I couldn't be more pleased with Benq's HT2050 projector. This an unsolicited honest review from a buyer.

I replaced my old Benq non-HD projector with this one. The difference is daylight and dark. Literally. I can watch the HT2050 with the blinds opened.
Colors/contrast are much better with the room darker of course, but the old projector was not viewable with too much ambient light.

My projector is ceiling mounted about 12ft away from my viewing wall. The position of the seating in the room is anywhere from 12ft to 8ft. My screen turned out to be 122 inches diagonally.

The only adjustment I made to the projector from the standard settings was increasing the brightness. To me, all other settings are perfect right out of the box.

I have noticed that the source input to the projector can make a huge difference in picture quality. Blue Ray DVDs look terrific. Also 4k videos you can find on the internet look awesome. Most video from my satellite provider is not good quality, even if the channel proclaims broadcast in HD.

My only pain point so far is the speakers built into the projector. I already have a surround sound receiver and don't want to use the speakers, however, you must mute the speakers when the projector is powered on. There may be a way to mitigate this, but I haven't found it yet.

Finally, I can't imagine a projector costing $3k or more could be any better than this one. I may be wrong and I don't want to know if am wrong, because I LOVE the picture quality of the BENQ HT2050.

I bought the benq ht2050 which came with the free ceiling mount. However, the mount they included does not work with this projector. I spoke to customer service, they understand and transfer me to speak to my sale rep. The sale rep wont do anything, but told me my mount is free, nothing he can do! I hates to give negatives remark, but i highly recommend people to make sure what they throw in will works, not just bc it is free, it becomes your problem, not theirs! Bottom line, NO, i will not buy again from them or recommend anyone, but if you do, make sure the mount works. I gave them 2 stars. 1 for very nice when making the sell, 1 for customer service rep. 3 neg stars for way to handle the issue. Thanks.

GREAT BUY

Comments about BenQ HT2050:

I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift and we have all enjoyed it! It brings TV viewing (especially movies) to a whole new dimension for us. We are now so spoiled. Why pay high high prices for theater tickets and concession goodies? We can now wait for the DVD to come out and watch in the comfort of our own home and snack on our own snacks! The quality of this projector is unbelievable at a great price. Why did we wait so long?

Exceeded my expectations especially with ambient light.

Comments about BenQ HT2050:

This projector is way better than I expected. The color needed little adjustment, very accurate. And the picture is very watchable even on cloudy days with the windows not covered. The blacks are fairly dark. The speaker is fine for movies although I found I couldn't turn it down low enough, however when watching music videos it was very annoying and tinny. I finally plugged into the stereo system today and am much happier so that's the only less-than-great thing about the projector.

Fast delivery, easy set up. The picture quality is great. My son was the 1st to purchase this model. I liked his so well I purchased mine within a few days. This replaces my older Epson. Should give us a lot of quality family time watching our movies.

I am a newbie with projectors and have not used one with a computer before. I had a friend come to help me, but it was unbelievably easy! Took ten minutes from opening the box to watching the movie. The quality of the projection was excellent.

Great projector for the price. Although it's got a high black level and no horizontal lens shift. For a DLP projector at this price point, you couldn't ask for much more.
