Thanks To BenQ for inviting the product launch, I would say for the first time I really got deep into the projectors and knowing projectors. Key Features which is really liked about this projector was 1. Side projection 2. In-Built Speakers 3. 3D Full HD (3D kit is an Addon) 4. Wireless Kit (Addon) 5. Smart Eco Mode
1. Side Projection
Whenever there is a projector, a projector projects the light only to the front screen its not possible to project from the side angle, for side angle you again need to rotate your screen again whole your leaving room. Well this is not the case in the benQ projector both W 1070+ and W1080+ supports side projection even if you change the angle of projection you get access to side projector settings which will makes you lo0ok the projector is projecting at the front. This is really important feature I think This really impressed me at lot, Side projection had a very good accuracy.
2. In-Buit speakers
Projectors well always know to just to project a video, image or presentation whatever you like when it came to sound you always carried extra speakers with the projector to get amazing experience. With these BenQ W1070+ and W 1080ST+ both has inbuilt Speakers which are surround sound speakers which really makes amazing sound quality
It supports 3D and also converts 2D content to 3D , 3D kit is an addon you need spend extra bucks to get extra spare 3D googles. We didn’t had any impression on 3D content but this 3D technology is evolving day-by-day a lot.
4. Wireless Kit
Projector always create a mess of wires, even when you have source in other room and projector in other room we need long wires as well as it creates a huge mess. Its an addon by BenQ to such projectors a wireless kit, It consists of Transmitter to be connected to source via USB and other end Receiver to be connected to projected via USB. This has a good amaount of range You could keep the source in one room and projector in other room still it doesn’t creates a issue.
5. Smart ECO Mode
Whenever we hear about the eco mode in any technology it means it somewhat decreases the performance and quality to decrease energy consumption, This is again not in the case of BenQ projectors. What these projectors does is whenever in a scene there is a dark spots or dark areas so projector doesn’t sends light there and saves energy, with this no quality of picture is decreased and energy is saved. At the same time this increases the Projector Lamp life by twice times.
Cinema Color Reality for Exceptional Image Quality
For the most captivating cinematic experience, BenQ has infused the W+ series with “Cinema Color Reality” picture performance. The most authentic, lifelike colors are rendered by a simulated REC. 709 gamut and the enhancement of a six-times speed, six-segment RGBRGB color wheel and BrilliantColor™ technology. No details will escape your eyes in the deepest, truest black with high native contrast ratio of 100000:11 & 2200 ANSI lumen brightness, and DLP DarkChip3TM. The projector is built to support 3D Full HD projection to fully immerse you in the joy of home entertainment fun. Plus, they are ISFccc®-certificated for professional calibration service from the Imaging Science Foundation. So you can have the color performance of the projector custom-calibrated to fit your living space.
100” Big Picture at 1.5 Meters with Short-throw Projection
The W1080ST+ – the short throw variant of the series gives you extra projection and installation flexibility with short-throw projection capabilities. Requiring only 1.5 meters to create a stunning 100” big picture, this user-friendly projector makes big-screen home entertainment possible in just about any living room!
