Came across this whilst looking to set up a cinema room, I was looking at the BENQ W1070 deal but was put off by the Rainbow effect that can bother some people due to the BENQ one being DLP.

I have the w1070 and the rainbow effect that certain DLP projectors can show is very rare and only occurs to certain people. I have never had the issue. Being honest though, the W1070 is a brilliant projector...I can't say anything about the Epson projector, but have to say that £399 for the BenQ is a great deal for a a really good projector.

Got this very projector from Amazon Black Friday week, gives a nice bright picture, easy set up, was scared that the missus would suffer from the "rainbow effect" with the Benq, In hindsight I shouldn't have even mentioned it to her !

are these projectors ok for everyday use or best for movies and sports only?

As long as you can control the light coming into the room, blackout blinds or curtains then you can although I use mine mainly for Movies, Sports and Gaming

I got this from Richer Sounds a few weeks back, but still waiting for my PS4, so haven't used it yet. It seems like a genuine reduction, as I had been looking at this for awhile around the £529-£550 mark. I had an Acer before and did notice the 'rainbow effect', which is why I went for this. People advise to test them for yourself, but unfortunately, this is not really practical. Shame, as I was tempted by the BenQ, as it is well reviewed.

I also chose to take the 6 year warranty from RS for £43 (none refundable like other items though), which I was quite pleased with.

As this is an LCD and potentially suffers from blacks being 'washed out' (I'm hoping this is a lot of fuss about not very much - I'm not an audio/video perfectionist!), been reading about having a small 25w ambient light in the room, which helps apparently.

Also, found this just this afternoon (getting ready to set mine up!)...something about an hdmi video range setting needs to match or be selected on display - Nvidia cards in PCs prone to not choosing the correct setting apparently?. Like I said, not set mine up yet, so don't know if it's an issue, but seemed useful just in case!

files.support.epson.com/doc…tml - search 'video range', choose input signal setting from left.

It doesn't matter if you choose LCD or DLP as you will still have a much better time than viewing on a television.

I can only notice the rainbow effect by moving my head like a lunatic from side to side but I never see it playing games or watching movies.

Also If your not picky about the projector screen and need it for different rooms or the garden the pull up versions are great

Has anyone played 3d still photos (*.mpo files, such as from the Fujifilm W3) through a projector? I can't find any information about this.

Can this still be had for £429 as it showing 529 on the rs site.
