I just received an e-mail from a Canadian e-tailer about the release of the BenQ in Canada for under $3K. I can't discuss pricing but let's say that it squeeked into this forum by a few hundred bucks based on the Canadian retail price.


Oddly enough, I haven't been able to track down pricing in the U.S. yet???


FWIW - this sounds like one heck of a projector! DLP, 10,000:1 contrast (utilizing a dual iris), 1200 lumen, moderate throw (13' for a 98" screen), 2 HDMI inputs, 12 volt trigger, etc. It also incorporates the feature that allows the user to eliminate the black bars from a 2.35:1 (or wider) film apparently without distorting the image (we'll see).


This is good news. With an initial street price of under $3K should mean sub $2K in a few months. I'm also not sure about BenQ's 'screw-Canada policy'. I would imagine the U.S. retail would be lower.

You guys want to tell me where you see this projector under $3K? PJ Central, shows it at $4500, and if you google it, some no name place shows up at $3K. Looks like this PJ belongs in the other thread.

It's a nice value projector,

one of the best I've seen for the price,

in fact it often offers an image better than projectors costing much more, IMO



The original release price was very very good in Canada, its gone up $400 since then at the big warehouse.


I looked closely at a number of projectors over the last 18 months and the w5000 was the keeper, the only other one I'd recommend over it is the Sharp 20000, but its much louder and costs much much more...

I still think this thread should be in the >$3k forum.

Agreed.



Hate to look at different threads that talking about the same projector.
