  • Summary: First, I'd like to say that I ordered this projector on May 9th, and recieved it less than 24 hours later. Kudos to NCIX for the speedy shipping. Picked this up on sale for $399 because I was curious about trying a projector setup for the first time, but couldn't justify spending upwards of $1000 for the novelty. I basically wanted a projector that I could use as a large secondary monitor for my computer, for playing movies, tv shows and videogames.
  • Pros: -Decent image quality., -Good selection of inputs., -Excellent value, especially on sale., -Conveniently small form factor., -Auto keystoning to allow flexibility of placement., -Slick design., -Short throw distance for huge images in small rooms., -Intuitive user interface.
  • Cons: -Contrast and brightness could be better., -Gets very hot., -Light weight makes it a little unstable., -Speakers are too weak for anything but casual use.

  • Summary: I haven't put this project through a full calibration, so can't comment on videophile aspects... I replaced a Sharp XVZ-10000U (which has been eating bulbs like candy for the last few years) with this projector. The first thing you notice is the Benq is very significantly brighter - lights on low don't wash it out much and ambient light spill from other rooms during the day is not a problem.
  • Pros: Bright, hi-res, low cost
  • Cons: hdmi inputs seem to be weak

  • Summary: Very good small projector, surprisingly cheap for whats it's capable of. Better if kept in a light controlled room. Integrated speakers are ok but pluging in a surround sound system definitely improves experience. Makes a nice projector for gaming on a budget since it virtually has no lag.
  • Pros: -Very nice picture quality under controlled light environment, -Comes with a nice carrying case and useful wires and adapters
  • Cons: -Focus wheel is a bit small and hard to set perfectly due to its size, -The projector sits on 3 rubber buds which makes it unstable (fine if left untouched but better if installed on camera tripod)

  • Summary: I bought this for use in a classroom. Been happy so far, no issues. As the other reviewer said, the VGA cable doesn't lock so sometimes disconnects if you change touch the system. One issue I had is after I showed a short video on it using my iphone, 12 hours later I tried to watch something on utube but the phone thought I was still connected to the projectore. Uncool!! Turned off the phone and re-booted and it was fine.
  • Pros: Very compact, lightweight, ipod dock
  • Cons: cables are not standard
