”Might lean towards gaming more than home-theatre, but the BenQ TH585 offers plenty of reasons to be considered as a living-room favourite.”’Stuff’.

Gaming, movies and TV on the big screen

For a truly immersive experience, bigger is always better. Optimised for screen sizes between 60” – 200”, the TH585 delivers a thrill far in excess of a big screen TV. You don’t need a big room for a big picture, either. A mighty, 100” image is possible with the projector under 3.5m away.

Lights on brightness
Advancing projector technology means that you no longer need to watch in darkness. Thanks to the 3500 lumens brightness, you’ll enjoy a crisp, bright image, even during the daytime or with the lights on.

Optimised for gaming
With a low input lag of just 16ms, the TH585 is ideal for smooth gameplay. A faster response makes you quicker to the draw in shoot ‘em ups and able to ace that personal best in a race. The special Game Mode takes the TH585 one-step further in making this the gamers’ choice of projector. Enhancing dark and shadowy areas, it helps you spot enemies and hidden treasure.

Easy set-up
Thanks to 1.1x zoom, digital lens shift and auto vertical keystone, it’s easy to get just the right image. These technologies mean that the image isn’t just perfectly sized but that it’s also perfectly aligned and cropped.

Flexible inputs
Featuring twin HDMI inputs plus a VGA PC socket, you can connect up to three devices – perfect for a games console, Blu-ray player and PC. A USB interface powers an optional media device, such as a Smart TV stick or BenQ’s optional QCast Mirror stick.

Bring the entertainment home, with the BenQ TH585.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Projector, Good Brightness Purchased this for a bright office and the quality is fine but excellent with blinds closed and the room a little darker. Watched outside in the garden as a test and it’s OK in a shady area and very good at night but in a square green gazebo with sides up it’s excellent in all but the very brightest conditions. 5*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic bright picture I bought this to replace a Elephas Q9, so this is my second projector. The Elephas despite false claims of 5500 Lumens would probably be more on par with 1000lumens now that I compare it to the Benq. The picture and brightness of the Benq are fantastic, it's very sharp and bright, great for our bright Ambient room, it works well in daylight, obviously not direct sunlight on the screen but very few projectors can handle that. One thing to note is that the angle of the throw is quite extreme, so if you are buying this for a coffee table it is perfect as that is what it is clearly designed for, but if you want this on a shelf more then 6ft high be prepared to have to angle it to about 30 degrees, even with the digital vertical offset maxed out its still extreme. Rainbow effect is quite strong at the start, but you get used to it, it's more noticeable the bigger the screen and how fast your eyes move across it, so reading subtitles on a 120in screen you will see flicks of it as your eyes move down quickly to read the text and back up to the screen. You won't find a better projector at a better price and Richer sounds is the cheapest I have found and believe me I looked around for about a month

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality and great price. Decided to go for a projector instead of a TV. As it was my first time buying buying a projector, I wasn't sure if it'd "good enough", seeing there are many more expensive models. Turns out it works very well, the image isn't really watered down (something I was worried about in comparison to a TV) and setting everything up was dead easy. The darker the room, the better, but can still watch any time of the day. Paired up with Chromecast and spent my lockdown watching Netflix. Much recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Entry Level Gaming Projector I bought this a few weeks back as a cinema replacement and for the fact that my one year old gets into everything so we wanted to stay away from having to fine a safe home for a TV. At 3500 ANSI lumens it is bright enough for night and day viewing easily. 8ms input lag in gaming mode means that you don't feel any delays with controller input. As we are renting we can't drill but came up with creative solutions to get the projector as high as possible to limit the need for keystone correction. At around 3.2m throw (with +3 keystone correction) we have around an 83" diagonal image. Screens are always recommended but this displays easily on whites and has colour correction for around 3 different colours should you have a non-white wall. Easy on the eyes but the whites can be blinding in the dark. Recommended to preset for day and night viewing. Overall great value for money. One year old doesn't even know it exists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FULL HD PROJECTOR This was my 5th projector having gone very budget previously with projectors from Goodee, Bomaker, Yaber, Wimius etc. Common thing with these was the claims of 6000-6500 lumens of brightness when the truth would have been nearer 1000-1200 probably.Decided to spend more and go for one of the big 3 in Optoma, Benq or Epson. I didnt want to spend above £500 and checked out reviews and Youtube for all the contenders. When I saw Richer doing the Benq TH585 at an £80 discount against most of the others I went for it. I am so glad I did as this 1080p projector is superb. 3500 Lumens actually means it with great brightness even with just blinds closed and sunny outside. Sharpness and colour are fantastic on watching Wonder Woman 84 on Bluray particularly the opening 10 mins of IMAX footage. I am not a gamer but daily watching of Blurays played through my LG 4K Bluray player are excellent. Added bonuses of the lens aims upwards so my tripod is at its lowest instead of 53 inches up in the air to get the picture squared above the sofa. A 110 inch screen from 10-12 feet is perfect for the room I use it in. Another bonus with blinds closed is you can easily use it on Lampsave setting and get 15000 hours on the lamp instead of 4000 on Normal setting. Also at all lamp settings the fan is much,much quieter than my previous budget projectors. Just a couple of downsides, one being no lens cap supplied to keep dust at bay and pretty awful sound from the 10watt mono speaker. I routinely connect my LG Soundbar and Subwoofer to the Bluray player so no problem there. All in all very happy and will keep this till I can afford to move up to a 4k Laser Ultra Short Throw model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real cinema experience This replaced an ancient Viewsonic projector which we've used happily for more than 15 years. But in lockdown we were using it heavily and the resolution and brighteness were both unsatisfactory. The BenQ is a revelation and doesn't even need a dark room to work brilliantly. Colours are saturated and the resolution is almost painfully good (every vein visible on contestants' faces in the Pottery Throwdown). It's pretty quiet too. Only failure is the sound, which is feeble to the point of inaudability, but as we use an external sound system it isn't a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright picture, movie nights are back! Bought to replace an aged projector we had rather than replacing the lamp. Delivery was 2 days earlier than expected so we had a bonus movie night that weekend. Set up was just a matter of ensuring it was centred to our screen and the right distance away. Our Fire Tv stick was able to be powered from the unit usb so less leads! A few picture settings for cinema, gaming etc and some user settings available. Popcorn out and able to watch our movie 5 minutes after opening the box. This worked great in a lit room so we expect it will work well for our summer outdoor movie nights as the sun goes down. Very happy with our purchase (particularly the long warranty)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Projetor Just bought this projector after months of research, trying to find a good but inexpensive home cinema projector. Though online this model is widely claimed as a great gaming projector- its excellent for film and TV. I have a small room but even at just under 3 meters back, it gives a big display. Amazing brightness, I can watch it in the day time. The fan is audible but not distracting. Handy remote. All very simple and user friendly. I have it working with Google Chromecast and its perfect. I am so glad I went the brand BenQ over other brands that promised more. The quality is great! Would recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for money! I'm pleased to inform you that the BenQ TH585 is excellent as a home cinema as well as a gaming projector. I'm using it with my 100 inches screen and I absolutely love it. Compared to my old projector quality is mind blowing. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for some lockdown entertainment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly efficient service and great prices Amazed at the efficiency of the service, from placing the order on the phone to it arriving was less than 24 hours (and despite being warned by the chap on the phone, because of Covid related delivery delays, could be 7 days or more. As usual great value for money and extended guarantee

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture, good price Bought it a week ago. Picture is great, it is pretty quiet when running. The speakers are not great but wouldn't expect them to be. Only concern is that the adjustable front leg can be a bit wobbly when fully extended which is not ideal for a projector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed Spent months looking for a decent projector. Didn’t believe anything on Amazon. Trusted Richer sounds - glad I did. Spent more than the entry level ones on Amazon but it’s worth it. I’m a novice but picture quality is brilliant even in day and easy to use. Don’t waste your money on the rubbish on Amazon, get this. And with the guarantee what more do you need

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant for the price. Bought this to replace our aging BenQ projector that was still going strong after 15 years of use for watching movies at home but which was lacking an HDMI interface and wasn't HD. This is a great replacement. Lovely bright, sharp image with good contrast (to my eyes anyway). You can hear the fan during very quiet scenes but I just imagine I'm in an old cinema with the film projector whirring behind me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased - Good picture - very easy to set up Bought before Christmas for family movies. Replaced previous projector. Very easy to set up especially the keystone though only keystone one direction (can't remember whether vertical or horizontal) but a wiggle lined it up fine. Very bright and much quieter fan than old projector. We plugged home cinema with surround sound into it so we don't use the projector sound (vol 0). I never gave any thought to fitting on our screen previously but this time throw distance was really a key factor - projectors seemed to have changed in size of image and lack of zoom in - it is quite a big image even though we deliberately went for this model. Ours has to be 4.8m away from screen which made image quite big. It does fit for us. If you are ceiling mounting it won't matter I suppose you can adjust it. The image also seems to be positioned higher/upwards compared to our last prj. So we had to prop it up at the back or we would have needed to move it down a shelf which would have meant people causing shadows if they moved. Image is fine though. It is smaller than our last one which means it fits the shelf better although doesn't seem to be as robust as our old projector but good enough and a very decent price. We are really pleased with it. Hope lamp life is as promised! .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERB BENQ PROJECTOR I shopped around and did some comparison research & I was not disappointed with the TH585, Blacks are immersive and clear, HD Quality is superb, details like hair and flames look perfect, hooked up with high quality Russ Andrews Power Kord and QED HDMI, Audio is good for projector speaker but I have used both 2 Phono to 3.5 to my Amp and Optical cable to Sky Q box for Cinema Sound & neither disappoint. Really easy to use, Tombstone is genius and sound mute easy to navigate. Fantastic using Sky, Amazon Firestick, SKy Q and Playstation 4 is incredible too. Unbelievable picture during bright daylight too. Projected to 120" with no loss of quality, really impresses and would recommend highly. Unbelievable value plus warranty was a no brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great projector Excellent picture, I can't imagine how any of the vastly more expensive projectors could significantly improve on it. It is bright enough to be used in day light, albeit in slightly gloomy conditions. Not sure how it would manage on a bright summer day. But so far, very pleased with it. Staff were very helpful. I was initially intending to buy an Optoma but the sale person recommended this one because it is a bit brighter for day time viewing and actually slightly cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great budget projector I’m impressed with this projector for the money. For my room and content, 4K wouldn’t be worth it compared to a TV so I’m fine with this being 1080p. The picture is clear, bright and has good colour and contrast. I’m just projecting on a really budget screen and it works well. It has plenty of control for getting an image to fit with an optical zoom and has wall colour choices if needed. It’s not ridiculously loud for its brightness but I found the normal brightness unnecessary in my living room once the curtains are shut so I changed the lighting mode to eco. This lowers the brightness but also makes the fan very quiet. The brightness and picture still look great to me. I’m projection to a 92” cheap screen in an average sized living room. I have it mounted upside down under a shelf on the wall behind my sofa. I’m very happy with this for staying at home

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value projector I bought the BenQ a month ago to replace an Optima projector that stopped working after just three years (and no, I don't game or even watch that much television). It's incredibly easy to set up and the picture is clear and precise, it goes on really quickly, no waiting for it to warm up and is quiet too. I am really happy with this projector, it was good value and is perfect for my needs of watching big sports matches and tv dramas - and Bake Off! I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good item at that price range I purchased this projector a month ago and am happy. Its bright, and reasonably sharp. Maybe a bit louder than more expensive models but nothing that distracts once watching. Easy and clear menus. Nice look, textured outer case. Very quick setup. Would recommend at this point.
