Summary: You can't get better quality than this at this price point. Great quality and good settings. Although it doesn't have horizontal shift like the other model (non short throw), it still has keystoning correction so you can correct the tilt angle from not being able to use horizontal shift. Also, look up online what color settings are best.
$4,000+ for a 60 inch TV, or <$1,000 for 300 inch?

Summary: The header should say it all, but if you would take the argument that projector lamp replacements every 4000-6000 hours of use at $120-$250 a pop, that's still quite a lot of (several years worth) of breath taking home theater that also delivers the world's most high end 3D (144hz powered active shutter lenses) at the same time. How long do we keep TVs and technology these days before something comes along and we have to get the next thing?
Summary: I was trying to decide whether to go with an Epson, with some cool wireless features, LED, and the ability to adjust for angle distortions from mounting in weird locations. I decided to go with the BenQ because it was great to mount it so close to my wall and get a huge screen. The colors are great, bright, and I can see it during the daytime even with significant light in the room.
Summary: This is my first projector. i choose this model - over the W1070 because of the short throw optics :allows a more immersive expirience in a narrow rooms, and during games like Kinect \ move - the player do not interupt the way of the projected beam. and another nice thing - the remote i got is the remote of the W1500 (back lit remote, and better built) and not the old W1070 remote. so i think the ship all W1080st with the better W1500 remote.
Summary: I bought this projector as used and an open box item. No issues with the open box item. Hooked it up in about 30 minutes. Distance to screen 5 feet 6 inches. Awesome picture. I have surround sound. The slight noise from the benq cooling fan is not noticeable. The down side is that I have to wait now for the patriots season...
Summary: I originally purchased the ViewSonic PJD5533W Projector but ended up returning it for this one, and I'm glad I did. For my needs, it's worth the extra 450. The ViewSonic projector was a great projector for its price. If you don't need a short throw and you don't have a big budget, I highly recommend the ViewSonic. However, for me, I have a small living space and the throw on the ViewSonic was just way to long.
Summary: I love my TV so much! I turned my 'normal TV room' into a true home theater for less than I spent on my 60" LCD TV just a couple years ago. This amazing! TV throws up 150" of crisp, bright, beautiful 1080p onto my permanent-mount wall screen. The effect is shocking - for all the world it appears as if I have 150" LCD TV! This size is not yet even available and every single person who has seen my TV in real life can't help but comment.
Summary: Very good and bright projector. It sits really close to the screen. So the projector will be in front of you instead of being on top of your head or behind you. The projector is really bright so you can keep it on eco mode and save your bulb. On eco mode the fan is virtually silent , no sound at all. I live in NYC it's freezing outside and the heat is on full blast in my house and still no fan sound at all. I'm playing 1080p MKVs and they look great .
