Comments about BenQ HT3050:

An improvement over our previous projector an Optoma HD70. The bulb went out on it so thought it was time for an upgrade instead of repair. Pluses are increased size of display, resolution, ease of installation (was concerned that the existing mount would not work given the shorter throw distance but all was good. Only needed a different set of mounting screws and it was essentially plug and play.) . Entire set up was very easy. Projector People had the best deal I could find on this and the transaction with them was great.
On the other hand I kind of expected more of a wow factor out of it. We are displaying on a wall with standard interior paint, so mounting a screen might be a different story. The built in speakers are not impressive as you might imagine and need to be turned off each time you power up. Not experiencing any halo effect from the light escaping from around the lens mounting, as one professional reviewer has noted.

      Comments about BenQ HT3050:

      I absolutely love this projector. I use t for home theater, and it is my 3rd projector. I've had it 2 months now and cannot say enough good about it. Picture quality is good, straight across the the entire 100" screen I use. It is almost too bright! The adjustments are amazing, and the settings were almost at 100% perfect out of the box using the calibration DVD. I'll post if something bad happens, but right now, all I can say is buy with confidence!!
