BenQ W1070 Projector

 

While the BenQ W1070 has some issues, almost all of them are the things you need to do to bring out a projector at the $1,000 price point. Some light drop-off at the corners and some more placement restrictions are what you will have to deal with,...

BenQ W1070

 

The BenQ W1070 3D home entertainment projector is bright enough to stand up to the typical light in a family room.

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.

Anyone who sees rainbow artifacts easily, or worries that someone else may be bothered by them, is well advised to stay away from the BenQ W1070 and focus on LCD projectors, like the 2D Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 8350 or the more expensive 3D Editors'...

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...

Wow!  The BenQ W1070 isn’t an alternative (when it comes to black level performance) to ultra-high-contrast projectors like the Epson 5020UB, Panasonic PT-AE8000U, or Sony VPL-HW50ES.  But those are mostly $3000 range projectors.  To my best guess, the...
