Here are some benefits specific to the BenQ W1070 :
The W1070 has Colorific technology. What does that mean? It means radiant, life-like color. BenQ’s DLP technology display gives you more than one billion stunning colors, more than any LCD projector. With true to life color images, you will feel immersed in your gaming experience. It is also one of the easiest to setup. The built-in speakers are plug-n-play ready. Only the power cord and video source connection are needed to begin your gaming experience. The preferred connections are of course HDMI, however BenQ has added other connectivity options as well including Component Inputs (in case you have an old Super Nintendo you want to dust off and play), S-Video, VGA (to connect your computer) RS-232 and more. This means any gaming system you have is compatible with this projector.

If you want the latest in eco-friendly technology, this projector has it. With BenQ’s SmartEco technology, you can save up to 70% of lamp power consumption(This is a great power saving feature). This lowers electric costs, and maintenance costs. If the projector is on for over three minutes without a display source, it automatically turns on the Eco Bank Mode. Every mode of this projector saves energy and elongates the life of the projector lamp.

So all of this sounds great, but what do the reviews actually say?
