switch DVI-HDMI.
I look forward to any confirmation or denial ... thanks

Talked to Benq today. Asked about the availability of w1080st here in the US. They said first week of Janurary. When I hung up I wondered if he was thinking w1070? I do believe some of you are already getting the 1070 here in the US?
post #806 of 8508
With the price at $850 right now Im really dying to see Art's review of this projector!
post #807 of 8508
Me too. I've only a few hours left on my old projector bulb, & hoping to read his review of this before I run out of time on it so I know which direction to go for my next projector.
post #808 of 8508
I noticed that there are a few Acer 5360 owners here. My only question is what is the brigtness in 3D mode compared to the Acer. I'm not concerned about sharpness, or resolution, etc. as find all that very acceptable on the Acer in 3D mode. The brightness i the real killer in 3D. The glasses kill 75% of the light it seems. Even thought Acer is one of brighter 3D PJs, seems its never enough for certain darkly filmed 3d movies...
post #809 of 8508
I've just ordered the W1070 from NCIX based on the few reviews I could see, for $996 delivered incl 13% Ontario tax and express RMA/replacement/insurance, ($25-just in case). Keeping my fingers crossed smile.gif Would be nice to see a detailed review but its a brand new model and I decided to go for it instead of the HC8350 (an older model) that I was thinking of buying from across the border (US). I have no use for 3D but it doesn't hurt to have it in this price. Am pairing it with 120" Elite Screen pull down screen. More later once I receive it!!!

Not really sure how to comment about this, I have my plasma on with a cloned display watching the same image on both in movies to compare, and for sure the plasma is better but the motion is great on the PJ, and for the overall size/experience it's no contest. I barely watch my plasma any more. Gonna need burn through bulbs faster than I imagined. There's a 2nd hand lens place downstairs from my loft that sells anamorphic lenses, I might have to pick one up with my next tax return or perhaps sooner.

3D on Prometheus was OK, but the movie was quite dark. Disney / Pixar movies in 3D absolutely rock, my family watched Tangled with the kids and all I heard from the other room was oohs and ahhs. IMAX Under the Sea is a good real life colourful one. Tron 3D looks sick at the opening sequence. I can't say I would enjoy watching too many really dark 3D movies on this as the cheap-o glasses make it a bit too dark for my liking (even in torch mode). But in bright material it's absolutely stunning and incredible. I wish I'd ordered 6 pairs of these Sainsonics rather than 4. All my friends want weekly movie nights at my loft now. weee heee

buy this one guys, can't go wrong at 850

too bad it can't do 1080p 60hz in 3D but I'm looking forward to trying 1080p 30hz with Batman Arkham City ...right now in fact. it was on special on steam and a friend gift sent it to me after we played his copy on my ps3 in 3D. It is SO cool in 3D. Uncharted 3 was really neat too, but the 3D was lower res due to the limits of the console's gfx chip. Silly consoles. PS4 will rock though. hope they have the presence of mind to allow you to customize the 3D settings more than they do now. (like refresh rate and resolution and aspect ratio)
