BenQ W10000
1080p Home Theater Projector

Bill Livolsi, January 17, 2007

[Update 1/29/07: The initial posting of this review indicated that the W10000 has a 1.35:1 power zoom and focus lens, when in fact the zoom range of the lens is 1.15:1. This means that the W10000 can produce a 100" diagonal 16:9 image from 13.1' to 15.1', not from 13' to 17.7' as originally indicated. This review has been updated with this data, and we apologize for the error. --bl]

BenQ has recently come to market with the W10000, a native 1080p darkchip3 DLP projector that delivers a beautiful, bright, high-contrast image. It has a moderate-throw 1.15:1 lens with generous lens shift. However, as of this writing, it requires some fine-tuning that only an ISF-certified calibrator can perform to reach its best possible performance. Once calibrated it delivers a rich, sharp HD picture with a tremendous amount of detail. Its performance with standard definition material is less impressive, but on par with some of the other 1080p models on the market.


ANSI lumens: 1200

Contrast (full on/off): 10,000:1

Light Engine: 1920x1080, native 16:9, 1.0" single-chip DLP with an 8-segment, 5x rotation speed color wheel and a 250W lamp.

Video Compatibility: 1080p/60, 1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i, 480p, 480i. NTSC/PAL/SECAM.

Lens and Throw Distance: 1.15:1 powered zoom/focus lens. Throws a 100" diagonal 16:9 image from 13.1' to 15.1'
