A convenient “ECO BLANK” button is included on the remote which puts your projector on a dark black screen without turning the unit off completely. Once you press the OK button, your projector instantly resumes normal function, saving you time from powering off and on again.
The “FREEZE” button will come in handy for presentations. Just freeze the projector on the slide that you’re on, pull up another screen on your computer, and resume when you’re ready. This saves your audience from having to see you navigate your computer to pull up new information.
When booting up the BenQ LH730, you’re greeted with the wireless display menu. This screen shows you how to connect to your projector using the optional WiFi dongle. Connection instructions are included for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. Without the optional WiFi dongle, there’s nothing to do on this screen.
Use the MENU button on the remote to pull up the standard menu options. There are six main sections which include Picture, Audio, Display, Installation, System, and Information. Another menu button can be found on the side of the projector, for situations where you don’t have access to the remote.
The picture menu has options for brightness, contrast sharpness and advanced color settings. The different picture modes include Bright, Presentation, Spreadsheet, and Video Conference. The lack of any movie-themed picture modes further solidifies this as a strictly business projector.
The audio menu is very basic, with an option to choose your audio output and volume. Use the display menu to access the 3D settings, HDMI, aspect ratio, and source naming.
The installation menu has plenty of tools for installing and configuring your projector. This is where you’ll find the corner fit, which you can use to fit your image perfectly into a projector screen. The system menu has security, background, menu, networking settings, and more. I recommend extending the menu timeout to never, since the default 20 seconds started to become very intrusive.
