BenQ W1110 1080P entry level DLP projector

On the subject of 3D, I hope BenQ includes a Vesa RF port on this model. (I don't see one in the pictures of the unit, though...)
Simple feature that may make a significant difference to intensive 3D viewers... Would be a silly omission.

I completely agree with you. 3D is the natural way to see the world, and if the content is good it can enhance the movie a lot. If we didn't need 3D we would be perfectly happy to use one eye at a time instead of the two simultaneously.

I'm almost certain that it wont include the Vesa RF port. Kraine reviewed the w2000 which have a similar design as the w1110 and is a better and more expensive model than the w1110 and it don't have the Vesa RF port.
If you want, take a look at the test here: http://www.projection-homecinema.fr/...st-benq-w2000/

"The connector panel is somewhat different from that of the W3000. If both HDMI inputs, compatible with MHL, are present, we note the disappearance of Vesa-taking 3D that allowed to connect 3D-RF glasses at W3000." (this is from his test)

It's important for projectors to have it built-in, because as much as I love SVP, it's buggy and crashy as hell, and anyway since HDMI 1.4a (which is what most projectors accept), cannot handle 1080p/60/3D (frame packed Bluray 3D signals increased from 24hz to 60hz at full resolution), it means you have to rip your own 3D Blurays to SBS or O/U formats, do the interpolation using SVP. So you trade off 1/2 resolution for 2+ times the frames, which is kind of a step forward and a step back at the same time (resolution matters on large projected images).

Having the FI in the projector is a huge benefit in terms of convenience, and ability to play back both 2D and 3D Bluray sources (like from an Xbox One or PS4 or a lower end PC), since SVP takes a lot of GPU horsepower and that means I can't use my cheaper PC to play back shows. In short, it sucks. There's also the problem of anarmorphic stretch mode not working on frame packed 3D formats, which AFAIK none of the BenQ projectors can do. At least not the low end ones. Which means I can't use my anamorphic lens with 3D movies, and again, I have to rip them first. And I hate doing that because it's a huge pain in the rear. I pay for my movies and all this encryption nonsense makes my life harder. It's actually simpler for me to buy the Bluray, then download the 3D SBS rip from an illegal source, than it is for me to do all that work myself. And half the time the ripping software doesn't even work.

I'm in lockstep with you on this one RLBURNSIDE. I too enjoy 3D on my Benq 1070 and I also use SVP. It's at the point now that I can't watch movies anymore without it and every time I put a 3D movie on I am always wishing I had FI on the Benq. SVP is an amazing piece of software and those who have not seen it in action are truly missing out on what good frame interpolation can do. I hope the Vivitek 1188 comes to NA soon as I think it may be my next upgrade.

What we already know :

1080P
DLP 144HZ
2000 Lumens
2 HMDI and one MHL
Color Wheel RGBRGB
Availibility october 2015
Price TBE around 850€

I see the brightness is now listed as 2200 lumens rather than 2000:

http://benq.eu/product/projector/w1110/specifications


So it looks like this is the EU equivalent of the HT2050 in the US...

Quieter fans and better optics compared to its predecessor.

The US version also seems bundled with free 3D glasses:

Hope that they decide to add those bundled glasses to the EU model!

Thanks, kraine! I have no interest in that projector but I'm interested in your review. Benq has finally come out with some products I find interesting.

I have found your reviews to be more informative than Projectercentral and Projectorreviews. (inspite of the French to English translation!)

This is great news. Many are interested in the difference in image quality between the W1110 and W2000 (HT2050 and HT3050 in the U.S.) to see if Rec. 709 is worth the extra money or if the W1110 is already close enough to Rec. 709. Your comparison of these two projectors will help influence many purchasing decisions.

Projector Central makes no comparison of the new models with the ones they replace (BenQ HT1075/W1070). A lot of people really want to know how much improvement there is with the new glass optics vs. the old plastic optics. I really hope that kraine can address this important issue.

Excellent review, kraine! Thank you for sharing. I understand your conclusion is that the W1110 (HT2050) cannot be calibrated to exactly the same high color accuracy of the W2000 (HT3050) but may be close enough for those who are not perfectionists. The big question I still have is how much of an improvement is the W1110 over the W1070? Do you think there is any visible improvement from replacing the plastic optical system with glass?

A few questions:
  1. What's most different between this model (W1110/HT2050) and the original W1070; other than the much lower operating noise and new optics?
  2. Is there still noticeable light leakage from the fan vents with this new design? (Although this doesn't matter to most)
  3. What's the Contrast measurement on this new model in SmartEco lamp mode (since this mode increases dynamic contrast by dynamically dimming the lamp)?
  4. Why has BenQ started doing what other manufacturers do and named their products differently according to region! Could you rename this thread to include the US name (HT2050) as well to reduce confusion?

Thanks guys,

kreeturez I don't know how to change the title of the thread, I'm able to make changes inside the topic but not the title.

For your second question, if you already own a W1070 or W1070+ I don't see any interest to change for the W1110. You asked about the differences between the W1070 and the W1110, there is two majors, the outside look (wich I prefer) and the audio built in system. Contrast and brightness on smart eco mode are the same as the high lamp mode.

Dave in green, the BenQ W1110 as a new all made of glass Optic but as I wrote in the review you can still find some chromatic aberrations but nothing noticeable during a movie (the sharpness look excellent).
kreeturez and Jiminheimer like this.

Thanks kraine: this is what I was looking for, looks like I'm going to continue to hang on to my W1070.... after three years it is still almost unbeaten for it's price. Any chance on a HT4050 review?

I guess the best way to ask my question is this: If you project the same images side by side with a W1110/HT2050 and a W1070, will you notice any difference in image quality or will the differences be too small to see? If there's no visible improvement in image quality, then the results of the change from plastic to glass optics would be a big disappointment.

Looks like the answer is mostly 'no' unless you're looking at a test pattern.

I remember when Optoma introduced an all-glass optical block in their HD50. Was a pretty big selling a point. But it didn't change much. Still had some CA; uniformity wasn't perfect. Same with the latest Vivitek models: brightness variances, bit of CA/fringing.

Good glass is expensive: it appears at this price-point, the benefits of moving over to glass are more about marketing and perhaps durability (glass can't burn/melt) than outright performance...

The new chassis and quieter operation are really the only main selling points: a modest evolution but certainly no revolution. Still, since it'll adopt the W1070's price, new buyers will get these benefits for free; along with maintaining the low input lag (which was a bit of a downer on the HT1075). DLP still comfortably leads this segment, but a bit more progress would be welcome.

A small step up is going to be the HT3050 (for its even-better color reproduction) - and from there it's over to LCoS for the major picture quality improvements...

I think the move to glass is fantastic at these price points for a number of reasons.
The glass optics of the Vivitek 1186 surpass what the w1070 can do, I have excellent samples of both units here, hopefully BenQ can match the optics of the Vivitek.
Those of you that are newer to this hobby have no idea how good we have it, it's crazy how so much can be had for such a small investment.

Cheers to that! Glass optics isn't a guarantee of much (even your first Vivitek had focus/brightness issues if memory serves); but certainly it's an improvement over plastic!

But indeed: as Kraine says in his review, this price point is no longer the realm of toy projectors: we get major bang for our buck these days! Heck, my projector gives my edge-lit LCD TV a run for its money in just about every way: and that's before taking into account size!

And native contrast ratios of these units approaching the 2000:1 mark nearly surpass an average movie theater!

I'm having trouble rationalizing the two posts above. If as kreeturez says the glass doesn't make any visible difference with the new BenQ models over the ones they're replacing, then what DaGamePimp says about the glass optics of the Vivitek 1186 surpassing what the W1070 with its plastic optics can do doesn't make sense unless Vivitek has surpassed BenQ in overall image quality. Something tells me this discussion is going to be going on for some time.

In short:
A good sample of a unit with glass optics surpasses a good sample of a unit with plastic optics

The difference between the two may not be that obvious on video content, though. But you'll certainly notice it on text or if using the projector as a monitor (sharper desktop icons, for instance.)

Planning to buy my first projector ever, so I was just wondering how bad is the rainbow effect on W1110/W2000 compared to W1070+? Color wheel speeds should be the same (6x on 50Hz) on all 3 models, right? Would rather get DLP instead of 3LCD Epson.

Yes, color wheel speeds are listed in the specs as the same on all 3 models, so you should be in business.

BenQ HT2050A Projector; Kodi (on Ubuntu, OpenELEC & S802) via Sony STR-DH540 AVR with Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS SE 5.1 Audio + Jamo 210 Sub. Emby for Mobile Streaming.

According to your review of the w1070, it measured at 2523:1 on/off contrast versus the 2262:1 of the w1110.
The w2000 was even worse at 1870:1, and the w3000 measured at 1400:1. That's quite a drop off for the newer models.

Kind of strange that the more expensive w3000 and w2000 would measure lower than the base model.
