At £850, BenQ's W1300 is a mid-range projector model from the company's new home entertainment projector range.
Featuring a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and 2,200 ANSI lumens of brightness, the W1300 is ideal for those looking for a large screen game and film experience at a mid-range price.
The W1300 is built with a six-segment single-chip DLP imaging system and 3D playback. As well as this, the projector provides a large number of connectivity options, including two v1.4 HDMIs, a component video input and a composite video port.
Endorsed by the independent Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), the W1300 includes enough picture calibration tools to support professional installation, including colour temperature fine tuning, gamma presets, and hue, gain and saturation balancing for the colour components.
The W1300 also features the DLP's Brilliant Colour system and BenQ's Smart Eco lamp mode, which adjusts the projector's light output in response to the level of brightness in the image in order to boost contrast.
The projector's 3D performance is enhanced by the full HD capabilities of the projector, which provides a sharp and detailed image. Although the darker pictures feature green overlay, as do many DLP projectors, the 3D glasses negate much of the colour.
Overall, the BenQ W1300 provides impressive and high quality images, particularly compared to many similar mid-range projectors.
