BenQ W1200 Projector – Image Quality-6

BenQ W1200 Projector: Bottom Line on HDTV Sports

The W1200 is great on sports. The home theater projector has a very sharp image combined with CFI for smooth motion, and colors that really pop. Although the W1200 is brighter than average in its brightest modes, it isn’t a light canon. There are others with more sheer horsepower, but as far as the 1100+ good looking sports lumens go, the W1200 is great. The $7K Runco LS-5 the W1200 is sharing the table with, has better color and better blacks and better everything, but with an extra 400 lumens, when I switch to the W1200 with a NBA playoff game on, everyone goes “wow”. – See more at: http://live-projector-reviews.pantheonsite.io/benq/benq-w1200-projector-image-quality-5/#sthash.JkLZWDqb.dpuf

The room lighting around my dark floors/walls/ceiling was shutters partially open. In addition, seven 50 watt equivalent down facing LED lights are on in the back half of the room, and along with incoming light from the windows, lights up the couch. It’s plenty bright in the back of the room despite the surfaces being very dark. A fair amount of ambient light is hitting the screen and you can see that it’s washing out the image a bit. It’s still a good looking image though. I wouldn’t normally have the shutters anywhere near that open for real watching, and I’d still have plenty of light to work with in the back.

Above and below, two identical photos except for the exposure. The first of the pair gives you a reasonable idea of the room lighting.

The second looks darker so that you can get a better idea of how good the picture actually looked.

More importantly take a look at another HDTV NFL image. Most impressive:
