BenQ W7000+ home theatre projector

 

BenQ's updated home theatre projector has good 3D and great 2D

Excellent 2D and 3D image quality ; Wide lens shift, keystone, adjustment for setup

Uncomfortable 3D glasses ; Black level slightly high in preset modes

BenQ’s lightly-updated W7000+ home theatre projector has generally good image quality credentials, especially considering its comparatively accessible price tag. The 3D glasses bundled are not at all comfortable, though, and you can get better picture...

BenQ W7000 Full-HD 3D Home Cinema Projector Preview

 

Incorporating many of the latest technologies, the BenQ W7000 certainly looks to be a lot of features for the money. With a MSRP of just under $4k, it could be a wallet buster those on a budge though.

The BenQ W7000 sports a lot of the technology in the bigger, more expensive BenQ projectors. But that doesn't mean it is cheap. With a MSRP of just under $4k, it could be a wallet-buster for an Audioholic on a budget. We've already seen the projector's...
