"The BenQ W1070 is a great little home video projector that produces a 2D image that looks more expensive than it is. High light output and great shadow detail help the W1070 stand up to ambient light, while extensive color controls and solid factory calibrations make it easy to just plug and play.
Though black levels are competitive with other home video projectors, they are not at a level where we'd be comfortable recommending the W1070 for dedicated dark room movie viewing or photography presentation. But what the W1070 does, it does very well -- namely, it provides a great living room experience for high-definition 2D content, and with the lights off it can give you a solid 3D picture with almost zero crosstalk. Most importantly, it does all this at a price that's highly competitive in today's market. "
"They haven't skimped to keep the price down; the W1070 is sharp and detailed with good brightness of 2000 lumens allowing for a bit of light in the room.
With 10,000:1 contrast it gives good shading and works well with everything from a DVD and Bluray movie to a games console or computer game. The next step up with the same detail will be something like the Epson TW6100 but will cost double the price.
The 3D functionality works quite well without any setup trouble and compatibility with all the major formats including nvidia 3D from computers, the 3D glasses are $149.95each."
"BenQ W1070 Projector - The Bottom Line
If you can purchase this W1070 projector for under $1100, then I can't think of a better value at the moment in a low cost 3D capable projector.
This is first and foremost, a family room projector - a home entertainment projector rather than a home theater projector. That is, it's intended for less than opitimized rooms. But the BenQ W1070 is also a 3D capable projector with very good 3D. 3D demands "horsepower".
At today"s consumer technology level, my personal take is that the BenQ W1070 is the best projector (with 3D capability under $1100), that I've encountered. Black level performance is good for the price but no match for serious "ultra high contrast" projectors ($2000+) "
