      guys, I remember you saying a while back you'd be producing more videos, this doesnt seem to be happening and I cant help feeling this is reflected in your relatively low you tube subscriptions, are you going to step this up at all, maybe get someone in just to do videos for youtube?

      Yes, this is happening, but it requires a lot of work behind the scenes to get up and running. I have around 10 review videos all in various stages of production as we speak and almost at the stage where the workflow means there will be a steady stream of videos appearing. It's also a team of one.

      spot on with Wandering earth, sets and effects were top notch, just let down with editing and acting. A decent 6.5/10 scifi

      @Steve Withers - "Silence Mode" on the BenQ projectors just switches of the pixel shift, so the trade-off is that you only get a 1080p image.

      From the W2700 manual:

      "Minimizes the acoustic noise. It is suitable for the need of watching movies that requires an ultra-quiet environment so that you won't be disturbed by the noise of the projector. When this mode is used, the following menu functions will be automatically changed to the designated settings and grayed out. • Off: To turn on XPR (The display resolution will be 3840 x 2160.) • On: To turn off XPR (The display resolution will be 1920 x 1080.)"

      You seem to be forgetting that in post #5 Mr Hinton had said:
      Considering that we are getting steady stream of AV and film reviews on this site with no effort on our part (not to mention absolutely FREE), I think that we should be damned grateful. I'm sure that Mr Hinton will do the Samsung review when he can. Give the man a break!

      I had to check out the new Apple app and airplay, which appeared just as I was finishing the video review, to see if it is worth talking about or if it causes any issues. The review will be up tomorrow now.

      Thanks, that was ultimately the conclusion I came to, although it would have been quicker and easier if I'd just looked in the manual!
