Home Cinema / Theatre - Gaming Projectors what's best?
We're often asked "what is the best projector" the answer depends on your situation.
If you've got a well lit or bright room, say a business or board room or lounge room (that's not light controlled) you'll need a brighter projector (more ANSI lumens) than one designed for the lounge or home theatre. Sound systems are the same, there is not one that's right for every situation. If you're after a very good system to go with a top line projector in a home theatre please contact us for a bundle price including delivery.
The Projection Screen can make a big difference too.
The size and aspect ratio of the screen relates back to the projectors specifications, location and the lighting.
If you want performance & value you can't go past the higher end "best' Epson EH TW8200 however that's only one projector in the impressive Epson projector line-up.
The next step up from Epson's nice priced EH TW5300 is the Epson EH-TW6600W the 6600W has to be the best value high performance projector in AU.
3 Whole Years..
BenQ are offering 3 year warranty upgrade for their new W2000 and W1110 projectors, the upgrade from 24 to 36 months has an RRP of $199.
BenQ premium dealers may offer this warranty uplift free during August.
This 3 Year Warranty takes BenQ to a new level of service, it's only possible because of the much improved projector build quality.
Late in 2016 BenQ will be launching a new multi purpose projector aimed at the home lounge room sports and gaming market. The new BenQ W1090 projector will boast 1080P + Sound with a handy short throw of 2.5m for 100 inch screen.
Did you know?
Epson make the 3-LCD light engines that many other brands use, we figure they'd know how to get the best from it.
We mention this because you may not know that for example Panasonic (now RIP for home cinema) often use Epson LCDs in their projectors.
BenQ DLP projectors are fighting back with their new range of projectors for Q2 2016 (W1110 & W2000) ..from the Sound Image Award they just one it's going to be exciting times. Epson are not happy!
2016 SOUND+IMAGE AWARDS
The 2016 Sound+Image Awards were announced at our Presentation Dinner on November 25th at the Grace hotel in Sydney.
Epson and BenQ are over the top with their counter claims and example images showing (simulated) how the other brand's projection method is not as good as theirs. A lot depends on the viewers perception, the viewing application and the actual Projector model.
2 x DGD5-3D Glasses Free (RRP $256) on both models.
HCC having tested several later model BenQ projectors believe that for most people the dreaded DLP "Rainbows" are no longer a problem, this is thanks to faster colour wheel speed and the image processing. HCC offers an option to swap DLP for LCD if you're one of the few that for whatever reason aren't completely happy. See each products page for offer details, where available.
The largest selling home cinema projectors brands all use 3-LCD technology
Epson were also the #1 seller in real Home Cinema Projectors in 2015.
As Epson say, there’s a reason why Epson have been named the world’s leading projector manufacturer 14 years in a row.
3-LCD colours are up to three times brighter than 1-chip DLP projectors. The Epson EH-TW6600W and EH-TW8200 using 3-LCD are selling well and hard to pass for their respective prices. That said, not all people want to go all out on Epson's EH TW8200 while stocks last. 4K 8300 here.
