BenQ W1500 1080P HD Wireless HD DLP Home Theater Projector review

BenQ’s W1500 Wireless HDMI Projector integrates the latest technology for one-of-a-kind, big screen, at-home entertainment enjoyment. As the world’s first home projector with built in wireless features, enjoy Full HD 3D video, frame interpolation for ultra-smooth motion quality, brilliant color performance and the flexibility of placing the projector in any room, regardless of size and brightness. W1500 is able to project uncompressed FHD images from HDMI output devices (e. g. Blu-ray, DVD or AV-R player, set top boxes, games consoles) without the hassle of HDMI cables and unnecessary expenses such as wall/ceiling mount. The projector uses WHDI (Wireless Home Digital Interface). It’s a wireless HDMI connection standard that uses the 5GHz radio transmission band to transfer both 2D and 3D HD video and audio, which produces the same quality a wired connection would provide. There is no latency over distances up to 20 meters (line-of-sight). You can use this projector in any room thanks to the W1500’s convenient zoom. The projector can project a screen size up to 84″ from just 6 feet away, making it perfect for most media rooms, game rooms, or even a temporary outdoor theater.

Plug in and play. All you need is the power cord and the connection to the video source to have theater-like entertainment. W1500 comes with two built-in 10W speakers with SRS which can save money (or extra costs) by eliminating the need for Hi-Fi or external speakers. The built-in SRS WOW HD improves compressed and uncompressed audio performances by expanding the size of the audio image and creating a deep, rich bass response. And it improves audio playback quality by delivering a dynamic 3D entertainment experience with deep, rich bass and high frequency clarity for crisp detail.

Equipped with the latest DLP technology, watching 3D movies directly from Blu-ray DVD or even 3D gaming just became the norm. Experience and enjoy the excitement of 3D viewing in the comfort of your home. Don’t have a 3D source? 2D to 3D conversion turns typical 2D content into 3D. Enjoy the experiences of 3D without worrying about the costs and limited 3D contents. W1500’s 1.6x Big Zoom feature frees up space with an impressive range of throw distances; giving you the freedom and flexibility of placing the projector anywhere without having to compromise your current decor. Lens shift offers the extra flexibility to overcome any minor miscalculations during projector installation. All you have to do is adjust the switch next to the lens to shift the projected image up by 110%-130% within the projector housing. With this helpful feature, you’ll never have to worry about positioning the projector slightly out of place again.

W1500 features Texas Instruments’ advanced DarkChip3 DLP Technology, which projects higher brightness and deeper black levels by “filling in” the area where the digital micro mirror connects to its hinge–producing smooth, film-like picture quality. For optimal color precision, the W1500 is built to match one of the highest high-definition video standards seen in professional-grade home projectors today: the native Rec. 709 color gamut. This enables the projector to deliver colors so real that it reflects what the human eye perceives. The special Frame Interpolation mode minimizes the appearance of motion blur and judder to give you an ultra-smooth view of all the action–especially in fast moving scenes in movies and sports games. The Frame Interpolation technology estimates the motion changes from frame to frame and inserts an interpolated frame in-between existing frames, resulting in smoother, life-like motion quality.
