BenQ HT1075 1080P ReviewIf you’re on a budget looking over 1080p projectors, the BenQ HT1075 being one of the top home theater projectors you can buy for under $1000 is worth your consideration. If this is your price range and you want the most value for your dollar (of course) you may also want to take a look at the following models:

  • Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030
  • InFocus IN8606HD
  • Optoma HD26
  • Viewsonic PJD7820HD

Along with the BenQ HT1075, we strongly believe the four models listed above are the very best you can buy in home theater for 2014 and well into 2015. All models listed above provide high quality images in high definition 1080p resolution. However, they are not identical in all features, all have their own strengths and weaknesses when compared side by side.

Back to the BenQ HT1075 Review

A little background information to begin: If you’re familiar with home theater projectors you may have hear or or even considered buying the the BenQ W1070 model. This is an older model that was released in 2012.

For nearly two years this was the top 1080p high-definition model a person could buy for under $1000. While the W1070 is still a decent model, technology advancements over the past 2 years have made it a bit less shiny 2014.

This new wave of technology has ushered in more than a few models to take its place at the top (models mentioned at the top of the page) these newer models have a few added and slightly upgraded features. One of these is from the same company the BenQ HT1075. Which we are reviewing here

BenQ HT series HT1075 review

Special Note: Word of advice, if you already own the W1070 and it’s working fine, don’t rush out to buy the BenQ HT1075. Yes, there are a few added or upgraded features but overall they are very similar.

Features of the HT1075 what it gives you


We have mentioned this more than once already, the native resolution is true high definition 1080p (1920×1080) provided in uncompressed format. This is one quality you want and need for the beginnings of a great home cinema projector experience.

Texas Instrument DarkChip3 – This higher technology enhances not only the brightness but also the contrast (10,000:1) allowing deeper, darker life-like images. Not to be too technical but the DarkChip3 technology provides the ability to enhance the function of the digital micro mirrors, producing a cinema like viewing experience.

Fluid Wireless –  At the beginning of this review we mentioned the BenQ W1070 model.

The HT1075 is an upgrade to this model in a few areas. The biggest upgrade vs the W1070 is the wireless capabilities it provides. But we want to make sure you know, for wireless capabilities, you need to buy kit. It costs about $50 extra.


Who should buy the the BenQ HT1075? Anyone in 2014 and probably well through 2015 who wants the best 1080p home cinema in their home for under $1000!

Yes, this is one of the better buys on the market. This a quality model. But we also want to make you aware of other models which have a similar capabilities and price:

  • Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030
  • InFocus IN8606HD
  • Optoma HD26
  • Viewsonic PJD7820HD

All the above models are 1080p high definition. Other than this, they all have their own strengths and weaknesses when compared side by side.

The biggest strengths of the HT1075, are wireless capabilities and the color and contrast provide by the DarkChip technology.
