Summary: I have used this projector on occasion. I have it mounted to a ceiling and was fairly east to mount. There are a lot of good features. At the time I have never heard of BenQ as a projector maker but the price was good and the specs were good. I have been happy with it to this point. It has a good resolution and the menu is very user friendly. I would recommend this projector.
Summary: Obviously they're not gonna be the best on earth, but they work very well. I now have an 80" computer screen which allows me to watch anything - yes guys, ANYTHING ;-) - in a relaxing recliner for hours. I'll take this over a basic computer monitor anyday.
Summary: Ive owned this projector for a 2 months and now the bulb over heats and it shuts the bulb off and goes to emergency cooling mode. I called amazon and they said I need to call Benq. I will update with their response. The colors and options are great but surely I must have a defective bulb or unit. I used it to watch 2 movies and to project art on a wall.
Summary: Personal Experience Best in entry level projector USB display is new feature, USb Display ,HDMI ,Two VGA Ports, Good looks ,Design, Soft carry bag,speed cool ,Brightness Uniformity,page up down through wireless remote Problems NO
Summary: This product is really a value for money product. It uses led bulb for projection that enhances the life of product and picture quality also awesome due to led light, sound quality too very good. Plug and play feature is also fabulous.
Summary: I picked this projector because I was looking for something that I could use to project movies outside. Having used it for that purpose a couple times, I can honestly say that it met my needs. It is very bright and has a decent picture. When not used outdoors, I have found a spot in my home office to project onto my wall from my computer/PS3.

Summary: i also found out while looking for glasses that this projector does not do 1080p it says it does but it seems to be benq's style to advertise things outta its capabilities and just say it does so people buy there product.
Pros: low price high quality picture RIO looks great nice color great quality smooth video most defintly best price for picture quality....
Cons: I have learned that this projector does NOT do any form of 3d other than very low end chart and graph work it will never work for movies or games in any way i have a computer capable of blu ray 3d and and there benq projector glasses as well as a 3d blu ray player and any combo of these things do NOT work the benq rep informed me that there is NO WAY AT ALL this projector will ever do 3d for me. and said optima is the cheapest way to get REAL 3D in a projector.
Summary: I was debating to do eyefinity or go for a projector and i couldn't be happier with my choice. A friend of mine has a home theater set-up and is using a 1080p benQ and honestly i don't see a massive difference between his and mine other than the blacks seem a little blacker. I would HIGHLY recommend this projector if you are looking for an amazing movie watching and gaming experience on a budget.
Pros: -Very bright
-Words are clear and easy to read
-Friends are jealous of my 100inch computer screen
-Playing games and watching movies on it is awesome
