  • Summary: I work at a movie theater, and I still prefer coming home to watch movies on this projector. On my 135" screen the picture can be seen clearly midday with only diffusing shades pulled down. This would have been a 5 egg review if not for the iris.
  • Pros: Bright, clear image. Huge variety of inputs, and its easy enough to use, even the most technologically impaired could operate it.
  • Cons: Its DLP, which means it rainbows. Depending on screen size and sensitivity to DLP rainbow, some people might be annoyed by this. The iris is so loud that I had to turn it off.

w6000 noisy but great pic

  • Pros: The picture is very crisp and bright. I have a lot of ambient light and I can still see the picture very clearly. I've mainly been watching movies and haven't noticed any issues with action scenes. However I have yet to watch any sports
  • Cons: The thing is noisy. I have it mounted overhead and during quiet scenes it is noticeable. Also the iris is rather noisy when changes to darker scenes. Much to my wife's chagrin, I keep the volume up. So I only hear the projector noises during the pauses in sound. I could see how this additional no...

Great for well lit areas

  • Summary: I bought this projector for use in an outdoor home theatre installation and was more than pleased with not only the light output, but also the quality of the picture (paired with a blu-ray source). I expected a greater loss of fidelity in exchange for the additional lumens but that wasn't the case.

Very nice!

  • Summary: I was looking for a projector that could produce a high quality image in a room with plenty of ambient light. After a lot of research I decided in favor of Benq W6000. The projector sits on a shelf about 26 feet away from the screen and is still able to deliver a bright and high quality image, in...

Nice machine - but noticeable DLP rainbow effect

TD1956, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a really bright projector and projects very sharp images. Needed quite a bit of color adjustment out of the box but I got it to look really good. However, the DLP rainbow effect was very noticeable to both me and my son on this machine.

Terrific projector, but one flaw for me

Paul E. Heroy "Paul Heroy", Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using a front projection setup for several years now, starting with a serendipitous purchase of an NEC LT150 that was a "price mistake" find. After getting it and figuring out how to mount it, put up a screen and run cables in the ceiling with a friend's help, I've been hooked on the true...

Bright, Crisp, No Rainbows

T. Harty, Amazon

  • Summary: If you are in a situation where you have ambient light, or a large screen to fill this projector fits the bill. The important part is the six segment color wheel. A lot of DLP projectors with this type of light output will cheat and use a seven segment wheel. The Seventh segment is white.

  • Excerpt: Was bisher geschah: ================ Warum der W6000 ? ================ Bisherige Geräte von Benq waren mir nun entweder zu teuer oder zu lichtschwach. Eine Zeitlang spielte ich mit dem Gedanken, ein WXGA Gerät für etwa 1800 Euro anzuschaffen, doch als der W6000 herauskam, erschien er das richtige...
