Great picture but problems cropping every few days

  • Summary: I bought this from amazon & got it shipped to India, picture quality was great & everything worked great for a week or so, but then the remote control started having problems, it does not work from a distance & by distance I mean only if i stick it to the projector (1/2 inch distance) then it works (I changed the batteries, tried different ones, but same result)...now 2 days back the audio out has stopped working & even the speaker does not work..

Wow.

  • Summary: Wow. Such projector, many HD! This projector replaced my (awesome) 720p 3D Viewsonic projector. In the TV space, the difference between 720p and 1080p is usually hard to notice. Not so in the projector space. 1080p essentially doubles your pixel count, and it makes all the difference in the world when your screen is 9' across. And the very nice short throw lens on this unit makes these kind of screen sizes possible.

If in your price range, stop looking and buy now

  • 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?

AMRJS, Amazon

  • 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?

BenQ W1080p 3D Short Throw

Zachary Scott, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • 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.

good qualety and great value

yoni, Amazon

  • 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.

Great projector

L2, Amazon
11 May 2014
  • 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...

Great Reasonably Priced Short Throw Projector

Michael S, Amazon
24 April 2014
  • 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.
