Check the Sony VPL-HW40ES on eBay. Several places have it at less than $1,600.

Re: 1st projector help

Been using a BenQ W700 for 3 years. I plan on bumping up to the 1070 or 75 after the current phase of upgrades is finished.

I've been very happy with the W700. Yeah, it's only 720p, but when I got it I didn't have any HD content except through my PC. I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but Excel 2013 is very disorienting on a 96" screen...

Re: 1st projector help

Re: 1st projector help

You shouldn't have to switch it to High Altitude... Have you tried calling the Manufacturer...it might be defective.
Is it beyond your return date? If not i would return it and ask for a replacement...if you are lucky they might ship one out so you can swap it out after the new one arrives.

Re: 1st projector help

If it has an air filter, you should check it to see if it needs cleaning or replacement.
