    amazing projector, anyone thinking twice about this (and who needs a projector) stop proctrasting! this project is rrp $2000 and i bought it 6 months ago for $1700. this price trumps it.

    Hot Rep, if you want some more interest in this deal, you'll have to post a bit more about the W2000.

    Even I have no idea what makes the W2000 worth spending the extra $600 over all the excellent sub-$1000 1080p projectors - and I love projectors and own 2 from BenQ.

    Is it the Rec 709 colours…? You're not selling it very well.

    Unless you're posting something lots of people know lots about, always post a list of specs/features, why it's good, a search of staticice showing your price is the lowest available, like so:

    http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=BenQ+W2000+...

    …and a few reviews from reputable sites like projectorcentral.com, the official product page:

    http://www.benq.com.au/product/projector/w2000/

    …stuff like that, to get more people interested.

    Hi was not sure if posting more would be viewed as pushy :)

    Anyhow the W2000 is a great projector for the money. It's truly mid range and don't be concerned with contrast ratio as most fib about it quoting a mode you can't use in a dark room (on/off).

    Naturally visit benq.com.au web site for all the technical info. A few years ago BenQ went through a quality problem phase, but the new range are just as reliable as any. They/we could not offer the 3 year warranty if this were not the case.

    The W2000 is a good all round projector, feel free to call us on 1800 008899 for more personal info re your particular needs.

        If gaming lag is a sticking point for you BenQ have a gaming projector that has the lowest Lag on the market:

        This is designed from the ground up to be a gaming projector.

          there is also a "gaming mode" on the w2000 projector, but i dont bother switching to it, im sure it'll improve things.

        • +1 vote

          @sachz:

          It certainly does - it takes the processing out of the image and just allows the "data flow" through as quickly as possible!

          The picture quality seems to drop a little but if speed is everything (and for FPS gamers it is!) then this mode is worth playing around with.

    Hi Store rep, looked at it online and was interested! How do you make it wireless by the way?

    These days, big tvs are so cheap. Not worth it unless you have a totally dark room and invest in a screen.

      Really? Show me a 100" tv for less than $1600.

      • +2 votes

        or a 150" TV which is where people are headed now with projectors (go big, or go home).

        •  

          Haha yea this projector goes up to 100", 55" is standard small now mate

        •  

          @OnlinePred: more than 100"

          I'm watching at 120" currently.

          will be bumping it to 150" RSN……..

        •  

          @sachz: how far away are you sitting? Like 3-4 metres or something?

          @OnlinePred: at least, yea.

        •  

          @sachz: wow yea okay defs need that then! I'm 1.8 away from my 60" tv which I believe is optimum THX spec.

      Totally dark room and screen

      Neither of those are required by modern projectors (and this one is not even close to needing them).

      I've seen some amazing looking 80 inch 4K OLED TVs in the shops, but at the end of the day, that extra brightness and contrast is only a subtle improvement over the excellent picture my W1070 projector produces, not a dramatic one. The extra size of my 100 inch screen is a more significant advantage.

      For immersion and enjoyment in movies and games, the $800 projector still beats the $3000 TV, in my opinion.

    The wireless option is expensive, if anyone is worried about input lag I would not use it. If you can run a HDMI cable it's better.

    http://www.hot.com.au/product/benq-wdp01-full-hd-wireless-ki...

    • +2 votes

      …but if you cannot run a cable the WDP01 is a great solution. http://www.benq.com.au/product/projector/the_benq_wireless_f...

      The latency on this unit only adds about 10ms of delay making the lag still faster than most TV's.

      A cable is generally the best option for a connection but in an older house / 2 storey / rental where that is not and option this is the next best thing!

      I know - "it'sso 1984" (like when LCD projection was developed) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCD_projector

      ;)

      Different types of projection technologies keep everyone inventing and trying to keep up.

      DLP, LCOS, LCD today - who knows what the future holds!!

    PS Award review

    http://www.avhub.com.au/product-reviews/sound-image/benq-w20...

    "..Conclusion
    With the W2000, BenQ has produced a high value-for-money home theatre projector that provides very strong picture quality and a 3D picture which we doubt could be surpassed."

  •  

    Would this be a good substitute for a regular lounge room TV? Was looking at a 75", but if this is of equal or better quality….

    Does it work as well in daylight/artificial light in comparison to a totally dark cinema room?

    •  

      Pjs are great in addition to a TV. Don't buy it instead of unless you wish to sit in the dark.

      •  

        We actually have no TV, projector only, and not in a dark room. Use it during the day for kids TV shows, no problem.

        But I'd still mostly agree with this - the image is watchable but slightly washed out if the blinds are open. Plus your bulb will start to dim a lot in only 5 years or so if you run it for over 5 hours a day.

        We used to have a cheapo $200 Soniq 32" inch for the kids afternoon/weekend TV, and just lay it down on it's face and project onto the off-white wall behind it when it's time for movies or videogames. Worked great.

        So yes, it'll completely replace your big, expensive TV that you bought for it's size and picture quality, to watch cinematic movies/games in the afternoon/evening. But no, even the very bright PJs like this one get a little washed-out in bright blinds-open daylight, so someone in your household might still want a crappy TV for reality shows and kids shows for either long hours or during daylight.

          Great! We work during daylight hours so would only really be watching in the evening.

      Wow. I just checked and it's seven years now since I originally bought my Epson projector from hot.com.au. Time flies.

      Anyhow, back to the point - what I did was mount a smaller (50 inch, recently upgraded to 60 inch) tv on the wall. When we have 'movie/game night' the projector screen lowers down in front of the tv at which point in time we have 3 metres of video goodness. Inches? How quaint. ;-)

      Don't have a dedicated cinema room, just some curtains on the windows we can draw if required. Can you watch it during the day without the curtains? Well, yes, in particular if you have a decent screen but it is not great. I expect this newer projector is probably going to be brighter than mine, but I think it's best to go both. Just save some money getting a slightly smaller tv and put that money saved towards the projector…. 150 inch projector screen is not out of the question with some projectors - four times the real estate of the 75inch screen… just saying…. :-)

    Hi Even normal TVs may have trouble when the light shines on them and/or you can get reflections.

    The best way to put it would be if you can control the light especially no light directly onto the PJ screen / image then it's an option. The room does not have to be totally dark, personally prefer some light on as it's easier on the eyes.

    For people that want to watch a PJ in bright conditions there are specialist screens such as:

    http://www.hot.com.au/price/dnp-supernova-92-inch-daylight-p...

    Most people are happy without such upgrades! Personal preference is small TV and BIG Projection image.. That way it's like going to the movies without all the paper crunching :)
