What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ TK800 True 4K UHD HDR Home Entertainment Projector
  • Great projector with fantastic picture quality, colours and brightness.
  • The image is crystal clear with what I would consider good colour, and nice contrast levels.
  • Even on an off-white wall this brightness, contrast & colour were really amazing.
  • I have tested during the day with some good light and even my wife (she is never impressed ) said WOW!
  • No longer does DLP give an annoying rainbow effect. I'm super impressed and would recommend this to anyone who needs a long throw.
BenQ W1700 4K UHD HDR CineHome Projector
  • Colours were natural and had plenty of contrast compared to my old projector.
  • The picture was crisp, clear and without any blurring or shadowing.
  • Its 2,200 lumen lamp gives a very bright image and with what Benq claims to be close to true-colour performance.
  • This projector presents very beautiful images with vibrant colours, both in 1080p and 4k modes.
  • Brilliant 4k picture on this projector, clear, bright and colourful.

What customers say about "Display"
BenQ TK800 True 4K UHD HDR Home Entertainment Projector
  • I currently have it projecting 75 or so inches onto a grey wall (haven't bought a screen just yet) and the quality is pretty damn great.
  • HDR 10 bit and 4K 60hz is working great. In comparison to my Samsung KS7500, the colours are nearly as vivid.
  • This is a great value projector in my opinion, which produces a great picture and is an absolute steal at this price.
  • The image quality is superb on this and so much sharper than my previous 1080p unit.
  • It does have keystone correction which is automatic and works well.
BenQ W1700 4K UHD HDR CineHome Projector
  • I was blown away by the quality, it is no way near the quality output of UHD TVs but you really shouldn't expect this unless you spend serious amount of money.
  • The image quality is fantastic, really is good for the money.
  • The pictures are vibrant, colourful and simply breath-taking. You really can see every detail on the screen, whether that be the lines on someone’s face or the hairs on an animal.
  • The picture was crisp and noticeably better than 1080P sources. There were plenty of options to alter the image.
  • I was astonished at the picture it makes, at how clear and good quality is it.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ TK800 True 4K UHD HDR Home Entertainment Projector
  • The 3D is absolutely stunning in games. I downloaded the Trine 2 demo on my PS4 Pro and was blown away at the amount of depth achievable on a stereoscopic game.
  • The input lag for games is fine, especially if you are used to playing on a TV.
  • Regarding the fan noise, it is fine. When I am actually watching something I cease to notice it at all.
  • Fan noise is pretty good with it only being slightly noticeable when watching anything, there is a quiet mode which literally does what it says.
  • Another feature of this which is rare on 4K projectors is 3D although this is only in 1080p it's still a great thing to have.
BenQ W1700 4K UHD HDR CineHome Projector
  • The fan is very quiet and is hardly noticeable thanks to the built-in 5W speaker, which I found to be surprisingly good.
  • It has great 3D capabilities as well for those where this is a requirement.
  • The 3D function also makes it more special.
  • The sound from the one 5W speaker is acceptable. Picture adjustments easy to use and clear menu system.
  • The real issue was the system noise - there was a loud high pitched whine which sounded like I had tinnitus - absolutely ruined the overall experience.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
BenQ TK800 True 4K UHD HDR Home Entertainment Projector
  • Dual HDMI inputs are useful, although I only use one most of the time, so it's great you can tell the device not to scan all it's inputs.
  • I love that it works as a smart Tv and can be connected to all of my subscriptions like netlix and now TV.
  • I love that you can use your phone as a remote, making it even easier to use.
  • Inputs can be set manually as either of two HDMI sockets (HDCP 2.2 and HDCP 1.4) or RS-232, or automatically sensing the input.
  • It also supports HDMI so you can use anything with this type of connection. I've been using it a lot with my Chromecast and my Nintendo Switch and the picture quality is superb.
BenQ W1700 4K UHD HDR CineHome Projector
  • Stunning visuals, I had play UHD movies and TV shows, played 4K game using Xbox One X.
  • There are two HDMI connections, one is dedicated for 4K input. A USB, which we use to power a cheap soundbar. Another mini USB input, an old school VGA input for a laptop.
  • We don’t have a dedicated blu-ray DVD player, but we dug out our son’s old PS3 and watched some blu-rays from that. Again, amazing quality.
  • You get a 12V trigger to connect to an electric screen; mine’s manual though.
  • I connected my Fire TV box directly to HDMI1 of the projector and it played 4K HDR content from Netflix with no problem.
