BenQ HT 3050 DLP Projector – Review

The BenQ HT 3050 Home Theater Projector delivers some serious bang for the buck. For right around $1000 it delivers a colorful, bright picture that looks stunning right out of the box. Sure you could have a calibrator come out and adjust the setting a bit, but the factory cinema settings are excelent.

If you’re comparing specs, the BenQ HT 3050 delivers 2000 ANSI lumens, a 15,000:1 contrast ratio, and gives you Rec. 709 cinematic color reproduction.

This is a 1080p DLP projector, so you won’t be future proofing your home theater. However given the price of 4K projectors and availiability of uncompressed 4K content, the HT3050 is certainly a good choice right now.

“PC input”?

lobofer says:

I have version 1.00 firmware update exists?

Because it takes so long to detect changes of hdmi sources, example when putting a movie from kodi when changing to 24 hz takes a long time to appear the image

srgt bilko says:

The main thing which you pay for in higher end pros is flexibility I got a old panasonic ax200 and compared to a benq w1400 and a Sony w55 I think one up from the 40 plus a optoma hd50 the optoma and benq had a better res and was a noticibke upgrade but nothing like wow or anything and the Sony had an even better resolution upgrade but didn’t find the picture to be that better than the benq or the optoma so havnt upgraded yet still waiting for that wow projector that don’t cost more than a 1000 pound to come maybe when 4k is native ever where ..

Nice. About time diff tech sites get off the whole “4k tv” bandwagon. Seriously.. Even a $500 digital projector is a jaw dropping experience. Lots of people have YT videos showing off their backyard cinemas or bedsheet screens in their living room on used $100 projectors. Fk that 4k tv stuff. Projectors are awesom experience.

Kaj-Robert Hansen says:

I’m considering to buy the BenQ HT 3050 or the Optoma HD27, the BenQ is better but only 2000 lumens, and the Optoma have 3200 lumens, I’m going to have it in my living room on a 135″ screen, but with not 100% light control, will 2000 lumens be enough you think? This will not replace my tv, but will be used for games, series and movies, mostly at night, but sometimes a Saturday/sunday in the middle of the day with some daylight coming in even when I use the curtins.

BENQ PICTURE SETTINGS
Bright COLOR MODE (WALL COLOR – BLUE) – Warm – ECO – 2.2 GAMMA – COLORIFIC -ON
SOUND = Cinema
let me know if like the settings. I think it looks really good.

Wookie Groomer says:

It’s shameful there are no genuine 4k HDR projectors aimed at Home Theater Enthusiasts yet. I can see ambient and projected light being an obstacle for HDR though. Perhaps CES 2017.
