BenQ has devoted considerable time and effort towards producing some of the best DLP projectors available today.

I just received the HT3050 3D DLP Projector for review and so far, it is upholding BenQ’s highest standards.

The HT3050 sports 2000 lumens output along with 3D, built-in speakers, and a cinema-quality lens with a low-dispersion coating, all wrapped in a compact and lightweight chassis. Connectivity extends to two HDMI ports plus component, composite, and VGA options. With the addition of a wireless kit, a third HDMI input becomes available without the requirement for a cable.

BenQ terms the projector “CinematicColor” Technology as a reference to its Rec.709 native color gamut. My initial measurements support that claim. The HT3050 is very accurate and with a few tweaks to its vast array of calibration controls, I’m enjoying reference-level accuracy from a $999 projector.

I’m also impressed by its high-quality lens, which easily matches the performance I’ve seen from many more-expensive projectors. A responsive DLP light engine helps with that as its single-chip design means there are no convergence errors. I’ll also be checking out some 3D Blu-rays. Though the format is all but gone from flat-panels, it’s still a treat to watch Avatar on a good 3D projector.

The HT3050 will go through my battery of tests, a full calibration, then a few afternoons spent watching movies. If it performs like other BenQs I’ve reviewed, I know I’m in for a good time. Stay tuned to this space for my full review appearing soon!
