BenQ HT3050 Review and Specs

BenQ HT3050 Review

In this BenQ HT3050 review, I wanted to take a look at a brilliant, new-age projector with boundless possibilities. And I don’t exaggerate its value!

Let’s talk about BenQ HT3050 specs. It has 1080p native resolution, nicely hidden focus knob with high ridges along with a zoom knob, and up/down lens shift - everything positioned well in one compartment. Indicators for the lamp life, power and temperature are built in the front panel. I was also very satisfied with its connectivity - the projector has 2x HDMI, 12V trigger, Type-A, and Mini-B USB inputs, two computer inputs, and audio in/out.

BenQ HT3050 Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Short-throw projector - able to display 100'' image on the distance of just 8.4'
  • 1.3x zoom and vertical lens shift make it very easy to set up
  • Colors can be seen as a director envisioned - a true cinematic experience
  • Quiet fan, which means you won’t be distracted when watching favorite movies
  • Black levels on the top, with no rainbow effects
  • Adequate 3D support
  • Reliable construction

Cons

  • The bulb burns out, so you need to replace it quite often
  • Manual lens shift slider is a bit bulky and hard to move
