I have the same projector. $729 is a steal. The color quality is seriously impressive and it's very bright so we use it instead of our old 55" Plasma TV. It doesn't look washed out like classroom projectors at all, it's an insanely crisp clean image. Better than the plasma. It's also DLP chip so it looks very similar to movie theater quality. There is no way I am ever going back to flatscreen TV's after owning this projector.

Look at the reviews on amazon.

u/HumorAdjacent · 14 pointsr/gaming

I don't make that much money, I just know how to spend wisely and I don't have kids so I have more disposable income than some people. Like I said, it was like $1200 back in 2014. The screen cost around $100 to make and the mount was another $100 or so. So roughly $1400 for the video part of this setup. I vaguely remember the audio system was around $600 altogether cuz I found a crazy deal on the speakers and then later found a crazy deal on a receiver, so around $2000 for the whole thing.

I'm planning on eventually upgrading to 4K (this setup is 1080P only), but projectors that do HDR & 4K are still WAYYYYY too expensive. Because it's an old model now, you can find a W1070 for like $600. Up until like 5 years ago this wasn't really do-able unless you were willing to settle for 720P or spend like $3000+, but there are now a bunch of nice options if you're looking for a 1080P projector in the $600 to $1200 range. That may seem like a lot of money if you haven't gone TV shopping before, but that's right in line with what you'll see shopping for pretty much anything over 50" that isn't a garbage house brand. Main difference is the screen is "Whatever you can fit in the room" as opposed to 65".

u/Brown_Menace · 11 pointsr/hometheater

If you're willing to stretch your budget just a bit more, the BenQ w1070 is raved for it's price range and will compete with many pricier projectors. It's selling for $585 on amazon at the time of this post. There are newer models of it, but it was the gold standard <$1k projector when I was shopping around a year ago. Otherwise, the Optoma HD142X is also well received, athough again $48 over your price range. I personally purchased an Acer H5380BD a year ago around $400, with a factory refurb currently selling on amazon for $280 (steal price!!). If you're buying new though, I'd recommend stretching out for the w1070, or newer BenQ generation if you can save up to the $700 mark. The w1070 is worth the extra cash compared to my Acer, but I do enjoy my Acer quite a bit and would jump on that refurb if you're comfortable purchasing a refurb. Things have changed in the past year though, so might help to do a quick search on wire cutter or other sources for newer tech.

ninja edit: if the BenQ was <$600 when I got my Acer, would have purchased without a doubt. It was around $750 when I was holding out for it but got too impatient.

double edit: Acer 5382 is a brigher version of the 5380 for $420. These are 720p though and I'd still recommend the BenQ. As someone else mentioned, H6510BD is a solid projector as well, but the BenQ w1070 was repeatedly named best value for a reason.

u/jupiterkansas · 9 pointsr/hometheater

I wouldn't get a projector that wasn't 1080p and wasn't well reviewed. My recommendation is the Benq W1070 which is $655 right now.. It can be professionally calibrated, offers 3D, and is very bright with rich colors.

u/misterflappypants · 7 pointsr/audiophile

Hey guys! I think current state of my craigslist stereo is pretty solid, so here are some pics, info, and street prices!

EDIT: $2,250 total cost including cables

I’ve been slowly tweaking and building up a stereo over the last year from stuff I’ve purchased off Craigslist. My girlfriend and I are slowly adventuring back to the east coast from San Francisco, and we set up shop in Bozeman, Montana for a year, in this bizarre basement apartment in the city’s only formal apartment building, built in 1914.

The one thing a carpeted basement apartments excels at? Acoustics!

  1. B&W 805 Nautilus (w/stands: $1400) - I purchased these from a really cool guy who handled bags at SFO. He even let me pay over two paychecks! The imaging and upper-mid detail on these are INSANE. I’ll reserve judgement on the frequency response until I can add some acoustic treatments to the walls, especially on either side of the screen. Sliding a sine wave tone up and down the frequency range seems to reveal some surprising 3-4db dips and peaks in the response from its low end (45hz or so) all the way up into the 150hz range. I assume this has a lot to do with room acoustics. I need an SPL meter or a measurement microphone I think.

  2. Energy S10.2 Subwoofer ($85) - Pretty impressive overall for the price. I would purchase this at eBay prices for sure. The front panel has a smooth crossover and volume dial so you can really do a good job matching up to the speakers. Seems to solidly reach down below 30hz with no problem and decent detail.

  3. Emotiva XDA-2 DAC ($150) - FANTASTIC DAC for what it sells for used. Fully balanced analog circuitry with both RCA+XLR out, 24/192khz, and a hella solid aluminum remote. I removed the gross silver decorative face plate things, and took face apart to disable Emotiva's unfortunate and tacky "Shenzhen Blue" LED rings around every fucking button, and now it looks as good as it sounds.

  4. Rotel RB-1080 (~$500) 200w x 2 (350w x 2 @ 4ohms for you power hungry electrostat guys). At first it blew me away. I still think this amp is an insane deal for what I paid for it, but the more I listen to it, and with more components and speakers, the more I don’t wonder if it does fit the online forum descriptions of “harsh/dry/fatiquing/analytic/etc). Maybe it’s the 805’s, but something about a lack of warmth and lack of clear present midrange seems to be afoot. I want to break my craigslist rule and save up for a used ~$2k Mark Levinson off eBay or something, to give these speakers an amp they really deserve.

    Other things to mention:

  5. Screen: 100”, painted on the wall with cheap gray hardware store paint, with 2” black felt tape around it from amazon. I didn’t want to wait to order the Behr Silver Screen samples from Home Depot’s website, so I went to my local Ace Hardware and they color matched it from the computer! The screen cost me about $20 total including a foam roller.

  6. Projector: (BenQ W1070, about $550) - This is my second one, and haven't had a single issue with either. I bought and used one in 2014-2015 for video installations in grad school (with fantastic results) as well as playing around with it at home. This combo looks unbelievably good, with great blacks and plenty of lumens to watch TV or play casual games in moderate room light. I frequently play games with half of the track lighting on!! As far as projector lag goes it’s minimal- I just beat the new Doom on ultra violence, so it works fairly well. Not saying it was remotely easy, but I didn’t feel like projector lag had anything to do with it!

  7. Rotel RDV-1080 DVD/CD transport ($50) - Cheap...visually matches the amp. I use it as a transport only and COAX out to the DAC.

  8. SurgeX SX-2120-SEQ ($5) sequential power conditioner and surge protector. Got it for $5 at an "employee auction" when I briefly worked for an AV company that would give employees the first dibs on any old equipment they pulled from remodeled luxury homes.

  9. Black metal+ glass AV shelf ($40) - Looks great and super solid. I dunno anything else about it.
u/SirMaster · 6 pointsr/hometheater

Well, think how it looks in a movie theater. Home projectors look as good and often times even better than what you see in a real theater given your room is set up properly with proper light control.

Personally I'll never go back to a TV.

I mean, I'm sure a Panasonic ZT or VT looks better, but IMO a projector still looks "excellent" and the size does so much more for the experience for me with a 136" image vs. a 60".

Here are some samples of the screen in my apartment:


See if you can stretch your budget a bit.

u/reseph · 4 pointsr/Games

Just FYI, most projectors these days have 3D built in. A projector is my next buy, most likely.

They are much better prices than I remember 15 years ago (like $3000). Example: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A2T6X0K/

It's a BenQ W1070

u/Portable_Calculator · 3 pointsr/hometheater

Benq w1070 Projector

Denon-1713 receiver

edit: If anyone is wondering, 89" fixed screen. Picture doesn't really do it justice.

I absolutely love it. Could not be happier. Feel free to ask any questions.

u/Pheelip · 3 pointsr/hometheater


Ive got it and its a fantastic bargain. Full 1080, good lumens and high contrast. Plus supports 3d if thats your thing.

u/LivingTheDr3am · 3 pointsr/hometheater

Also seeing this Benq projector getting good reviews and it appears to have multi-channel audio out compared to the previous projector I linked. Price goes up, but it seems to be a pretty solid contender.

u/zim2411 · 3 pointsr/projectors

> EDIT: Mabey I should clarify, IS it worth paying the extra 400+ for 1080p? thanks

I absolutely think so. At times, I find my 1080p PT-AE4000 throwing a 112" image and viewed from 10 ft isn't even high res enough. I would not buy a new 720p projector at this point in time.

As for the Acer H5370BD:

> Rainbows. The H5370BD uses a 2X-speed RGBCMY color wheel. As a result, if you are sensitive to rainbow artifacts you are probably going to see them in spades on the H5370BD. If you aren't sure whether or not you are sensitive to DLP rainbows, here's how you can figure it out. Order the H5370BD from a vendor with a generous return policy, then pop in a Blu-ray copy of either The Dark Knight or Quantum of Solace. Both movies have bright highlights moving quickly against dark backgrounds, which tend to induce rainbows more often than other types of content. If you see flashes of color where they shouldn't be, you're seeing the rainbow effect. If you see it only occasionally it may not be worth worrying about. If you see them frequently they will drive you nuts with distraction and you will want a different projector.

From: http://www.projectorcentral.com/acer_h5370bd_3d_home_video_projector_review.htm?page=Limitations

Gaming will have high contrast fast moving scenes and you will get rainbow artifacts. If you're fine with that, go for it. The input lag is quite low which is good for gaming.

I would personally save up and go for the 1080p Benq W1070 though.

u/stefifofum · 3 pointsr/criterion

If you live in a place where you could mount a screen, or have a room setup with enough space to use a stand, and you truly want to get the theater experience, you can get a solid projector-based setup for $1500.

BenQ W1070 - $700

16:9 100' retractable screen - $80

Assume ~$70 for a blu ray player, if you don't want to just get an HDMI cable and adapter and use your laptop for now, and that leaves $650 for audio, which can certainly get you a very strong two-channel system. Especially if you live in an area with a healthy craigslist trade. Then you can work your way up to 5.1 over time if you feel the need to.

Keep an eye out on craigslist for Infinity Primus P363 tower speakers (and for upgrading to 5.1, other Infinity Primus speakers as well). The Primus line has just gone out of production, but they're great speakers for their price, and the 363 towers could regularly be had for $200 a pair on sale at Amazon or Fry's, so they got around quite a bit and pop up pretty regularly secondhand.

In general soundbars and other home-theater-in-a-box setups are a good thing to avoid if you can afford to step up a notch, and I think you could with your budget, especially your budget + some patience for sales or your budget + craigslist.

I can't say I'm an a/v guru, but this is the core of my setup and I typically get "I would never leave my couch..." reactions when folks come over, haha.

You'll probably find more advice over in /r/hometheater, too.

u/bigpolar70 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

First, since everything is already wired, you need to make sure you get a model that works with your screen size and mounting distance.

I like this calculator: http://www.projectorcentral.com/projection-calculator-pro.cfm

Good luck!

Next, most reviews say the best entry-level DLP projector is the BenQ W1070 or the updated W1075. If you watch for a sale you can get them very close to your price range.



The main reason they are so well reviewed is they are one of the few entry level projectors that have a true RGBRGB color wheel. This results in a lower listed brightness (because they don't have a clear segment to cheat the test), but a greater perceived brightness during actual use. They also have better color balance without calibration right out of the box.

In a blacked out room they should be more than bright enough.

u/CUHWT94 · 2 pointsr/projectors

I was also looking into buying this as a first projector. A word for OP, if you're not pressed for time then you should wait to buy. There's a website that lets you track prices on Amazon to let you see the deal you're getting. If you were planning on buying from amazon then it looks like the best time to buy is January.

u/medic__ · 2 pointsr/mancave

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but isn't that projector the BenQ W1070? That price listed for it has shot up for the Holidays, usually it goes for around $100 less than currently listed on Amazon. It's a really popular projector on this subreddit and for good reason.

u/originalmoose · 2 pointsr/projectors

If you are looking for a good* cheap projector you are on the right track with BenQ. But if you ask me this is not that great of a deal. It's native resolution is only 1200x800. For another $110 you can get this. Which not only is native 1080p and has a much better selection of inputs but its pretty much the best projector you can get under $1000

u/DronesWorkHard · 2 pointsr/hometheater

you cant get a projector to 1080 res. at that price point. But you can if you go $50 more

benq w1070

youll need another 200 for a screen

u/a1blank · 2 pointsr/Android

Well, once you get a projector, the only significant limit on the screen size is the size of your wall and how dark you want to get the room. Larger screen sizes aren't very expensive.

eg, my 120" screen was only $158 and upgrading it to a 150" screen would only bring it up to $350. Either screen uses the same projector ($800) vs a
90 inch 1080p tv for $6000
. As soon as you get into large format TVs, it's always going to be way cheaper to just get a projector. The only downside of a projector is I probably wouldn't want to run it for more than 4 hours at a time regularly, and probably not ever more than 6 hours at a time.

Looking around online a bit further, it appears that it isn't until you're looking a TVs that are 60" or smaller that the TVs will start to be cheaper than a good projector + screen.

u/-RicFlair · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Obviously there is a lot to this so here are just a few suggestions/preferences:

  1. Consider using this projector, it's great and half the price. The Epson isnt twice the projector. If you havent used projectors before, then do not underestimate the amount of heat they generate. They are wonderful but you will feel the heat

  2. If you can, use the same speaker for your right/left and center. Place them at the same height with the right/left distance creating an equilateral triangle with your primary listening position
  3. Save money, dont buy a screen, use the wall and white paint. Internet search this topic to find more info. Obviously if you have matching LCR speakers at the same height then youll have to account for the center speaker's height. Again this is the ideal situation. Whatever works best for your room works best for your room
  4. I know Denon is name brand but Ive read a number of mix reviews. My preference is Yamaha, lots of happy Yamaha receiver customers including me
  5. Consider buying a used speaker system to get the best speakers possible. Speakers and subs are really what make your system come alive. Also consider getting two subs instead of one. Use the savings suggested above to invest in the best possible sound system
u/SeafoodDuder · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Yeah, there are quite a few like the Optoma HD141X, the Optoma HD26, the Epson 1040 and misc refurbished higher tier projectors such as the BenQ W1070 for $527 when it retails for $700.

IMO, I think projectors are much better and more flexible than TVs. You can save quite a bit of money and get a much bigger screen by going refurbished. Projectors are less common and require more initial setup and research but I love them.

u/Paulios · 2 pointsr/DIY

It all depends on what you would like to spend. At the cheapest you could do it for around $500. This would restrict you to SVGA resolution which is 800x600 IIRC.

The breakdown for this would be:

  • ViewSonic PJD5134 SVGA Projector

  • Blackout Cloth

  • Small media player

  • A T-Amp for audio

  • And some paracord, grommet kit, and cheapie garage-sale speakers.

    If possible I would invest in a nice mid-range projector like the BenQ W107. It is one of the highest rated projectors in its price range although it is a bit pricy.

    EDIT: To answer your questions, I doubt there are any outside safe projectors. Your best bet would be some kind of watertight housing if you are keeping it outside. But if you're investing in a projector you might as well use it inside too and have a 5 meter screen. Screens all depend on the material. You want something that is evenly reflective which makes a big difference in the appearance of the image. The cheapest thing right now that works incredibly well is blackout cloth which is used in window blinds to block out the sun by reflecting it. The cost is so small compared to the difference in image to a white sheet or a board that it is generally recommended.
u/QuackNate · 2 pointsr/gaming

> You'd need some somewhat expensive projectors tho to make sure they have enough adjustment to account for the steep angle of the projectors. (I'm assuming the projectors are mounted above so it shoots the display over your head, hence a steep angle that needs adjustment.)

Nah, I have this one and it throws the image slightly above the lens, but also has lens shift. When mounted close to the ceiling upside down you get the image about a foot from the ceiling with no keystone needed. If you have to hang it lower to go under a fan or something the adjustment is super doable and the image still looks nice.

u/UnalphabetizedThings · 2 pointsr/PrimeDay2016

Well, that's pretty much as unfancy as the questions get when talking about even the most basic home theater.

The room size pretty much determines the throw. If you have a big room (eg 12'+), then you can go with a medium throw projector, but if the room is <12', you'll have to start looking into short-throw projectors which are crazy expensive. "Throw" or "throw ratio" is essentially the distance a projector needs to be away from the wall to show a certain screen width (throw ratio = distance from screen/width of screen). eg. If you want a 6' wide picture in a 12' room, you'd have to have a projector with a throw ratio of at least 2. The smaller the throw ratio, the larger the picture you can have in a smaller room. Another way of thinking about it is if you have a room that is 10' and the projector has a throw ratio of 1.5, the maximum screen width will be 6.66' (10/1.5). If you put that same projector in a 15' room, the maximum screen width would be 10' (15/1.5).

If you are planning to blackout the room, you can get away with fewer lumens, but if you plan to leave the windows uncovered or only partially shaded, then you'll need far more lumens to get a decent picture.

How you plan to mount the project determines the connections and image alignment. If you need wireless connections, that eliminates a lot of projectors. If you plan to mount the projector from the ceiling vs mid-wall, you'll need to be able to adjust the image. Some have pretty basic controls, but depending on your plans, you may need something better.

For my home theater, I have a BenQ W1070. It's 14' room with black-out window covers, and it's mounted mid-wall. However, I only spent ~$500 on it because when I bought it the newer version had just come out. The newer model W1075 is actually cheaper than the older model, but still one of the best in its class. My uncle builds $40k+ custom home theaters for a living, and in his opinion, the next projector better for my set-up was just shy of $15k.

u/techhorder · 1 pointr/projectors

If you keep an eye on this sub there has been a couple of decent sales on the BenQ w1070. Currently only $672 on Amazon. It should do what you want and at 1080p.


u/redialed · 1 pointr/hometheater

to stay in a budget, but with the requirement of 1080p i think the best retail deal is the benq w1070

and as for drop down screens, elite screens are supposed to be good but you would need to measure to figure out what size works for you

but going to /r/projectors will serve you a lot better than a one off comment from me, gl

i think your main frustration will be that most setups focus on multiple inputs with one output. here you need multiple outputs. that might mean using built in sound for the two 50s with a speaker setup for the projector, or it might mean some sort of switcher.

u/Grippler · 1 pointr/gaming

"high quality" and "affordable" doesn't usually mix well when you're talking projectors. But maybe take a look at the BenQ W1070

u/Jew__Gold · 1 pointr/PS4

In that price range, BenQ W1070 is closest competition. Besides those 2, there are a couple other BenQ models in that price range, depending on your personal setup. Everything else, you are looking at $1000+ for Epsons. There is also Viewsonic that seems to be in sub-$1000 range, but I don't know much about them. BenQ and Optoma run that price range.

u/scooterdog · 1 pointr/hometheater

In my research (am looking into projectors as well) the BenQ W1070 gets consistently high marks <$700USD. 2000 lumens, does 3D, and 1080P resolution.

Here's the Amazon link

u/Rpd444 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Yeah, I hear that. I don't blame you, especially because $200 can otherwise be spent on better speakers, or something. How is your audio setup?
I went to Amazon.com and found that they're selling the BenQ W1070 for $519.

Here are some other options, if your budget is in that $500-$700 range:

Optoma HD 142X

Optoma GT1080p

The one I picked up was the Epson Home Cinema 2045 (which I bought from Best Buy actually)

u/drunkencyborg · 1 pointr/TrueFilm

I can't speak for GingerWez93 but I also have a large bluray collection and if something is not on bluray I'll usually stream on Amazon, Netflix, Hulu or Google play.

To answer your bluray player question though, I use either a PS3 or PS4 depending on which room I'm in and the PS4 is hooked up to a projector. (This projector to be more specific: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A2T6X0K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) It looks fantastic.

And for sound I have a fairly generic speaker system (This one: https://www.amazon.com/Genius-GX-Gaming-SW-G2-1-3000-Devices/dp/B007TSRCZM) and it sounds good to me. I'm not very much of an audiophile though so if sound is extremely important to you I would invest in a better sound system.

u/CrtureBlckMacaroons · 1 pointr/GotG

I got the BenQ W1070 1080p 3D Projector

You can't go wrong with that price, but I would suggest a screen over a wall, as the screen's material will give you the best image quality. That won't be too expensive either, somewhere between $100-$150.

u/Angeltachibana · 1 pointr/Zeos

Nice, I'm trying to do the same thing for a Halloween Party.

You've been extremely helpful, so shut up and take my money, no seriously sending you a tip for the info.

Prices at Amazon right now:

BenQ 1070

BenQ MH680

The MH680 is $650 right now, not sure if that's some sort of special when the MSRP is $2000 apparently. I just wasn't sure if DLP meant some sort of huge improvement over non-DLP.

The 1070 is $730.

u/robertatbenq · 1 pointr/projectors

Personally, I'd look at the W1070 myself :)

u/DumaDuma · 1 pointr/hometheater

It simply won't look very good. I would suggest upping your budget a bit and going with something like the BenQ W1070.

u/MettaWorldWarTwo · 1 pointr/hometheater

The best "non-smart TV" will probably be a projector but the best ones, much like the Ferrari discussion below, are tailored because they know people are getting just the display.

I think the reason you're getting flak is that you're asking, effectively, "I want a car in the Camry price range that is tailored to the way I drive." TV producers, and Camry producers, are going to make something that caters to the highest number of people not something that fits the pro-sumer market. Pro-sumer TVs just don't exist. They will never fit the use case of enough people to be justified. The closest thing out there are the commercial displays, but those are for digital signage (again, suited to the use case) and far beyond your price range.

If you've got a good home theater setup with surrounds and etc, get a projector. Here's a good one for $730. Then get a 120" entry level motorized screen and for $840, you no longer have a Smart TV, and have a 120" display (or there about).

u/mrbleuskye · 1 pointr/LosAngeles

That's what I was thinking...not enough 4k content yet to warrant a purchase, but the temptation is still there.

I've been looking at a BenQ projector...around the same price as the 120Hz Sharp, but I'm afraid of the heat exhaust. I also like the clarity of a tv set. Do you have experience with projectors? Do they give off a lot of heat? I have a converted garage as a room so there's plenty of space.

This is the projector I've been considering. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A2T6X0K

u/ForeverANinja · 1 pointr/gadgets

Hi everyone, I've been looking at getting a projector for a while now, and I'm extremely confused about specs and price ranges. Hoping you can clear it up for me some.

I would like to have one for gaming on my PC, as well as netflix and such. I have a fairly high end gaming rig that easily runs most games at 1080p/60fps on my monitor, and I want to be able to get the same results through a projector(60 Hz or better refresh rate).

I've looked around and found a number of different projectors at quite different price points. I am hoping to stay under $1000 Canadian.

Here are a few that I've found:

-Optoma HD27- $889 CAD

-Optoma HD142X- $779 CAD

-BenQ W1070- $1444 CAD

-Optoma GT1080- $787 CAD

-Epson 2040- $996 CAD

I see a lot of threads of people saying trying to get a good projector for under $1000 is not a good idea- can anyone help me out with these choices and tell me which one is best, and if I really need to spend more?

If you have any other suggestions besides the ones I've listed, please let me know! Thanks!

I bought this one and I'm happy with it.

You could go cheaper. This one can do all the way up to UXGA resolution and has an hdmi port.

If the specs confuse you here's a dictionary for the terms.

Check out some other brands too. Have fun researching.

There's plenty more to choose from within your price range, but I just posted the ones I've actually researched before making a purchase. All of them are bright enough to replace a TV at around 85-100", and have little-to-no input lag, which is crucial for gaming as you may know. The bulbs will also last you at least 3 years with heavy use.

Stay away from Epson HomeCinema and ProCinema projectors, as they have too much of a delay to be useful for gaming. Not sure about the rest of their line.

EDIT: Check out AVSForum if you have more questions. They'll be able to help you further. That's what I used to help make a decision.

I use these..



MK8 is almost like an imax experience in single player, and multiplayer, everyone has their own 60".

Pfft I got a 1080p 3D Projector for 1/4 for price, I can get as many inches as I want. 100 inch is no problem if that's what I want. Just got to make the room dark.
