  1. This week for sure. Yes I've read it's a good update so that's good news. This is the first dynamic iris by BenQ? So naturally going to have teething problems. My unit did that split screen thing too a while back but it might have been hdmi cables as I replaced them and don't think it's happened since.
  2. The problem is though, by nature, 4k has lost native contrast compared to the previous 2K models, which were just fine btw.
  3. The 1070 sounds alot like the old W5000 which was one of my all time favorite projectors. This image was with Tony Dummets 5 element A-lens, you can see him on the left side of the pic.
  4. No just one I just found on YT. On the front page https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=BenQ+5550+
  5. This video might be helpful too for updating firmware
  6. This vid below shows it but that sounds like a fan blade hitting metal. My unit make a deeper grinding noise whenever the iris moves
  7. I noticed the same thing with my X7500, great lenses for that series, then I think they changed something and messed around with the e-shift on the 7900 and 9900 series. Text seem to look sharper at the expense of the image which was odd. I think they were stuck for an upgrade and had to do it regardless.
  8. Go down to your local west coast hi fi store and check out the epson 9400, you'll be impressed. Under 4 grand too, for that price you can't lose.
  9. Shouldn't be common, the epson and jvc's do that best. the sony doesn't have the processing power to get back to saved position.. so a bit odd you're experiencing this?
  10. So here we have That Home Theater Dude review and shootout between the 5050UB and 6050UB. (I think the 5050UB was slightly out of focus tbh. the difference isn't that grand) And the comment about the 'vast difference' and 'leagues ahead' between it and the TW9300 (5040UB) reinforces what I've said about the optics once again.
  11. Well that is much better. seems like there's too much variance from unit to unit. These reviews are strange with words like exemplary, precision and comments like it doesn't get much better than this, then they say keep in mind it's only 1500 dollars.. Hard to work out what they're 'really saying'. They're saying value for money, and indeed they are.
  12. Not yet, lost my usb stick doh! Tomorrow hopefully.
  13. Anamorphic mode is restricted to the ISF colour setting only, why is that? Can't be used on any other colour mode which is really strange. https://www.avsforum.com/forum/68-digital-projectors-under-3-000-usd-msrp/3050402-benq-w5700-ht5550-4k-100-dci-p3-projector-announcement-ownera-s-thread.html#post58383340 I cannot fathom what has gotten into BenQ that they would place this restriction on the use of an anamorphic lens - in other words you can't have this feature in any user-configurable picture mode because...why? I have several different picture modes for various viewings; from games to TV (with some lighting on) to movies...with a fixed lens for all...but apparently I must use an ISF mode for everything if I want to use the lens. So, does anyone have the password/key sequence for ISF mode they're willing to share? I was about to pull the trigger on this projector now that the anamorphic modes were in place - but if I do I may have to modify the ISF settings to my liking based on what I'm watching. This latest release cycle of BenQ projectors has been quite confusing.
  14. Motorised or pull down? Yep as above try ebay and google to see what they're selling for. If pull down probably worth $50 to someone, motorised, maybe $200, it's a small screen.
