BenQ HT3050

 

The BenQ HT3050 home-entertainment projector delivers excellent 2D and 3D image quality and a touch more capability than less-expensive, entry-level models.

Full 1080p resolution in both 2D and 3D. 1.3x zoom. Modest vertical lens shift. Unusually capable sound system. Follows Rec. 709 color standard.

Shows rainbow artifacts.

Conclusion For those who don't see rainbow artifacts or don't find them bothersome, the BenQ HT3050 offers a lot to like. That includes the convenience of vertical lens shift, the extraordinarily high quality sound system for a projector, and, above...

BenQ HT3050 Review Roundup

 

This BenQ comes with great color, but reviews do have a couple notes for interested projector fans.

If you really want a 3D projector but also want it to do other things, this BenQ may be a good choice. Just make sure your mounting options match.

BenQ HT3050 3D DLP Projector Review

 

BenQ's HT 3050 delivers surprisingly good performance for its price, but noticeable light leakage drags down an otherwise strong recommendation.

Highly accurate and stable colorimetry out of the box; Impressively sharp and detailed images at a reasonable price; Useful calibration adjustments including lockable ISF modes

Punitive light leakage from lens opening; Limited lens adjustments constrain placement options; 3D glasses not supplied

Excellent 3D Projector

 

This projector looks amazing with no adjustments necessary. I purchased the WOW to adjust the projector and I can tell you that I only modified the brightness and nothing else. This projector uses DLP link 3D glasses and I purchased the EStar America...
