    I have a streaming channel and i stream with projectors at the moment, but my question is what makes this projector special on the price? how does it differ from a benq h2150st ? both 1080P but this one has less lumens and it cost 1k more.   (1 Answer)

      The BenQ does have more Lumens (2,200 vs 1,800) and built-in speakers if moving it around is important to you (wasn't to me). But take a look at the below figures and you'll find out why it costs more. There were other things I factored in, but I researched these models heavily along with 3 other brands priced from $675 to $4,000 and bought the Sony HW45ES. Contrast Ratio: Sony HW45ES - 120,000:1 BenQ HT2150ST - 15,000:1 3D: Sony - Yes BenQ - No Lens Shifting: Sony - Yes BenQ - No Audible Noise: Sony - 22.0dB BenQ - 29.0 dB Lamp Life: Sony - 4,000 hrs. Ecomode increased this to 6,000 hrs BenQ - 3,500 hrs Warranty: Sony - 3 yrs BenQ - 1 yr

          If you go to: http://www.projectorcentral.com/Sony-VPL-HW45ES-projection-calculator.htm You will find that it needs to be 10' 10" to get the 110" screen size.

        How well can this projector be tuned to the projector screen? I currently have a screen with a 3 to 4" border so there is a margin or error but would like to get a screen with a 1/2" border. Would it be difficult to get this that accurate?   (2 Answers)

          The accuracy of the project is excellent. It fit perfect on two different screens that I hung within a couple of week. So yes, you will have zero problems having it to fit.

          No, it does not. You must purchase that separately or do as I did and ask for a free $229.00 Sanus ceiling mount if you buy it from Best Buy. It is a great projector!
