BenQ W500 720p Projector

BenQ has just announced the US release of the W500, its latest venture into home theater projectors. The three-LCD system can display a true 720p picture and has an HDMI input for accepting virtually any HD signal, including 1080p. The firm's trademark Hollywood Quality Video processing engine is also in place for removing per-pixel motion artifacts and improving the overall picture. BenQ claims a home theater-sized 1,100 lumens of brightness and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio at picture sizes up to 100 inches across. Analog video is covered with dual component, VGA, RCA, and S-video ports.

The projector is said to be shipping immediately for US speciality shops and online stores. Official pricing is set at $1,499; however, even BenQ has said that it today expects the W500 to sell on the street at a significantly lower $1,299, making it one of the more inexpensive HD-capable projectors available today.
