BenQ W1070 Projector Review

The BenQ W1070 is the company’s newest home video projector. The W1070 features native 1080p resolution and a maximum light output of 2,000 lumens, meaning it has the pixels to show HD movies in their native definition and the capacity to brighten up any room, even if it’s not entirely black.

Video streaming projectors, as the names suggest, are intended for usage in areas other than a home theater, such as guestrooms and bedrooms. Because black pitch is far less of a priority when environmental light is present, they are much more likely to feature more light output, inbuilt speakers, and lower resolution than home theater projectors. Home cinema projectors, on the other hand, are designed for darker environments and have an increased contrast ratio.


A good home movie theater laser projector might have cost more than £1,000 and taken up a significant amount of room.

The BenQ W1070+ DLP projector, which is getting closer to the price of a quality flatscreen TV, has an adequate luminosity to be used in daylight and an all-important Full HD quality.

It’s remarkably little, dimensions 312x104x244mm and weighing 2.75kg, and the clean white style is simple to live with. It also works well in daylight, due to the 2,200 ANSI Lumens bulb on this single-chip DLP projector.

This is critical, especially during the summer’s long hours, and if you want to use the W1070+ at work. The DVD player, set-top box, and games console must all be moved to where the projector is. This is a thing of existence difficulty with  Old projectors, and one of the reasons they have never really taken off in the ordinary living room. Not so with the W1070+ if you choose for BenQ’s additional Bluetooth transmitter and receiver (which supports uncompressed 1080p 2D or 3D and has three HDMI inputs), however, I doubt the WDS01 Wireless Full HD Kit will be common at £249.

The W1070+ has two HDMI inputs, as well as composite multimedia, composite video, S-video, D-sub 15-pin for a PC, an RS232 management interface, and two 3.5mm sound outputs.

The BenQ W1070 specification chart claims the highest capacity of 2,000 lumens. The experiment measurement really does admittedly evaluate 2019 lumens, but mostly in Dynamic mode, and only after users continued to increase Contrast adjustment to their maximum limits. With the light at maximum power, our test unit recorded 1554 lumens in Dynamic mode using the manufacturer’s default settings.

That’s the highest output we could get in any useful setting, therefore it’s the projector’s practical limit. If you need all of the lumens the projector has to offer and don’t mind sacrificing color accuracy or brightness to get there, the dynamic model is a fantastic option. This is a circumstance that will emerge from time to time with a projector built for usage in ambient light.

Standard and Cinema were the two modes we utilized the most, as previously indicated. Basic mode, with 1271 lumens, is well-suited for usage in a living area. It accentuates brightness while maintaining dynamic range and adding a hint of blue to the general monochrome, leading to an overall color intensity of roughly 7000K. For common film and video applications, it’s a well-balanced picture mode.

Using Cinema mode, our test device measured 1220 lumens at an estimated 6800K color temperature, which isn’t substantially different from the default settings. Eco option decreases light output by approximately 30%, ending in 880 lumens in Cinema mode if this is too much light (which it may be until you adjust the room illumination).

SmartEco mode may be a little perplexing. Although the mode promises to alter brightness established on-screen content, this is not a dynamic lighting mode. Once SmartEco is chosen, light brightness doesn’t really cycle up and down. Instead, the projector determines how bright the bulb should be depending on the information being displayed, and thereafter locks emission at that intensity.
