BenQ W1090 review


This projector gives an eye-popping, vibrant picture that grabs your attention

Rich and effusive colour palette ; Deep blacks ; Crisp and detailed picture ; Easy to set up and use ; Backlit remote

Some noise and motion instability issues ; Colour balance could be more natural ; Rivals offer a brighter, subtler picture

This budget projector delivers an eye-popping, vibrant picture that’s sure to grab your attention

BenQ W1090 DLP Projector Review


We take a look at yet another budget single-chip DLP projector from BenQ which offers big screen action for under £700. Is it any good?

Good all rounder ; Good picture presets that are accurate out of the box ; Excellent 3D performance ; Good gaming lag at 33ms ; Very good motion for sports viewing ; Portable and has optional wireless HD capability ; Accurate colours and greyscale...

Weak black levels and shadow details ; Not a home cinema projector ; Loud fan noise ; Some rainbow effect still noticeable

There are many things to like about the current crop of budget DLP models from BenQ and the W1090 is no exception. At £700 it offers a decent performance as an all-rounder for the typical living room for big screen gaming, sports viewing and 3D movies....
