BenQ W1500 review

 

In recent years, setting up a projection-style home theater has gotten a whole lot more affordable. Still, even as projectors have gotten less expensive, the budget models have left something to be desired in either the picture quality or features...

Wireless HDMI included ; Vertical lens shift ; Short throw for big image at short distance ; Flexible placement ; Excellent brightness

Loss of shadow detail ; Set up of wireless HDMI is a hassle ; Some rainbow effect for sensitive viewers

The W-1500’s combination of solid HDMI wireless performance, appealing picture quality, flexible placement and affordability make it a value leader in its class.

The BenQ W1500 3D home entertainment projector is bright enough to stand up to moderate ambient light and offers acceptable, if not particularly impressive, video quality.

Works directly with HDMI 1.4a devices like Blu-ray players for full 1080p 3D. Wireless HD connection

Shows rainbow artifacts, although much less often than with many DLP projectors. Hard to focus eyes with some 3D scenes

If you want a big screen image for watching movies and TV at home, and don't want to spend a small fortune on a 90-inch TV, the DLP-based BenQ W1500 may be what you're looking for. As a home entertainment projector, it's bright enough by definition to...

BenQ W1500 Wireless Projector Preview

 

The $2300 BenQ W1500 HD projector has a ton of features. With a wireless high definition streaming solution, 3D, ISF certification, 6000 hour lamp life, and much more, there is a lot to like here.

BenQ W1500 1080p 3D DLP Wireless HDMI Projector Review

 

Very good test bench performance (in Cinema mode), Long lamp life (3,500 hours in Standard lamp mode, 5,000 hours in Economic mode), Excellent 2D as well as 3D performance, Glitch-free wireless HDMI

Limited vertical lens shift range, Many remote control button labels are hard to discern, Some noticeable off-axis light leakage

Compared to BenQ's entry level 1080p 3D DLP projector (the W1070, which goes for $899 at the BenQ US web store and on Amazon ), the W1500 provides two upgrades. The wireless HDMI is obviously the key differentiator, and will appeal to those that don't...

Here’s the very bottom line:   The BenQ W1500 earns our Special Interest Award.  Understand,  terms of picture quality, brightness and several other areas, the W1500 does deserve a Hot Product award, but it comes up short in one area that makes this...

Integrated wireless HDMI can't justify the high price

Expert review by:

BenQ W1500

 

This BenQ mid-ranger is OK with 2D, but its 3D is just plain weird. Find out why...

Excellent motion handling, Good colour performance, Decent wireless video system

Black level response could be better, Rather limited zoom and vertical image shift, Weird 3D

The BenQ W1500 may be a budget home-theatre projector, but if you'd like to enjoy high-quality Blu-ray 3D, you won't do much better than this at anywhere near the price.

Brilliant 3D performance ; Strong value for money ; Good motion interpolation system

Mediocre black levels ; Mediocre progressive scan conversion

So while the BenQ W1500 is a budget home-theatre projector, it turns out to do a generally good job so long as you deliver it a good-quality progressive scan signal. And if you'd like to enjoy high-quality Blu-ray 3D, then you won't do much better than...

BenQ W1500 Projector

 

If you're looking for a projector (and why wouldn't you be - good ones are abundant and cheap these days, and deliver much more screen real estate for your money than TV sets), you don't necessarily have to seek out the top the range get yourself and...

Sporting a brown, cream and silver styling that wouldn't have been out of place in the 1950s, the BenQ W1500 is a 2200 lumens mid-range single-chip 3D-capable DLP projector that weighs in at 4.5kg and measures 340*120*285mm (width/height/depth).
