BenQ Launches 2 Projectors Targeted at Home Users – W8000 Home Theater Projector & DLP 4K UHD projector W11000

BenQ, recognized for making good qualities projectors, announces 2 new products targeted at home users – W8000 & W11000. These projectors have been tested and certified by THX engineers for image qualities that ensures delivery of good cinematic experiences to home users. So, what are the differences between these 2?

Resolutions 

This is by far, the most obvious difference between the 2. The W8000 is delivering Full 1080P which is common standard used in most of the video content whereas W11000 is capable of producing 4K UHD Display. Although some of you may argue that there aren’t many 4K content in the market, is there a need to have a 4K display?

I have never buy into that argument since there are so many projectors in the market that could upscale 1080P to 4K just so like the BenQ W11000. However, most 4K projectors you see in the market start off with 1080P resolution and subsequently render to 4K (so as to impress the user with the difference but usually, this takes up processing time). The W11000, instead of following this process, starts off at 2K. Then, using XPR fast switching technology, the individual pixels on the DLP chip render the output by 2 times to 4K.

 

Versatility

Space (in Singapore) is a luxury. Most of us stay in HDB which does not provide a luxurious space for big theater equipment. The W8000 comes with 5 interchangeable lens that gives users the flexibility in different room scenarios – whether from a small room with a Wide Zoom Lens or a long zoom Lens for hall (upto approx 11m!).

Capable in delivering 4K quality, the W11000 works well in almost any home environment.  Nonetheless, I will suggest to leave a big piece of wall as your projector screen. It is 4K afterall! Why not fully capitalize on it?!

Price

The BenQ W8000 home theater projector is priced at SGD 3,888 after GST (pricing includes Standard Lens) which is very competitive  in the market.

The BenQ W11000 home theater projector is priced at SGD 7,299 after GST which is a steal! Most projectors at this range will be around 5-figures.

BenQ W8000 is available now whereas BenQ W11000 will be available mid-December 2016 onwards.
