I've had the 1070 for 2.5 years now and have loved every single second of it. I have 6025 hrs on the OEM bulb (I am replacing it today or tomorrow) and its performed wonderfully. Hoping you enjoy the 1075 as much as i have enjoyed the 1070.

The only downside to this is the noise (basing this on the 1070). Its fairly loud at sea level, and extremely loud at a higher altitude (when I first bought it I lived in Denver). So if noise is a factor for someone, I wouldnt suggest the benq.

Just bought it. I'm a little wary of the DLP rainbow artifacts. I seemed to be highly sensitive to them in previous generations of projectors from about 5 years ago.
Maybe the color wheel is spinning fast enough to solve the problem in this unit.
The contrast ratio isn't the greatest compared to the LCD Epson 3500, 10,000:1 versus 70,000:1.
Best Buy was blowing out the 3500 for $899, but that's over. At this price ($600 delivered) I'll give the Benq a shot. Maybe it'll hold me until an LCD projector deal comes along.

**UPDATE rainbow artifacts are too prominent, great value otherwise, I won't be keeping it.

I got the HC3500 for $799+tax and returned yesterday. HT1075 is 10 times sharper and cleaner image BUT my unit(s), 1 refurbished from BenQ and one used from Amazon warehouse deals both had poor brightness uniformity (one side much darker). I submitted warranty claim with BenQ and they will send me another unit to try.

Previous, had Epson LCD for many years and now with trying the 3500 I know 3LCD projectors are not crisp and clear as DLP. Seriously, when I first powered the HT1075 my reaction was like my existing projectors was 480p resolution (and it is 1080p). Only if I can find a unit with good acceptable brightness uniformity...

Regarding the RBE, I can see it, especially on subtitles, white labels but only if you move your head/eyes around. Over all, even with RBE, I was amazed by the DLP


With all that said, it is still a budget projector. Light leaks a lot from it (lights up your ceiling), fan is noisier than I wish but reasonable. If the replacement BenQ is sending me is still no better with the brightness uniformity, I will be buying HT2050 units unitl I find a descent one.

nice deal, probably the best sub 1k projector

not sure how far away affordable 4k projectors are, but this will help fill the void in the meantime. i'm guessing 3 years or more, but it may never happen and instead, we may see large format oled take over

i would buy this in a snap if i didn't already have a 1080p projector with 110" screen that i've been enjoying for the past year (xbox games and tv and bluray movies)

Projectorcentral.com. Search for model and then projector calculator. Since it has vertical lens shift, it will not show you the hight offset between top of screen and center of lens. However note that lens shift is minimal on this projector and in my case, I had to bring mount about a foot down.

I'm in need of a decent projector that is short throw capable (~6 ft). Any recommendations guys?
I don't like the fact that I am having to hunt for something non standard but that's what I'm stuck with right now.

BenQ has s short throw version of their HT1075. I think it was HT1085ST. I know nothings else about it.

I have this and shoot it to a 120" retractable screen. This projector is awesome. I see no difference in this and going to the movies as long as I use a quality blu-ray source. I go to blu-ray.com to find what blu-rays are of high quality. It will display the shortcomings of compressed HD from cable and streaming services. 3D is also fantastic, but you'll need powered glasses. Gaming is also great. Best to use in a darkened room as the image washes out with increased room light.

movie theaters now are 4k and even those that aren't look much better than this projector

I can clearly see a difference and that is when comparing blu-ray sources, and my screen is only 110"

don't get me wrong, this is a great deal and its awesome to have the theater experience at home.... but you shouldn't be comparing a $100,000 commercial projector to this

Where did you got the oem bulb and how much it costs?
