BenQ W7000 Projector: Pros and Cons

BenQ W7000 Projector: Pros

  • 3D capable
  • Single chip DLP provides pretty clean 3D
  • Excellent calibrated color and skin tones
  • Very good black level performance – true “ultra high contrast”
  • Rich colors, especially on darker scenes
  • Very good placement flexibility
  • Very good black level performance (but not the best)
  • Picture in Picture
  • True Video – CFI – smooth motion, good for sports and other non-film based content)
  • 2 HDMI 1.4a (Blu-ray 3D compatible) inputs
  • Excellent remote control, with good backlight and range
  • 3D Works with 3rd party glasses
  • Excellent value proposition

BenQ W7000 Projector: Cons

  • Below average lamp life for higher operational costs (a price, in this case, paid for all that brightness)
  • A noisier projector than average, at full power, although typical of most DLP projectors and a few LCD and LCoS projectors
  • Lacks second HDMI circuit to allow two HDMI sources for Split Screen, would be much better
  • No 3D glasses included at the price
  • BenQ 3D glasses are a bit larger and heavier than most
  • Color wheel is 6 segment, but only 4X speed. That will have more rainbow sensitive people noticing rainbows more often than on the 5X wheels typical of more expensive DLPs, still I rarely spotted any rainbows

Fini!
