BenQ W1500

 

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.

Integrated wireless HDMI can't justify the high price

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 necessary transmitter for the wireless HDMI is included free with the projector – as is one free pair of BenQ’s 144Hz active shutter 3D glasses. The projector’s 3D transmitter is built into its chassis.

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...

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.

Like most recent 3D home entertainment projectors, the W1500 can plug into a Blu-ray player, cable box, or the equivalent directly to show 3D images. However, it doesn’t ship with any DLP-Link glasses, which means you have buy the glasses separately...
