Projectors are being bought nowadays for a whole range of reasons, whether it is for home entertainment systems, presentations or just projecting your PC display on to your wall. The projector we’ve got to review today is the BenQ W1060, which is primarily a Home Cinema projector. It can project at a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, is HD ready and features a variety of special view modes for different environments such as gaming, cinema, bright and living room. At £750, is it worth it? Let’s take a closer look…

When you first open the box, you’re presented with a carrying case with the projector and all of its cables inside. If we open up the front pocket, you’ll find a range of different cables and accessories including:

  • Quick Start Guide
  • Manual CD
  • VGA Cable
  • Power Cord
  • Remote Control with backlight
  • Battery

You can purchase other accessories for the BenQ W1060, including a ceiling mount, spare lamp kit, RS232 cable and a soft carry case.

If we move on to the BenQ W1060 itself, you’ll see that it’s a relatively normal looking projector in terms of the overall design, however it’s very lightweight and it’s curved body allows for the projector to be stored away very easily.

The W1060 sports a sleek white and silver casing, with the BenQ logo featured on the top of the projector.

The front of the projector is obviously where the actual lamp, used for the projection, is situated. On the left of this there is an air vent, to allow hot air to escape, and also the BenQ logo.

The small circle on the right is the receiver for the remote control.

Around both sides, you’ve got some air vents because, as with most projectors, they’ll become very hot after prolonged usage.

If we take a look at the buttons and various features on the top, you’ll find the zoom and focus wheels at the front, near the lamp.

Towards the rear, this is where the menu buttons, such as Menu, Source, OK and directional buttons are located.

Now, the rear of the projector is where we’ve got the most going on. You’re able to hook up a wide range of devices to the BenQ W1060 including TVs, PCs, Laptops and Smartphones (via HDMI).

The rear ports include VGA, 2x HDMI, component, composite, S-video, analogue RCA and 3.5mm audio inputs. There’s also a 3.5mm jack for audio output and a USB service port for upgrading the firmware when an update is available.

The bottom of the BenQ W1060 features four rubber feet to keep the unit from slipping. On the underside, at the front, there’s also a small leg that can be extended to allow the projector to be lifted slightly, just in case you don’t have anything tall enough to seat the W1060 on.
