BenQ W6000


A most impressive projector overall, the BenQ W6000 projector is extremely bright in its best movie mode, but as of our original posting still had one issue to be resolved, relating to its dynamic iris

Pretty good "out of the box" picture quality (with Brilliant Color off) ; Really good color accuracy post calibration in "best" mode ; Very good black levels, but not up to the very best under $3500 projectors ; Razor sharp image ; Extremely bright, as...

Dynamic iris is rough at times, could use some improvement (not a deal breaker, but a point of consideration/trade-off) NOTE: This point is now replaced (11/23) with a positive comment about the iris, in the Pros section above ; Can't fully adjust the...

BenQ's built another really fine projector, with an excellent set of strengths. Truly it's a top contender in its price range, and, I believe, the strongest player among the similarly priced DLP home theater projectors. With the further improved...

BenQ W6000 Review


This ugly duckling is actually a swan.

The BenQ W6000, at factory default settings, is a bit of an ugly duckling. Contrast and brightness are out of alignment, as are color balance and saturation. Sharpness is too high. However, with a little perseverance and some remote-control kung-fu, it...

BenQ W6000 home theatre projector


The BenQ W6000 is a high-end home theatre projector with a 2500 ANSI lumen rating and a 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Its high maximum brightness m...

2500 ANSI lumen output in maximum brightness mode, good colour reproduction

Dynamic iris' operation is very occasionally visible

BenQ'S W6000 projector is exceptionally bright for a home theatre unit, offering a reasonable compromise between colour accuracy and overall light output. It's versatile enough to be used in both dark and bright rooms, and picture quality is good...

BenQ W6000 DLP Projector


John gets to grips with the big, bold and brash BenQ W6000 DLP projector.

Getting the W6000 up and running really couldn't be easier. You can optically shift the image horizontally or vertically via an incredibly simple little joystick arrangement on the projector's front edge, and the zoom and focus rings around the lens...

BenQ W6000 review


Its high maximum brightness means the BenQ W6000 doesn't have to be confined to a home cinema room to provide good picture quality, as it performs competently in a well-lit environment as well.

We didn't have many problems when using the BenQ W6000. Its high brightness eliminates most of our complaints with home cinema projectors and it produces sharp, clean images with good contrast. It is versatile enough to be used in the daytime when your...

BenQ W6000


BenQ?s latest is a solid all-rounder that?s just held back from five stars by some even better competition

Vibrant yet balanced colours; excellent punch and purity of whites; flexible, easy-to-use design

Others offer greater detail and black depth; motion?s a little smeary

BenQ W6000 Full HD Single Chip DLP Projector


The design of the W6000 chassis is definitely a 'love it or hate it', 'Marmite' statement. Its all plastic body is black in colour with a large silver BenQ logo on the rear top plate. The lens is positioned in a central mount on the front face plate...

fanastic projector!


A great projector that I would buy again. When purchased a year ago, it was the brightest projector under $5k and the sharpest under $10k. I did have a service issue problem that was quickly dealt with.

Razor sharp picture, bright picture, quiet fan, great colors

Had one service issue where the auto-iris would black out the picture randomly after about 200 hours. Projector sent back under warrantly, quickly returned with an entire new motherboard, no further problems

Extraordinary projector


Even If I had a $50k budget to construct a home theater system and had seen this projector first, there would have been no need to look further. My first concern was my room not being completely dark with shades drawn etc, but this projector is...

Projects so bright even with a 60% brightness setting you can watch it with all the room lights on and still enjoy it. Turn the lights off and it's frightening how great it looks

Cannot think of a single con
