- 100% Private
The BenQ W1720 is the successor to the popular BenQ W1700. It now offers compatibility with HLG and HDR10.
4K UHD resolution for high-resolution images
In terms of resolution, the BenQ W1720 relies on the proven 4K UHD resolution with 3840 x 2160 pixels. Thanks to the 4K resolution, it ensures a razor sharp picture. This makes it ideal for displaying UHD Blu-rays or 4K streams, such as Netflix. The 4K resolution of the BenQ projector also provides an interesting foundation when it comes to gaming.
Since not all the source material is available in 4K, but in Full HD, the BenQ projector offers a good upscaling function to 4K, so you can maximise the picture quality
100% Rec. 709 for perfect HDTV colours
When it comes to colour reproduction, the BenQ W1720 is well positioned. It is able to represent 100% of the Rec. 709 colour space, the standard used for HDTV content. The colours are thus rendered very naturally and deliver excellent image quality. The 100% Rec. 709 colour space is achieved thanks to the RGBRGB colour wheel equipped within the W1720.
BenQ's own technologies ensure the best possible image quality. These are the CinemaMaster Video + and the CinematicColor technology.
One point that highlights the BenQ W1720 over its predecessor is its compatibility with the HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR10 standards. Thanks to the compatible standards, the 4K projector is future proofed for the coming standards and you do not have to worry about not being able to work with the new standards in the future. HLG and HDR10 will be the standard for high-quality 4K content in the coming years, so you're on the safe side with the BenQ W1720.
3D at 1080p for living home cinema
When it comes to home cinema features, the BenQ W1720 also comes with a 3D function. Although it presents the 3D content not in 4K, but in 1080p, but this is standard in the DLP projectors. You can connect a 3D Blu-ray player directly to the projector to get started. For 3D glasses, the W1720 relies on DLP Link technology. The 3D shutter glasses are optionally available.
The DLP projector has 3840 x 2160 pixels of the 4K UHD resolution in 16:9 format. For light output, it is 2000 lumens which is a reasonable level for a projector with RGBRGB colour wheel. Its contrast is at a level of 10,000:1 and in our BenQ W1720 review we found it performed very well.
Here, the projector offers everything you need in home cinema. These include two HDMI inputs, one of which supports HDCP 2.2. There is also a VGA input for analog signals. The internal 5 watt speaker is powered by a 3.5 mm jack. A 3.5 mm jack output is also available. For control and updates a RS232 or a mini USB interface is available. There is also a USB Type A connector for 5V DC power, not to mention the 12 V trigger connection which you can use to control a screen, for example.
The 4K HDR projector is equipped with a 1.1x zoom. It reaches a picture width of 2m at a distance of between about 300 and 330 cm.
In the box you can find a power cable, a lens cap, a remote control with batteries, a quick start guide and a detailed instruction on disc.
Conclusion: The BenQ W1720 4K HDR projector with future-proof internals!
In conclusion, the BenQ 4K projector has become a worthy successor to the W1700. It delivers an even better image with new compatibility features and an improved DLP chip. The BenQ W1720 price is on an appealing level.
