BenQ W1700 4K UHD Home theatre Projector with Rec. 709

The BenQ W1700 4K home cinema projector brings you an immense amount of detail with 8.3 million pixels. The W1700 combines the incredible detail with HDR compatability or high dynamic range which improves the colour and shading of the image making brighter whites and deeper black come through at the same time resulting in a richer colour scale and better clarity. The W1700 is also cheap to run with up to 15,000 hour long lamp life making it a great addition to your home theatre.

BenQ W1700 Reviews (AKA HT2550):

Ease Of Use

"The BenQ W1700 is an exciting projector simply because it is 4K resolution at $2099, and especially because it also offers playback of 1080p 3D at its budget price. This combination of factors will put it high on the short list of many users who have an investment in 3D discs.

On board Audio. The W1700 has a single 5W speaker mounted on the side. However, the audio is louder and offers deeper bass than some claimed 20W speakers we've heard. If this is not the best audio we've ever gotten from a projector it is certainly close. This is particularly handy for backyard movies or other portable applications where you'd want sound on board.
