BENQ PB6100 and PB6200 Projector Review

Excellent Image Quality at a GREAT PRICE!


I always wanted a home theater projector (not a bulky rear-screen) but was kept away by the high prices ($5000 - $10000) and then I found this... I've had this for about a week, and I couldn't be happier with the picture quality - it TRULY is like...

Two thumbs up!!!


As always, I am very pleased with service. The BenQ PB6100 DLP projector's performance has been a pleasant surprise, although I've had this projector for only 2 days. Vice-City and Unreal Tournament 2004 look mind-boggling! The DVD movies...
