BenQ W1070 Projector

 

I'll be blunt: I don't like 3D. I've never been able to justify paying extra to see it in the theater, and at home it has always left me cold. Most implementations give me a headache almost instantly with their crosstalk-filled images and ghosting the...

BenQ W1070

 

The BenQ W1070 3D home entertainment projector offers high-quality 1080p video that's bright enough to stand up to ambient light, but it shows rainbow artifacts relatively easily.

Inexpensive. Works directly with HDMI 1.4a devices like Blu-ray players and cable TV for full 1080p 3D. Built-in speaker

Shows rainbow artifacts unusually often. Doesn't work with 120Hz DLP-link glasses for 3D; works with 144Hz glasses only

In some ways, the DLP-based BenQ W1070 is simply a brighter, more expensive version of the BenQ EP5920 ($835 street, 3.5 stars). In particular, both are home entertainment projectors, as opposed to home theater projectors. The differences between the...

If you think that "budget projector" means those under-powered, handheld pico projectors, then you should think again. Like most everything else in consumer electronics, serious, wall-filling home theater projectors continue to get cheaper and better...

The BenQ W1070 offers very good picture quality for the price, including respectable black levels and excellent color accuracy. 3D playback is excellent.

No 3D glasses are included, and they cost $99 each. Low-level shadow detail is crushed. With the 3D upgrades, the Epson 3020 could be a better option.

If you want a huge, good-looking image for a little money, few come close to the BenQ W1070 projector.

BenQ W1070 and W1080ST Projectors Preview

 

BenQ is attempting to set some new price barriers for home theater projectors. The new W1070 and W1080ST DLP projectors are priced at $1,099 and $1299 respectively.

BenQ W1070 3D DLP Projector

 

While our subject here is the W1070 home theater projector from BenQ, there's more than a little business projector DNA in its genes. How else to explain a single-chip DLP design that's a third the size and weight of most dedicated home theater models,...

After measuring and watching the BenQ for weeks, I returned to my current reference projector, last year’s $3,500 JVC DLA-X30 (Home Theater, May 2012). The JVC’s far superior blacks not only improved dark scenes dramatically, but its deeper contrast...

BenQ W1070 DLP Front Projector Reviewed

 

BenQ has made a name for itself in recent years as a more affordable option for consumers' home theaters. Andrew Robinson puts the BenQ W1070 to the test to see what it can really offer the consumer.

While not perfect, BenQ's W1070 single-chip 3D HD DLP projector is a great starting point for those considering getting into the front-projection game. Its sub-$1,000 retail price makes it obtainable for many, and its supreme brightness and...

BenQ W1070 review

 

This budget BenQ W1070 Full HD 3D projector is brilliant for games and movies but is it worth your hard-earned cash?

Outstanding value ; Massive 1080p images ; Brighter than Brian Cox

No 3D glasses provided ; Fan noise is high ; Not the deepest blacks

If you're after an easy-to-accommodate Full HD projector, this smart looking DLP model delivers. It packs a bright 2,000 lumens punch, dispensing 1080p images which ping with detail. While the W1070 is Full HD 3D capable, no Active Shutter glasses are...

BenQ W1070 review

 

The BenQ W1070 wears its chief attraction right out there on its price tag. For despite being a 3D-capable projector claiming decent-looking contrast ratio and brightness figures of 10,000:1 and 2,000 ANSI Lumens respectively, it costs a penny under...

Exceptional value; strong out of the box picture performance; ISF certified

Pictures are a touch noisy; dark 3D scenes lack a little depth; no 3D glasses included for free
