BenQ W1200 review

 

When it comes to home theatre setups, the standard choice is either a high-definition LCD or Plasma TV. With them, come budget constraints. For example, LCD TVs above the 42 and 46-inch size are extremely expensive in comparison to their smaller...

The BenQ W1200 isn't the ultimate of projectors out there. The full 1080p resolution does add a bit more to the detail, but you absolutely must use 1080p video on it to take advantage of it.

BenQ W1200

 

For a family room type environment, it's also great that the W1200 has plenty of lumens. Though we clocked only 1400 and change out of BenQ's claimed 1800, and our preferred bright mode was down around 1200 lumens, that still is a lot better than most...

Bright entry level home projector with sufficient lumens to double as a portable business projector ; Definitely has that famous DLP look - with deep rich saturated colors ; Capable of screens up to 130" and maybe even larger depending on room etc ;...

Could be a bit quieter at full power, though it is quieter than most other low cost DLP's but noisier than the LCD projectors ; Worse, the projector has a variable fan level - it will speed up or slow down every so often. Many will notice when it...

Other than the BenQ W1200 looking a lot like many other projectors (though it has a touch more style than many), most typical is the documentation: Not a lot of depth, or advice on why to use certain settings

BenQ W1200 Review

 

Despite some quirks, the W1100 and W1200 are excellent 1080p home theater projectors for $1299 and $1499.

BenQ W1200 review

 

First impressions of the W1200, BenQ's latest home cinema projector, are good; it's compact, quiet and stylish. The glossy white and silver plastic chassis is easy on the eye and the projector is small enough to fit on a shelf. Like most projectors...

A great DLP projector with plenty of display options, but it costs more than the equivalent LCD competition

BenQ W1200

 

Although it may be a touch aggressive for some tastes, BenQ's new £1,200 projector offers a heck of a lot for its money.

Pictures are very sharp and clean ; Colours are intense but believable ; Good price for what's on offer

Black levels could be deeper ; Fan noise can distract ; No vertical image shift

The W1200 does its best to turn us against it with its uneven fan noise, slightly flimsy build quality and worst of all its missing vertical image shift. But ultimately, no matter how much we tried to stay upset with it, the exceptional sharpness,...

Product of the Year, Awards 2011. A brilliantly accomplished performer and a must-see projector

Build quality and spec; fine picture, with excellent contrasts and heroic levels of detail

No vertical lens shift, so it?s not ideal for using on a coffee table; motion processing can occasionally look unnatural

BenQ W1200 HD DLP projector

 

Review BenQ's W1200 Full HD projector is shocking. Shockingly good that is. I've seen plenty of inexpensive single chip DLP projectors over the past few years, and while I've admired their functionality I've never hankered after a single one....

Overall, the W1200 presents a great argument for not spending an arm and a leg on a high-end home cinema projector. Bizarrely, I’m going to advocate you spend even less. The W1200 has a lookalike sibling which lacks frame interpolation and is £200...

BenQ - W1200

 

Small, handsomely designed and selling for just over a grand, BenQ's latest Full HD projector is aimed at the 'home projection' market - and that means photos and gaming as well as home cinema. The ...

Ultra-clean and reference-level HD detail - together with startlingly bright and well-saturated colours - suggest that BenQ has developed a good value projector for all occasions that's capable of consistently incredible pictures from HD sources. We're...

BenQ W1200

 

There's no match for a blockbuster movie on a big screen, and startlingly high performance can now be had even with entry level models. BenQ's DLP-based W1200 steps up to the plate with a stack of decent features, which makes it an aggressive contender...

Pictures are very sharp and clean; Colours are intense but believable; Good price for what's on offer

Black levels could be deeper; Fan noise can distract; No vertical image shift

WOW! HD perfection

 

Installed this unit in my home to create a home theatre experience. Super impressed with the picture image quality and vivid color representation. The video processing is super smoothe. I'm now wondering why I didn't ever do this sooner since everytime...
