A very interesting projector from BenQ. Promising 94% DCI-P3 color space coverage, a 1.13-1.47 throw range, 3D compatibility and vertical lens shift. The W2700 projector seems to be the true 4K successor of BenQ’s beloved HT2050/HT3050 projectors. I for one am excited to find out more about this projector and what it’s US model name will be.

Its got better specs than w1700/ht2550, contrast is 3x better with lens shift but doesnt say size of the 4k dlp chip. I wish they offered these in black as well.

It says .47 in the overview section. For some reason it’s not in the spec sheet.

Yes, I see it now. USB firmware upgrade is nice if they let consumers upgrade. I think it will be announced at CES if not before.

It does sound very interesting. Getting back into a relatively short throw distance that make it a drop-in replace for the HT2050 or even the older W1070 will attract a lot of buyers. And if that improvement to contrast is real, it will be an upgrade to the HT2050A across the board -- I know going backwards in contrast has held a lot of people back from upgrading to 4k. I hope somewhere in there they have fixed the annoying lamp pumping my TK800 does in SmartECO that was never an issue with the older Benqs.


Of course, whether it is really a "successor" to the HT2050A depends on the MSRP.

4k HDR 3D & what appears to be a motorized lens cover in one package; hopefully it comes in a ST flavor too, if that's the case my HT will finally be 100% complete(barring a 18GHZ hdmi cable and a plex client)

I assume the "active iris" refers to what's more commonly called a dynamic iris, that the higher contrast spec is for dynamic contrast due to the dynamic iris and that native contrast will be no different from other models without the iris.

They reference both dynamic iris and dynamic contrast in the same sentence. It certainly implies that it uses both. If not it would be extremely misleading imo.

I have my doubts that the contrast will be an improvement over any other .67 DC3 projector even with a dynamic iris. I’m hoping that they have at least improved the contrast performance of the .47 XPR enough to make all its other advantages worth while.

This is basically a slighty stripped down JVC LX-UH1 which BenQ also developed.

That seems like a bit of an assumption. The JVC-UH1 had a longer throw, no 3D, far less DCI-P3 coverage, no FI, no Iris, no factory calibration. I’m not saying the LX-UH1 is better or worse, I’m just pretty sure they are very much different.

What is really weird to me is the way BenQ has began marketing this projector. No announcement, they just kind of put it on their website with no press release right in between IFA 2018 and CES 2019. Seems like really strange timing to me. I understand that they probably don’t want people to upgrade during the holiday season, just to announce it early January. It just seems odd to me.

It's not marketing but the technical mistake, I found that page accidentally just googling any upcoming 4k projectors, they already removed all pages about it.

On another australian site ( I can't put link because have only three posts) they say that it's coming 3rd november. Hope it will come soon also to europe. I'm planning to buy projector this month and was between optoma uhd 51a and 51alv but they were not easy to buy here in norway. Benq is very popular so if they release this model in november then I will take a shot.

Looks like a nice replacement for my 1070. Can't wait to read the first reviews.
