BenQ W1000 Projector Review
BenQ W1000 Projector Brightness
The BenQ W1000 is bright. It is the brightest 1080p projector that’s been through here, measuring an impressive 2179 lumens with the lens set to wide angle. For all other measurements the zoom is at mid point, unless specified.
|Lumen Output and Color Temp at 100 IRE (mid zoom)|
|Dynamic||2113 @ 7435|
|Standard||1392 @ 6376|
|Cinema||1225 @ 6344|
|User 1||same as Standard, with Brilliant Color Off = 644|
|User 2||same as Cinema, with Brilliant Color Off = 565|
|User 3||2089 @ 7433, with Brilliant Color Off = 652|
Due to the limited range of the zoom lens, it doesn’t have a whole lot of affect on brightness
Effect of zoom on lumen output (Cinema mode)
Switching to low lamp power, from full power results in a drop of only 15%, which is not a big drop. Most projectors drop off about 25% give or take, and a few may drop by a full third.
Think this way: The W1000 in Cinema mode, low power, with Brilliant Color on, is still brighter than the Optoma HD20 running at high power. When comparing brightest modes, the BenQ is a fair bit brighter than the Vivitek, and far brighter than the Optoma.
