I'm looking for a new projector after I learned hard lesson from buy 140$ cheap 720p projector, I've decided to spend little more bucks to buy decent(not bad)projector since I didn't like the quality of that cheap projector at all.
Although I didnt like the quality, I dont think I'm gonna be able to go back to the days not having projector since I was surprised how the screen could be that big with a projector whick my 42 inch Tv cant do.
So for the question.
I'm thinking about spending around 500~650$ and with some research.
there are choices like benq 1070, optoma gt1080 and hd142x.
I heard a lot of good reviews about benq w1070 and I would go for it if it wasnt 2012 model when optoma models seems more recent.
Is it still worth buying w1070 2017?
or optoma will be the best choice despite lack of image quality?
or maybe you guys have better recommendation?
I'm completely newbie in the world of projector and only played with cheap 140$ model and I just returned it.
Thanks for any advice.

I have recently purchased a W1070 projector and I can't get the 3D to work.
My last projector was an Acer, and with that one I could simply play a SBS movie on my computer and tell the projector that it was SBS content. It would then automatically change it to 3D.
With the Benq however, I can't even get into the 3D menu, it's greyed out. Perhaps this has to do with me using a VGA cable instead of HDMI, but I'm not sure since using VGA was never a problem with the Acer.
By the way, I'd prefer to use HDMI. But I'm still waiting for my Displayport to HDMI adapter to arrive from China... So in the meantime I'm just curious why my 3D options are greyed out on the Benq and if this has to do with me using VGA.

So I have a couple questions I'm hoping someone can guide me on. I've had my projector for a couple years, bulb finally went out, I cheaped out, got lucky once and not so lucky the second time, when 2 cheapos I bought exploded.
Finally got a legit BenQ direct from factory replacement bulb. I now have an ultra bright spot, almost like a dead pixel, but I am hoping it's dust or glass. The previous exploding bulbs were contained by the housing, but some glass has made it ms way into the projector. I have included a link to show what I'm referring to.
I also have a, well it's a bit like a dark cloudy spot about 4in in diameter. Barely noticeable and I couldn't capture it on camera.
Is this more likely dust? Glass? I assume if so that I could clean it. Or is it something more nefarious?
My other question is my elite screen is a 160" motorized variant. Sometimes the screen doesn't want to come down. The led indicator shows red, and the housing makes a clicking sound like it wants to engage, but doesn't. Then randomly thirty seconds to a minute later it'll come down about 50% of the time. Any chance this is just a fuse or is there a greater likelihood that I'll have to have it serviced?

I've heard some people saying that some projectors, including the one I have, the BenQ W1070, will start shutting down after 2 months or a bit more, due to overheating. In my opinion the overheating must be related to dust buildup inside the projector, leading to reduced airflow, even though I'm not sure that's enough dust buildup in 2 months. Since most of the DLP projectors doesn't have any filter, what should be done to prevent this from happening? Maybe vacuuming the air vents would help?
The BenQ W1070 have a sealed optical block?
I've also heard about dust getting inside the light path or lens after some time of use, is this a common issue?

A few days ago, a static rainbow colored "blotch" appeared in the upper left corner of the projected image. Today it turned into a flicker which I tried to capture on video here: https://youtu.be/HNZQIvWs5lo
I switched the image source and the artifact is visible on the slash screen as well so the cause must be with the projector. I tried cleaning the lens but this had no effect on the artifact.
Can anybody tell me the possible cause? The lamp has been in operation for 550 hours so there should be plenty of life left in it.
