The BenQ W2700 is a desktop or ceiling mounted projector. In ceiling mount mode, it will project a 100/147-inch diagonal image from 2.5/3 metres and has lens shift and zoom to adjust for keystone effect to fill the screen with a true 16:9 image.
It has true 4K resolution 3840 x 2160, 2000 ANSI Lumens brightness, 30000:1 contrast, HDR10/HLG support, 95% of DCI-P3 and 100% Rec.709 colour gamut. In other words, it presents colours as the filmmaker sees them.
Video content comes in via 2 x HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2 (copy
protection). It also supports USB playback.
Xbox or Sony Playstation (4K versions will also give you a Blu-ray player)
Then you need a sound system
The unit comes with 2 x 5W Stereo Maxx speakers, but a true man cave will have a Dolby Atmos 7.1.4 system. The best soundbar is the Samsung Dolby Atmos Series 9 HW-N950 currently on special for under $1200.
Finally, a 120-inch or larger
4K projection screen.
Fixed screens start around $500 and motorised screens from
$1000. You can even buy special paint to do the job.
OK – if that is too hard then BenQ has a network of dealer/installers here.
GadgetGuy’s take –
perfect if you have the right environment and a reasonable cheque book
In researching and writing this,
I fund that these projectors are great in a man cave, sorry dedicated media
room where you can completely darken the light and perhaps have a popcorn machine in the corner. If you do that
you will enjoy as close to cinema quality at home.
They are not for Joe and Jane Average who will put it in a typical bright sunny lounge room. They can buy a 65-inch TV for under $1000 – end of story.
Let me finish by saying the images I saw from a 4K Blu-ray
player were spectacular.
