Summary: Update: I took away one star as I had to return the projector after 6 hours of viewing due to excessive rainbow artifacts. I could see rainbows during actual scenes (My wife, who has never seen the rainbows on the old projector said she did notice them on the W6000 but they were not bothersome to her). It is a real pity as the picture quality is simply AMAZING and the brightness makes it perfect for any room. This projector is physically huge compared with my old 4805.

Summary: I purchased the Benq W6000 from Amazon after previously owning a Benq PE8700+ (which was sold with my old house and I think I paid $3700 for it years ago). I set up this new home theater with two front BIC 15-inch woofer speakers RTR1530's - and they are big but just $109 each;, Polk Audio Monitor 50 side units for $102.50 each free ship, and I used older BIC's that I had rebuilt with 12inch woofers for my rear speakers.
Summary: I purchased this projector earlier in January directly from Benq. Upon initial physical inspection I'd say this is a large projector, a little plasticky and funky looking with a mostly black box a dark purple shinny insert and the unneserarily oversized lense attachment for zoom/focus....ok now for the real disapointment..as previously reviewed everywhere you need to spend a bit of time 3:30 hrs in my case to dial in all the colors properly...once that is done...
Excerpt: After doing a thorough research I listed a few projectors in its range, and after reading hundreds of forum threads, time and time over again people seem to majorly recommend the W6000 as the best in its range for brightness and HD quality. I finally decided to go for it and stop being so cautious so I bought it at a dealer with a 14 day no reason return policy hahaha. I needed the policy just in case I didn’t like it.
Pros: Extremely Bright, Great Contrast and Blacks, Full HD, Lens Shift,
Summary: In punkto Bildqualität gibt es keine Mängel, da kann ich mich allen Vorrednern nur anschließen. Sogar der normale DVD-Player, angeschlossen über SVHS hatte ein sehr gutes und auch bei gedimmter Raumbeleuchtung ausreichend helles und farbintensives Bild. Leider war die Geräuschkulisse nicht erträglich. Der Beamer im Leerlauf - d.h. angeschaltet und BenQ Testbild wird angezeigt - hatte lediglich das übliche Lüftergeräusch, im Eco-Modus sollten es 29 dB sein.
