Was the best, bright 720p DLP in its day

  • Summary: One of the best buys of the HD2 DLP chip era. Possess very good light production and easily user accessible and serviceable bulb and filter assemblies. The lens is capable of projecting a very bright, large image at very short throw distances. The color settings are easily accessed and adjusted to calibrate to a given target without having to enter into the service menu. The 720p resolution was good enough at its release to earn fans of its image quality.
  • Pros: VERY bright, Very short throw distance, Great Price
  • Cons: Noisy, Poor Black Levels

  • Summary: Personal Experience Projector performance is very satisfactory. Picture on a 144" wide screen and is absolutely phenominal and HD is exceptionally beautiful. My first lamp lasted for about 30 months and 1500 hours in economic mode. Lamp life was shorter than expected - but still respectable. Projector is ceiling mounted in a home theater. Problems A little difficult to setup. However, this was my first experience with a projection system.

  • Summary: Personal Experience Owned this projector for about 18 months, it is connected to my sky HD box and DVD is used as a TV. I was suprised to see that there are so many problems I use the projector for at least 8 hours a day and run it on economy mode as I am a bit tight and want the bulb to last as long as possible, I change the bulb at 3000 hours and am on my 3rd bulb now. So far no problems and would definately update to another Benq projector when the time comes.

  • Summary: Personal Experience The picture is amazing in Component or HDMI mode. You can connect anything to this unit: Xbox, DVD Player, HD Cable Box or your computer. The family really enjoys it- it's better than being at the movies. Problems Needed Free Firmware upgrade due to mfg date of March 2005. This was done without Any hassles from Benq. Newer ones have the new software.

  • Summary: Personal Experience A wicked projector! I was stoked when I first fired it up in my new home theatre. Footy, general HDTV and movies are awesome! My only gripe is that I wasted my money on the DVE display calibration DVD as all the PE7700 needed out of the box was some very minor RGB gamma tweaking to slightly boost black level detail. The picture now pumping out is absolutely beautiful to watch and that's just projecting onto a prepared and painted white plaster wall!

  • Summary: Personal Experience This is my second post. The first was on Feb 8. I have 690 hours on the lamp now with no problems. Based on the posts from others, I am convinced the cooling in this unit is under designed. My solution was to mount an external 16 inch house fan that blows across the unit at medium speed. I turn on this fan before I turn on the projector and turn off the fan after I shut down the projector.

  • Summary: Personal Experience I purchased my projector in October and it ran wonderfully until the end of April. Yep, bulb blew. I called BenQ because they knew that projectors manufactured before 2006 had some "issues". Ten minutes later, I had an RMA. Eighteen days later, my projector was back. The image has improved by leaps. It sounds like they upped the fan speed also. But all in all, all is well.

  • Summary: Lucky enough to get one of these projectors for just over $200. Crisp true colour sharp image. Perfect for home theatre. Quiet fan. Bulbs cheaper to replace than many other brands.

Wesentlich besser als erwartet!

  • Summary: Ich nutze den Beamer als Heimkino-Beamer und bin voll und ganz zufrieden! Zwar ist er "nur" Hd-ready und stellt 720p dar, doch muss ich sagen, dass sich Blu rays (Über Multimediafestplatte Fantec MM FHDL) auf meiner 2m x 1,50m Leinwand kristallklar und scharf darstellen lassen. Also in meinen Augen ein "perfektes Bild", vorallem bei Standbildern.
