BenQ W1070 Review
By Chris Heinonen on
Last year I reviewed the BenQ W7000 DLP projector and was blown away by the quality of 3D image that it presented. Bright, detailed, and lacking in almost all crosstalk or ghosting, it was easily the best 3D I had seen in the home at an affordable price. That projector was very reasonably priced at $2,000 as well, so it was pretty surprising to see that BenQ had a new model, the W1070, at CES that they said offered that same 3D performance.
The W1070 is a small little projector, but when it comes to 3D, it really throws its weight around. Brighter than almost anything else, with no artifacting or crosstalk that I could see, and some of the best 3D images that anyone out there can do. It proved itself to be no slouch in 2D either, with a full CMS system and the ability to calibrate to a reasonably accurate image while putting out around 1700 lumens at the same time. It’s small, but it’s big and bright when it’s running.
You can head over to Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity to read my full BenQ W1070 review to see what else I discovered in my time with it, as it really is a tremendous projector value out there on the market today.
Now that you have the Bodnar input lag tester, do you ever plan to do input lag tests for projectors (as you do for tvs / monitors) ?
This would be quite useful if possible! Or doesn’t it work for projectors?

I do it for projectors and it works fine, though is a bit harder to do. I’ll do it for everything going forward since it matters to a lot of readers. Not to me so much, but to others.
