BenQ Projectors: BenQ W DLP projector

The graph above right shows the colour performance which was reasonable but clearly being affected by the errors in the greyscale. There is also the option to fine tune the colour temperature using a two-point White Balance control and a Gamma Selection, ranging from 1.

The W comes with a pair of active shutter 3D glasses, which is a nice touch at this price point. The other major issue is that the use of a colour wheel can result in rainbow artefacts, for some people, although the W didn’t seem to suffer from that as much as other DLP projectors at the lower end of the price range.

The colours were extremely natural, especially when it came to flesh tones but the W also delivered the stylised colours of The Hobbit with great effect. Video Processing The video processing in the W was reasonably good and it accurately scaled the full i and i images without any loss of detail or unwanted ringing.

BenQ W review | What Hi-Fi?

In terms of aspect ratio, if the majority of your viewing content is high definition then choose Real, which is BenQ’s name for their pixel mapping mode. The projected image was highly detailed thanks to the use of a single-chip and, in general, the greyscale and colour performance was extremely accurate, beenq after calibration.

Do you already have an account? The picture could be a touch brighter, but it retains its exuberant performance. We left most of the other controls at their default settings, turned the Flesh Tone control down to zero and selected the Eco Lamp Power setting.


Conversely, the blacks and shadow detail are mediocre meaning that the BenQ wouldn’t be ideal for a very dark room. But the picture never strays w1040 overblown territory.

So unsurprisingly the W was impressive, producing big 3D images that were both detailed and, most importantly, bright.

However it had no problems with the test displaying film material with scrolling video text, which was always clearly readable without any shredding. As a result the errors were now all below one, which means that they are imperceptible to the human eye.

As a result there were no distracting artefacts or other issues to detract from the performance and thanks to the large projected image, it was a highly immersive experience. The W did a wonderful job of replicating the stereographer’s intent, producing images that were bright, detailed and crosstalk-free.

With i material the W had no difficulties in showing video text overlaid on film based material and also handled 24p content without any problems. The W is quick to set up: Analogue sources are well catered for, too, with component, composite, S-Video and PC inputs. The projector itself is reasonably well made, although the fans can get a little noisy and there was some light spill. Since this is a BenQ projector, the W is a single chip DLP model with a colour wheel, so it’s probably not ideal for those who suffer from rainbows.

Alfonso Cuaron’s flowing minute single takes in Gravity were very well produced thanks to the impressive motion handling, as was Peter Jackson’s constantly roaming camera in The Hobbit: Read about our review ethos and the meaning of our review badges. The black levels could have been better and shadow detail has never been a strong point of DLP technology, but overall the W produced a very pleasing image.

The W has manual lens controls, including a basic lens shift which is unusual for a DLP projector at this price point. Whilst not having all of the features found on more expensive projectors, the W would be ideal for anyone looking for a projector to quickly setup and use for big events movie nights, football matches, gaming sessions. Manual zoom and focus come as standard, and we like the addition of a vertical-lens shift. The BenQ was also good in the tests using high definition content and with the player set to i it correctly deinterlaced and displayed both the video and film resolution tests and showed good scaling and filtering performance, as well as good resolution enhancement.


Take your time when setting up the picture; use a THX Optimizer disc for the best results. The images are always bright and contain plenty of detail, whilst the motion handling is superb, never smearing on camera pans or fast movement.

The frequent snow backgrounds were devoid of discolouration and the sense of depth and dimensionality was excellent. Overall it was an impressive performance for a budget projector.

BenQ’s latest projector shows that their line-up isn’t only extensive, it’s also very good. In fact all the colours were close to their targets aside from some minor hue errors in green and magenta and overall this is an excellent colour performance. Whilst the out-of-the-box measurements could have been better, the W was very accurate w400 calibration.

Finally there is a Colour Management System CMS with control over the Hue tintSaturation colour and Gain luminance or brightness of all three primary colours and all three secondary colours. In terms of more advanced calibration controls, you can select the Colour Temperature with a choice of Normal, Cool, Lamp Native and Warm. The high contrast space shots in Gravity were also nicely reproduced, whilst the level of detail was astounding in some of the spaceship close-ups.

BenQ might be primarily associated with data grade projectors but the manufacturer has recently launched some excellent additions to their home cinema line-up. As we’d expect from a DLP projector, the motion handling bemq great and the 3D images were completely free of crosstalk.
