The BenQ W may well be a budget projector but it manages to deliver a far from budget performance. The chassis might be small and light, betraying BenQ’s data grade heritage, but it’s well built and the size makes installation easier. There is some fan noise and light spill but, on the upside, the W is very bright making it ideal for the average living room. The rear connections are fairly standard, with two HDMI inputs, beq only the rinky-dink remote lets beqn side down.
The glasses have had a redesign to accommodate the introduction of ‘triple flash’ and beenq now, smaller, lighter and more comfortable to wear. The setup is very straightforward thanks to some simple manual lens controls and a clear and concise menu system. The out-of-the-box greyscale and colour gamut were extremely accurate, which is encouraging in a projector at this price point.
BenQ has even included some w75 calibration controls, meaning the W can be tweaked to a near reference level of colour accuracy. The projector uses a p chip but with a sensibly sized screen and an average viewing distance, the images have plenty of detail.
The video processing is also excellent, which means that despite having to scale all content, the W doesn’t introduce noticeable artefacts.
The motion handling was excellent, as we would expect from a DLP projector, and whilst the blacks were poor, the brightness and good intra-frame performance did compensate to a degree.
We found that with 2D content, the W could produce a picture that really punched above its weight, with accurate colours, decent shadow detail and well rendered images. Of course, the W is a single chip DLP projector and thus uses a colour wheel, so those that are susceptible to ‘rainbows’ should demo first. With 3D content the W really came into its own, delivering a fantastic performance that was hard to fault.
The absence of distracting scaling artefacts, crosstalk and flicker, along with the brightness and accuracy of the image, resulted in a highly enjoyable and genuinely immersive 3D experience. If you’re looking for a cheap projector the BenQ W should definitely be on your list and if you’re looking for a second projector for 3D, it should be near the top.

BenQ W Projector Introduction BenQ have made quite a niche for themselves in the projector market, producing a series of budget machines that deliver surprisingly good images and a decent set of features considering their price. Now the manufacturer has launched their new W projector that, whilst using a p DLP chip, manages to incorporate some handy calibration features at a very attractive price.
However, more importantly, the W is a 3D projector that uses ‘triple flash’, which refreshes each lens in the 3D glasses 72 times a second, rather than the normal 48, with 24p content.
BenQ W750 Projector
This feature takes advantage of DLP’s inherent strengths and should result in a superior 3D performance with no flicker or crosstalk.
Is it too good to be true or does the BenQ W represent a new level of performance and value when it comes to 3D? The W’s menu screens are rather small in size but at least they’re simple and effective, consisting of six main pages, the first of which relates to the projector’s built-in speaker.
There is also an Information screen, which shows you the source, preset mode, resolution, colour system, lamp hours, 3D format and firmware version. Basic Nenq The W has a ww750 of presets, of which Cinema offers the best out-of-the-box performance. This setting defaults to a Benqq of 2. We chose the Real Aspect Ratio setting, optimised Brightness and Contrast for our behq and found that the middle setting for beq Sharpness appeared best.
We also set the Clarity Control to zero and made sure that BrilliantColor feature was off because this just over-saturates the colours. Calibrated Setup Given the general level of accuracy in the Cinema mode, we left the majority of settings as they were and just adjusted the greyscale using the white balance and the colour gamut using the CMS. Brightness, Black Levels and Dynamic Range If there is one area where DLP projectors tend to struggle it’s black levels and as a budget model the W was certainly no exception.
We measured the black level at 0. We also noticed some slight unevenness to the image when looking at a 0 IRE screen, which is bwnq uncommon at this price point. BenQ claim a contrast ratio of 13, However on the plus side, once the brightness control was set correctly, the shadow detail and intra-frame performance were actually quite good.
BenQ Projectors: BenQ W DLP projector
Unsurprisingly for a budget projector with a data grade history, the W was very bright and in beenq calibrated state we were easily getting 1, lumens. That was using the Eco lamp mode, so the W has plenty of brightness, even for a room with white walls or ceiling, which is the kind of environment it’s most likely to be used in. The BenQ could get even brighter in Normal lamp mode, which whilst increasing the fan noise does at least mean it has sufficient brightness to combat the dimming nature of active shutter bsnq and give 3D images plenty of impact.
Video Processing Since the W is a p projector, the video processing is even more important than normal because no matter what you’re watching, the projector is almost always either scaling it up for standard definition content or scaling down for high definition content. Thankfully, the video processing in the W was actually very good and we found it correctly scaled the full i and i test images without any loss of detail or unwanted ringing.
It also had no problems detecting both 2: The W also performed well when it came to high definition material, scaling the higher resolution content down to match the projector’s x panel.
With the player set to i, the W bejq and displayed both ww750 video and film resolution tests well and displayed bena good overall performance with the minimum bens processing artefacts. The W also had no difficulties showing video text overlaid on high definition film based material and it handled 24p content without any problems. The one test where the W did fall down was in terms of clipping peak information in both white and the three primary colours, although it is unlikely most people would notice with normal content.
There is some truth to brnq, although on our larger screen the difference in resolution was immediately apparent, especially as we got closer to the image. However, if you set up the W correctly the images it produces are certainly detailed enough to please anyone who plans to use it on a 6 to 7 foot screen.
What’s more the image accuracy out-of-the-box beq excellent, so even after a basic setup the W can deliver pictures that punch well above their market position. It might be difficult to justify a professional calibration at this price point but it’s good to see that BenQ has included a two point white balance and a colour management system, allowing those who are able, to get an almost reference performance from the budget projector. The W is a single chip DLP projector which means it w70 a colour wheel so, if you suffer from ‘rainbows’, you should definitely demo before buying.
It didn’t disappoint, delivering one of the best 3D experiences we’ve had – at any price. It’s quite incredible that a projector this cheap can produce 3D images this good but that just goes to show how effective DLP is when it comes to adding the third dimension.
All of DLP’s innate advantages come into play, with excellent motion handing and a complete lack of crosstalk. The addition of ‘triple flash’ means that flicker is also eliminated, making for a much more comfortable active shutter experience.
Once you include the W’s brightness and surprising level of colour accuracy, you start to get an idea of how good the 3D performance and even the video processing is up to the task. This is the one area where the W’s 3D performance could have fallen down but it avoids adding any noticeable scaling artefacts and thus there is nothing to distract from your 3D experience.
