      It works beautifully even on a rough wall and it's bright enough to watch during daytime. The speakers are terrible as expected with any projector, but with an apple TV and an airport express, I can connect to a pair of Audioengine 2 speakers wirelessly. Highly recommended!

      Comments about BenQ W1070 Full HD 1080p 3D DLP Home Entertainment Projector:

      This is my first projector and I have several 50"+ HDTV's (LED, LCD, Plasma) so I wasn't sure what to expect so went the "value route" with this projector. Holy cow was I impressed! Even before I painted the wall to be used as a screen, the picture was bright and vivid. I am shooting a 14' screen at a distance of about 13', and keystone correction is perfect for the angle I am shooting (ceiling).

      I could have easily spent 3 or 4 times what I paid and still not had a "high end" projector, and this thing is just great. I highly recommend to anyone thinking of exploring projection. The huge screen is simply breathtaking.

      Comments about BenQ W1070 Full HD 1080p 3D DLP Home Entertainment Projector:

      During my endless search online for a good projector the BenQ kept coming up but I was very concerned on the throw distance. I convinced myself I needed a short throw projector for a long time but after hours of research and throw calculators I finally accepted that I didn't need a short throw projector.
      At 7 feet I get an 86" diagonal image and Im sitting about 7 feet away so this thing looks massive. In fact I use the zoom lens to make it a bit smaller when I'm gaming on my PS3/PS4 just so I won't miss anything. This also makes a great space saver since I don't need a tv stand anymore.

      For a home theater projector in a low light situation the BenQ is a winner.

          I upgraded to this full HD/3D model from a 720p Epson. The Epson was just full of headaches. Burned through lamps like no one's business. Color was always so-so. As soon as I turned on this BenQ, I knew I made the right decision. It was the same price as the Epson was 2 yrs ago with full HD and 3D capabilities, and it gets stellar Cnet reviews. One of the first things we watch on it was The Dark Knight. Some of the city flyovers actually had me literally drop-jawed. So far so good on the lamp, but only had it a bit.

          Comments about BenQ W1070 Full HD 1080p 3D DLP Home Entertainment Projector:

          I am NOT a professional or have a lot of experience with home theater projectors, but I research a ton before buying something. I have a very tight budget, but really wanted a great picture especially on Blu-Ray.This DELIVERS! So far I have played it on an off white wall, and the picture is incredible, watching Blu-Ray movies, Uverse TV, and even streaming off of Amazon. I can't imagine how great it will be once I have my actual white screen mounted.I haven't tested the 3d yet. But I didn't get it for that anyway, so I'm not concerned even if that part doesn't deliver.Make sure you know the size of your room, and the screen size you want. Then check the manual (online) to ensure it will throw an image size from the distance you are looking for. The zoom doesn't do much.

              This is my first projector and so far I love it.The image quality surpassed my expectations.The one thing I was unaware of is how hot the unit gets. I used a temp gun and was reading 200+ F. Being new to projectors this was something I did not expect. The fan is audible.For under $ I would not hesitate to purchase.

                I purchased this projector as recommended by many folks on AVSforum. They claimed it was the best projector under $2K and I believe they were right. This is my first projector and I'm very impressed. I have it projecting onto a wall in my finished basement and the image out-of-the-box is everything I hoped for. I would highly recommend this projector to anyone planning to install this in a light-controlled environment. I'm not sure this is the best projector for a living room with windows, but in darker rooms, it's amazing.

                The only problem I found is that the fan noise is noticeable in quiet scenes (dialog in a drama, for example). I've not noticed the fan while watching SciFi or playing games on the PS3.

                A little steep in price for me but it's been fun. Projected on side of the house for home movie theater fun. There's others a bit cheaper but people say stick with the 1070 so I will. It's really not bad considering you can take it everywhere and it's 1080p.

                Bought this projector for a little home theater room in a house I'm building. When it went on sale I had to jump on it. So far I have only quickly hooked it up and watched a movie on the bedroom wall but I have to say it has a great picture (even just on the bare wall). So I am very pleased with this purchase and can't wait to get it fully set up. If anyone is looking for a great projector at a great price, this is probably the best out there.

                I bought this projector to set up my new media room. The image quality is simply outstanding!!! Playing Finding Nemo 3D was mind blowing; just like looking into a fantastic fish tank...

                The only "complaint" if you will is that the zoom factor is fairly limited. I had to install in in the middle of the room to keep it within 11' from my 106" screen (bigger screens / smaller rooms wouldn't be affected by this...)

                I definitely recommend this projector if you want high quality images, 3D or not. Can't beat the price at B&H!

                    I have only been using the projector for about a week, but I'm very satisfied so far. I'm projecting a 120" screen and it is bright enough to view with the lights on and still get a very good picture. Ambient light does wash out the picture a little on a white screen. I imagine a gray screen might work better in lit situations. It is not my intent to use this with the lights on though. Turning the lights off really makes the picture pop. The black levels and contrast improve greatly with the lights out. Standard mode is really good as a default, but I found that turning down the brightness provided better contrast and black levels. So far I am using the projector on a table and the lens shift has been very handy for positioning the projection higher on the wall. This option is normally not available in projectors at this price level. I have seen the DLP rainbow effect once when there was a very fast motion scene, but I haven't noticed it otherwise. The DLP rainbow seems rare enough that I would not consider spending twice as much to get a similar quality LCD projector just to avoid any potential rainbow issues. The picture quality is exceptional for the price level. I think this is the best bang for the buck projector.

                      Great and light weight projector. It gives a real feel of theater at home. Assuming the picture quality of video is good you will get a great projection.

                      Full selection of input types

                      Cons: Feels like it runs hotter than previous models we have used.

                      Installed in a media room in my new house. It was easy to install and features work well. The room is pretty dark, but even with multiple overhead lights on, the picture is still very good. Only minor complaint is the remote, which is kind of simple and not very easy to read. Solved that problem by adding the Harmony Smart Control! Watched 3D movies and they were great (glasses bought seperately, not included with projector)

                        Estoy muy contento con el proyector Benq w1070, la calidad de imagen es excelente tomando en cuenta el rango de precio en el que se encuentra, lo utilizo con una pantalla motorizada de 106 pulgadas, que se encuentra a 2,90 metros del proyector, el menú de funciones y control remoto son muy fáciles de entender y utilizar, mi recomendación es la de utilizarlo en modo de video standar.

                            I watch 4-5 films a week from the comfort of my living room. This projector does the job. Set-up is easy, image is sharp. The price is great for a projector with full HD and Blu-ray capabilities.

                            The projector produce a good 2D image quality( did not test 3D yet). It's bright, sharp, very little RBE almost didn't exist, fan noise is minimal and only notice in some quite scene of movies. I placed it on a table about 12.5-13fts from the screen and project 144" image. I gave 4 stars because my unit have a little problem with the color temperature; slightly blue on the right and red on the left. B&h's customer service is exellent, and they will replace my unit. Overall, this is a very good projector, and there are no competition for its price point.
