BenQ W1110 ProjectorEditors' Choice HCC Editors' Choice -  Entry Level Home Cinema & Gaming
Best Seller so far in 2017.

BenQ's new W1110 and W2000 projectors get our Editors' choice award. 
  • BenQ are going through a sea change with their latest projector models.
  • The W1110 in particular offers value & performance for Home Cinemas.
  • Keep up the good work BenQ you're going to give "Epson" an even bigger scare.
  • New modern look and 50% more contrast at a low price so what's not to like?
  • Benq w1110 & W2000  now have a 50% higher contrast ratio.

The new BenQ W1110 projector features 1080p full HD (3D)
with an optimised optical system at unmatched value. 

Shifty BenQ

Lens shift +/- 10% vertical with a short-throw means you get a 100 inch image from 2.5 to 3.3m. Zoom range of 1.3:1 makes installation of the W1110 very flexible, you can zoom into your screens edges easily.

No wires opinion

Optional full HD wireless connectivity via the kit allows you to stream uncompressed 1080p content including 3D.

BenQ W1110 wireless option
The wireless range is up to 100 ft line of sight. BenQ warn (as most do) that transmission distance depends on the actual environment and steel, wood, concrete, or brick within line of site may decrease the transmission distance.
We think HDMI is always best where possible. Wireless is handy but don't think there will never be interruptions say when you start microwaving the popcorn. 
Yes we meant opinion but it is an option.

This option is not available for 3D so stick with the better HDMI..


W1110’s thermal system reduces acoustic noise to 27dBA in Eco mode, the lowest fan noise in its class, to provide a more pleasant viewing experience.  This is really a very low noise level which is handy for smaller rooms.

I can see clearly now the rain has gone..

No Rainbow Guarantee by HCC

To as good as eliminate the dreaded rainbow effect older DLP projectors were infamous for, (because they had slow colour wheels) BenQ use a "Turbocharged" colour wheel. This is code for the six-segment colour wheel (RGBRGB) utilises a whopping 6X speed. Put another way 6 x faster than the early models that were known for "artifacts" the faster the better within reason.

Colour me this

Users can also fine-tune the gain, saturation and hue of six primary colours (R/G/B/C/M/Y) individually if you're not happy with the out of the box ISFccc®Certification. There is also a shutter to adjust the lamp brightness on the fly so the DLP chip is not trying to hold back unnecessary lumens on dark scenes.

The inbuilt 10-watt speaker housed in resonant sound chamber plus BenQ Audio Enhancer powered by MaxxAudio dramatically boosts bass and treble for serious stereo sound when you're not connected to your home audio system. Normally you'd uses your Home Cinema Sound System however the inbuilt sound is handy when moving from room to room.

If you're using a wall rather than a projection screen you can fine tune the Wall Colour Correction this has limits if the colour is too dark but handy for most colours you'll normally find about the house.

New for old

As with all DLP projectors BenQ claim this model has a Long Lasting Picture Quality. 
The micro-mirrors of the DLP chip and the nearly-sealed DLP engine design mean that BenQ DLP Projectors stand the test of time without any loss in picture quality note that lamp output will fall off over time but once you change the lamp it's all good again.
