BenQ W1000


You see, turns out the BenQ W1000 projector, and the Vivitek H1080FD projector that I reviewed in November, are, essentially, the same projector. Why, I'm still sorting out the more subtle differences as I'm writing this. And, I'm waiting on some...

Brightest of the low cost 1080p projectors - great for family rooms, bonus rooms, where some light is present ; Good color, very satisfactory for most folks (though definitely not a purist's projector) ; Built in speaker - ideal for quick setup or...

Black level performance is very basic more typical of 720p projectors than the bulk of 1080p models. It's fine, though, for use in rooms that always have some light ; Limited placement flexibility, and no lens shift (typical DLP projector) ; Slow 2x...

The BenQ W1000 is an entry level 1080p projector. In color accuracy, black levels and some other areas, it's not a match for projectors that start at about double the price, but, more importantly, the W1000 is still extremely impressive, with a dynamic...

The BenQ W1000, another 1080p home theater projector for under $1,000. Great picture at a bargain price.

BenQ W1000


The BenQ W1000 is a good option when choosing from our list of home theater projectors. It's an affordable unit that can give very good results in picture quality, thanks to its DLP and BrilliantColor technology. Watch out for color artifacts in lower...

Contrast ratio is lower than similar models

Affordable home theater projector option.

Best Entry 1080p Home Theater Projector


This projector is awesome, I got it after reading a couple of reviews and spent weeks on forums reading about this projector. Initially I had been eyeing the W1000, but when the W1000+ came out I held back and to wait for the reviews on the W1000+ to...

BenQ W1000


The BenQ W1000 offers 1080p projection at a budget price

Small size ; Reliable colour accuracy ; Decent contrast range

Rainbow effect ; Blur ; Slight softness

BenQ has come up with a good first attempt at a budget full HD lightbox that just about justifies its price.

BenQ W1000 projector


The BenQ W1000 is an entry-level 1080p home theatre projector with a high quality lens that allows it to display plenty of image detail. It struggles ...

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 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.


Product Specifications

The W1000 finds its unique niche as a 1080p Full HD home cinema projector equipped with solid performance essentials. Like the W6000, it boasts a 6-segment advanced color wheel and BrilliantColor processing for exceptionally rich, true-to-source tones. Exclusive 3D color management and OSRAM's UNISHAPE technology differentiate the W1000's mastery of color: the former allows users 100% color customization without compromise; the latter amps image brightness up to 40% by varying the intensity of the projector lamp in synchronization with the color wheel. The result is movie magic with boldly rendered hues and never-before-noticed dark detail definition. A high 2,700:1 contrast ratio harnesses the 1,800AL for deep, rich image quality, even with ambient room lighting. Top access lamp door and dual HDMI inputs afford easy installation and hookup. A generous 4,000-hour eco lamp life is icing on consumer budgets.
