BenQ W1110s Review - Sound and Conclusions Review


BenQ W1110s – 3D Picture Quality

Since there weren’t any 3D glasses supplied with the W1110s, I wasn’t able to test this aspect of its performance.

BenQ W1110s – Sound Quality

While the W1110s lacks the clarity and soundstage of its step-up W2000 sibling, it still enjoys greater power and a more rounded sound than is typical of built-in projector audio systems.

The new Football sound setting is passable rather than brilliantly effective. It pushes the upper mid-range and slightly expands the soundstage to add more oomph to crowd noise, while the commentary track always stands proud of the background cheering (or jeering).

However, the crowd noise can sound a little too thin and harsh to be realistic, and neither does it spread far enough beyond the projector’s body to really immerse you in the action.

Other Things to Consider

The remote control provided with the W1110s is excellent. It’s small enough to sit comfortably in your hand, but large enough not to disappear too easily down the back of the sofa. Best of all, its buttons are brightly backlit, so it’s easy to use in a dark room.

If you’re thinking of using a W1110s for gaming as well as footie and movies, I have good news: on average it suffers with only 25ms of input lag – a low enough figure that shouldn’t have a substantial impact on your gaming performance.

Should I buy a BenQ W1110s?

The budget projector market is an extremely competitive one right now, with particularly notable rivals being the ultra-cheap £300 Optoma H183X, the £630 Acer V7500 and BenQ’s own £760 W2000.

The W1110s holds its own in such company, however, especially if you’re a die-hard sports fan attracted by the Football mode that the W1110s adds to proceedings without elevating the cost.BenQ W1110SWhite BenQ DLP Projector Top View


While the new Football-themed picture and sound features of the W1110s are in truth pretty minor additions to the spec of the original W1110, overall, they make what was already a decent projector more attractive to sports fans – without adding to its cost.
