Summary: I received my BenQ W7000 on 3/26/13. I bought it strictly to watch 3D Blu-ray movies. I watch 2D movies on my Sony VPL-VW100. I paired the BenQ with a Oppo BDP-103 3D ready Blu-ray player. What i like the most about the BenQ is the brilliant colors and depth in the 3D mode.
Summary: The overall result has seemed pretty good, but honestly expected a little more. The brightness level 2D is good for a screen size of between 100 and 127 inches. Beyond this size might need to adjust the image away from the optimal calibration (very best).
Summary: I have owned this BenQ W7000 projector for several months now. Right out of the box, I was impressed with the projector; and with some minor calibration the picture quality is really something to see. All I can say is that it's like being at the movies but in the comfort of your own home.
Summary: Saying this is a good projector doesn't tell you much if you've never experienced a home theater projector. I you're thinking of purchasing one, do some research as it's not as simple as just buying a TV.
Summary: I have been using the projector now for several months. The first thing I watched on it was the 3D version of Hugo. I was blown away at just how good the 3D image looked. It was the general consensus of family members that this was true.
Summary: This was a "refurbished" item, and as such had 49 hrs. of use prior to my purchase. Evidently it was returned by the original buyer for whatever reason, but I have so far not found any negative features and was purchased at a considerable discount from the MSRP.
Summary: If you choose to buy from LCD Sales, please be alerted that the units are shipped to Latin America and then redistributed in Orlando, Fla. This negates the warranty. They are very prompt and accommodating but they leave that piece out of the small print. You might want to pay $50 more.
