    My Benq W1070 has failed. It is only a few months old, so will be repaired, but it has made me think it it time for an upgrade.

    I bought the Benq in February, really to dip my toe in and work out how much I'd use/enjoy a projector.

    I have really enjoyed it and use it quite a lot. The picture is amazing for the price and it has made me enjoy 3D which I never really did using a TV.

    The only problem is the fan noise. It has to be mounted right above my head and as much as I have tried to convince myself it does not annoy me, it really does - especially in 3D mode when it is much louder.

    The Sony HW40ES is the obvious choice, but I don't think it has the throw that I need. In order to fill my screen, the Benq is at 100% zoom as it is. I think the Sony has less throw than that plus the unit itself is bigger.

    Any other recommendations?
