Here's the latest DLP
projector from BenQ, the SP831. Besides requiring the not one, but two skinny product-waifs to hoist the unit for photos, the SP831 features a 2000:1 contrast ratio and is capable of blasting 1280x768 resolution images at 4,000 lumens off that 300W bulb. That puts this projector a notch above their SP820
announced earlier. From the photos we can also see that the unit ships with laser-etched keys, DVI (with HDCP support), Ethernet, and a smattering of in and outs with Twin View (POP,POP,PAP) capabilities for viewing multiple sources at the same time. No word on price or availability yet, but you can expect it to be priced a bit above the $4,699 SP820 whenever it ships. In the mean time, we'll treat ya to some more snaps after the break.
