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.
great picture, but it has a high pitched whistle sound that comes from it

Summary: I replaced my first one within a couple of days, the second one worked great for around 200 hours, now it has the same high pitches whistle sound (not too loud, but annoying as heck). No problem if watching a loud movie, but when watching quiet scenes or simply something without the volume turned up high, it makes it difficult to enjoy. Picture is AWESOME.
Benq w7000 fails and had to be returned for a new item
24 January 2013
Summary: This projector is hit or miss. The one I had went to red power and red lamp mode and did not work at all. I have a very uncomfortable feeling about the purchase. I know others have had similar stories and even one other reviewer on Amazon. Benq agreed to send me a new one and I am hoping for better results. No matter how good the 3d or picture, it all means nothing if this things does not hold up!
Summary: UPDATE: After 50h of operation my unit froze. After power cycling the unit it will run for a few minutes and then the picture will either freeze or become corrupted and freeze. Exchanging with the retailer, so we'll see how the next one does. Major pain. This was my upgrade from an older 720p 1000 lumen Mitsubishi projector. This projector is way brighter, as expected from the specs. The picture out of the box is good with deep colors.
Summary: This projector is breath taking in 2D and 3D. Amazing picture quality. Very little adjustment needed. The movies look awesome and the movies in 3D are perfection. I am using the Ultraclear DLP Link glasses with this projector and are great. Update on my first review of the BenQ W7000: Yes is a great projector in image and 3D display, BUT AS ADVERTISED IS NOT "PANAMORPH READY OR CAPABLE (ANAMORPHIC LENS PROJECTION) When projecting 3D material, the projector is not able to...
Summary: Köpte denna på Komplett under deras Black Friday i November. Intresset var stort, men den kom iaf efter tre veckor från det att jag beställde den. Uppgraderar från 720p, en Benq PE8720 från 2005. Köpte den begagnad i slutet av 2007. En riktig "BEST" på sin tid, stor, tung med både motoriserad zoom och lensshift. Fin bild med DarkChip3, men ljussvag.
