Unless you are sitting very close to the projector in a quiet room, you will need an outboard sound system of some kind. While they are fearsomely bright, blazing off our screen in a dark room, they also prove startlingly watchable in quite a bit of ambient light. Also unexpected is the W’s use of typically movie-friendly DLP technology rather than the LCD system usually employed at the ultra-cheap end of the market. They are adequate for sports or maybe social gaming uses, but there’s nowhere near enough power or soundstage size to satisfy with a film. To connect with the bluray player or laptop through HDMI, the effect is just acceptable. This quality, sometimes difficult to describe but always important, is improved greatly by disabling BrilliantColor. The W’s competitors do not fare well with regards to black level either, so in comparison it has a slight edge.

This mode has a strong green push, but would be appropriate for high-brightness applications such as HD sports in a living room or even “party” video games meant to be played by a large group in a moderately-lit room.
Posted Feb 23, 6: Click to learn more! This quality, sometimes difficult to describe but always important, is improved greatly by disabling BrilliantColor. The actual measured black level does not change; it merely looks less deep in comparison to the less brilliant highlights.
Not surprisingly, the W’s saving grace is its price. Posted Jan 3, 5: Posted Jan 11, 7: Click for more info!
BenQ W p 3D DLP Projector Review
Our test sample read lumens in this mode. This brings lumen output down to in Cinema mode using high lamp and in Cinema mode using low lamp. The W’s competitors do not fare well with regards to black level either, so in comparison it has a slight edge. Foul language is not permitted, nor are personal attacks. Follow TechRadar Reviews on Twitter: In image modes like Cinema, especially with BrilliantColor disabled, dynamic range is reduced but the picture as a whole looks more natural and well-balanced.
The latter adjusts the lamp output in sync with the six-segment colour wheel, to reduce DLP’s dot crawl noise problem and improve the subtlety and richness of colours. It’s important to stress here that some people are more susceptible to seeing the rainbow effect than others.

If anyone can help please email deane live. Posted Jul 14, 7: Assume 6w00 a moment that the lamp runs for a full 4, hours, and the cost per hour is a mere nickel.
Posted Feb 23, 8: This improves the machine’s 6w00, since there’s no need to worry about finding a separate audio system. Provided they’re not particularly susceptible to the rainbow effect, that is. In practical terms, a ” diagonal image would have an offset of just under 9″. Lamps last 2, hours in High lamp mode or 4, hours in Eco mode. A quick Google search will get you to sources and pricing. This will enable the 3d function that is grayed out.
The picture’s brightness also helps it deliver some pretty extreme colours for the bottom end of the market. The most obvious chink, without doubt, is the W’s susceptibility to DLP’s rainbow effect problem.

Also unexpected is the W’s use of typically movie-friendly DLP technology rather than the LCD system usually employed at the ultra-cheap end of the market. I have only just connected my W to a 3D Blu Ray player.
Other lesser problems find the W’s colours sometimes looking a bit garish and lacking in subtlety; the picture sometimes betraying signs of the projector’s pixel structure, especially around curved edges, and pictures exhibiting quite a bit of video noise at times, most notably when using the BrilliantColour feature.
I want to get one for outside viewing Posted May 24, BrilliantColor boosts highlights without affecting the rest of the image, leading to a brighter picture with much higher dynamic range. This leeway should allow you some flexibility when mounting the projector, though care must still be taken to plan at least the basics of your installation before purchase.
For a few minutes, we found ourselves staring agog at the quality of the W’s pictures.
