Getting a projector with keystone adjustment is crucial and this one worked wonders. I had originally mounted the projector in the corner and while the keystone adjustment worked great I realized that even though the screen was centered the light projected was not. I ended up with the right side having a "screen area" lit up with nothing on it. Technically there was nothing wrong but it bothered the hell out of me so I just centered the wall mount.
The pictures provided are of my son playing the ps4 and some Netflix lost in space. Since the minute this thing has been hooked up my kids have been living in this room.
I also want to add that while there are epson projectors out there with very comparable specs I went with benq specifically for video games and low lag. I had a couple of friends with epsons who love their projectors but warned me that there are moments where video games have lag on the projector. With this benq there is zero lag.
I absolutely love this purchase and my new home theater room has already compelled three other people to go buy a projector!
Unfortunately, after hurrying home to un box this projector, I was very unhappy to find the black levels were not up to par with a cheaper DLP projector that I had purchased years ago. While the color was indeed more "lively" and had better accuracy, I felt that it only was on average 10% brighter and 10% more accurate. Please keep in mind I am using a very high quality HDMI, as well as a Da-Lite fixed projection screen.
Unfortunately the story only gets worse from here. I noticed that while on a complete black scene there was light leakage through the top of the projector. I believe this may have led to the not so great image quality, however I will never know because this projector is being returned as I type this.
The reason that I wrote poor manufacturing quality is because there were dust blobs already stuck in the lens upon receipt. I had chosen this project for many reasons, and one big reason was the "near" sealed lens. The fact that there was dust already caked in the lens is not a good sign.
The last issue I had with this project is connectivity issues. The projector would very randomly have a flash of static, followed by a "lost signal" on the screen, only to regain signal and repeat the process at random times. I checked the source, tried different sources(Xbox, Cable Box, Computer), different HDMI cables (I was using Audio Quest cables), and also confirming that the HDMI cable was pushed in all the way. I also tried different length cables. The projector would not lose a signal if I wiggled the HDMI cable, instead it was at random intervals.
Ben Q has left a sour taste in my mouth, and although I wish I could give them a better review and be happier with their project, I will instead have to move onto another company.
One last thing, I hooked up my smart blu-ray player and I was getting an "Out of Range" or I would get a picture then it would start searching again. I have a 25 ft. HDMI cable. I had no trouble with the cable coming from my cable box. I hooked up my device with a shorter cable and I had no issues. I ordered an HDMI signal booster and hopefully that will fix the issue.
Update: I bought the booster and that seemed to fix my "Out of Range" and "Searching for Signal" issue. I've included a product link as well. For the power source, I did what another user suggested. I used an Apple iPhone charger block.

JustAnOpinion: Sorry, I could not respond to your comment. Thank you for the great suggestion and I will consider it when I have to replace my cable. It would be the better choice.
Update: 8/6/18 I didn't have a switch to switch between devices so I bought one. For those that have issues as I had above, with this switch, I do not need the power amp any longer. I use the coaxial out to my surround system and it sounds great.

I upgraded from an old Benq DLP that still had a great picture at only 768p. I really didn't expect such an amazing improvement. The colors, contrasts, and brightness seem nearly perfect out of the box. I am projecting on a white wall with no special screen and it still blows me away as well as very much impressing our guests. The image is currently 120 inches diagonal and sitting 8 to 12 feet back it looks incredibly sharp and vivid.
I love that it had lots of input sources including old analog sources. We connected our old Wii console and the image upscaled well for an awesome family gaming experience. I also played some Star Wars Battlefront and it felt epic on the huge screen!
The image is so bright I actually turned down the brightness for night viewing. The default brightness was just right with some ambient light however... with just a white wall, no screen.
I wish it had a bit more vertical lens adjustment to bring the image higher on the wall when front ceiling mounted (projector inverted) without tilting the projector. I could use the Keystone adjustment but the borders get a bit larger when using Keystone compensation.
Just get it and try not to smirk when your friends show off their puny 65 inch flat panel TV that cost the same.
La qualité de l’image est très supérieure à ce à quoi je m’attendais (peut être dû à mon expérience avec des projecteurs professionnels). Le mode cinéma apporte plus doux que les couleurs éclatantes.
Le shift Lens vertical est très pratique pour pouvoir l’utiliser sur une table basse (mon cas)
Le bruit du ventilateur s’entend quand il n’y a plus aucun bruit dans le film, sinon, on ne s’en rend pas compte
Globalement ravi de mon achat ! Je recommande
-good black levels
Improvements? None really worth mentioning at this price point.
Super quiet! Love our new home theater.
