Official street pricing is $1099, although expect to find lower prices up to $100 lower online. That seems to put the projector at about $100-200 higher than the W1070 that it is replacing.
The HT1075 is a single chip DLP projector that has a manual zoom and focus lens with a 1.3:1 zoom ratio. That provides some basic front to back placement flexibility. It’s as much or more than most projectors around its price, but some do offer far more range.
One of the relatively unique features of the HT1075 for the price is that it offers a small amount of vertical lens shift, same as the W1070 before it. That’s rare on DLP projectors at this price point, but there are 3LCD type projectors with more zoom and a lot more lens shift, if needed. Hey, there are always trade-offs, especially in this near entry level price range.
There are plenty of inputs and connectors on the back of this BenQ projector. The remote control is a nice one, with a very bright red LED backlight. We’ll cover all of that on the Hardware Tour page.
As you certainly expected, the HT1075 supports all the usual 3D formats, including Blu-ray’s frame packing. BenQ has stayed with DLP-Link for communication between the projector and the 3D glasses. Not our favorite solution, but it does keep the cost down. There are plenty of low cost 3rd party “universal” 3D glasses that will work with the BenQ.
