BenQ W1100

 

BenQ's W1100 offers some startling specs for its money, and is a great option for people who can't black out their rooms. More serious users may do better elsewhere, though.

Great price for the spec on offer, High brightness makes it usable in ambient light, Plenty of calibration tools

Images are a touch noisy, slightly washed out black levels, Predictably there’s no optical image shift
