Cool

just got my projector installed last weekend, but not that satisfy with the performance. the picture sometimes looks abit blur?( i don't know what words to use, can see square square frame) is the projector not gd enough? benq w100 and i am sitting around 4meter from 92 inch screen, is it too near that's why the picture not clear? or maybe is the DVD itself? because not all DVDs are blur but most of them....btw what is the setting in order to improve the picture quality?

w100 have a weird native resolution of 854x480 to make up 16:9.
try using 4:3 setup for reading text/subtitle.

Looks great, what's the gain on that screen?

Also, why the heck are you letting in all that ambient light?

the right way to watch TV is to on the ambient light

but that xscreen is just able to reflect as clear even if you turn on all your ambient light.

anyway, ignore that stupid singapore salesman link. It's overpriced here. I can either DIY or import myself from overseas. Unless they are selling the 100" one at 3K. Nobody will buy from them one lah.

Hi Bro,

Dun get so upset regrading the link. I am just sharing some of the experience with this great product. Just to intro some new concepts for creating a Home Theatre effect.
For custom screen, I also try different types of methods in creating one but fail as the gain is not there. In the dark room, the Xscreen gain is 2 and if there is ambient light the gain is 1. So all overall the performance is good.
This is a high end product, I admit that there are not many people can afford it.
But there are still people buying as to experience different kind of effect during the day.

you sure you're not the salesperson? lol

how much did you pay for it? I tried calling in and ask for demo, but you know what? nobody picked up at all.

I'm wondering if it's just another 1 or 2 man show kind of company.....

can't afford? you must be kidding, we are talking about projector hoh, not tiny LCD TV here....

but what for if it's overpriced? only stupid people burn their money with the extra....

I will probably import myself overseas instead of getting it from a funny suspicious local distributor.
