What customers say about "Display"
BenQ W1070
  • The item itself gave a really sharp image which was really good and blew me away.
  • Colours are rich, image is very detailed and even projected directly onto a wall looks good. On a screen, it's a fantastic experience.
  • We have it projecting onto a 120" screen, easily viewable in a lit room, in a dim room it's very watchable and in a darkened room it's addictive.
  • Great quality. The best projector for the money. Picture is absolutely outstanding.
  • Fantastic projector brilliant quality picture and easy to set up.
BenQ W1080ST 2000 Lumens DLP HD 3D Projector
  • I have it in my living room and it projects a 2.5m screen no problem.
  • For the first time I have been able to distinguish between HD and non HD. It really is fantastic.
  • Trialled a BenQ W1080ST at Bath Richer Sounds and was immediately sold on the quality and crispness (and size) of the picture.
  • Early days, but the picture in 2D and 3D is vivid and colourful.
  • The colors and detail level darn near rival my 70" Sony! I was very impressed.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ W1070
  • The 3D performance. DLP lives up to its promise with zero artifacts or crosstalk and a beautiful image that is full of depth and stunning positive and negative parallax effects.
  • I projected on a white wall initially and then I bought a screen, it was great on both. The 3d is for me better than the cinema.
  • The 3d is like the cinema, together with my 100 inch projector screen i got a great set now!
  • Have used everyday. Perfect for movies and gaming.
  • With 3D, it is using 2 images on the screen in slightly different places and when they are viewed through 3D glasses the screen just disappears - it is beautiful!
BenQ W1080ST 2000 Lumens DLP HD 3D Projector
  • It is also fairly quiet - don't really notice the fan noise at all. I would recommend to anyone who would like a large TV.
  • Watched the 'Titanic: 100 years in 3D' and this looked amazing.
  • Top Gun' looks awesome in 3D on a 90" screen, as does Titanic. Just as good with 2D blu-rays as well.
  • The short throw lens will allow me to use it in the house for a 114" picture at reasonable distance.
  • Perfect, vibrant colors, 3D capability, amazing short throw specs.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
BenQ W1070
  • Giant fifa with the lads or just any ps4 game and I've used my chromecast with it for BT sport to watch footy!
  • Two HDMI hookups. Also has VGA, audio in/out etc.
  • Works very well with Mac (with mandatory overpriced adapter of course) and PC.
  • It has both HDMI and 15HD VGA inputs plus a whole lot more.
  • I use it in my man cave for movies and for xbox 360/xbox one/ps3.
BenQ W1080ST 2000 Lumens DLP HD 3D Projector
  • We have it attached to the Xbox, sound system and Steam Link (so lots of cables). Everything is easy to attach and set-up but this is more convenient.
  • This projector gets left on all day and night and is used for TV, DVD, XBOX, blu ray, 3d movies etc, etc and every thing comes through crystal clear.
  • I'm running this projector off of a Mac Mini with an HDMI connection and it works flawlessly.
  • The image is crisp, setup is easy, it supports various sources (2 x HDMI and a VGA is more than enough for most setups) and the short throw can be quite useful.
  • I have used the VGA and HDMI cables and in both cases the projected image is impressive.
