Summary: I bought a BenQ W600 a couple of years and after 2 years started showing dead white pixels. The repair bill is about 300 $ because DMD chip need to be replaced. It's a good value projector but with no reliability and no durability.
Summary: Personal Experience Very handy and userfriendly. Very good and bright image quality and not too noisy. After 1.5 year there came lots of dead pixels (white spots) in the mittle of the image. BenQ do not pay anything - sÃ¥ very expensive repair. Very disappointed and will not buy BenQ again.
Summary: I bought a BenQ W600 a couple of years back for my home theater for $699. It is a great projector and has been put to use almost daily with no problems. BlueRay is truly amazing on it. I am buying another one since it is available for $449 for another location in my house.
Summary: Personal Experience At first I was very happy with this purchase but...DMD chip fail after 1.5 years, or 1900 lamp hours. the low scores would be high if the DMD chip had not failed or if BenQ would have backed up their product.
Summary: Personal Experience Overall good projector. grate image. this is my third projector after Infocus x1 and Benq w100. Problems The DLP (DMD) device fail after 1500 hours. Many whith dots on the screen that are increcing every use. The device is out of warrenty. and fixing it cost almost as a new one.
Summary: Operating projector at 5600ft on low altitude mode, and have not detected any problems after 1000+ hours. All DLP based projectors may produce "rainbow effect" depending on viewers perception.
Pros: Met expectations precisely. Very efficient for the price.
Summary: The projector is great for watching movies and playing games.Best bang for your money.Skin tones in factory color modes are a little/tiny off (nothing to complain about,just ppl lips a little redder) ..but with good calibration..it shows great.....bluray looks really really fantastic.
Summary: Not sure why a speaker would be included, very low volume and tinny.
Pros: Easy setup, good 720p picture, great deal on Newegg. Quiet in normal mode.
Cons: Fan very noisy in high altitude mode. I live in AZ mountains at 6500 ft, manufacturers reccommendation is to use high altitude mode over 1500m (about 5000 ft). Limited zoom capabilty, be careful about your planned projector and screen mounting positions and make sure this will work for you. I got...
Summary: movies seem more epic on 100" plus screen.....if you are on the fence just go for it and figure it out on the way.......(well thats what im doing) still havent figured out where i'm gonna set it up permanently
Pros: for the price you get 720p on size of your choice......
Cons: loses source signal once in a while seen rainbow effect when watching cloverfield.....
Summary: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT ON DRYWALL OR CANVIS
Pros: This thing is freakin AWESOME!!! my friend has a project as well and this one blows his away by far. its clearer, crisper and has more inputs then his. I just bought a 55" Element LCD tv. and i have a better picture on this projector. Good job BENQ
