benq ultra short throw projectorYou will not believe the video quality possible with the new BenQ 4K V7050i ultra short throw projector. This is the ultimate home theatre projector from a company that has been building amazing projectors for many years. We sent this projector for a review recently and now it has returned to Best Buy so we can give it away to one very lucky reader of our blog. Take some time to read the review and watch the review video. Then read this article for details on how to enter for a chance to win one.

An amazing projection just an ultra short throw away

What is the benefit of an ultra short throw projector like the BenQ V7050i? Look at the image here on the right. Unlike a standard projector, the kind you have seen in the past, this new technology enables you to place it extremely close to the same wall on which you’ll project your movie, your Netflix show, your brilliant 4K anything! Inches away! And the image it projects is bright, ultra-high resolution, with brilliant HDR-Pro enhanced colours as only a BenQ projector delivers.

Read Andy Baryer’s review to learn how he set up the projector. You’ll learn some tips that will inspire you and help you decide where it will go if you win this contest.

Screen the next big movie premiere in your home

One key consideration for anyone using a short throw projector is where you project the image. Obviously you can’t use a dark wall. You need a reflective surface. Andy shows in his review that his movie room has a special flat white painted wall … and the image from this projector was fantastic. However, short throw projectors deliver the best image on a screen designed to limit the impact of ambient light on the projected image. He also mentioned that the best option is an ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) screen. These screens are designed to allow the upward projected light to be the only light that is reflected: this means the best projected image appears even when the room is well lit.

As I see it, you have three things to decide after getting this projector: what room to place it in, what surface will you use for the projected image, and how you’ll get the content you love into the projector. For that last one, you’ll be very pleased to learn that BenQ made the list of options extensive: you could stream from your phone but that is only one of many options!

Entering this contest is easy, and you can enter in three different ways:

  1. In a comment below, tell us which BenQ projector is best for your home, a short throw projector or a standard projector you place far from the screen and why.
