     Hi,   I have a Benq W5000 which I think is a great projector, I can't complain on anything really. But now I have been offered a Benq W1300 for a very good price and I don't know if it will be worth it. I am not interested in 3D and I guess the W1300 will be a little louder, but will the...
  2. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
     After a lot of deliberation, I just placed an order for a BenQ W1070.  Was confident with my decision until I read this excerpt from a shootout review between the W1070 and W5000   "This extra light output is most useful when watching 3D movies, where the W1500 will be able to support larger...

    I am wrestling with adding a JVC X35 or Sony HW55ES. Have Benq W5000 as backup projector to Optoma HD3300. The 3300 throws a bright detailed 2D/3D picture. Will I see a large improvement in picture quality if I replace my BenQ with an X35 or HW55ES? Tried the BenQ 1070 but 3D gave me headaches...

    Hi I have a Sharp XV-Z15000 projector for my Videotron PVR and for my Xbox. They are both plugged in via HDMI (about 35 feet long good quality cable running through the ceiling). Recently, I lost input signal via HDMI input on the projector. I switched the PVR and Xbox from Input 1 and 2 on...

    I first noticed it watching a film where characters faces in particular took on a strong brownish hue (also noticeable throughout the whole image). But when I put the same disk in another day the problem was gone..... Then I played another disk another time and the prob was back (maybe...

    So, in my quest to rebuild my hometheater, this little debate arose, kinda.... If you had a CAVX MKII, would you shell out a possible 1,200 to 1,400 for the CineVista..... My PJ of choice at this point is the Sony HW50, projecting on a 100"x42" Seymour Center Stage XD AT...... ..... and the...
  7. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    I have spent so many hours on researching projectors that my eyes are sore from staring at my iPad. I currently have a Benq W5000, good, sharp, colorful but black levels stink. I'm upgrading because I really want a 3-D projector, I have a lot of 3-D blu-ray movies and two 3-D televisions. As...

    I am looking for a nice single chip DLP projector that uses the 0.95" DC3 chip. Besides the Planar PD8150, Sharp XV-Z20000, Runco LS-5, and the Benq W20000, what other units use this chip?

    While most electronics have panels to unscrew, this projector plastic casing is molded around the front lens assembly meaning then lens assembly most somehow come off. The projector focus ring twisted off, and with all the accessible screws removed the top panel casing will partially lift off...

    I am trying to open the cover on a Benq W5000 but I dont know how to do it. I have removed the small covers on the side and I have unscrewed the 9 screws that holds the top cover. I think I have to remove the focus ring but I am not sure.

    I'm just curious to see if anyone else on here is as crazy as me as far as purchases go? The unfortunate thing about anything visual is that you need to actually see it in person to really get an understanding of what the product is all about. I have to say that projectors are one of the hardest...
  12. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I own Benq W5000 for 2+ years, and it keeps shutting off by itself randomly. No particular pattern or logic in it; sometimes it works for few hours with no problem, and sometimes shuts off after 30 min. After I reboot it, it may work with no complains for another few hours; and may shut off...
  13. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    Picture below says it all, strangely enough this appeared as I glanced over at the screen cooking some dinner. One minute it's not there, next minute it is. It stays over any overlay the projector has, menus, signal dialogs, even the BenQ power-on loading screen. I've tried every input, powered...
