I am still leaving review at 5 stars even though there has been a quality issue. I started getting a lamp error and projector would shut down, it only happened once in a while and could go a couple of weeks before it happened again. I called Benq customer support, explained the problem and they were excellent in getting it resolved. Sent back RMA form right away, then a pre-paid shipping label was sent for return within a day. Although it was a pain taking it down, repacking and losing use of it, i had it back in my hands in a week, which to me is almost unheard of these days for repairs of electronic equipment. So i am happy to say it is back up and working great. Gotta love great customer service.
First of all i am giving this a 5 star because it suits my needs, although it does have some minor points against it that won't work for everyone. I purchased this for a big screen image, opposed to not being able to justify putting out 6 grand for a 82 inch oled tv. This projector will not compete image wise with a tv like that, but sure comes as close as possible for the price. I am not a projector geek, i just know what i would expect the quality of image i can live with from a projector. I primarily watch sports, but regular tv and movies are good with this also, high quality movies look great.
My setup is a ceiling mount, 10 feet away from screen, which is kind of pushing the limit for distance of throw of being close to screen. Screen is 90 inch diagonal, and not a high quality one, could of done better, but price was right. Running 35 feet hdmi cable i had to route to source which is a media player and internet based. Using audio out of projector back to sound bar.
Projector image setup was not that hard, focus ring is super sensitive, the supplied focusing image worked great for me to adjust it. There are lots of adjustments available for color, gamma, saturation, etc., i just use football mode in 4k and just a few tweeks to suit my preference. This thing is bright, so sometimes i do adjust the brightness a bit from the remote, depending on the channel video feed, every channel is different for video quality. It does have to be pretty close to center of screen, as it is not meant as a short throw projector, so lacks horizontal keystone adjustment.
There is a bit of halo around screen, but not noticeable to me when watching something. The projector does make some noise, but most do, and again not noticeable when watching and listening to a program. I personally think Benq should be offering more for software control of unit as there are non-functioning buttons on remote that could improve the image quality, but obviously not meant for this model. Not a deal breaker for me, i am pleased with what i am seeing.
I have been using this for a few months now, if i come across any issues i will update this review. The price now has been lowered quite a bit from what i originally paid.
Calidad imagen bien. lo q promete. Audio mejor q algunas barras de sonido económicas. Lo único q no me gusto es Q el tiro corto no es tan corto para 100” necesitas una distancia de 4 mts Tiene un sistema de enfriamiento q así no hace ruido y no ss calienta
I am updating this review. I am a new owner and must purchased the BenQtk800 so far so good . The projector is bright so I could watch it with lights on, I have a 109 "diagonal and picture quality is amazing . My projector is 13ft away . Previously I had the Ae700u Panasonic which I was also happy with but price point for the Panasonic was $2700 8 years ago. Now i got a 4k benq for $1500, just can't beat it. Good luck I'm happy :).
Just great. No one thought my wall was brown and still have a better picture then most TVs. Now with the projector screen it’s just unreal. Gaming on all consoles is amazing the lag is undetectable. But all in all never would I thought I would wanna stay home and not go to the movies and I’ve never said that before and I am 31.
En lo personal el proyector no cumplió mis expectativas, incluso esto considerando otro proyector en mi caso un epson láser, (se calienta mucho, la calidad no es buena en su proyección y ligero ruido molesto)
Have been using this for 3 months now and very impressed with the picture. Brightness is excellent - it looks great with the lights off and still very good with lights on in front of it. Mainly watching sports and movies on it and it has not disappointed. I don't do any gaming so can't comment on that. Got it when it went on sale for $1260 so if you're not in a rush, keep an eye on the price and wait for it to go down again. The fan is a little louder than I expected it to be. If you're listening for it, you can hear it but honestly when you start watching something good, you don't even notice it. I have it mounted on the ceiling about 14 feet away from a white screen. Had it projecting on a dark blue Wall before I got the screen and it still looked pretty good... But even better now with the screen.
4K Picture is actually very good. Quality of the unit build, not so much. First unit I received had to be sent back since it had vertical lines showing up. Second unit was good for a while and then the fan motor started making noise. Will need to send back to BenQ for repair, good thing they have a 3 year warranty, seems these units need it.
I don’t like the throw ratio of the projector. The screen doesn’t get big enough from a close range that I have my same benq w1070 at. Sadly had to return it cuz I couldn’t move the projector further back due to lack of room space. I get 119 inches from my w1070 at 4 metres away
