BenQ W7500 Overview
This new BenQ W7500 projector serves up rather good black level performance, and a very sharp image. We, of course, expect a sharp image in a home theater projector of this quality and price range, as single chip DLP’s have a distinct advantage over 3 chip projectors. That said, the W7500 is very sharp! True, many competitors have detail enhancement features, (and typically panel alignment) – which the W7500 wouldn’t need). As it turns out, though, the BenQ does have its own detail enhancement options. The W7500 also comes with a few other “special features”, which I’ll address in some detail in the next pages, aptly named the Special Features pages.
If you’ve already glanced at the specs, you’ll notice that BenQ doesn’t rate their lamps as lasting as long as much of the competition. Just remember, that’s fair enough, as there really aren’t any single chip DLP projectors around this price range and picture quality that are near as bright. The BenQ W7500 sacrifices something in lamp life, but you get a real light canon.
