Summary: I'm casting 100 inches from maybe 6 feet away from the screen. Simply amazing, if you ask me. I could zoom this thing to at least 120 inches from the same spot, but I thought 100 was plenty! For a home theater setup, short throw projection is the way to go, folks. It's almost impossible to stand so close (within reason) to the screen to block the image if you've got it ceiling-mounted. It's just so much more feasible for a home setup.
Summary: This projector is awesome. The best part is bigger screen with shorter distance from screen.. I love it. i can make big screen with less distance from screen. clear and bright. Makes little sound when you have quite scene in movie but not of a big issue. set is is easy and no need to calibrate much. 3D is somewhat good you see little dragging but i would say that is not a big issue that having this great projector with so much of pros with great price..
Summary: The projector arrived in just a couple of days in perfect condition. It took me about an hour to mount to our ceiling using a Projector-Gear mounting kit. I connected a new ROKU 3 by HDMI input and displayed output on an Elite Screens VMAX150XWH2 VMAX2 Electric Projection Screen (150-Inch 16:9 AR) in our living room.
Summary: I have been searching for a projector since last black Friday. Over the past year I have had many models reach the top of my list. I did extensive research on all products, 3d glass, cables ect.... The end result was my purchase of the Benq 1080st. I can honestly say it was one of the best purchases of my life. It will truely change the way you watch TV or movies. I use it everyday for TV viewing and 3D movies.
Summary: I've owned several projectors and this my second short throw and hands down this is the best short throw projector you can buy. This is the main reason I bought this projector for the flexibility it gives you. The picture quality is perfect nice sharp and great blacks. For the money there is not a better projector in this price range.
Summary: I have only been running the projector for a couple days now, and so far so good. It was easy to set up, and the menus are pretty self explanatory. I especially love the short throw versatility. Now I can use my Kinect without blocking the lights. I also called BenQ's Tech support for a quick question, and I spoke to someone within a minute. Really great. The only issue so far is trying to figure out my 3D option. A little more time and ill have this mastered.
Summary: I was going to get a 55 inch Plasma TV, but ended up buying this instead for steal it price. I was skeptical of my decision at first regarding the blacks, fan noise and placement of projector. I am really really happy with the purchase. Blacks - I am happy with it unless I want to critique some movie, I wouldn't notice. But I do want to say that you need a dark room to see the real potential of this lil beast.
