Everyone dreams of having a home theatre with big screen. It allows the whole family to snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy a movie. Nowadays, projectors aren’t prohibitively expensive and you don’t need a large space either. There are more and more small households with people living alone but getting projectors.


However, you shouldn’t only look at the price, features or performance when choosing a projector. You should consider what you need to find the projector that best suits you. You can quickly find which projector you need by answering the following 6 questions.

Q1. What’s a Commercial vs a Home Cinema Projector?

In general, projectors can be divided into commercial projectors and home projectors. Commercial projectors are mostly used in offices, conference rooms, or conference centers. These are not typically used in dark rooms, and participants are mainly watching presentations. From a design perspective, commercial projector should be bright enough to make text clear so that people can see the contents of your briefing. Basically, commercial projectors for small and medium-sized conference rooms are about 3,000 to 3,500 lumens (the unit used to measure brightness of light). A projector may need 6,000 to 8,000 lumens to cover a large conference center for one or two hundred people, or 10,000 lumens for a large screen at an outdoor performance.


As for a home theater projector, it should be selected based on your needs. For example, if you want to go camping, you should choose a portable projector. If you like watching in a dark room, you can choose a projector with authentic color accuracy. There are high brightness projectors for environments with ambient light, and projectors with low input lag are great for playing video games.


True colors evoke feelings of sorrow, joy, romance and thrills by preserving the original image. In order to present the original film colors that creators imagined for you, our exclusive CinematicColor™ technology, corrected by BenQ's THX and ISF dual-certified engineers, delivers perfect color consistency and reproduces the original image from directors. You won’t lose shadow details either, so viewers can enjoy the movie as it was intended!

Q2. What If I Can’t Get a Dark Room?

Most places are not completely dark. In the living room of the average consumer, there will always be some faint light from windows. So a higher lumen projector, around 3000 lumens, works best.

If the quality of movies is a big concern for you, and you happen have a space that can be made dark for viewing, then you should choose a projector with higher resolution, color and grayscale performance. BenQ's home projectors provide the most accurate color, a wide range of the color gamut, all with reduced lamp energy consumption and an extended lamp life.

Q3. What If I Don’t Have Enough Space?


As for a small suite or bedroom, perhaps just 10 feet by 10 feet, since you’ve a narrower space, the projection distance becomes more important. It is better to buy a short-throw projector. We recommend BenQ short-throw projectors. From just 2.5m (8’ 2.5”) away, you can project a 100” screen, which is perfect for making the most out of small spaces.


In fact, in most small rooms, a screen just 60” to 80” large creates a completely immersive experience. Compared to 60” televisions on the market, projectors offer more affordable, portable, and flexible zoom or display sizes. Also, it clearly has the better price-performance ratio.

Q5. What Can I Get for Budgets of S$1,500 / S$2,000 / S$2,500 / S$3,000?

If your budget range is S$1,000 to S$1,500, you can choose Full HD Home Projectors - W1090 and W1210ST.

For budget ranges of S$1,500 to S$2,700, we recommend our 4K Home Projectors – TK800, W1700 and W2700. The projector comes with a finely textured high-quality curtain, so you could enjoy a cinema-like visual experience.

If you prefer the highest quality visual enjoyment, you should budget S$3,000 or more. At this level, we recommend you seek out professional audio-visual system designers to help sketch out your floor plan to install the BenQ CinePro series projectors with multi-channel audio -a main speaker, a center speaker, a subwoofer, even satellite speakers around the perimeter. You can choose a high end screen that’s flat with color temperature accuracy. Raise and lower the screen with a remote control. By the time you’re done, your home theater may be better than a movie theater!

Consider that a movie ticket goes for around US$10. If you buy 2 tickets at a time, and go to theatres once every 2 weeks, it would cost you US$1,000 and you would have only watched 50 movies. That means that as long as you intend to see more than 50 movies, a projector is a more economical choice.
