I've had a Benq W1070+ for a few years now, coupled with an 84" electric screen from Amazon, which was around £100. Recently I've been getting more and more bothered by the poor shadow details and performance in darker scenes. Everything that remotly in shadow just looks black, Ive played with settings, I even bought a Disney setup bluray and ran through that, didn't really help. The room is painted mostly Magnolia, but the wife doesn't like the sound of anything darker, she absolutely hates dark rooms, everything has to be light and bright. I only use the projector when its dark, I mean dark enough that I need a torch to move around the room, so its not too bright in the room, I also bought a filter for the PJ as I read this improves black levels, and it does, but its still not enough. So, is the W1070 just not up to the job? Will I ever get black levels and shadow detail comparable to my 7 year old 42" Toshiba TV? I don't want to spend hundreds on a new (better) screen if I'm just going to be left disappointed. Should I be looking at replacing the PJ, and if so how much am I going to have to spend to get an improvement? Another issue is noise, I'm noticing the fan noise a lot recently, I'm pretty sure it hasn't got louder but I'm noticing it more, and its starting to annoy me, do quiet PJ's exist or will I need to build a hush box?
