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!

  1. 1. The short throw BenQ projector would be best because we have a small living room where we would watch movies.

  2. The short throw projector is the thing for me because it allows me to be able to move it around from room to room and is adjustable despite the size of the room. It works with all sizes and sorts of viewing areas.

  3. The short throw projector would work best for me because I already have a normal projector lol.

    Its limiting in the space it can be used. And it’s really annoying when someone walks in front of it. A short throw projector means kids are less like doors and more like windows!

  4. The BenQ short throw projector would work best for me because it is more versatile so I could use it in a smaller room.

  5. A short throw projector like the BenQ 4K UHD Home Theatre Projector (V7050i) would be the most versatile. That said, the BenQ HT8050 4K 2200-Lumen DLP Projector would still be pretty awesome, even if we couldn’t use it on as many walls in our home. Thank you!

  6. The best projector for my home is the BenQ 4K V7050i ultra short throw projector as I don’t have room to project using a standard projector. Can’t wait for movie night!

  7. I think the BenQ 4K V7050i ultra short throw projector would be the best fit for me. I don’t have a lot of room for a standard projector to expand the image.

  8. I think a short throw projector would be best for us. I have a perfect large flat white wall in my living room that’s just waiting to be noticed

  9. A standard projector would be the best BenQ projector for my home because I have the space available to use it to get a large size image projected.

  10. We’ve got the perfect wall in our basement for the BenQ V7050i 4k UHD ultra short throw projector!

  11. I would love to have a standard projector you place far from the screen, so we can have an outdoor movie night!

  12. A short throw projector would be better for inside my home and we could use it in both the man cave or the family room, I would also like to use it outside in the summer.

  13. I would love the small throw projector as I have limited space in my apartment. I would also love it as it would bring back fond memories of my childhood, when my Dad had a small movie house. I would get a cinema scope screen for it. Nostalgia ++ Thanks for the chance.

  14. Short throw is best for me. Very small space in my office for a long throw. I’d place it 18″ from the screen.

    It would easily fit on my media stand and I would purchase a screen for it.

  15. Our family loves to do outdoor movies and our old projector broke. With summer coming up it would be so fun to get an awesome new projector.

  16. A short throw projector would be great for my needs as I don’t have enough room in my family room to set up a standard projector!

  17. I would try this on a living room wall first, then in other rooms and outside. I would consider a screen after seeing the results.

  18. A short throw projector would be best for our home because it’s more versatile. Initially I would try it on a living room wall.
