Summary: This has to be one of the best bang for your buck deal in Projectors! The picture is amazing, the blacks are great, very true after adjusting. We can even use with the 2 fluorescent light ballasts going!
Summary: Personal Experience A little late with review but wanted to make sure my review Would be accurate. The HD 23 is one fine projector by just About any standard you want to use. Add the price point and It's just superb. Blacks are deep and rich equalling units 2 to 3 times or more in price. Contrast IMHO are better than specs would indicate.
Summary: I was looking for an entry level 1080p projector for my apartment that my roommates and I could kick back and watch movies or play games on. I purchased this refurbished with only like 8 hours on it to save some money, and I'm not disappointed with my purchase at all. Out of the box the quality is great, and once you calibrate the colors and viewing modes appropriately it looks incredible.
Summary: with all the various resolutions this projector is capable of doing, to put it simple ... It just plain works. It is constantly scanning for connected devices and outputs the proper resolution every time. Perfect for a conference room or boardroom up to 20 feet long, but not for anything much larger than that.
Summary: I have owned two high end lcd projectors and they have both had lcd block failure. This time I decided to go with a dlp projector. I started with the optoma hd33 3d projector. I loved the picture, just decided against the 3d after watching a few movies. The glasses were expensive and kind of a pain. So, I returned it and bought a benq projector due to the good reviews. I powered it up and it was horrible... I ran it for 30 minutes and put it back in the box.
