Summary: We just finished our basement and wanted a big screen tv for watching the "big game" on. The price was less than a much smaller flat screen television. Purchased for under $775 and now have about a 94" picture. Was easy to install. It's been in for about 6 months now and we're pretty happy with it. It runs quiet. Once the tv is on, you can't really hear the fan running on it. It was easy to setup. It is plenty bright.
Summary: Personal Experience Well after owing this model for 7 months i must say im very disappointing with the quality of the image ! brightness is good, but the contrast is very very poor ! it just plain grey ! some 1080p is ok anything below that forget it just full of grain and noise ! ive replaced the Benq with an older model Mitsubishi HC3800 which blows the Benq w1060 away !!
Summary: Took a chance on this projector and am very pleased. I was looking for the lowest price projector that supports 1080P native resolution. This is it. Bought it refurbished from Benq and it works great. Two HDMI ports and a VGA port make it very versatile. I needed this projector to show both PowerPoints and DVD/Blu-ray movies. I have used it with both a macbook pro (DVD) and an HP laptop with a blu-ray drive. No problems with either.
Summary: I bought this product refurbished from BENQ almost a month so I expected it to have some scratches and maybe some hours of use, when I go it there were no scratch and looks brand new which was good. I plugged it in and it worked instantly, Was still easily visible in a bright room even on the economic bulb setting. It had 2 hours of use on the bulb which isn't much considering the 5000-6000 lifespan of the bulb.
Summary: This projector looked fantastic. After lots of time investigating other comprable projectors (under $1,000), I decided to purchase the W1060. During some shows or films the projector would lose the picture, turn blue, re-scan all the video connections, and display the picture again. The problem started rarely at first, then happened 50 times during a show. There is no way to disable the auto-scan feature.
Summary: Personal Experience My friend recommended me this projector as he said it was a great budget entry level projector that would get me started. After using it for about 3 months I understood what he meant. For what you pay for this certainly is a very basic, yet powerful, and beautifully depicted picture. It uses a 16:9 aspect ratio throw which delivers the ideal ratio to eliminate any black bars on the top and bottom of the screen.
Summary: Personal Experience Originally I had purchased a Casio XJ-A240 to fit in my new dedicated home theater complete with in wall speaker systems, 100â€� screen. I returned it because of color saturation issues and the fact that it was not producing the image I wanted in 1080P. This is when I noticed this projector (BenQ W1060). I purchased it and received it the next day.
Summary: Personal Experience This is one awesome projector for the price. It has all imaginable inputs including S-Video and 2 HDMIs, and the picture quality from all inputs is stunning. With 2 light modes, you can extend the bulb life to 6,000 hrs, and even the economy light level is extremely bright. The colors worked for me right out of the box with no adjustments necessary. It produced 4 pixels in the same space as my 720p projector produced one pixel.
Summary: I bought this to get 1080p quality, which when you play slow moving videos is great, but soon as you play a fast action movie the RBE is terrible. This effected everyone in the room i.e. over 10 people and not just me. if its fast moving gaming or movies, stay well clear!
