BenQ W3000 review

 

This affordable, feature-packed projector is a great way to supersize your screen

Accurate colour reproduction ; Decent insight and contrast ; Good upscaler ; Easy, flexible set-up ; Compact build

BenQ W3000

 

The £1,099 W3000 is the second projector I've seen from BenQ to use the brand's new Cinematic Color technology, for accurately hitting the Rec. 709 video standard right out of the box. It uses better lens glass than the previous model, BenQ W2000...

BenQ W3000 DLP Projector Review

 

BenQ have a new top model in their budget DLP projector line-up and this one promises Rec.709 colour with it's Full HD images.

Gets close to Rec.709 out-of-the-box ; Good greyscale performance out-of-the-box ; Can be calibrated quite accurately to the standards ; Decent motion handling and video processing ; Good input lag for gamers ; Great 3D performance ; Good all round...

Weak black levels ; Still quite noisy even in Eco mode ; Some rainbow effect ; Shadow detail performance is poor

We always seem to start wrapping up with the negatives but that is merely to manage expectations when it comes to picture quality from a budget projector like the W3000. The message is simple and at this price point it doesn’t matter what projector...

Fantastic

 

I have this projector set up with 110inch celexon screen, Sony BDP-S7200 player, an old Sony 5.1 amp with BW speakers. The room is about 5.2 by 4.3 with projector ceiling mounted. The system is really only used for films and net flix series, No games....

Overall a great projector.

 

This is my second projector and is a good step up from my previous slightly cheaper one. The black levels are acceptable with some good detail in darker scenes. The image is just bright enough for viewing during the day if your room is not light...

Cinema quality colours

 

I have this projected onto a white wall and am blown away by the quality of the picture, particularly the colour reproduction. I'm using this solely to watch Blu Ray films, and while it can be a little sketchy in the shadow detailing department (that...

Great 2D, Poor 3D

 

I purchased this recently and was immediately impressed by the short throw distance (100" at only 2.5m) and great picture quality adhering to rec 709 straight out the box. It really is a great projector, up until you try 3D… This may be an issue with...
