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. Problems After 1.5 year there came lots of dead pixels (white spots) in the mittle of the image.

Summary: I have had this Benq W600 for over 2 years, using it for home theatre, mobile cinema and portable business presentation purposes. It has worked very well for me, with very good brightness and great picture detail via the 720p spec for motion video performance. My only disappointment, as other reviewers have reported, is that contrary to the initial manufacturer claims, the unit is not in fact 3D ready - BenQ have since withdrawn the claim and, and the product was later...
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. Go for it, you won't go wrong with this one.
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. Problems DMD chip fail after 1.5 years, or 1900 lamp hours Its about $500 for BenQ to fix or $150 for the chip.
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. Very dissapointed. did not think that after 1.5 year the device is no use. Never had this problem with my previos dlp projectors.
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..Easy user interface..Two hdmi is great as well.Shows great in day with ambient light .... Like a normal lcd tv...No rainbow effect since it has a 3x color wheel.nice remote ..
Summary: Had this projector for around three years. Worked ok until white dots started to appear on the screen. It started with one and then more and more, there are hundreds now. When it first happened I emailed customer support. They asked for a picture, which I sent. That was in early July, no response.
Summary: I bought this in March 2010 and I have had no problems with it at all. I like the 720p resolution, but my next projector will be 1080p. The picture looks great and the contrast and brightness is wonderful. If this had any problems, I would have found them by now. The only improvement I would suggest is a quicker turn on time, but my last projector was slow too. It's probably just a limitation with the bulbs. edit: Hundreds of dead pixels. yay.
Summary: This projector is described as 3D ready, but it's not. Take a look at the manual (pdf included on Amazon's page). It has "3D color management," which has nothing to do with "3D ready" (BenQ's website describes what "3D color management" actually means). The price should also be a tipoff. Please ignore the 3 stars I gave it, as a rating is required to do a post, and I don't want to give it high or low marks.
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.
