Hi all,
I was on the lookout for a decent projector, and just placed an order for BenQ W1070 3D projector from frys.com for 779$ shipped.
Their website seems to be behaving oddly, and you may have to call them at 1-408-350-1484 to place the order via phone. Also, walmart.com was willing to do a price match, but they were charging me tax extra, so I went with frys.com.

Amazon has this item listed for 875$ (http://www.amazon.com/BenQ-W1070-...benq+w1070).

The lowest it went was for $749 a month or so ago from amazon.

Cheers !

just bought this last month for $800 on amazon so this is a great deal.

projector is AWESOME.

my only issue is with the 3D. I use a wdtv hd live and the 3D worked on my mitsubishi DLP but for some reason it won't work with this projector.

anyone know why? or what type of media player i should buy instead of the wdtv?

thanks!

You guys might want to check out this projector.

Its cheaper has equal performance to the W1070, and has a better warranty. After deciding between this projector, and the W1080st. The Viewsonic won, it does have a short throw lens even though it is not mentioned. Im less then 10 feet away from the wall with a 100" screen. The 3-d through my samsung blue ray looks amazing so far on what I tried. The HD from my cable company is excellent too, the images are crisp and sharp.

Hmm...I did not know that. When I called the customer service number listed, even before asking for the shipping zip code, the rep mentioned Frys does not charge tax..i men ever and for everyone. Guess I was wrong.

TD for me. If the product is not shipped from AK, OR, MT, DE, or NH then DO NOT PUT NO TAX. Let the people figure it out themselves based on their state. Pet peeve of mine.

I really wanted the W1080st, but when I saw the viewsonic and its stats and also the price I could not pass up trying it. I got it for $600 with 2 free 3-D glasses and a option for a free screen and mount if just paid for shipping. For me the price difference at the time was about $300. So I decided ill try it out if it looks better then my current projector by a lot, and I am impressed, ill keep it. I had it for a full two weeks and made my choice its a keeper. I saved a ton of cash and I got a excellent image. I would have returned it if I wasn't impressed, paid the restock if there was one, but I was. My only other concern besides image was rainbow effect, but I have not noticed a rainbow a single time, neither has anyone else who has been watching tv on it. I view it from multiple viewpoints sometimes and even then saw nothing.

Could you be more specific on what info? It has a 1k more lumens then the w1070 which is not a short throw projector. It has a 3 year warranty compared to the 1 year the benq has. They both have 6x color wheels which are just slightly different, with equal performance, the w1070 has a better uniform spread, but everything else was almost identical, colors out of the box slightly better on the w1070, but you can come almost identical if you adjust the viewsonic. Also if I remember right dont quote me on this one, I am pretty sure 3-D at full HD cant be done at 120hz on all modes on the benq while it can be done on the viewsonic, and I am pretty sure the response time is quicker on the view sonic which makes it perfect for gaming. Also one is short throw the other is not. So let me know what your unclear on.

thanks a lot for the recommendation! my bro in law has a 1080 viewsonic (don't think this is the one though) and he loves it. i had 2 pj'"s recently, an older hd1000 and the mitsu hc1500 that i still have. i was projecting over a very long distance with the hd1000 onto an absolutely huge wall but the long cable runs were ugly. want to streamline it all with a short throw pj. thanks for the advice will look into this one
