The BenQ X3000i delivers bright, detailed and lag-free images, making it a brilliant choice for gaming.

For the love of gaming

The BenQ X3000i is designed for the most demanding gamers – pure and simple. CinematicColor and 4K HDR-PRO tech deliver brilliant colour and detail. 4LED brings class-leading brightness – up to 3000 ANSI Lumens. Ultra-low input lag, 240Hz refresh rate and 3-mode gaming means it’s always optimised for any game. Finally, for the sonic impact to match, the X3000i has treVolo-tuned speakers with Bongiovi DSP technology.

CinematicColor and HDR-PRO for sensational realism
Whatever the game, or movie for that matter, the BenQ X3000i delivers best-in-class colour and detail. BenQ’s CinematicColor technology delivers 100% DC—P3 colour for definitive realism. HDR-PRO maximises the HDR format for the most dynamic black rendering – perfect for when you need to spot hidden detail in the shadows.

4LED for long-lasting quality
BenQ uses an auto-balance colour system for consistent, natural colour over the projector’s lifetime. This means that even after ten years play (used for 5 hours a day on average), the colour, brightness and contrast will still be at peak performance.

Super responsive
With input lag at just 4ms, the X3000i is always quick to respond. 240Hz refresh rate provides smooth gameplay with the latest titles.

Dedicated game modes
Three, dedicated game modes optimises the projector’s settings for the best response with your choice of game. RPG gets the most from Role-Play gaming, with the emphasis on rich, cinematic colour and intense, orchestral sound. FPS (First-Person Shooter) Mode reveals hidden enemies in the shadows, with enhanced virtual surround stereo sound making them easier to locate, too. Finally, SPG Mode gets the best from Esports. Vibrant green grass and distinctive kit colour is complimented by clear announcers’ voices and the thrilling roar of a crowd.

treVolo stereo speakers for immersive audio
treVolo stereo speakers with Bongiovi Digital Power Station (DPS) technology, create a sound to match the visuals. Tired in with the dedicated game modes, the sound is optimised to the type of game you’re playing. From the cinematic sound of RPG mode to stadium sound of SPG (Sports Game) mode, the audio system puts you right at the heart of the action.

Flexible installation
For the most flexible installation, the X3000i suits ceiling, table or shelf mounting. 1.3x zoom adjustment maximises the screen area, while 2D Keystone adjustment gives you the perfect screen alignment.

Stream from Android TV
Smart TV doesn’t get much smarter than when there’s Android TV on tap. Google-certified Android TV accesses Google Play’s store of over 5000 Android apps to bring you the content you want. Check out movies, box sets, TV shows, news, sports and games – all under one roof.

Direct access to Amazon Prime video
One-button app access to Amazon Prime originals gets you straight into Amazon’s huge collection of movies and shows, including many award-winning, original programmes. (Please note, this projector does not support native Netflix – BenQ Apps manager needs to be installed from the Google Play store for Netflix to function).

Enhance every gaming sensation, with the BenQ X3000i.

Please note, this Smart projector features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps. Catch-up TV Apps may vary by region. The function and availability of apps is not covered by the manufacturer’s or Richer Sounds’ guarantee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up. Change projectors every 3 years, after about 2500 hours of bulb life. 3000 is LED, so has four times the life span to a bulb machine. Last projector was Benq 2700, which was very good, but never got pic totally square, and needed curtains closed to say watch Moto GP during the day. The 3000 set up really easily, I had it up on its ceiling mount, and set up in about 10 mins. Initial points of note are the much improved brightness level, and easily altered modes. Picture is almost pretty much a decent rectangle as well. Also noted that was worth manually altering the 4k at 60 cycles on Roku stick, rather than have it on Auto. No good playing with projector if source is not performing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, good design and great for gaming This projector features a great cube design, a terrific image and is perfect for gaming. Living in a flat means that we can't have a ceiling mounted projector or screen and we didn't want a big TV dominating the room. So this projector was the perfect answer. Switch it on and we have a picture bigger than most TVs, switch it off and there's nothing to show it was even there! Currently we are projecting onto an ordinary white wall and the quality of the image is excellent. It even comes with speakers built-in - which are great for watching everyday TV shows, but we are planning to invest in a decent sound bar for films and gaming. Really pleased with this projector - recommended, especially if you are a gamer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought the benq x3000i. Brilliant price very vast delivery wouldn’t have gone anywhere els due to how professional and how kind everyone was. They knew exactly what I needed for the room I have after coming out ti measure up the room and to meet me to discus what I was after. With in a week I had everything I need to plug and play my projector. They recommended me to a company who is going to install it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great exame of good old fashioned service Had tried a by a LED projector from AV partsmaster but after 2 failed attempts I contacted these guys and they agreed to me bringing my kit to store to connect it all up to prove it all worked. Spent more than I planned to because the service was so good. Thankyou Reading store team great service great product knowledge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nearly perfect for gaming, decent for movies I wanted a projector to replace my Optoma HD projector. My use case is 80% gaming, 20% movies. I first bought a Optoma UHD38 but when using the PS5 with it I had to set the cable to 1.4 mode to stop any flickering. This wasn’t acceptable for me as the projector could handle 2.0b. Although movies were brilliant on this and it was quiet considering it is a lamp projector. I returned it and bought the BenQ X3000i. First thing I did was watch a film. Which takes me to the bad points. The blacks on the projector are quite poor but it wasn’t all bad as the shadow detail wasn’t fully lost. The projector is only HDMI 2.0b (but this is expected from projectors). That’s the only 2 bad points. I was ready to return the projector until I turned on the PS5 it was crisp and no flickering at all, it even recognised the console as a PS4 and auto set HDR Game mode 4k 60Hz. Using this projector for gaming blew me away. I decided to live with the bad blacks because of this. Overall, happy with the purchase, had to buy a new projector mount because of the projection angle (I don’t like using keystone). I would recommend this if your primary use is gaming, otherwise I’d look elsewhere.
