BenQ W1000 DLP Projector

 

The BenQ W1000 DLP projector is not only good value, it also offers an excellent degree of fine-tuning flexibility.

Excellent value for money ; Sharp HD pictures ; Range of picture adjustment options

Unstylish design ; No optical vertical image shifting ; Limited 1.2x optical zoom

When all's said and done, the W1000 is pretty much equivalent in basic performance quality to the Optoma HD20. But it distinguishes itself to aficionados courtesy of its impressive fine-tuning flexibility.

BenQ W1000+ review

 

Although we weren't the biggest fans of the W1000, a price-drop and some tweaks make the W1000+ a very tasty option

Simple set-up, easy to use ; fine attention to detail ; nicely balanced colours ; price

Not the last word in motion stability

It’s not flawless, but it is astonishingly capable given the price tag

BenQ W1000 projector

 

We've all brought home a projector from the office and been thoroughly disappointed with the results. And while dedicated home cinema projectors offer widescreen high-definition and the contrast and smoothness movies demand, on first impression the...

Good contrast, decent sound, realistic colours

Could be tricky to position, some blur

A very good value home cinema projector with enough brightness and business clout to make it in the boardroom, BenQ's perfectly portable W1000 could just be the perfect bridge product. Although slightly let down by a less-than-flexible set-up, a...

BenQ W1000 review

 

This Full HD projector offers surprising value for money

Small size ; Reliable colour accuracy ; Decent contrast range

Rainbow effect ; Blur ; Slight softness

Nicely priced and neatly put together, this compact, full HD beamer is capable of some serious cinema

BenQ W1000 review

 

Benq's W1000 is a compact and quiet DLP projector with an attractively understated design and a 1080p resolution. It has composite, component, S-video and two HDMI inputs. Its slim white chassis won't take over a room, whether you ceiling mount it or...

Although it's reasonably priced and produces rich colours and dark blacks, the W1000 suffers more than most from the DLP rainbow effect.

BenQ W1000 DLP Projector Review

 

Yet another budget DLP hits the testing room, but is it any good?

Compact enough to use as an occasional display ; Excellent value for money ; Good greyscale performance out of the box ; Good black levels at the price point ; Good colour performance, if a little limited gamut wise

Noisy fan ; 3D CMS has limited use ; No manual greyscale controls ; Rainbow effect is quite noticeable ; Lack of lens shift, means limited placement options

BenQ W1000 projector

 

BenQ's budget home theatre projector has good detail levels and reasonable colour reproduction

Low price, portable, reasonable brightness for a home theatre projector

Low contrast ratio

The BenQ W1000 home theatre projector has a 1080p Full HD resolution and displays plenty of fine image detail, but it struggles when it comes to displaying dark or light areas of video. It is affordable and portable, so it is a good option for...

BenQ W1000

 

The BenQ W1000 DLP projector can be had for the same price as a 42-inch LCD, but will give you better bang for your buck.

Small and transportable. Natural colours, decent blacks after calibration. Value for money.

Noisy fan. Rudimentary installation options. Default picture settings look terrible.

The BenQ W1000 DLP projector can be had for the same price as a 42-inch LCD but will give you much better bang for your buck.
