Review – BenQ W7000 Projector

Hi all!

I was able to sit down last week and test BenQ’s flagship projector, the W7000.  At ~$2500, it is a direct competitor to the Epson 5010.  I’m glad I was able to look at these two projectors soon enough after one another to make a proper comparison.  The W7000 projector throws a super bright and extremely sharp image and also includes features like 3D and frame interpolation.  Input lag has been a topic of concern with many of the newer projector models, read on to find out how this projector measures up in the game room!

Review – Epson 5010e Projector

Hey all!

It’s been a little while since I’ve had my hands on any new projectors, and I was really hoping Art would allow me to get my hands on this one.   Up until receiving the Epson 5010e, I had primarily looked at projectors in the  $700 -$1400 range.   The Epson 5010 retails for ~$2999 and I can tell you – it certainly performs like a projector in that price range.   I took a look at the Epson 5010′s younger brother (Epson 3010), and I really liked the image quality, but it suffered from a bit too much input lag to recommend for any serious gaming.   I can say that the Epson 5010e is superior to the 3010 in nearly every fashion.    Read on to find out more on how the Epson 5010e holds up in the game room.

Game Review – Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I have been waiting for this release since I first read about it a very long time ago.  Oblivion was one of my favorite games for XBOX360 and remains among the top games in my favorites list.  No other game at the time had such freedom of game-play or massively beautiful landscapes as Oblivion.   Finally, five years later, Skyrim takes the open world RPG genre to the next level and proudly presents itself as a worthy addition to the Elder Scrolls series.   Read on for my detailed look at this marvelous game.
