BenQ PE8720 720p DLP Projector

 

BenQ's PE8720 has been on the market for some time. And at an MSRP of $6,999, it's perilously close to (or even above) the prices of some of the new 1080p models. But we've seen it priced as low as $4,000 online.

BenQ PE8720 720p DLP Projector

 

With all the hullabaloo about the new 1080p projectors, some of them at prices lower than any of us dreamed possible only a few months ago, is there any point in reviewing a mid-priced 720p design?

Bright, sharp image with realistic detail Motorized zoom, focus, and lens shift Good performance on both standard and high-definition

720p in an increasingly 1080p market

Review: BenQ PE8720 Home Theater Projector

 

BenQ's latest projector has been in the works for some time. Announced at CES 2005 a year ago, the PE8720 started shipping in the fall. With a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and a super-high quality lens, the BenQ PE8720 can bring a dazzling picture into your...

BenQ PE8720

 

For those of you who haven't read the full projector review, the BenQ PE8720 home theater projector is "powered" by TI's DarkChip 3 DLP. The projector retails for $7999, is rated 1000 lumens, and claims an impressive contrast ratio of 10,000:1. In...

Extremely Sharp image ; Vibrant colors (good color saturation) ; Bright enough for larger screens ; Excellent reproduction of flesh tones ; Extremely good verall color accuracy (out of the box!) ; Truly excellent black levels ; Lots of image control ;...

Overly large projector ; Would have liked to see a 2nd HDMI input ; Manual - has what you need for setup, but doesn't explain well many advanced features, and when some of those features, are available, and when they are not ; Lens shift (yes it has...

If you are torn between those under $5000 projectors available online, and the $10,000+ models available only through local dealers, this new home theater projector from BenQ appears to deliver that $10K+ performance at a definitely more affordable price
