BenQ Introduces W1100 And W1200 Full HD Projectors For Home Cinema Buffs

HDTVs may be the hot "thing," but let's not forget about the real display hero. The one you enjoy each time you take the seat in a cinema. Yes, the projector. BenQ's W1100 and W1200 Full HD projectors have been revealed today, built around TI's DLP technology and supporting a native 1080p resolution. The W1100 has a twelve-lens optical system, full 10-bit color processor, 2000 ANSI lumens, multiple A/V inputs and a 4500:1 contrast ratio. The built-in color management system also adds balanced hue, adjusted to the users preferred contrast, brightness, color temperature, gamma, and white balance levels. This guy also has built-in SRS WOW HD sound tech as well as dual 10-watt speakers with dedicated sound chambers.


Like the W1100, the W1200 offers full HD 1080p resolution and a full 10-bit color processor, complemented by a brightness of 1800 ANSI lumens and an ultra-high 5000:1 contrast ratio. The W1100 and W1200 are available at MSRPs of $1,499 and $1,999, respectively. Not inexpensive by any means, but hey, you always wanted your own home cinema.

I have been really surprised how BenQ has been stepping up their game!

Although that still seems a bit pricey for only having 5000:1 contrast? It wont really be forward compatible with any type of 3D system? It is nice that it has 1080p, but at those specs you can currently get a similar speced model for under 1K. The Optima HD20 is a better deal on the egg, if you are just looking for a 1080HD projector.

SO Ben,....Take out the unnecessary speakers and other frilly junk, and give us a reasonably priced projector that can handle 3D 1080p. After all anyone who is going to use this as a HT projector is just going to use it for viewing and have the rest of the system routed through the receiver.
