     The BenQ W1080ST has received very good reviews and sounds like it would fit my needs very well - with one exception - and that's a showstopper: The ST (Short Throw). I need a projector that can project a 92''/233cm image (80''/203cm wide) from a 12' 10'' distance (390 cm), and that simply...

  3. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Saw the BenQ w1080st for under $900 on Amazon and pulled the trigger. I had been coming from a Epson 8350 which I had been happy with for a while, but I never was a big fan of LCD projectors and I sit very close to my screen (1.1 SW) so I wanted to go 1080p DLP for my next projector. I also...

     Hello Guys,   I was following this thread for sometime, and I honestly believe as a 3d projector Benq is really GREAT for the money. I ll have a question for 3D enthusiasts on AVCHD 2.0 3D support of BENQ W1070. So as you guys know, Bluray 3D is limited with 1080/24p and 720/50-60p AND BE...

    What would be the recommended paint for active 3D? Any cheap and easy solution, or will a mix be necessary? I'm currently projecting on a grey wall with dents in it which I think looks great for 2D, but I almost only use my PJ (w1080st) for 3D and for that it's just too dark and I'd hope to...

     Hi everyone!   I've been a long time movie-enthusiast and I just love the experience of watching them on the big screen. The problem is; I'm still a student and I don't have a lot of money to spend. But that shouldn't get into the way of having a small home theatre, right? Right!   So me...

     Just wondering where you guys recommend to purchase? I read several people have had issues with this projector but I am limited to what I get due to a beam in the room. So I need the short throw. Who has the best customer service/return policy in case a problem should arise? Who has the best...

    I've been researching for projectors that would work in a low ceiling from about 9 ft. away from the screen. The screen must be 100". I've heard DLP has an overall better picture and better blacks which I would say is my first priority. The screen will be dropping in front of a Panny plasma...

     Good Morning All, I've recently become interested in the having my own home theatre and started off by purchasing a projector. I'm currently in school, so the budget is both very relevant and somewhat limited. Due to that, I was creeping the screen DIY forum in order to build my own...

     OK, we have some new parameters for our artist's still photo projection project that's mocked-up at  http://www.flickr .com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157640295538116/ .  The artist cares mostly about the colors showing up, not worried about having the "dark background" you see in the...

     So I need a projector for my 1954 Airstream travel trailer which we live in full time right now. We have a LCD screen in the rear bedroom for computer/blurray/PS3; but sometimes when the wife is asleep I am stuck up front with just the IPAD. We do not want to put another traditional screen up...
