Summary: I like this projector but, unfortunately, I'm one of the 25% or so of the population who suffer from the rainbow effect which single chip DLP's can exhibit. Very nice picture for the price otherwise.
Summary: First issue: my W1200 made a cricket chirping noise (perhaps the spinning color wheels?) that went away temporarily when you tapped on the unit. Amazon was super fast and responsible about replacing it and the replacement doesn't make the noise. The second issue is perhaps more relevant to most shoppers: video from the W1200 is out of sync with the audio and it's very noticeable. You need a modern home theater receiver that has a delay compensation function.
Summary: Personal Experience The benq 1200 produces excellent blue ray video, the colors and sharpness are great. I have been watching "LOST " episodes from a standard DVD on a 110 inch screen about 10 feet back and I can say the quality is very good, not as good as blue ray but pretty good. Some blue ray scenes look like your watching a 120 inch lcd, the sharpness and color are that good. The built in speaker is loud enough for a small room.
Summary: As this has been my first experience of creating a home cinema I don't have anything to compare it too, however my first impressions are that it gives off an amazing picture when projected onto a black widow painted screen. the only downside to it as far as I'm concerned is that there is no lens shift and therefore I have to have it at a slightly funny angle on my ceiling, it's a minor issue though and I think it could be fixed by moving the projector further away from...
The best entry level Home Theater projector I found!
13 November 2011
Excerpt: After months of doing research, and knowing absolutely nothing about projectors, I ended up grabbing this projector for me and my husband’s anniversary present. He had always wanted a projector to add to his man cave; however, has been extremely busy at the office lately and has no time on his hands to go off and research and search for a home theater projector. I made it a mission to learn as much as possible through self-research, forums, and you-tube videos.
Pros: Rich colors, bright, better than our 50 inch LED TV
Summary: Early review of BenQ W1200 - DLP Projector - 1800 ANSI lumens - 1920 x 1080 - widescreen - High Definition 1080p I have just purchased and BenQ W1200 project from Amazon. I have found the project has excellent picture quality in terms of detail and colour. It is fairly quiet, easy to setup and I had no problem with ceiling mounting it with this bracket PROJECTOR CEILING MOUNT BRACKET UNIVERSAL UP TO 10KG UK (just need to purchase 4 M4 screws as the ones supplied were too...
Summary: Oh mann, alles nix ordentliches. Unser alter Medion Beamer kommt an die Grenzen seiner Lampe und nu ist es Zeit für nen neuen Beamer. Mein Plan: wieder nen Tausender in die Hand nehmen und was bekommen was richtig Spaß macht. Mehr ist mir die Sache nicht wert, dafür gucken wir zu selten, und weniger gibt selten HD.
Summary: Il W1200 è leggero, fa parte della famiflia di proiettori luminosi a 1080p destinati per l'home entertainment e film. A soli 7,9 kg, sono decisamente portatili per quanto proiettori home theatre andare. Tutti i proiettori della famiglia W condividono la stessa attività operativa e utilizzano la stessa lampada. Usano anche lo stesso telecomando.
Pros: Широко фокусный объектив дает картинку 3 м диагональю с расстояния 3,4 м. Стильный дизайн и не большие габариты. Удобный пульт с подсветкой. Яркости хватает. Эксплуатирую лампу в эконом режиме.
Cons: Не удалось получить сфокусированное изображение на всей площади экрана. По углам экрана легкий расфокус,проявляющийся в легкой размытости мелких шрифтов на рабочем столе, но абсолютно не заметный при просмотре видео. Видимо нужно более точно размещать проектор по нормали к экрану.
