    To all that read this review, I am new to the projector experience. I bought this BenQ HT3050 projector almost a month ago, and I am still amazed at the picture quality. Setup was easy and I mounted it to my ceiling using the BenQ ceiling mount. Viewing against my wall provides a nice picture but viewing on an Elite 125" motorized screen significantly ups the video experience. The default settings look great and after tinkering with some setting, I went back to the default settings. I've watched movies, sporting events, and played video games without any lag. The projector does require a darker room to bring out the “Wow” factor. The fan noise is very low and the speakers are quite loud but lack bass. I have the audio sound level set to one but occasionally up it to two. Anything higher is too loud for my taste. I have not tested the 3D glasses but plan to do so in the future. Overall, I am very satisfied with this projector.

    Excellent 3D Projector

    This projector looks amazing with no adjustments necessary. I purchased the WOW to adjust the projector and I can tell you that I only modified the brightness and nothing else. This projector uses DLP link 3D glasses and I purchased the EStar America ESG601 and they work wonderful with this projector. I also purchased a 120'' 16:9 Homegear motorized screen and it fills every inch of it without any issues. It took a lot of work to set the wiring but it is so well worth it. Add a nice sound bar and you are all set for your movie viewing experience. I think the 3D looks the same or better than at the theatre. The sound that comes out of the projector is loud enough but nothing compared to a sound bar.

    I bought this Benq 1080p projector from Best Buy based on the consistently high reviews I saw in several different places. It was installed in my home as a replacement for an outdated Seleco projector on 12/27/17 by the Geek Squad at Best Buy. I'm blown away by the picture quality. This projector comes with it's own internal speakers but these were disconnected by the Geek Squad since I already had installed surround speakers. Haven't tried the 3D yet. Very satisfied with this purchase.

    Do I really need a projector screen?

    This is an amazing projector. I just used our wall as the screen and the image/picture is really great. The sound level of the projector fan is low....most specially if you have your receiver running. Overall, I am very satisfied with this projector.

    Bought this in Sept 2016. It has been 4 months and we are extremely happy with this projector. I have tried it on a bare wall and it looks great! Only drawback is if ... you will need a dark room.

    This works great for gaming and movies. When gaming there is no delay and it's awesome to have a big picture this clear. Movies are great as well. Would be 5 stars but the first one broke within a month. Second one seems fine

    We purchased this for our in-home movie theater. It runs pretty quiet. It's definitely quieter than our last Epson. Watching Finding Dory in 3D was awesome.

    I project this onto a white wall, so not ideal conditions. But this thing is AWESOME. I can't wait to get a proper screen for it
