Excellent Projector

I just bought the unit. We're using it outside, projecting against a 120" screen. The picture quality is perfect. I was shocked how good the picture was. It's actually 1080p quality. The unit isn't noisy. There's a slight hum, but it's not disconcerting at all. The sound quality is OK. It's good considering the source, but doesn't really match a 120" picture. To get the full experience, you really need to employ a sound system that matches the picture quality. Overall, the unit exceeded my expectations.

Great for the price

Been using for about 3 weeks during the NBA finals, quality is on point for sporting events like this. 4.5 stars on this one I do live in a condo with floor to cieling Windows, this product would not work well if i didnt have blackout blinds. Just too much light washes out the image. Overal this projector suits my simple needs.

Great product

Bought yesterday Benq projector whit 120 inch screen and very happy.good quality pictures and amazing sound speakers ( doesn't need to buy extra soundbar).connect PC, PS4 and it's WOW. Recommended

Just awesome

Bought one of these yesterday, I had a 55 inch in a dedicated room to watch movies and decided it was time for bigger things and bought a ST 120 inch screen. I was waiting for these to go on sale and when they did I got one. The clarity of the image is stunning, my wife thought I was going to be disappointed she said you can't have a great picture that size for that price but she was the one wide eyed when we watched Avatar lol. Hook this up to a BR and you'll be stunned. Don't forget, the screen is your second most important piece so don't cut corners. Sound is not bad but to match the picture you need to hook it up to a sound system All in all, an awesome projector, quiet and what you get for the price can't be matched, I highly recommend .

Purchased the BenQ HT3050 over a 65" tv, on the recommendation of a friend due to our room size. Unbelieveable image quality at 14 feet, onto a 127" screen. Quiet with good sound.

Exactly what I wanted

The picture is bright, clear and large, even from a short distance. Perhaps the most remarkable feature is the sound. I have no need for external speakers and rarely have the volume set above level 2. We've plugged in an Apple TV and it does everything we want. The other thing I really like is that it's easily stored and set up again. The benefit is that you don't have a large screen hanging conspicuously on the wall! Finally, the fan is also relatively quiet and the unit itself is light. Perhaps the only downside is that it is fairly large.

My move-up decision

This is my second BENQ projector in a row. I just put a new bulb in the old one and thought it would be a good time to sell it; made a friend of mine very happy. The 3050 totally delivers on all my expectations. Using my old mount and expanding screen my picture grew from 60" to 77". It's much quieter than my old one. Problems with light leakage I'd heard of have not materialized. Excellent picture right out of the box; I haven't been compelled to get my set-up disc involved yet. I'm not convinced that 4K is worth the expense, especially with new support gear. I feel i've got the best bang for my buck.

Great Buy

I was looking for a project for the longest time. My issue with most of them was the throw distance that I couldn't find for my particular setup. I do not regret buying this projector. Hd movies look great and I haven't noticed any input lag with playing games on the Xbox one.
