BenQ TK700 4K HDR Short-Throw Gaming Projector Review – Summary

BenQ TK700 from the front

The BenQ TK700 is a 4K gaming projector that retails for $1,499. BenQ has even been known to drop the price to $1,399 on occasions. The DMD Texas Instruments DLP chipset imager does an excellent job reproducing 4K content in HDR and SDR. In addition, the lamp light source is rated to deliver 3,200 ANSI lumens for up to 4,000 hours in Normal mode, 8,000 hours in Smart Eco mode, 10,000 hours in Eco mode, and 15,000 hours in LampSave mode.

The TK700 uses that brightness to project clear 60-inch to 200-inch images. If you do not mind the image being somewhat out of adjustment, the TK700 can project an image as small as 30-inches and as big as 300-inches.

BenQ is undoubtedly targeting the gaming crowd with 4K@60Hz: 16.67ms and 1080p 240Hz: 4.16ms for games where response times matter while gaming. Yet, for the end user also looking for a great home theater experience, BenQ states, “BenQ’s six-segment Color Wheel with DLP BrilliantColor™ Technology makes the projector blends not just the three primary colors, but six – to produce over one billion colors, including hard-to-match natural mid-tones such as sky blue and skin tones, as well as millions of difficult colors throughout the vast range of the color gamut.”

The BenQ TK700 Short-Throw Console Gaming Projector is a win, win! You get a competition-level console gaming projector for your fast-paced gaming needs and a projector with HDR10 and good colors for watching your favorite movies.
