The short-throw lens will display a 100” diagonal image from just five feet away and you get a five-watt speaker built in. A compact chassis makes it portable and easy to install in small rooms where users can enjoy the big screen experience for just $749.
Typically, I seek out reviews of home theater projectors that excel at the business of showing movies. But many people want to do more in their media rooms than just screen the latest Hollywood blockbuster. Many AV setups include a PC or console gaming system so for those enthusiasts, the TH671ST is an ideal display. It has all the image quality and capabilities of BenQ’s theater-dedicated models and adds a low input lag mode for those with itchy trigger fingers and Jedi-like reflexes.
I’ll be testing it over the next couple of weeks not only for the usual color accuracy and video processing that’s so important to movie-watching, but also for input lag. By filming a test pattern flash at 1000fps, I can determine just how long it takes a control input to translate to action on the screen.
The TH671ST appears to offer everything I’ve come to expect and admire from BenQ projectors. Check back here soon for my full review with benchmark tests and hands-on viewing.
