Excerpt: It works beautifully even on a rough wall and it's bright enough to watch during daytime. The speakers are terrible as expected with any projector, but with an apple TV and an airport express, I can connect to a pair of Audioengine 2 speakers wirelessly. Highly recommended!
Pros: Clear Display, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
Excerpt: This is my first projector and I have several 50"+ HDTV's (LED, LCD, Plasma) so I wasn't sure what to expect so went the "value route" with this projector. Holy cow was I impressed! Even before I painted the wall to be used as a screen, the picture was bright and vivid. I am shooting a 14' screen at a distance of about 13', and keystone correction is perfect for the angle I am shooting (ceiling).
Excerpt: I upgraded to this full HD/3D model from a 720p Epson. The Epson was just full of headaches. Burned through lamps like no one's business. Color was always so-so. As soon as I turned on this BenQ, I knew I made the right decision. It was the same price as the Epson was 2 yrs ago with full HD and 3D capabilities, and it gets stellar Cnet reviews. One of the first things we watch on it was The Dark Knight. Some of the city flyovers actually had me literally drop-jawed.
Excerpt: During my endless search online for a good projector the BenQ kept coming up but I was very concerned on the throw distance. I convinced myself I needed a short throw projector for a long time but after hours of research and throw calculators I finally accepted that I didn't need a short throw projector. At 7 feet I get an 86" diagonal image and Im sitting about 7 feet away so this thing looks massive.
Pros: Clear Display, Easy To Use, Looks great, Medium Throw, Plug And Play
Cons: Could Be Brighter, Needs Deeper Blacks, Speakers Are Just Ok
I ran my directv threw it and the picture was amazing "125 diagonal 16

Summary: This projecter is something special for all the options it has I use it for my world cup party and the crowd went wild!!! I ran my directv threw it and the picture was amazing "125 diagonal 16.9 ratio" 14' away and set the picture on aniphormic view wich kept the picture flat corner to corner other wise you get that round door peephole effect.
Pros: I am someone who sees rainbow effect more than most others. I stepped up from an LCD 720p Epson (that I also really liked and purchased to avoid rainbow), and was fearful about rainbow effect going back to DLP. I guess the faster color wheel does indeed help, since, while still there, the effect for me remains very minimal...not enough to bother me like it was on an old infocus x1. The only time I really notice it is if there is something very white on the screen and ...
Cons: while I only see minimal rainbows, they do still exist. I haven't tried other current-model DLP projectors, but it is way better at hiding rainbows than the older DLP's I've used in the past.
Summary: Personal Experience My first projector and it was eye opening. Opened up a new love and appreciation for the film arts. Can be finicky and challenging to get through a proper setup like positioning, screen placement, cables etc. Patience is rewarded. Love the projector for color and sharpness of image. 3D is very good. Highly recommend! Problems I got several units that failed due to faulty remote controls. They were exchanged.
Summary: I needed to replace a ViewSonic Pro8100 projector that served me well for 4 years, but after a thunderstorm, the HDMI ports on the ViewSonic stopped receiving a signal (side note: be sure to ground your main input coax cable. Verizon did not do this, hence I lost HDMI functionality on a projector and a receiver during a thunderstorm).
Excerpt: I am NOT a professional or have a lot of experience with home theater projectors, but I research a ton before buying something. I have a very tight budget, but really wanted a great picture especially on Blu-Ray.This DELIVERS! So far I have played it on an off white wall, and the picture is incredible, watching Blu-Ray movies, Uverse TV, and even streaming off of Amazon.
Pros: Built In Speakers, Clear Display, Easy To Use
Impressive first hour! Then it overheated and shutdown.

Summary: I purchased this projector to replace a Panasonic 720p. I mounted it on my existing universal ceiling mount and used the menu to invert the image. I used the focus grid to properly adjust the zoom and focus and found that a required a slight amount of keystone on my 120" screen. I ran two new HDMI cables and put Avatar into my Sony Blu-ray player. The scenes just from the menu selection were awesome.
