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
Excerpt: F or a long time the only way to get a really big image at home was to have a front projector — TV sizes greater than 50-inches being scant and expensive. But since large flat-panel TVs are now plentiful and far from exorbitant, what’s the value for getting a projection system? The answer is to envelop the viewer in the big “movie theater” experience that was the hope to attain for home viewing in the first place.
Pros: ISF certified calibration control, 2D to 3D conversion, Picture-in-Picture
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.
Summary: W1500 has great picture quality both in 2D as well as the 3D; the short throw capability and other built in features make it a perfect home entertainment projector. It’s also one of the few projectors in the market today to have wireless HDMI, though with a few glitches. • Full HD 3D • Short throw • Wireless HDMI input • Vertical lens shift • Wireless HDMI not up to the mark • No bundled 3D glasses BenQ has a wide range of projectors to cater to the needs of every...
Pros: Full HD 3D , Short throw , Wireless HDMI input , Vertical lens shift
Cons: Wireless HDMI not up to the mark , No bundled 3D glasses
Summary: Kaum ausgepackt, macht der BenQ W1500 direkt Spaß; er ist ruck, zuck auf- und eingestellt, dank des umfangreichen Farbmanagements und der hervorragenden Voreinstellungen. Der WHDI-Dongle ist das i-Tüpfelchen; zuverlässiger und schneller ist kaum eine Drahtlosverbindung für 3D und Full HD möglich.
Belépő DLP vetítő, vezeték nélküli HDMI képátvitellel
16 September 2014
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.
