BenQ W5000 DLP 1080P Home Theater Projector Review - Image Quality-4

October 30, 2013

So close.Bottom line: The W5000 does offer very good black levels but not as good as the Epson Home Cinema 1080 UB (or the Pro version for that matter).




Comparing black levels to the Sony is a bit tougher, as the Sony we reviewed was unevenly illuminated, with heavy blue in the upper right and lower left. Overall, with a properly working Sony, these two are probably just about a tie. When it comes to shadow detail, the BenQ W5000 is excellent.

The BenQ manages to maintain very good black levels without sacrificing the shadow detail. In this regard, it does reveal a little more shadow detail than the Epson. Still, the Epson, on mixed scenes, based on my side by side looks, creates a more dynamic, richer image thanks to the significant black level advantage.
