  2. My BenQ W5000 Died Last Night

    Home Theater Projectors
    After 3 years it's finally given up the ghost to the dreaded bad DMD panel. Half the screen is black and white vertical lines. I'm pretty disappointed that this unit, even though it is a refurb, lasted a little over 3 years only. My original projector, a Mitsubishi HC3000, is still going...

    All of the sudden my Benq W5000, which has worked like a dream for a couple of years, started going crazy on just the left half of the screen. It is completely garbled while the right side is perfect. I turned it off and on and that worked for a few days, but now it is constant. Is there an...

    Home Theater Projectors
    I recently got in on the refurbished bandwagon for this projector. And I'm very happy with it. My old pj was the Mitsubishi HC3000 which was your average run of the mill 720p projector. The W5000 is a 1080p. I figured I'd share this journey! ;) When the box showed up at the door I was amazed...
