Welcome to the BenQ W7000 owners thread. I might be a bit lonely in here for a bit as its not yet available for sale in the UK. I just got mine imported from America. It was in Memphis yesterday and in my home today - well done FedEx! Pity my 3D glasses which I ordered 3 days ago within the UK still haven't arrived Opened it up, looks pretty sexy, quite light but then anything would compared to the JVC X3 it replaced which is built like a tank. Nice remote, I like the light button- stays on until you press it again. No manual, just a quick start guide and a full manual on CD. No 3D glasses included, maybe will include some with the UK release? Switched it on- fired up in about 15-20 seconds so reasonably quick. Holy smoke, this thing is bright......and a bit noisy, hmmmnnn, I hope to god its in high lamp mode. Quick check, yes, in high power mode as default- phew! Normal power and it quietens down and doesn't make your eyes bleed. JVC is quieter in both modes. I would say this is about standard for noise levels compared to other dlp projectors (to date I've had Optoma hd65, hd81 and hd87) with only the hd87 being a bit quieter. First up viewing was football, Man Utd on channel 5. Colours were totally over saturated, pretty horrible. Put it in cinema mode, played with gamma/colour temp/brightness/contrast for a minute just to get something less nauseating and found a good starter image. Motion was better than the JVC as you would expect from a DLP and that was without frame interpolation which I haven't tried yet. Watched some sky hd movie channels briefly too and image looks pretty good. At this point I would say sharpness on skyhd isn't as good as the JVC and therefore nowhere near hd87 levels but I'll not confirm just yet- I've a different av amp in between so I need to figure out if it's impacting or not. As it stands, image isn't as sharp as I would like but I'm yet to fire up a blu ray and send it direct, 24p so I'll refrain from commenting anymore until I do some proper tests. Joystick lens shift is excellent and zoom and focus rings work as you would expect- nice and smooth with medium movements equalling small adjustments. All in all, I'm looking forward to spending some time dialling it in and especially looking forward to its 3D performance. In the meantime, some pics from my phone.
