  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    The title says it all, I can get refurbished w1500 for $1250 or new w1070 for $899. The price difference is negligible to me, which one is the better machine for mostly watching 2d movies in the environment with variable ambient light amount (family room, some light during day time, dark at...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    So I have an epson 8100 about 15' from a 100" screen. I want to turn my room and go for a 120" screen. Problem is, That puts me down to about a 12' throw. I'd also like to replace my projector with the brightest/best projector for I like to watch a lot of sports with some ambient light...

  5. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hello all. I'm having a bit of a dilemma, and I'd love some advice. I'm currently on my second Epson 8350, having replaced the first due to the ever annoying dust blob problems. The problem is back again despite my best and proper maintenance efforts, and this time I'd like to move away from...

    Have an old Sony VPL hs60 at home and looking to upgrade, I have been happy with the Sony but need some more lumens of which it only has 1200 and using a replacement bulb probably not even getting that. I have a budget of around $1500 and am looking at the benq W1500 or the epson power lite...

     What an awesome little projector!  100x better than my replacement Sharp Vision xv-z10000.  Brightness is perfect as are the colors.  Have not tried the wireless hdmi yet or 3d.   Let me know if I can answer anyone's questions about this projector.   -Blake
  8. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi I was just wondering if any one might have an idea on how many fl are needed to view 3d on a 130" 1 gain screen. I was originally going with a w7000 then I realised that I would need a shorter throw projector to use the xbox one (kinect will cast shadows) that my son is buying so now im...

     Anyone know if/when the Optoma HD91 will be available in the US, and if so, how much?   Not sure I want to wait on this one, or go ahead and purchase the Benq w1500.   -Blake
  10. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I've decided it's time for my Panasonic PT-AX200U to be retired. It needs another light bulb so I think that's good enough reason to upgrade. I need a short throw. The current project is about 13 feet from the wall. Ceiling is 7 feet tall. I'm in a basement with no windows. Projector will be...
  11. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have an option to buy a W1070 or a W7000 refurb for the same price, placement is not an issue and its a fairly light controlled room. I would like to be able to manually change the zoom from 16:9 to 2.35 so I'm leaning towards the 7000. Is there anyone out there that has a 7000 that could...
  12. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    Hey guys ... So this thread is a continuation of my previous one, in which the unanimous vote was to get 2 projectors, for the best 2D and 3D, while remaining under $4000 or so, instead of getting something like Epson 5030, for fulling both roles, because then the result is not *very* good ...

     I have Benq w1500 and it came with WHDI device that allows me to watch HD contents wirelessly, which I been loving, as it's one less cable. But I just learned that I cannot watch 3d contents through WHDI.   So now I'm wondering if it's possible to use the sub HDMI. I could connect HDMI...
  14. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Much of this is in another thread but I'm not sure the experts like coderguy and others will see it. I have a W1500 on order at 12-1300 but with black levels at pretty iffy levels, I'm tempted to go with one of the close out Mits units around the same price. 3D is important but with a small...
  15. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
     So I know that Mitsu is getting out of the projector market, and I'm seeing what look like some pretty good deals for them (like the HC8000 ~$1500).  I'm assuming places are just clearing these out since Mitsu is done.  Is that a good deal?  I had been looking at a lot of the DLPs in the...
  16. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I am wondering if its worth it to spend extra on w1500, and what does that get me.... Benq w1500 with two 3D glasses is on sale for $1499 at Costco Canada. That is $450 off their regular price of $1950 for this package. Amazon has just the w1500 (without 3D glasses) listed for $1600...

    Having a house built that will not be complete until March. Want to buy a PJ and screen before the end of the year for a particular reason. So, going off my plans, the room is 15 wide and 21 feet long. The north and south walls slant inward at around 6 feet so I have to mount the screen on the...

    I am about to pull the trigger on my very first projector. I am going to try to provide as much pertinent information to help with the decision. First and foremost, I have narrowed my choices to the following projectors; A. Epson 3020 B. BenQ W1500 C. Panasonic PT-AR100U There is...

    I am replacing my original home theater projector , a sanyo plv-z3 that I have had for many years. I expect that the technology has improved greatly over the years. I want to get a significant upgrade and include 3D but am wondering how much money one has to spend to get something significantly...
  20. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi, As my topic says I'm about to buy my first projector. I've been reading a ton of reviews etc, but I can't seem to settle my mind on which one I should buy. I'm looking for a projector somewhere between 800-2000$. I've been thinking about buying one of those: BenQ W1070 BenQ W1500...
