Summary: I've had projectors going back about 10 years, all costing more than the BenQ, most many times as much. But the BenQ really holds its own and is a great value. Picture is very good, good reds, good blacks and shadows considering the also good brightness and relative budget price. I like how fast the projector turns on and off and the long bulb life. Have had zero issues and a lot of fun with this projector.
Summary: Personal Experience I just got this yesterday, but i just wanted to say how much i love this projector already. I previously had an Optoma HD65--and its like night and day. I'm getting a larger projected screen than the optoma and its sitting in the same spot. The colors are EXTREMELY vibrant and i've never seen whites so white before. I feel like i've been living in the dark ages for the past 2 years. I'm so glad i purchased this on woot for less than $500.
Summary: Personal Experience I just got this projector on sale from woot. For the price I paid I couldnt have asked for a better projector. Colors look really good and the 2200 lumans really makes a difference in a living room with some ambient light. I am using this on a .8 gain high contrast screen. So far I am really happy. Problems The power cable that came with the projector doesnt work very well. It was wiggily and cause the projector to shut off a couple of times.
Summary: Personal Experience This will actually be my third projector starting March of this year. Yeah, I really havenâ€™tâ€™ had a great first experience with projectors at all, had lots of problems. Although I always believed that it was pure bad luck and tend to have good faith in the companies regardless, because out of everyone else I know, Iâ€™m the only one that seems to strike bad luck to this extent.
Summary: This is a fantastic machine! I've never owned a projector before and the price can vary so greatly on these things, that making a decision on which to chose can be pretty daunting. I believe that the BenQ W700 could possibly be the best projector for this sort of money... Pay less and you're likely to lose quality of picture & standard of build... Pay more and you could be spending over the odds on a product that is no better than this one.
Summary: great projector! bright enough even with the light on. easy to set up, great colour, nice look. It's the best projector you can get in this price range. (Buy from amazon warehouse deal, like new is actually new, with lots cheaper).
Summary: Fantastic projector! My sons wanted a large tv for their games room this Christmas so we decided to give them a really big screen! This projector was a great choice, very easy to set up, the picture quality is excellent, a great HD picture with the ability for 3D too. Used together with an LG surround sound system (also bought from Amazon) and their various games consoles it feels like we have our very own cinema and the boys almost feel as if they are part of the games...
Summary: O.M.G !!!! what a machine !! i was blown away with the quality of picture just on a white wall.this is my first projector and iam over the moon with it ,iam running a panasonic blu ray and surround sound system and its better than going to the flicks !! my 7 year old loves playing the ps3 through it and so do i !!
