    The best 1080p picture quality in this price range. BenQ's entry level Full HD 1080p home cinema projector, the BenQ W1090 really is a great projector for the price. It is the direct replacement to the W1070 which has been around for a number of years now. Having taken a look at the BenQ W1090 in our demo room, picture quality at this price point is heads and shoulders above the competition and a marked improvement on the W1070. Well balanced colours and good black levels make for a solid all round performance from animated movies such as Zootropolis through to action movies such as the Dark Knight Rises.

    Recently reviewed by What HIFI magazine, they rated the BenQ W1090 4/5 stars with the following comments being made.."rich colour palette", "Deep Blacks", "Crisp and detailed picture", "Easy to set up and use" and their overall verdict was " This projector delivers an eye-popping, vibrant picture that's sure to grab your attention."

    Over at AVForums, similar praise was given to the BenQ W1090 receiving 8/10 overall score and an AVForums "Recommended award" with comments such as "Overall BenQ has produced yet another all-star in its budget DLP line-up of projectors and it comes recommended." "..we are really struggling to think of any all-round rival at the price point." "..Images are bright and colourful, yet accurate and lifelike, and motion is excellent."

    The chassis is small and compact and finished in matte white so will blend with minimal effort on to a standard living room ceiling.

      benQ w1090

      Had the Epson EH-TW5300 that is by the way a great little projector but needed to update to a new projector as I got a larger screen and the Epson model would not give me the 136" image I needed from 14 feet away, I sent an email to Projectorpoint to see if they could help me in regards to my needs and they did with this projector the BenQ W1090. It fits my screen spot on, its the first DLP projector I have ever had and have to say its as good as the Epson model but with a bigger image size then the LCD model, at the price its a good buy, the picture quality is sharp with a bright image to, I would like to thank Projectorpoint for being so very helpful and for the super fast next day delivery service on my orders.
