Six-Segment Color Wheel
The six-segment color wheel in this projector has been re-engineered with 6x speed to maximize color and depth.
CineMaster Audio
Featuring CinemaMaster audio, powered by MaxxAudio technology, the HT2050 delivers 10W of cinema quality sound. An acoustically balanced driver encased in a resonant chamber inside the projector is designed to deliver vibrant, rich, and full-range sound using Wave Audio algorithms.
Independent 3D Color Control for All 6 Primary Colors
BenQ's color management tool allows users to independently fine-tune the gain, saturation, and hue of six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y). This enables users to customize colors for life-like color reproduction.
ISFccc Certification
The HT2050 features ISFccc preset modes, enabled by professional calibrators from the Imaging Science Foundation to provide optimized Day/Night viewing.
High Fill Factor
Featuring a high fill factor, the HT2050 shines more light into each pixel, improving definition for small text and fine details, and eliminating "screen door effect".
BenQ SmartEco
SmartEco automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on content to project rich blacks and increase contrast for tiny text and subtle details.
All-Glass Optics
BenQ's all-glass optics and low-dispersion lens coatings are designed to minimize chromatic aberration, delivering sharp, crisp video to the screen.
Vertical Lens Shift Flexibility
Lens shift provides the flexibility to optically move the image on the screen to overcome minor installation miscalculations.
Colorific Technology
BenQ uses Colorific technology to optimize images for specific color balance effects for diverse applications such as presentations, movies, spreadsheets, and photographs. This BenQ Colorific projector generates more than one billion colors by combining up to seven different colors to create vibrant, true-to-life images.
Wall Color Correction
The Wall Color Correction feature can be used to normalize the image when projecting onto color surfaces, providing the flexibility to enjoy content in any room in the house.

    BenQ HT2050 reviews

    HT2050 Full HD 3D DLP Home Theater Projector is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing in dark scenes, otherwise good projetor. Maybe my expectations were unrealistic, but the dark areas had no detail. Everything else looked great except the dark scenes. Lowering the gamma seemed to help, but not entirely. I have not compared this projector to anything else, except a theater movie experience. Also the HDMI connectors seem recessed in that you may think your cable is fully inserted, but have to continue about an eighth inch more to be fully connected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Projector Have had this for about two weeks now and ease of set up, and great picture have made this an awesome buy. Was rated as top pick in all my research for projectors under 1k, and I can see why. Also great experience dealing with B&H for shipping and delivery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performer It's no secret that this is one of the best projectors in its price range. This is my first projector so I have nothing to compare it to but I am very satisfied. Black levels are good though nothing to write home about. Colors and sharpness are very good. Very quiet. The vertical lens shift is pretty limited and there is no horizontal lens shift so measure carefully if you're mounting to the ceiling.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect projector for the money! Just received this projector and after doing a lot of research I couldn't be more happy! Friends can't believe the picture quality for the price. Fan noise is very minimal. Movie nights and watching sports have definitely changed in our house!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I used it just about everyday with about a 10 foot throw on a white wall. Great color, and the built in speaker isn't that bad. Great buy if you want to watch big screen movies but don't want to buy a tv or full projector setup.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was great... I have barely had it a year and the lamp just exploded... Hopefully it's just a lamp replacement as it is now a month out of warranty I believe... The Optima i had before this lasted for many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! Great picture, easy to set up. Seems like an excellent value for the price. Expect to have a lot of fun with this!
