    BenQ HT2050A reviews

    HT2050A Full HD DLP Home Theater Projector is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best projector under $1000 I returned an Optoma HD143x in favor of the BenQ ht2050a after a side-by-side comparison.� The Benq has excellent clarity and color reproduciton, while also having excellent brightness and contrast. While there are brighter projectors at this price point, I find that this projector has superior blacks in any semi-dark room. I wouldn't use it in a space with alot of ambient light, but any room with opaque blinds, or a theater room will benefit from this projector. This projector also features a lot of inputs when compared to the likes of the Optoma HD142x and HD143x, which is great for straight connections of PCs, streaming boxes/sticks, and traditional video sources like Blu Ray players and Cable boxes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BenQ Makes great product The picture is great. Replaced my old Benq W1070 with this new HT2050A and am very happy with the picture. I have the lamp set at SmartEco mode and the picture is far ahead of my old projector. I am glad I checked the difference between the HT2050 and the HT2050A. The W1070 was a long throw, but even though this HT2050A is considered a short throw, I didn't have to make any changes in my ceiling mount and it has a quick set-up feature. Jon G,; Burnet, TX

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier! I finished my basement and was ready for my home theatre. I ordered a ViewSonic PRO 7827 HD and to my disappointment, the fan noise was noticeable enough to my ears to the point of taking away the joy. The projector made its way back to the vendor and I started the search process again! I did your homework for you: at this price, don't look any further, you cannot get a better projector. A powerful projector with a solid beautiful vivid picture, and two customizable viewing modes (user1 and user2). Here is why I love this feature: For example, I was watching Star Wars Return of the Jedi using the Cinema mode. With all the lights off, I wanted a darker deep space. I switched to user1 mode, decreased the brightness a little, increase the contracts a little, and so on. The result? An LG OLED true black quality! now if there is some decent light in the room, I use the "vivid" mode and the pic looks superb. So, different picture modes support different lighting conditions. Now to the best part; the fan noise. I have to really pay good (and intentional) attention to notice it. I forgot to mention, that setting up this projector was a breeze and took a little less than 3 minutes to go through the "next, next.." options. The components of my home theatre: - Homegear 110" HD Motorized 16:9 Projector Screen W/ Remote Control - QualGear QG-PM-002-BLK-S Projector Ceiling Mount - XLHTB High-Performance 5 Speaker Surround Sound Home Theatre - DLP Link 3D Glasses, GooDee Ultra-Clear HD 144 Hz 3D Active Rechargeable Shutter Glasses for 3D DLP Link Projectors The remote has a great button called "Invert" for 3D function. If you feel your 3D glasses is showing awkward 3D depth, press the "Invert" button. It will take care of the sync issue with your glasses. Alternatively, the 3D glasses have a button that can invert the sync. A great 3D experience suggestion: Transformers - Age of Extinction Overall, this is a great projector for the money. My family is so impressed with the performance, quietness, quality of the picture. Just add popcorn :-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear pic This is an awesome projector. We have it in a room with no a theater looks like a massive TV not. We also bought a 144 inch screen from Amazon and made a frame. We have a sound system hooked up ...and I swear it feels like we are at the movies...def a great buy
