BenQ W1070 3D DLP Projector

Sound & Vision Magazine
28 June 2013
  • Excerpt: 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, has built-in audio with grim but usable mono sound, is equipped with a “digital zoom” that magnifies the image within the frame set by the standard zoom control (just the thing for a close examination of that quarterly...

BenQ W1070 Projector

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
1 May 2013
  • Summary: 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, though if you can position the W1070 in your room fine, there is a good chance you won't really notice the uniformity issues. It has a few flaws, but none are deal breakers to me.

  • Conclusion: 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 above-average performance make it a candidate for rooms where there may be some ambient light concerns (think media rooms). The fact that it's so small, eco-friendly and sold just about everywhere only sweetens the deal.

Review: BenQ W1070 3D DLP Projector

Sound & Vision Magazine
17 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Let’s go over some of the numbers here: 1080p, 3D, $1,000. Pretty solid specs and pricing for flat-panel TV, except ... this is no flat-panel. BenQ’s W1070 is, as you have probably deduced, a projector.

BenQ W1070 projector throws impressive pictures for a small price tag

CNET
1 March 2013
  • Summary: If you want a huge, good-looking image for a little money, few come close to the BenQ W1070 projector.
  • Pros: The BenQ W1070 offers very good picture quality for the price, including respectable black levels and excellent color accuracy. 3D playback is excellent.
  • Cons: 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.

  • Conclusion: 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 least expensive projectors with visibly better blacks is the $1599 Acer and BenQ’s 2D only, W6000, (the 3 year old 2D predecessor to the W7000), which is still available.
  • 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 b...
