Whilst the out-of-the-box measurements could have been better, the W was very accurate after calibration. Whilst single-chip DLP won’t be for everyone due to the rainbow artefacts that the colour wheel can produce, if they don’t affect you then the W represents a tempting combination of performance nenq value.

For those that suffer from rainbows but are thinking of using a DLP projector for 3D viewing, colour artefacts on the W were almost completely eliminated when wearing glasses for 3D. The frequent snow backgrounds were devoid of discolouration and the sense of depth and dimensionality was excellent.

The gamma was still tracking at 2. In fact all the colours were close to their targets aside from some minor hue errors in green and magenta and overall this is an excellent colour performance. An exciting projector that offers big screen entertainment for a great price.

In fact we’ve seen quite a few BenQ projectors pass through our doors over the past couple of months and overall they’ve been consistently good.

The W comes with a pair of active shutter 3D glasses, which is a nice touch at this price point. The projector is simple to setup thanks to the lens controls, flexible in terms of placement and very easy to use.

The projector itself is reasonably well made, although the fans can get a little noisy and there was some light beq. Sunlit scenes are bright without looking overly warm, blues and reds are richly hued and greens trees are perhaps a little too intense.


We tested the W with a range of material and found that the it performed well with both standard and high definition content although, unsurprisingly, it was Blu-ray that looked the best. As we’d expect from a DLP projector, the motion handling was great and the 3D images were completely free of crosstalk.

We also turned off the Clarity Control, Frame Interpolation and Brilliant Colour features, whilst a Sharpness setting of 1 appeared to neither sharpen nor soften the image. You own this Total 5.

Then we moved on to The Hobbit: There are features such as the Clarity Control that adjusts noise reduction, Brilliant Colour that increases the colour luminance and a control for setting the Black Level. The zoom and focus controls use rings at the front of lens assembly, whilst henq shift control sits under a small panel just behind the other lens controls.

However it had no problems with the test displaying film material with scrolling video text, which was always clearly readable without any shredding. For Punchy and vibrant colour palette Plenty of detail Clean, crisp and bright picture; Decent with 3D, motion and bsnq Compact, light build Easy to set up and use Good connectivity.

The W is a good example and has been designed to deliver big screen, Full HD entertainment with plenty of useful features and a pair of 3D glasses thrown in for good measure. The images are always bright and contain plenty of detail, whilst the motion handling is superb, never smearing on camera pans or fast movement.

As with any single-chip DLP projector, the W has certain strengths and weaknesses.

The gamma was tracking very accurately around our target of 2. The picture could be a touch brighter, but it retains its exuberant performance. Unlike many of BenQ’s other projectors, the W even includes a frame interpolation feature.

There is also the option to fine tune the colour temperature using a two-point White Balance control and a Gamma Selection, ranging from 1.

The graph above right shows the colour performance which was reasonable but clearly being affected by the errors in the greyscale.


The BenQ W makes a great all-round projector and whatever you plan to use it for – sport, movies or gaming – the resulting big screen images are sure to please, especially when you consider the price. The W is quick to set up: Alfonso Cuaron’s flowing minute single takes in Gravity were very well produced thanks to the impressive motion handling, as was Peter Jackson’s constantly roaming camera in The Hobbit: Whilst not having all of the features found on more expensive projectors, the W would be ideal for anyone looking for a projector to quickly setup and use for big events movie nights, football matches, gaming sessions.

The black levels could have been better and shadow detail has never been a strong point of DLP technology, but overall the W produced a very pleasing image. The W has manual lens controls, including a basic lens shift which is unusual for a DLP projector at this price point. Overall it was an impressive performance for a budget projector.

The BenQ W is an enjoyable proposition for anyone wanting to get into the home cinema market, but not quite willing to pay premium price. Since there is a built-in speaker you also get 3.

The glasses use RF to sync and are reasonably light and comfortable to wear, with large lenses that can fit over prescription specs. You want this Total 1. Do you already have an account? The other major issue is that the use of a colour wheel can result in rainbow artefacts, for some people, although the W didn’t seem to suffer from that as much as other DLP projectors at the lower end of the price range.

The projected image was highly detailed thanks to the use of a single-chip and, in general, the greyscale and colour performance was extremely accurate, especially after calibration. Physical Characteristics Weight Approximate 3.
