BenQ HT6050 Home Theater Projector Review

Posted on November 15, 2016 by Art Feierman

The BenQ HT6050 is their serious home theater projector with 1080p resolution. 2000 lumens, and a current street price under $3000 (with bundled lens promotion), make the HT6050 the logical replacement for their aging W7500, and one of the lowest cost solutions around offering multiple lens options for non-standard room placement.

The HT6050 is the latest in the HT series which includes the HT2050, HT3050, and HT4050 (click for their reviews).  Over the years BenQ has been a top home theater competitor, known for their single chip DLPs.  Back in the mid-2000s I owned BenQ 720p projectors over a several years.  BTW, I haven't owned a DLP since.  That's because I am of the small minority of folks who are "Rainbow Sensitive", so I go with non-DLP projectors, now that other technologies compete in terms of black levels.  I must point out, though, that I've always been a fan of DLP's color handling, and final picture.

I mentioned the W7500 projector above.  I noticed on some of the preliminary info on the HT6050 that I received online, that the photos were in places, labeled W8000, so I won't be surprised if this projector is selling as the W8000 in some parts of the world.

Enough background, time to get into some details.
