BenQ W1070 Projector: Pros and Cons

BenQ W1070 Projector: Pros

  • Brightest 2D and 3D projector when calibrated that we've reviewed to date under $2,000
  • For those rainbow sensitive, minimal rainbows - excellent for the price!
  • Respectable blacks on dark scenes
  • Handles very large screens effortly for 2D viewing.
  • Does a decent job on medium to large sized screens for 3D
  • Downright Excellent overall color! (calibrated, just very good out of the box)
  • Skin tones are also impressively good post calibration, and good right out of the box
  • Calibrates very easily - it's most of the way there to begin with
  • Excellent shadow detail
  • Excellent lamp life (3500 hours/6000 hours)
  • HDMI 1.4a inputs (2) support for Blu-ray 3D content
  • 10 watt speaker provide respectable audio when not hooked up to a surround sound system, great out back for a summer festival, or in any room for a quick setup
  • Has lens shift - rare in a low cost DLP (limited amount of shift, but very useful)
  • Audio output to feed another sound system
  • Excellent value proposition!

BenQ W1070 Projector: Cons

  • Black level performance is good for the price but no match for serious "ultra high contrast" projectors
  • 3D glasses could be a bit lighter and more comfortable (though not bad)
  • Only front foot and one rear foot are adjustable, having both rear adjustable would simplify for table top setups - that's a drag, for a "home entertainment" projector
  • 1 year warranty could be longer (but is typical for the price)
  • Could be quieter in full power mode, though typical for a home "entertainment" projector, better than most
  • Lacks CFI - creative frame interpolation - which is nice for sports.  However so far, no projectors near its price have CFI

Good viewing!
