BenQ PE7800


The PE7800 comes with the same fully backlit remote as the PE8700. It has an excellent layout, but more on that later

Natural image, the projector seems transparent ; Excellent color ; Inexpensive for what it delivers ; Plenty of inputs, including DVI with HDCP ; Great remote, easy to use, backlit ; Good menus ; Great 3 year warranty ; 3 Stored user settings ; POP ?...

Matterhorn chip not quite as hi-res as the 1280x720 Mustang HD2+ used in most, more expensive DLP HT projectors ; No (adjustable) optical lens shift ; Zoom lens could have more range (it's only 1.2:1) but only an issue if it won't work distance wise,...

The projector?s contrast ratio is stated as 2000:1, very typical for HT DLP projectors

Everyone that sees the picture from this projector is absolutely amazed. Two of our friends also bought one from Newegg after they visited us. I especially enjoyed the reaction from my friend that had already dropped $4k-plus on a plasma - he couldn't...

None so far

Fantastic, especially for the $


This is just a fantastic projector. I just watched my first NFL pre-season game with my projector, and was blown away by the picture quality, and, of course, size! See for the best reviews I found on this projector.

For my needs, the picture is truly great. The 16:9 native resolution in perfect for movies and HD channels. Worth every penny for the price (and I paid a lot more than it currently is listed for)

Not great with a lot of outside light. You have to manually switch between input types with your remote
