Summary: My BenQ W7000 is almost a year old now. Let me quickly tell the projector setup that I have at my home: The projector is hooked up to Onkyo HT-RC-460 AV receiver, Energy Take 5.1 speakers, Sony BluRay player. For 3D viewing I use True Depth 3D DLP glasses (120Hz), projector output is on 120" screen. The projector stands to its 2000 lumens of brightness and 50,000:1 contrast ratio. The picture detail is awesome, black level is good.
Summary: BenQ makes decent projectors and we have been happy with our BenQ with the exception of the reliability. Don't think that I will purchase another one. We have a W5000 which is the predecessor of the W7000 that is just over 4 years old. The system board has been replaced once already after the warranty period (at a cost of about $1,000) and has failed again. BenQ quoted us $200 to repair it the second time, but then alerted us that it cannot be fixed.
Summary: First of all I would like to say this is a nice projector and good 3d quality. the problem with me is that it lacks the 2D punch of the W6000. I think its because the W6000 has 25% more lumens. Now I have a real problem, my Dalite.1 gray 120-inch screen is a bit to dark for the W7000.I sold unfortunately my W6000 on E Bay for 1,320.00 but only had 582 hours and economy mode ISF night.
Summary: I spent about an hour playing around with this unit. I just couldn't get the brightness and details to be even comparable to my 2 years old LG CF181D. I found out that the unit was shipped with the old BenQ firmware that had brightness and black level issue. Good thing Amazon returns are simple and painless.
Summary: I like most people read reviews before making a purchase. and too like most people i don't have a ton of money. I was worried about the rainbow effect, the black levels . the sharpness, video gaming ... u name it. i also own a 60" Panasonic THX certified plasma TV and while there no comparison during daytime viewing at night the panny wins hands down ( i don't have a total black room). The size (110") more the more than makes up for the difference in deep black detail.
Summary: I bought this projector because of the success that I've had in the past with BenQ projectors. My first BenQ was a W10000 but it got hit by lightning. Then I went with the W6000 but I had been buying all of these 3D movies so I decided to go ahead and get the W7000 projector because it came highly recommended by Home Theater Magazine as one of the best projectors for 3D.

Summary: While the initial product is great and works well for a "in house home theater" the firmware itself is a bit troublesome and actually has to be sent to the company to upgrade rather than just downloading it. It is a good starter product from BenQ, but I would wait a couple of years until they have perfected the techonology.
