Excellent User Reviews

Good Brand

Benq has good average ratings for its projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Benq W700+ owner reckoned that the product had a good 3D picture quality. said “Impressive 3D performance” in their review.

Easy to Use

One Benq W700+ reviewer thought it was easy to handle. wrote “Very good motion handling” however despite that they only gave this projector a score of 60 out of 100.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq W700+ supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W700+ also support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00), the JVC DLA-X95R, and the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub ($2,995.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq W700+ supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). This multimedia projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD 720). Across all projectors that have been available for more than two years the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

When compared to other projectors that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed the offset of, the Benq W700+'s offset of 136 percent is one of the biggest. The smallest offset of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.03%, the biggest is 140%, and the average offset is 100%.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Unacceptable Noise Level

One customer who reviewed it concluded that it was not noisy. wrote three years ago “Fans and colour wheel are noisy” in their review.

Inferior Picture Quality

One Benq W700+ owner who bought this projector thought it did not have good picture quality. said “Limited shadow detail” in their Benq W700+ review and scored it 60 out of 100.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of this type and age, the Benq W700+ does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00), or the Panasonic PT-RZ470 ($3,659.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support WiFi connectivity. The Benq W700+ is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Benq GP20 is also worth considering.

Quite Small Lamp Power

The lamp power of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W700+ range from 20W to 420W. With a lamp power of only 190 Watts, the Benq W700+ has a fairly small lamp power compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The lowest number of colours of projectors that are a similar age to the W700+ is 1M and the highest is 1,100M. The Benq W700+ has a quite low number of colours (only 1.07 million) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the W700+.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq W700+

Benq released the W700+ over three years ago.

720p (1280x720) Native Projector Resolution

The Benq W700+ has a maximum resolution of 720p (1280x720). That's 10% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 31 decibels, the Benq W700+ has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq W700+ has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the W700+.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the 5020UB (2,400 ANSI lumens), or the EH-TW9000 (2,400 ANSI lumens) both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-AT6000E (2,400 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
