What a projector from BenQ offers you

By Deborah Tucker 5 years ago 3576 Views No comments

Watching movies, TV programmes or computer games on a big screen gives your home entertainment a new lease of life. Projectors are taking over from TV, giving a much larger viewing platform, offering flexibility of location and a defined image quality.

The home-cinematic experience can be enjoyed whilst also meeting a budget that suits you. Choosing the best package can be daunting, especially if you're not fluent in techno-talk. With the great range of projectors we're sure you'll find the right BenQ Projector for your requirements.

Meeting your needs

Before choosing a projector, it's important to assess your needs. Questions you'll be asking relate to the location of the projector, what it'll be used for and how sophisticated you'll need the technology to be.


BenQ projectors come in two types, DLP (Digital Light Processing) and LED, with LED quickly becoming the more popular choice for projectors. DLP projectors benefit from microscopic mirrors with each mirror representing a pixel of the image projected. DLP projectors are great value without compromising image quality.

Aspect ratios

If you're using your projector for classic films, TV or large presentations, one with an aspect ratio of 4:3 will suit your needs. Whereas if you're watching Blu-ray and HDTV, it's advisable to go with a 16:9 aspect ratio. BenQ offer a number of different projectors which will fit these requirements. Check out the technical specifications to help you decide.

Throw distance

The location of your projector, the size of the room it'll be in, and the distance between the lens and the screen are all things for you to consider. This is where the throw ratio is important for being able to project the image across the required distance and to cover the size of your screen. BenQ offer incredible quality projectors that will cater for any space and screen, no matter how large or small.

Bright ideas

Brightness is also important, especially if you don't have the luxury of a completely pitch black enclosed room (this suits projectors with anything under 1,000 lumens) or a cinema size screen. The general rule of thumb is: larger screens require more lumens. BenQ's quality projectors come in a variety of lumens, with great prices on projectors of 2,000 to 3,000 lumens, best suiting a dimly lit room.

Staying resolute

Crystal clear and crisp images have a higher resolution. The resolution of an image is dependant on the quantity of projected pixels. A 1920 x 1080 resolution will work best for gaming and HDTV. The BenQ W750 is perfect for this; weighing 2.6 kg and complete with a carry case, it's ideal for taking to a friend’s house and sharing the high quality gaming experience, whereas a 1280 x 720 projector will provide a great DVD and Blu-ray image quality.
