This review is from: BenQ W710ST 1280 x 720 2500 Lumens DLP HD Short-Throw Projector
Pros: Short throw makes it great for playing Wii/Kinect games without casting a shadow on the screen.
The display looks great sitting about 12' back
Cons: There are only 3 mount holes for ceiling mounts.
The keystone adjustment leaves you wanting more.
If the projector is mounted upside-down 8" from the ceiling, then there is about a 1'6" gap between the ceiling and the top of the screen. This isn't really much of a con, but it makes it difficult to have a large screen without cutting into my center speaker and the electrical outlets. This also makes it feel like you have to point your Wiimotes at the ground for them to work properly.
In a dark room with a fairly dark screen I notice a slight rainbow effect with motion or if I move my eyes too quickly.
At 144" 720p looks pixelated. I can see each individual pixel pretty clearly.
Standard 640 x 480 composite video looks absolutely terrible at 144"
None of these cons are worth losing an egg, they're more of an inconvenience than actual problems.
Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with this projector.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price,
No Micro$oft tax,
Great build quality,
Display looks amazing,
AMD NEO is very fast,
Comes with driver CD
Comes with Express Gate
Cons: ION is better than the HD 4250,
Multiple drivers on the disc are a mess,
Touchpad is EXTREMELY sensitive.
Other Thoughts: I have to disable the touchpad while I type in MS Word, or else the cursor jumps around because it's so sensitive.
I had a hard time getting the touchpad drivers to work properly.
Pros: This chip is very fast!
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: When my 775 socket mobo died I decided it was a good time to upgrade. the difference between this and my old E8200 overclocked to 3.2Ghz is night and day. I am still in denial of how fast this chip runs. I'm not even going to bother overclocking this chip, it is amazing as it is.
I got an after market cooler because I got an OEM chip and the temperature under load is barely over 40C on core 0, and high 30s for core 1. Idle temp averages anywhere from 13-19C for both cores.
