BenQ W7000 Full-HD 3D Home Cinema Projector Preview

 

Incorporating many of the latest technologies, the BenQ W7000 certainly looks to be a lot of features for the money. With a MSRP of just under $4k, it could be a wallet buster those on a budge though.

The BenQ W7000 sports a lot of the technology in the bigger, more expensive BenQ projectors. But that doesn't mean it is cheap. With a MSRP of just under $4k, it could be a wallet-buster for an Audioholic on a budget. We've already seen the projector's...

BenQ W7000 3D DLP Projector

 

I've reviewed quite a few BenQ projectors over the years. During the heyday of mid-priced DLP offerings, BenQ designed some great price/performance machines that received some high recommendations from me. Unfortunately, the company's last few...

The overall picture quality – notably the colors, of the W7000 really do look impressive. That DLP look and feel – rich colors yet without being over the top, is in its full glory with the W7000. That’s not to say you can’t find more natural looking...

A great projector for a home theater, living room, or game room, and at $2499 it won't break the bank, either.
