"Great 3LED mini projector from BenQ"4.5 starson by jensbau
Pros: - 3LED (RGB) technology for rich colors
- Portability, low weight and size
- Can connect with many other gadgets like iPod, iPhone, USB Stick, cell phone, smartphone, etc.
- Touch keypad and easy-to-navigate user interface
Cons: - the projector bag is a little weak
Summary: With the GP1 Benq developed certainly one of the top products in the mini projector category. I?ve been comparing mini projectors for a while and finally decided to go for the Benq GP1. One of the most important things for projectors is certainly the picture quality and brightness. This mini projector does a good job here, coming with 3LED (RGB) technology which produces much richer colors than LCD technology. Also, 100 ANSI lumens are enough to display good pictures up to a size of 80 inches. 100 lumens doesn?t sound much, but is quite a lot for LED technology as LEDs are three times brighter than normal projector lamps. With a 100 lumens Benq currently plays in the top league of mini projectors.
I did NOT buy this device with the intention to use it as a home theatre projector. My intention was to bring it to other places like friends? houses and parties and to show a couple of pics and movies from my other portable devices like iPod, USB Flash stick, cell phone, etc.
This is also supposed to be the main purpose for the GP1 anyway and here it shows it real strengths. Don?t compare it to home theatre projectors because that will distort your comparison result. Or would you carry a 10 lbs with the size of 5 x 10 x15 inches in your bag all the time??
Anyway, I enjoy the portability and the connectability with other gadgets. Combined with the 3LED display technology this is really a fun gadget and has contributed to many memorable gatherings with friends and family.
