  • Amazing projector
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Michael - August 10, 2019

    This is the best projector I have ever owned. This is my 4th projector. I was expecting a lot from this projector and it has lived up to those expectations and then some. I have a dedicated theater room and it's perfect for this. Even with all 7 lights turned all the way up the picture is still really good. But when you dim the light this projector really comes to life. I have also tested the 3d mode and am very happy with it. It worked right way with some of my existing glasses. I have already out a couple hundred hours on this projector and have no complaints. I would highly recommend this projector to anyone looking at it.

  • Simply a great bargain
    Verified BuyerReviewed by wthomas69 - December 30, 2019

    Recently upgraded to this projector from another Benq, HT2050. Installation was a breeze as it was just moving the mount from the old PJ to this 3550, screen and throw distance stayed the same. After a little tweaking of the settings, with help from members on FB home theater groups, the picture is fantastic. The colors really pop, and it is plenty bright enough even with the lamp in ECO mode, in my basement theater. Fan noise is a little louder than the 2050, but don't even notice it after a movie starts. For anyone wanting to get a real theater like experience with 4K, don't hesitate to grab this projector.

  • Superb Picture Quality
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Matic - November 16, 2019

    I've gone through many projectors throughout the years including Benq 1070, 2050 and most recently an Epson 5040UB. This is by far the best overall performing yet. On top of have twice as many pixels as the Epson 5040 and 5050UB (1080×4 vs Epson's 1080×2), the blacks are also not much different in real world use. It's important to note there is no industry standard or base for how manufacturers state contrast level ratios. This means a claimed contrast level of 1,000,000:1 for one manufacturer can actually have a measured contrast ratio that is less than what another manufacturers states as 10,000:1. Truth
