EDITORS CHOICE It's not all about the numbers printed on the box..

From 4-5m back it's very hard to see the difference between 4K and 1080HD.

Take IMAX for example they are all THX (for the colours) but only use 2-4K dots for a screen size of 22 x 16m. The smaller the screen the less dots needed. Your projection screen may be 1/10th of IMAX. From any distance you can see how accurate the colours are, so you may need to decide between more dots and more accurate colours if your budget is $2,000-$3,000 range.

".While the W8000 doesn’t offer the last word in black level performance, for those who prefer a brighter picture they may just have found the perfect match. It also means that it may be better than some of its competitors in a room that isn’t able to be completely blacked out. With its very film-like presentation, the W8000 has an image that many are going to immediately warm to.." -- Review

BenQ W8000 vs. Epson TW9300 review

Entry Level True 4K BenQ TK800 Sports Projector.

  • The TK800 is basically a W1700 tuned for brighter colours in well lit rooms. 
  • The W1700 has about 6% more colour space coverage so it's close to the full Rec. 709 as per W3000.

HCC Tips for buying on the net and getting a delivery

If you're spending thousands on the web it may be worthwhile considering a company like
our ausmedia.com.au that's been going since 1984 and accepts BPAY payments.

Most "so-so" operations don't accept BPAY because it's too hard for them to get approval.

Note Beware of GRAY MARKET as some tell fibs about the real warranty, always read the fine print.
