I’m currently have only this BenQ TW523P Projector, that I just bought a few hours but it’s already demonstrated itself to be a really great bit of kit! I previously had a ‘data’ style projector, and so when I plug this in I was immediately taken by how much clearer the image was and how vivid the colors appeared. Setting up the projector was a doddle, literally consisting of plugging it in and turning it on, it did the rest.

My only slight criticism is that with the zoom fully open to make the picture as large as possible, I could not get the projector to focus correctly. In the end I had to make the image smaller to make it sharp. However, my room is very large so both the throw distance and overall image size is likely outside what is recommended. There is a little fan noise, however once you get some sound on the hi-fi you can’t really hear it, and it certainly isn’t loud enough to detract from my viewing experience.
I have 3D glasses on order, but as they haven’t arrived yet I can’t review what this experience is like. 3d was my primary motivation for buying the projector in the first place so central to choosing this projector. I will update this when the glasses arrive but should probably say that although I’ve not been able to watch in 3D yet, I have run 3D films on it and checked that they will work. Like the initial set up, getting the projector to recognise 3D films is straight forward and intuitive. I’m pretty hopefully that I’m going to be really impressed when the glasses arrive and I get to watch some movies in 3D.
Overall a really brilliant projector. I know I could have gone for one with a better resolution, but at the price I bought it, the TW523p was a bargain given what you’re getting. This is certainly going to be more than good enough until 4/8k projectors come down to reasonable consumer prices.
