With a new lens and more powerful bulb, the BenQ W1070 turns a good projector into a great one.

Double the contrast ratio and a bigger picture

The new BenQ W1070 gives even more lifelike images and greater depth of view, thanks to its brighter bulb. Compared to the previous W1060, the W1070 doubles the contrast ratio from 5,000:1 to 10,000:1, and by changing the lens, BenQ has made the W1070 more suited to typical UK living room sizes. When the projector is positioned 2m away from the screen, an image of 79" (200cm) is possible whereas, before, it was just under 57" (144cm).

1080p for Full HD resolution
The perfect resolution for Blu-ray and gaming, 1080p Full HD gives noticeably more detail than 720p HD resolution. Suddenly, you'll see texture in the grass on the pitch, subtle detail in wildlife documentaries and a whole new depth of image. The larger the screen and the closer you sit the greater the benefit, making 1080p more impressive on a projector at home compared to a TV set.

Pitch black not required and 3D entertainment
With a brightness of 2000 ANSI, the BenQ W1070 doesn't require a pitch black room to impress. Even during daylight conditions, the W1070 is bright enough to provide a decent picture quality. Impressive as the BenQ1070 is in 2D, it's only when you take advantage of the 3D system that the picture becomes truly immersive.

Set to connect
Twin HDMI sockets allows two HD sources, such as a Blu-ray player and games console. There's also a full range of analogue connections, including component, composite, S-VHS and a VGA PC. Add in an RCA audio output plus RS232 control interface and you've got a comprehensive set of sockets that rivals many more expensive projectors.

As a first step into 3D projectors or as an impressive portable, the BenQ W1070 is a tough act to beat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lamp failure after less than 500 hours Disappointed that lamp light flashing red after limited hours in operation. I always powered down correctly and very little dust so not impressed that I’ll have to replace lamp so soon (I doubt it’s reached 200 hours use yet). On the plus side the picture quality was great when it was working - Blue Planet 2 looked awesome. I presume lamps are not covered under VIP warranty?.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture quality... easy set up I've had this for a couple of weeks now. Upgraded from a dated optoma projector. I did plenty of research and narrowed my decision to two projectors. After speaking to staff at richer sounds explaining my set up and room size... I decided to go for the w1070. I'm projecting a 120" image from just under 4m. The clarity and quality are great.... as for the the rest of the set up.... Yamaha av, monitor audio speakers...... still have to get the atmos enabled Speakers.... but all in all the picture and sound is better than expected. It truly is a immersive experience. The staff were very helpful in the shop.... I'm glad I went for this projector. And bought the extra 6 year warranty... for the money this is truly an awesome bit of kit.... I can't warrant paying big money for a 4K at the moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Picture Quality Bought this for my local rugby club and simple to setup & manage, we have multiple sources so needs to be easy to use & does the job very well plus added advantage of an integral speaker which is good enough for any TV sports commentary in a noisy bar !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best projector!!! Bought this from RicherSounds Reading! I had shortlisted other projectors and this was not in my list! But thanks to Archie!(sales rep) who said "Check this one you will change your mind" and you know what I did!! There are tons of reviews about this projector on internet so I wont go in detail. Only one thing is there are best settings for this projector on internet, apply those and trust me the experience is amazing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! This Benq Projector has taken my film/ documentary/ Interviews to be a total joy. Such a crisp picture. Very nice and good sound coming out of the projector's speakers. You can make the picture big or small. I have it big like full wall like at the movies. Considering getting a sound system, the 3D's glasses to make it even better. This projector does wireless apparently but you have to purchase a separate kit. What really made a difference for me was the helpful and patient staff at Richard Sound Brighton. Great Company to buy from. Recommended.
