“Weighing in at just 7.2 lbs, and street priced under $1,000, it is one of the lightest and least expensive 4000 lumen projectors on the market….” – “In High Contrast and Cinema modes, color is accurate, with good saturation that makes movies, photographs, and other graphics look realistic.”

Projector Central Reviews the BenQ SP890

Our friends at recently reviewed the BenQ SP890 presentation projector.

They praised the BenQ SP890’s brightness, contrast, and ability to double as a home theater projector with relatively few limitations.

The SP890 is not the first 1080p presentation projector, but it does have the highest contrast of any comparable projector. At 50,000:1, the difference between the SP890 and a typical 2,000:1 data projector is immense. As far as black level, there is no contest. Shadow detail is exceptionally well-defined and high-contrast scenes are presented accurately. Foregrounds seem to pop off of backgrounds, and there is a clear sense of depth in high-contrast material. Photographs in particular look striking and life-like. Even 1080p film content, which is notoriously hard to reproduce well on a data projector, looks vivid and three-dimensional. –
