Im from UK Cheers for any thoughts.
I just thought I'd share, since I was in the same boat, except I didn't know about the BENQ W710ST before I purchased my Optoma GT720 (pretty much the same as the GT750).
So, as I mentioned, I'm a Optoma GT720 owner, which, in my opinion, has awesome quality, super bright, great colors, but suffers a bit in the darker areas, and blacks aren't superb, but this is pretty common for projectors, especially sub 2000$ ones.
Pros : Brightness, colors, image, Price
Cons : Blacks, no 1080p, Slight motion lag, Rainbows, NO ZOOM
Now, I didn't know about the BENQ 710ST when I purchased, otherwise I would have gotten it... here's why.
BENQ makes awesome movie projectors, and this is based on a popular successful model, and I'm sure it compares favorably to the Optoma GT 720/750 and matching it closely, or exceeding it in some areas, but it has ZOOM... something I would have killed for, for setting up, but also when watching 2.35:1 movies.
I have a limitation in screen size due to height (Bulkhead/Ductwork) and this would have allowed me to get the max image size for my 16:9, while also Zooming in when watching 2.35:1 aspect ratio films.
All in all, I say they are PROBABLY similar in quality, but the zoom is a HUGE plus. HUGE.
P.S. Optoma GT series are also notorious for bad DMD chips, I had to send mine in for repairs after 50 hours of use (hundreds of stuck/dead pixels), which started showing up only 10 hours of use. And although I had the projector back at my home less than 1 week after SHIPPING it (awesome service), it's still something to consider.
Hope this helps, I know it would have helped me tremendously.
