Personal Experience
Nice image for the $. Three of these were installed into a sanctuary to handle power point presentation as well as live camera footage. Image is nice and snappy. Data looks like I'm viewing a giant PC monitor. Small fonts are legible from 60+ feet away - nice contrast. There were some issues though...

Rainbows abound, so expect to see it and consider that for your application. We don't do a whole lot of cinema viewing, so it's not much of an issue. I'm pretty sensitive to it, and others have not noticed it much. Had great difficulty with RS232 integration. All codes supplied by BenQ were incorrect. Still trying to work out a solution with them, but not getting anywhere fast. CS is not very thorough. So if your installation mandates RS232 controls, beware!
