4 Reasons Why BenQ HT3050 is Our Best Timeless 1080p Projector

BenQ W2000 1080p projector is a timeless classic.

“I never leave reviews but was absolutely thrilled with the purchase and wanted to share. This far exceeded any expectations that I had, and I am glad that I made the purchase."

-by David Trejo on Amazon, December 2015.

“Works great! I have been using for almost a year now with zero issues.."

-by IAMRAMEKIN on Amazon, September 2017.

"It is an absolute pleasure to watch movies and tv, but also play my PS4 on, with no lag times! I have a 110” screen, and it’s wonderful! I recommend this product to anyone looking for a great projector to watch movies/tv or to game on! You will not regret it!"

-by Lucas F. on Amazon, August 2016.


We all remember the BenQ W1070. It was widely regarded as a classic projector that delivers a bright, colorful, and detailed image with a shorter viewing distance. After that, BenQ created the HT3050, which became one of our veteran offerings in the 1080p category and packs all the technology that makes our home cinema projectors some of the best on the market. With its vast set of features such as outstanding color performance and ease of installation, it has won over Amazon reviewers consistently and remains one of BenQ's proudest creations. 

Let’s take a look at four real life scenarios where the BenQ HT3050 is the perfect fit for user needs.

Can I install a projector in a small room?

Use your BenQ W2000 1080p projector in a small room thanks to its short-throw lens technology.

One of the main reasons to use a projector instead of a TV is for a bigger size screen. A TV with a 100″ screen is unimaginable, but such screen sizes are easily attainable using a projector. When using a projector for a real cinematic movie watching experience, you do not need a large room dedicated to it.

BenQ’s HT3050 projector comes equipped with a short throw lens that can project a massive 100″ screen from just 2.5m away. Additionally, with 2D keystone and vertical lens shift, it can be placed on a table or even sideways, making it perfect for the living room.

“Easy to set up and install, with lots of advanced fine-tuning controls to match your environment and screen.”

Is the picture quality of a projector good enough for movies and games?

BenQ W2000 exclusive CinematicColor technology with 100% Rec. 709 color space.

The BenQ HT3050 includes our exclusive CinematicColor technology with 100% coverage of the Rec. 709 color space and a factory calibration report in every box. 

By incorporating a 6x speed RGBRGB color wheel with custom segment angles and coatings, the HT3050 reproduces colors in movies as intended by film directors. CinematicColor technology gives you authentic colors right in the living room. Also, with unique picture modes like cinema, bright, and vivid, the HT3050 guarantees the best performance regardless of the room or conditions you choose.

“Picture is so crystal clear. Black is black and not grey. So crisp that I can see the dust particles flying when during the movie someone was running in the field. So impressive. Love it!”

-by ska on Amazon, October 2018.

“It’s super bright, super sharp, amazing color, awesome contrast, the blacks are deep and the whites, really white (not grayish).”

Can I play video games on a projector? Is the lag too much?

Play video games on the BenQ W2000 1080p projector with game mode for no lag.

Gaming on a projector can be a concern because of input lag, which can make your game feel unresponsive. The BenQ HT3050 has a unique game mode available that prioritizes quick response times for proper gaming with very little lag.

With a BenQ HT3050 in game mode, you can enjoy an immersive gaming experience like no TV can offer.

“I watch movies on it and play games on it with zero noticeable lag (and I’m super picky about lag.)"

-by IAMRAMEKIN on Amazon, September 2017.

Is it a good idea to buy a 1080p projector or should I go for 4K?

4K seems to be everywhere, but most of the content out there is still only 1080p. Full HD is a high quality resolution that remains very popular for content available on Blu-ray discs, video game consoles, and streaming platforms like Netflix. The best part is you get excellent performance and value with the BenQ HT3050 1080p projector.

“I spent a lot of time deciding between a reasonably priced projector with great specs or a 4K 65″ TV. But, since I needed a bigger screen for movies and gaming, I gave the W2000(HT3050) a try. All I can say is that it has been so much fun, and the picture quality is great at 1080p."

-by Cheeks on Amazon, April 2016.


Most projectors last for only a couple of years on the market before they are made obsolete by the advances of technology. However, the BenQ HT3050 full HD projector has remained relevant since it launched in 2015 because of its features and top-of-the-line performance.

This model has become the pride of our projectors after many years of winning consumer’s hearts. It also won the EISA Award European Home Theater Projector 2016-2017 for its magnificent color performance and user convenience.
