  • Great all around except for their ARC
    Reviewed by Winter - March 27, 2021

    I replaced my old Benq W1070 with this unit. It has a lot better picture, not to mention 4K. There are several reviews regarding picture quality for this projector and it is totally worth it. However I would probably go with the HT3550 (instead of the HT3550i). The reason is simply because it doesn’t support 5.1. I was planning to use the HDMI passthrough over ARC back to my receiver, but it only sends stereo audio. Have a look at the FAQ in the Benq website: “ Does this projector support HDMI 5.1 surround sound? 07-01-2020 No, the projector does not support HDMI 5.1 surround sound. It only supports HDMI Stereo.” Therefore, you are better off installing the QS01 (Fire TV, which comes with the unity) directly on the receiver. Otherwise sound is not going to be great. Which is a shame, considering it has a very neat inclosed HDMI port and USB cable dedicated to the QS01, very disappointed about that. Other than this flaw, the projector is great. Just don’t bother ordering th “i”, get a Roku instead and connect it to the receiver.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Good 4K DLP projector with accurate colors.
    Reviewed by Prabhat - January 8, 2021

    Pros: Colors look accurate on this projector out of the box. Picture is sharp and corners are evenly bright. Auto keystone correction works great. Good contrast and black levels. Thin grey border. Cons: QS01 dongle doesn't auto detect the HDR 10 content from Amazon Prime. You have to turn on the SDR to HDR converter on the Droid app on the Android TV. Sometimes the projector fails to detect the QS01 dongle. Often the projector takes longer to turn on.

  • Best 4k Projector in its class
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kaze - February 12, 2021

    Pre-Calibrated from the Factory is near perfect, the automatic tone mapping for HDR is one of the best in the industry and a dynamic iris puts this projector in a league of its own for this price point!
