BenQ W6500 review


It might be short on looks, but the BenQ W6500 is a fine projector, although there are definitely issues with motion

Easy to use and set-up ; good detail and natural colours ; sharp edges

Struggles with fast motion ; black detail could be better

There’s much to admire here, but it’s not quite the complete package
