BenQ W5000

19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The BenQ W5000 gives you a lot of projector for the price. The "Dynamic Black" mode renders an impressive contrast ratio, with visible improvements in depth and dynamism. It's easy to forgive the slight deviations in an otherwise natural-looking color reproduction, and the quality of the optics and...

BenQ W5000 DLP Projector Review

23 July 2008
  • Summary: The street price of this projector is around half its retail. Given the quality and level of sharpness this system is capable of - plus the excellent Blacks it can produce thanks to its dual iris system - it's hard not to take notice.
  • Pros: Support for anamorphic aspect ratio, Excellent post-calibration performance, Great value given street pricing
  • Cons: Anemic 1.2x zoom lens, No horizontal lens shift, Poor out-of-the-box performance, Overscan anomaly with SD material

BenQ W5000 Home Theater Video Projector Review

Projector US
23 June 2008
  • Excerpt: For the serious cinema, sports, or even gaming enthusiast, BenQ’s latest offering – the W5000 1080HD DLP home theatre video projector – is fully equipped to deliver a very solid and satisfying experience.
  • Pros: Utilizes full, 1080P HD resolution, for the ultimate home theatre experience, Exceptional contrast ratio (advertised as 10,000:1) leaves the competition weak in the knees, Blacks are black, whites are white, and everything in-between looks vivid and sharp, Quiet enough during operation to hear a ...
  • Cons: While projector is big and bulky and heavy, it's also strong and sturdy, capable of delivering professional performance at consumer-valued pricing, Iris repositioning sound during picture preset mode changes can be a little distracting at first, but this does NOT occur when watching a movie or pl...

  • Conclusion: I’m getting rather repetitive. This BenQ always impresses overall. Good color accuracy, very good black levels, great shadow detail, and a really sharp image, provide a great overall viewing experience.

BenQ W5000, un viejo conocido

PC Actual
14 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Este proyector es un «viejo conocido» de los técnicos del Laboratorio de PC Actual. Y es que hace más de un año tuvimos ocasión de analizarlo en profundidad en la comparativa de soluciones Full HD que publicamos en abril de 2008
  • Pros: Ofrece una tasa de contraste estupenda que solo se ve ligeramente enturbiada en condiciones exigentes, Su calidad de imagen global es muy elevada
  • Cons: Su zoom no ofrece un margen de maniobra holgado a la hora de colocarlo, por lo que es necesario hilar fino para controlar con precisión la distancia que lo separa de la pantalla, Es voluminoso y bastante pesado, por lo que requiere un soporte robusto para ser colgado del techo
