BenQ has been busy adding to its very popular line of home theater projectors. Now, BenQ has pulled even farther away from the competition with the release of its W1080ST 1080p 3D Short Throw DLP Home Theater Projector.

In addition to its other solid specifications, which we will get to shortly, the big draw of the W1080ST is its short throw capability– with the word “throw” referring to the necessary distance between the projector and the screen/projection area required to properly render the image.

Generally speaking, your typical projector normally requires roughly 2 feet of distance between it and the screen for each foot of screen width. Consequently, to fully project onto a 65-inch screen (i.e., 5.4 feet), an ordinary projector would need to be situated approximately 11 feet away from the screen to work properly– this is quite a large span, particularly for smaller homes, apartments, office spaces or dorm rooms.

In contrast, to fill the very same 65” screen described above, the BenQ W1080ST Short Throw projector needs only a 3-foot distance.  This incredible up-close performance is a huge advantage for smaller homes, offices, classrooms, advertising booths, or anywhere else where space is limited.

In addition to its exceptional short throw distance, the BenQ W1080ST is a truly top-tier home projector that delivers outstanding image quality with features that are usually attendant with much more expensive models.

This projector boasts 2000 lumens, 1080p full HD resolution, and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio – all of which serve to create stunningly sharp and brilliant high-res images and video that do not look granular or pixelated, even when viewing the picture close to the screen.  Further, the W1080ST has received certification from the Imaging Science Foundation (“ISF”) – a prestigious accolade that is bestowed upon units that offer calibration settings that can adapt to the size and day/night light levels of the particular room. Although it sounds complicated, the purpose of this feature is simply to ensure that picture quality is maximized in varying environmental conditions.

The W1080ST also features various types of 3D support, such as Blu-Ray, HDMI, gaming and now NVIDIA 3DTV, which allows you to connect the projector to your PC to enjoy 3D games, photos and 3D Blu-ray movies.

Other notable features of this projector include advanced power saving and bulb life-extending features, like Smart Eco Mode, Eco Blank Mode, and No Source mode; dual HDMI inputs; and built-in 10-watt speakers.

Overall, we are very impressed with the BenQ W1080ST 1080p 3D Short Throw DLP Home Theater Projector – not only for its outstanding short throw capability, but also for its brilliant high resolution picture quality, extreme 3D-readiness, ISF certified self-calibration controls, and smart power/lamp-saving modes. Of course, if you have more room and don’t need the short throw – check out the standard-throw version, the BenQ W1070 1080P.
