Then there's the 3D DLP Link shutter glasses. Good luck finding those. While BenQ is very accommodating and customer friendly, THEY don't even have the glasses. So - better secure those first.
The W7000 presents a beautiful sharp - clear and bright picture. You will need to do some color adjustment. There are some online reviews that give you suggested RGB settings and they really get the picture looking good. I can't comment on the 3D - still awaiting some glasses I found in Penn. For the price, it's an excellent performer - in 2D anyway. 3D looks bright but .......... we shall see.
Look at the reviews from Home theater magazines online, they rate the 3D 5 stars and it is the best they have seen under 30k. I have it paired with a Sony BD590 3D Blu Ray player and True Depth 3D glasses. I cannot rate this high enough.
My only disappointment is the 1 year warranty which I bought a SqaureTrade 3 year extended warranty. Get it, you won't be disappointed.
Pros and cons:
1. 2D with a high def signal looks outstanding, *See edit below)however, I don't care much for the 1080i or 720p content. I haven't seen much on the Dish HD channels that even comes close to bluray, in fact, I've been a little disgusted with the picture quality.
2. 3D looks wonderful, plenty of brightness, and no issues what so ever. I did go with the True Depth 3d DLP link glasses.
3. Installation was very easy, and the lens shift is a true lifesaver. I don't think that I would ever buy a projector without it.
4. Menus are easy to work with, and calibration was simple enough.
5. Lag seems more than tolerable
1. Auto Iris. I have noticed a very high pitched noise with the iris, it doesn't bug me much, and I end up tuning it out, but it is loud enough to hear over medium volumes.
2. Saved menu. When you unplug the projector for a decent amount of time, you will lose your config settings, so make sure that you write them down.
3. Menu adjustments. There are some items in the menu that have a significant change in appearance between two settings. I wish that there were more incremental steps in between some of the menu item settings.
4. 3d switching can be a little monotonous, a drop down or selection menu would have helped considerably.
Overall I am very impressed. I was a little concerned going from the Plasma, LCD, DLP tech to a projector, but I couldn't be happier. a decent projector can put out an amazing picture, and you just can't replace the size and price advantage. For the price of this projector, you get features that would normally cost a lot more, and there aren't any significant draw backs. Sure the blacks aren't the greatest, but the picture is beautiful. I would highly recommend this projector, and for the price, I think it's as good as it gets.
EDIT: Doing some research into the picture quality issues, this could be a problem with the Dish Hopper and Joey set up. I'll investigate more and update later.
9/18/12 Edit: I have done a few things to test the clarity issue. I bought a power conditioner to alleviate the spikes from the fridge near by and coincidentally that also helped with some of the fuzz. I have also done some testing with the Hopper/Joey and have concluded that the issue is with them and not the projector. Some channels look fantastic, and some don't. I plan to switch the Hopper with the Joey, and I'm confident that will help. I have went ahead and upped my rating to 5 stars. The menu complaints and the high pitch iris aren't enough to deduct from this fantastic piece or hardware.
End Summary: I am still very happy with this machine, and hopefully will work through my issues with the Hopper/Joey set up here soon. I literally looked at every receiver before buying the Benq W7000, and I can say with confidence that for the money, this is as good as it gets. I know that the only worries are with the black levels, and while they aren't inky, they are still very good. If your looking for a mid-range projector with a few high end features and cheaper then the competition with a beautiful picture and top rated 3D then this one is for you.
I have now put a ton of hours into this thing and I'm still loving it. There are however a few issues that have come up. First being focus. The machine seems to come out of focus at random times, not sure if it's due to the monster bass, or just gravity. Adjusting it is no issue, just a minor annoyance being that I usually require help due to my poor eyesight. The second is with the 3D. Sometimes I get a vertical line in the middle of the screen and both halfs look distinguishably different. The only fix I have found it to toggle brilliant color once. This seems random, and doesn't matter if BC starts on or off.
Other then that, I have been thoroughly enjoying this machine.
Just a few last things to note that might help some. After a year or so the picture still looks awesome, however I have resolved one issue and found another. I think I have found the focus issue, and it has to do with the lamp warming up. I used to align every time because the focus was either off at the beginning or the end, but finally I realized that I just need to let it warm up and set it once. This does make things look out of focus at boot up, so I usually go start the projector a bit before actually using it. This has fixed my focus issue. The other issue I have run into is that the iris gets stuck every now and then. In doing some research, others have just disabled Dynamic Blacks, but I have been able to get by with just restarting the machine. This has so far only happened twice.
Those that have or have had a projector, I can't tell you much except to compare it to my ax200u. It is a definite step up. Although it is said that black level is not a strong quality for this projector, it is noticeably better than the ax200u. The step up from 720p to 1080p is also a big jump. Not as noticeable on DVD, but blu ray material is much better.
