Summary: I needed a projector for small conference room use and for use in a Courtroom, and had hoped to have one for occasional use in the backyard for family movie night. This short throw does everything well, and I could not be happier. I had 2 Viewsonics whosle brightness and pictures was not as good, and they are much louder.
Summary: My church uses this to rear project moving images that's 16ft across and 9ft tall.. This image is produced from a 8 foot throw distance behind the screen and the image is clearly visible from 150ft away at the end of our sanctuary. The image isn't the brightest at this distance and it's not native HD but it works for our purposes. For any screen smaller than ours it will work great. Front projections will have sharp images at very very short distances..
Summary: We bought two of these for an event where we didn't have a whole lot of space behind the screens. Normal projectors require so much distance to make a picture. These guys don't have the shortest throw ratio out there, but how often do you really need to put up a 10' picture with only 2' of space? For the price, these little guys are perfect. We did a 6'x10'8" picture with these and it was beautiful. Needed about 5 feet to do it.
Summary: Used in large, medium and small venues - I love this projector! Ultra short throw is the only way to go - I'm using it as my 10 foot wide monitor right now and it's only about 4 feet from the screen!
Summary: The first projector that was delivered was found defective right out of the box. I plugged it in and hit the power button to hear an irritating grinding noise, I shut it off immediately and when I powered it on for the second time the noise was gone but so was the light. I called tech support at BenQ and they were very easy to work with, I went through a few steps and they told me it was defective, they were professional and knew what to try right away from what I...
Excerpt: I am very impressed with by BenQ. Easy to setup Great Image Easy Menu Well Made I run it for 7 hours at a time (additional cooling fan under unit to cool the lamp). I do a lot of events and it is always with me!!
