Summary: Personal Experience My wife was sensitive to some rainbow effects when we went to check DLP projectors a year ago, but then we went around looking for them this year and came across the Optoma HD20, Mits HC4000 and the BenQ W1100, where all 3 had 4x color wheels. We were happy to know that the color wheel was fast enough to eliminate her seeing rainbows.
Summary: I have owned three HD projectors before deciding on buying this one. I had never owned a BenQ before, but had heard a lot of good things about their projectors from friends. I found this projector being the best HD projector I have ever owned, especially for the price it retails at. The picture is crisp and clear. And the built-in speakers are good if you are to take the projector to someone's house, like I often do.

Summary: Very clear. Combined with a glass beaded screen, is viewable even in a daylit room. Bought this one in preference to the W1200 due to the higher ANSI rating (2000 vs 1800), and also slightly cheaper price. Turned off the sound and routed it through my hi-fi - not sure about the quality of the in-built speakers for all but emergencies if you were presenting something out on the road. For an installation you'd want to use another sound system.
Excerpt: After months of research I decided to get me one of these. Well technically after months of research plus two of my friends getting them, and after a couple screenings did I decide to get one of these. Call me precautious, call me prude, but in the end I’m happy that I got the projector that I knew for a fact would do well in my setup and my budget range. From all my research I’ve always known I would want a DLP over an LCD. The W1100 makes that case much stronger.
Pros: Black levels, contrast, brightness, PBP, picture quality, POP
Cons: Because of higher lumens, the bulb hours are much less . Black levels could be better than HC4000
Summary: habe mir vor 2 jahren den beamer gekauft und war bis dato sehr zufrieden. lüftergeräusch war akzeptabel und die farben klasse. heute ist mir dann allerdings urplötzlich die lampe kaputt gegangen. ärgerlich nach ca. 300 stunden lampenlaufzeit! der beamer hing immer am gleichen ort, wurde nie transportiert und nur mit fernbedienung bedient..
Summary: Das Gerät wurde seh schnell und gut verpackt geliefert. In den Grundfunktionen ist es intuitiv ohne Anleitung sofort bedienbar. Bild- und Tonqualität sind sehr gut. Das Gerät startet mit deutlichem Lüftergeräusch, das aber nach kurzer Zeit durch geringere Lüfterdrehzahl auf ein wenig störendes Niveau zurück geht.
