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 video-processing is impressive. There's only one major downfall: The overscan crops all input signals to some extent, and cannot be switched off.
  • Pros: Contrast-rich picture., High resolution., High-quality video processing, including 24p., Electronic lens-shift.
  • Cons: The user cannot completely deactivate overscan., Factory setup has some color errors.

BenQ W5000 DLP Projector Review

23 July 2008
  • Conclusion: 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. The BenQ W5000 is going to rival some more expensive projectors and certainly beats out the Epson 1080UB in terms of its ability to reproduce deep rich blacks.
  • 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. Packing some serious punch with an advertised contrast ratio of 10,000:1, 1200 ANSI lumens, a fully displayable palette of 1.07 billion colors, an image size ranging from 40 to 300 inches, and full, 1080P HD glory, BenQ certainly brought out the big guns this time.
  • 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 pin drop, Despite its size, it brings great style-value to any room, Backlit remote that doubles as an emergency flashlight or roadside flare (yes, it’s very bright), Out-of-b...
  • 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 playing a game like certain other projectors, While some will still argue that DLP projector technology offers up a pastel-type image, this is really all a matter of taste, as s...

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

  • Conclusion: W5000和Cinema 1080 UB有着一些共同的特征。两机都兼容1080p/24,虽然这点没有在W5000官方发布的规格中提到。两机都有需要定期维护的空气过滤器。在优化后的影院模式下,两者具有可以相互比较的流明输出,以及不分上下的风扇噪音�D�D两者都很低。 连接性在两个型号上几乎一样。都有两组HDMI端口,一组3-RCA分量视频端口,一组S-video端口,一组复合视频输入,以及一个12伏触发器。唯一区别是除此之外W5000提供了一个5-BNC端口,而Cinema 1080 UB则是一个标准VGA端口。 出厂模式设置下,我们的两台测试样机都偏绿,因此需要一些较准使其运行在最佳状态。如果你向家庭影院投影机投资了这样一笔钱,那么你很可能会请人对投影机进行专业调校,从而让投影机能够在你独有的视听环境和屏幕条件下发挥出最佳性能。 结论...
