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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
