Packs in features typically only found on more expensive projectors
The BenQ W1500 is a fully-featured home theater projector with a stellar HD picture. It packs in features typically only found on more expensive projectors, like frame interpolation and vertical lens shift, without compromising one iota when it comes to picture quality. It is easy to use thanks to an intuitive remote control and menu system, easy to set up thanks to 1.6:1 zoom and vertical lens shift, and easy to fine-tune thanks to comprehensive color controls and three User memory banks.
Excellent motion handling and good colour performance
While it's certainly not a bad projector in 2D mode, nor is BenQ's W1500 the step-up hero we'd hoped for. For us, its quality leap from BenQ's cheaper models isn't quite extensive enough to justify a Â£1,400 price tag - especially as the 3D playback on the sample we tested is an eyestrain-inducing disaster.
Has a ton of features
The BenQ W1500 has a ton of features. With a wireless high definition streaming solution, 3D, ISF certification, 6000 hour lamp life, and much more, there is a lot to like here. At $2300, there better be. While it might be cheaper to buy a similarly featured projector and hire someone to run wires for you, that may not be possible for many. The only thing we can find left off the feature list is horizontal lens shift.
Offers a wider range of image sizes than the lower-cost model
The BenQ W1500 has a wider range of functions than the W1070â??another five-star projector from BenQ. As well as delivering excellent-quality 3D, this projector has an effective frame interpolation function, wireless HDMI support and offers a wider range of image sizes than the lower-cost model. However, there's no real gain in picture quality compared with the W1070. Given that the W1500 is a fair bit pricier, we'd still recommend the W1070 if you're looking for the best-value option.
Powerful, compact projector that packs a variety of presenting features into a tiny package
The Dell M900HD is a powerful, compact projector that packs a variety of presenting features into a tiny package. Its 30,000-hour LED light engine removes the need for lamp replacements, thereby reducing the number of things that can go wrong while you're out on the road. It has best-in-class connectivity thanks to its creative implementations of USB and WiFi projection.
Incredibly portable, and very convenient if you have a suitably equipped laptop, phone or tablet
The Dell M900HD is incredibly portable, and very convenient if you have a suitably equipped laptop, phone or tablet. It does get pretty hot, and a few more ANSI lumens would increase its versatility. Nonetheless, it compares very favourably to other similar models on the market, and will prove a great option for mobile executives and large businesses needing a projector that can service several rooms.
Achieves a large image from such a short distance from the screen
In conclusion, the Epson BrightLink 436Wi is a good choice for those looking for an affordable interactive projector that is easy to use and reliable. MSRP right now is $1490. When you consider how easy it is to get up and running quickly, along with the warranty and peace of mind that Epson provides in its customer service, the 436Wi is going to be a projector to give strong consideration.
Colors are eye catching, vibrant, and nicely saturated
The 436Wi offers more than enough to earn your attention if you're in the market for a 1280x800 interactive short throw projector. In addition to excellent data image quality, better than par video quality, and a suitably bright image, it offers a slew of welcome interactive features, including automatic calibration, the ability to use two pens simultaneously, and the PC-free mode that lets you interact with any image from any source or use the projector as a whiteboard.
A strong product that is sure to inspire generations of projectors to come
As a standard projector, the WD390U is fully-featured and well-made, putting plenty of light onto the screen and making presentations look vibrant and high in contrast. But it's the projector's network features that make it really shine, and it is people searching for a networked projection solution who should really sit up and take notice.
Excellent Picture Quality - Network Setup Complicated
The picture quality is excellent. I like the "short throw" image of this projector. However, even with an experienced, corporate level IT person, the networking is a glitchy, complicated process set up. The projector is set up on our network, hardwired using a LAN cable, with it's own IP address. I can see it and connect to it over the LAN from my desktop computer, which is on the same network. I can control it and project from my desktop.
Bright projection, can use in daytime
The LG PA75U LED Projector is beautifully designed and is the perfect substitution for those who cannot afford an expensive television set over 50â? ³. I set my projector at 80â? ³, but I tested it up to 120" and the picture resolution is still nice to stare at.
You can easily save money by purchasing this projector instead of a new 3D TV. You can get this projector for $649. You cannot find a great 3D TV at that price.
Great color, high contrast, and excellent placement flexibility
The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5020UBe is the newest addition to the Epson home theater line, and it continues their tradition of fully-featured, high-value home theater projectors. Its bright picture combines deep contrast and vibrant color to create a picture that pops off of the screen, while its 3D performance has received a significant boost thanks to new RF-sync glasses.
Great color, high contrast, and excellent placement flexibility make the Epson 5020 series easy to like.
Supports usefully bright, high-quality image in the most portable format
As should be obvious, the AAXA P2 Jr. offers a lot to like. Its got excellent data image quality, good video quality, good connectivity, plus the ability to read files directly from USB keys and microSD cards. It also helps a lot that it doesn't show many rainbow artifacts. It fits in a shirt pocket and has ample brightness for the size, particularly when using AC power.
Good brightness and color rendition in a compact package
The NEC M311X has a lot going for it and its price point should be very attractive to the buyer looking for a low maintenance, high output projector in a compact package. For price and performance, it compares well with other LCD projectors in its class, while offering more features than many of them. However, the Viewsonic PJD6544w (big brother to the recently reviewed Viewsonic PJD5533w) offers WXGA resolution and similar brightness and features at lower price.
Great brightness, lightweight, easy to use, all for a very reasonable cost
I love this projector. Not only does it give a great image with great brightness, but it is also very thin, lightweight and easy to carry around. Zoom capability is somewhat limited, but does help in adjusting screen size once you get about the right distance. Speakers in the unit are limited, and unfortunately there is no audio out, so you have to hook up audio from your laptop audio out (that worked just great for a recent video presentation with over 200 people in a large hall).
Excellent pricing on lamps for Epson Brighter Future customers
Overall, Epson has produced a ultra short throw interactive projector that is easy to use, easy to set up, and is priced right. Street prices put this projector at $2199. If you're a university, or K-12, you will want to ask your dealer about the Epson Brighter Futures program. Discounts on pricing and lamps are available for the education market. One final note, Epson has a fleet of interactive projectors in different resolutions and brightness levels.
Good audio quality, Better than par video quality
The 485Wi offers more than enough in its core features to make it a strong contender, with a bright image, near excellent to excellent data image quality, better than par video for a data projector, 1280x800 native resolution, and a suitably short throw for an ultra short throw projector.
