The BenQ W11000 is the only THX-certified DLP 4K UHD projector you can buy today

 

BenQ Singapore has today unveiled the W11000, the company's flagship DLP-based 4K UHD home cinema projector. Let's tell you how it's able to achieve a 4K picture with 8.3 million effective pixels despite not having a native 4K chip.

BenQ W1100

 

BenQ's W1100 offers some startling specs for its money, and is a great option for people who can't black out their rooms. More serious users may do better elsewhere, though.

Great price for the spec on offer, High brightness makes it usable in ambient light, Plenty of calibration tools

Images are a touch noisy, slightly washed out black levels, Predictably there’s no optical image shift
