BenQ W1500 review

23 May 2014
  • Conclusion: At the end of the day, we tend to prefer Epson’s Powerlite Cinema 3020e projector, even if it is a good $600 more expensive. With that said, the BenQ W1500 is an great projector in its own right, and its included wireless HDMI connectivity, once set up, is reliable and of reasonable quality. We also tremendously appreciate the little bit of vertical lens shift this projector affords, making it a bit less temperamental during installation.
  • Pros: Wireless HDMI included, Vertical lens shift, Short throw for big image at short distance, Flexible placement, Excellent brightness
  • Cons: Loss of shadow detail, Set up of wireless HDMI is a hassle, Some rainbow effect for sensitive viewers

BenQ W1500 1080p 3D DLP Wireless HDMI Projector Review

12 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Compared to BenQ's entry level 1080p 3D DLP projector (the W1070, which goes for $899 at the BenQ US web store and on Amazon ), the W1500 provides two upgrades. The wireless HDMI is obviously the key differentiator, and will appeal to those that don't want the hassle and cost of installing a long HDMI cable run to the projector. The other feature that differentiates the two is the vertical lens shift adjustment, but, as noted, it's rather limited in range.
  • Pros: Very good test bench performance (in Cinema mode), Long lamp life (3,500 hours in Standard lamp mode, 5,000 hours in Economic mode), Excellent 2D as well as 3D performance, Glitch-free wireless HDMI
  • Cons: Limited vertical lens shift range, Many remote control button labels are hard to discern, Some noticeable off-axis light leakage

BENQ W1500 projector review

2 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Trade-offs. That’s typically what display technology is all about. Fancy crazy-high 4K resolutions, or maybe ultra-fast refresh? Bottom line: you can’t have it all. And if anything, that applies more to projectors than any other display type. On the plus side, there’s certainly nothing as cinematic as a projector.

BenQ W1500 WHDMI Projector Video Review

18 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Wireless projectors have been out for a while, but they haven't been quite this accessible—and they certainly haven't been aimed square at the affordable home theater market. This W1500 wireless DLP projector from BenQ can be had for less than $1600 and it comes with WHDI built right in, and an HDMI dongle that lets you send video wirelessly from any HDMI output. And I mean ANY HDMI output.

Projector reviews
25 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Here’s the very bottom line:   The BenQ W1500 earns our Special Interest Award.  Understand,  terms of picture quality, brightness and several other areas, the W1500 does deserve a Hot Product award, but it comes up short in one area that makes this Special Interest award more suitable.  Before I continue, at the time of this review being published the street price of the W1500 seems to be centered around the $1600 price point in the US.

BenQ W1500 Wireless Projector Preview

22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: It is easy to convince people of the value of a projector. For the same (or similar) price as a large flatscreen TV, a projector will provide two or three times the image size. That's just simple math. Now, add to that the other things projectors bring to the table. Projectors have the sort of wow factor that really elevates a home theater. Many would argue that a home theater isn't a theater at all until a projector is present. Before that, it is just a TV room.

Belépő DLP vetítő, vezeték nélküli HDMI képátvitellel

1 day ago
  • Excerpt: 2014. augusztus A belépő házimozi kategória folyamatosan szűkölködik az igazán jól eltalált modellekben. Emiatt minden újabb próbálkozást szívesen látunk. Próbálunk olyan modelleket tesztelni, amelyek felcsillantják a reményt, hogy a viszonylag olcsó belépő vetítők között találunk házimozira is valóban alkalmas modellt.
