"This affordable, feature-packed projector is a great way to supersize your screen." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £1200.

CinemaMaster video

Making this projector stand out from the competition is CinemaMaster video. This offers a range of benefits, giving a smoother, more detailed and richer image. Motion Enhancer makes watching fast-moving sport and action movies a far smoother and less blurry experience. Colour Enhancer and Flesh Tone create colours that are true to life. Pixel Enhancer gives extraordinary detail that makes nature documentaries breathtaking. Put all these technologies together and you have a picture that's at the top of its class.

High spec Lens Shift for ease of installation
Being able to 'shift' the lens vertically or horizontally makes installations much easier. Lens shift gives you the perfect image, even after installation, without having to sacrifice image quality. For further flexibility, 2D Keystone correction lets you place the projector off-centre if needed.

High Definition colour precision guaranteed - with Rec.709
Modelled on the High Definition TV standard, Rec.709, the W3000 uses a 6X Speed colour wheel to deliver the truest possible colour reproduction. With such accurate colour, you can enjoy lifelike images from sports, movies and documentaries.

ISFCCC certified for picture brilliance
The BenQ W3000 is ISF certified for optimum colour performance in both Day and Night modes. This means that it easily adapts to any room's ambient light levels as well as its size and layout. With excellent contrast ratio and brightness figures of 10,000:1 and 2000 lumens you can expect a natural and detailed image at all times.

1080p for Full HD resolution
The perfect resolution for Blu-ray and gaming, 1080p Full HD gives noticeably more detail than standard 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.

3D with 2D to 3D conversion
Impressive as the BenQ W3000 is in 2D, it's only when you take advantage of the 3D that the picture becomes truly immersive. Simply connect up to a suitable source, purchase the optional 3D glasses and enjoy 3D images that are every bit as bold as at the cinema. For enhanced 3D involvement, whatever the source, the W3000 also offers 2D to 3D conversion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I have this projector set up with 110inch celexon screen, Sony BDP-S7200 player, an old Sony 5.1 amp with BW speakers. The room is about 5.2 by 4.3 with projector ceiling mounted. The system is really only used for films and net flix series, No games. In a totally dark room, the projector shines the picture quality is fantastic, the processing works a treat (set to medium), and the contrast and colour is spot on. This is my first projector, and would not see the point of using one in a lit room, as all you get is grey shades instead of black, if you are lucky enough to be able to have the room layout, seating position etc, you can't beat the screen size of having a projector, and with a good audio system it is your own cinema. This W3000 is worth every penny.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a great projector. This is my second projector and is a good step up from my previous slightly cheaper one. The black levels are acceptable with some good detail in darker scenes. The image is just bright enough for viewing during the day if your room is not light controlled. The contrast is impressive and colours have a certain amount of 'pop'. I believe the colours to be accurate in comparison to my previous projector and tv's. The projector is easy to mount and can be aligned well with the lens shift. The projector has a mild hum whilst operating but I do not notice this whilst watching movies (it can also be decreased by changing the lamp setting to eco mode). On the odd occasion, maybe a couple of times per film, I notice a slight flicker of "rainbow effect" but I don't find this overly bothersome. I have found 1 dust particle near the edge of the image that is slightly noticeable in dark scenes, my previous projecter had 8+ dust spots so although not perfect this projector is a great improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cinema quality colours I have this projected onto a white wall and am blown away by the quality of the picture, particularly the colour reproduction. I'm using this solely to watch Blu Ray films, and while it can be a little sketchy in the shadow detailing department (that seems common to most DLP projectors) I think it's probably as good as you can get for the money. It also has a powerful onboard sound system, which has negated the need for a soundbar or connection to external speakers as I'm happy with the noise it makes. It was a doddle to set up and offers many tweaks for getting the picture straight and focused on the screen (or wall in my case as I'm enjoying an 11 foot wide picture) I was surprised by the fact that the picture needed almost zero calibration out of the box. The colours really are extraordinary and far superior to the Benq W1070 I upgraded from, as is the contrast and black levels. Gratitude goes to Matt at the Chelsea store for his patience and excellent customer service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great 2D, Poor 3D I purchased this recently and was immediately impressed by the short throw distance (100" at only 2.5m) and great picture quality adhering to rec 709 straight out the box. It really is a great projector, up until you try 3D… This may be an issue with how DLP 3D works or just this projector itself, but what you will find with DLP 3D is that one eye to delayed by a few milliseconds behind the other. The issue this causes is when a scene changes (switches camera view) you perceive and uncomfortable "wipe" across your vision; additionally, if a scene has fast moving objects its very uncomfortable for your eyes to focus on. I've not encountered this issue with Active Sync (LCD rather than DLP) 3D, so if 3D movie viewing is important I would avoid this projector and look at LCD based projectors. I paid the re-stocking fee and went with an LCD Epson instead but would have kept it if 3D wasn’t important to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I was looking at another more expensive PJ, but after speaking to the guys at Sheffield i was told that i could not get the throw ratio I wanted. The picture quality is fantastic for the price, this is my first Pj ( lol it wont be the last) thanks Paul for your time and patience. I also bought a Sapphire screen, which I am delighted. Thanks again all guys at Sheffield
