BenQ's W1060 is a slick and stylish machine with a chassis that whets the appetite for some spectacular cinema-honed visuals. It boasts full-HD 1080p in terms of pixels, and each and every one of them is driven by a microscopic mirror. Take a closer look at the spec sheet and it's nearly all good news. BenQ claims native contrast of 5,000 to one, for instance. The 2,000 lumens lamp doesn't sound too shabby, either. The only real blot on the W1060's copy paper is the 3x speed, six-segment colour wheel. ViewSonic's Pro8200, by comparison, has a 4x speed, seven-segment wheel. Then, again, the excellent Optoma HD23 is a 3x, six-segment item, so maybe the specs aren't all important after all. What's more, the W1060's sub-700 sticker price is pretty darn impressive. First up, the subjective viewing experience doesn't show up any obvious increase in the dreaded DLP rainbow effect, which is good news given the relatively modest spec and colour wheel speed. Unfortunately though, things go south from there. Firstly, the modest throw ratio makes for the smallest image at any given distance of this group.
Projectors are being bought nowadays for a whole range of reasons, whether it is for home entertainment systems, presentations or just projecting your PC display on to your wall. The projector we’ve got to review today is the BenQ W1060, which is primarily a Home Cinema projector. It can project at a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, is HD ready and features a variety of special view modes for different environments such as gaming, cinema, bright and living room. At £750, is it worth it? Let’s take a closer look… You can purchase other accessories for the BenQ W1060, including a ceiling mount, spare lamp kit, RS232 cable and a soft carry case. If we move on to the BenQ W1060 itself, you’ll see that it’s a relatively normal looking projector in terms of the overall design, however it’s very lightweight and it’s curved body allows for the projector to be stored away very easily. The W1060 sports a sleek white and silver casing, with the BenQ logo featured on the top of the projector. The front of the projector is obviously where the actual lamp, used for the projection, is situated. On the left of this there is an air vent, to allow hot air to escape, and also the BenQ logo.
