BenQ W1080ST DLP projector

CNET
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: The BenQ W1080ST short-throw DLP projector offers very good performance and extra placement flexibility, but the long-throw W1070 is a better deal.
  • Pros: The BenQ W1080ST DLP projector offers a very good image for the price with relatively deep blacks and faithful color; short throw allows placement close to the screen, on a coffee table for example; onboard speaker; decent 3D performance.
  • Cons: Limited setup options with no manual lens shift; old 3D system; no 3D glasses in package and cost $99 extra.

BenQ W1080ST+

AVForums
27 February 2015
  • Conclusion: If you have a normal room with the length to use a regular projector - then stick with that route, the W1080ST+ is not for you. However, if you are lacking the space and ability to get a normal projector far enough back for a large image, this is one product you should seek out for a demo. It really does get around some of the issues of short throw environments with the ability to project 100-inches and more from just 4ft back.
  • Pros: Good brightness even with 3D images, Works well in rooms with limited light control, Good sharp images with decent motion handling, Good video processing, Good 3D performance, Good value for money for those with a small space to work in
  • Cons: Mediocre black levels, No shadow detail in lower reaches of the image, No lens shift, Noisy even in low lamp settings

  • Summary: Kurzdistanz gab es schon, Full HD gibt’s schon lange. Bisher ist der W1080ST jedoch der einzige Beamer der 1.000-Euro-Klasse, der beides miteinander kombiniert. Das macht ihn gleichsam zum Einzelstück und zu einem absoluten Familienprojektor, der in sämtlichen Betriebsarten mit tollem Bildeindruck zu begeistern weiß.
