How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

BenQ's W1070 is an affordable home theater projector that delivers image quality above what its price tag would suggest. In testing the projector, Home Theater Review found the W1070's image quality to be "pretty darn good," and Trusted Reviews says the W1070 "comfortably surpassed our expectations." As this is a projector, it's not going to have great sound, as T3 says it's "not a sound system for movies," but they also think "it does the job when you want some impromptu gaming action." With support for 3D, two HDMI 1.4a inputs, impressive image quality for the price, and a price south of a grand, it's hard to overlook the W1070 if you want a projector on the cheap.
