BenQ GV30 and GS50 projectorsJust because summer is almost over, doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. BenQ’s uniquely designed portable projectors—the GS50 and the GV30—are the perfect accessory to make any party or event truly memorable. Throw up a slideshow, watch movies or live streams, and play music all with just one device to have a good time with friends and family. Read on to find out what makes these projectors so special and how to enter for a chance to win one.

High-definition and immersive visuals for your viewing pleasure

GV30 vs GS50 ProjectionBoth the BenQ GV30 and the BenQ GS50 projectors are designed to be used in low to no-light environments. With them, you can project images between 30 inches to 100 inches in size to get optimal, bright high-definition quality. The GS50 projects at 1080p resolution with 500 lumens while the GV30 projects at 720p with 300 lumens. Now, you might think that 720p resolution means that the image just won’t look as good as a 1080p projection, but in Andy’s review of the GV30, you’ll see a comparison of projections from both these models side by side. And besides a colour variation, even if you look closely, you’d be hard-pressed to identify a noticeable difference in picture definition between the two.

Another reason these two little projectors are excellent choices for home theatre is their projection technology. Digital Light Processing (DLP) uses a chip made up of millions of tiny mirrors to reflect light from an LED lamp after it passes through a colour wheel. This type of projection results in higher colour accuracy and deeper contrast in shadows. Additionally, as opposed to laser projectors, DLP hardware is smaller and can fit inside more portable builds, allowing you to enjoy high-quality videos wherever you are—provided you have a flat, white surface to project on.

Portability and extra features make each projector a party favourite

The GV30 and GS50 come in cute, well-designed builds and can easily be transported anywhere with their built-in carrying straps and included carrying cases. Both also have about 2.5 hours of battery life so you can watch a movie completely wirelessly on a full charge. The 720p GV30 projector comes with a magnetic mount that allows you to easily and securely adjust the angle of projection to suit your needs. The 1080p GS50 projector has rubberized feet and a button-release kickstand for the same purpose. You can see its functionality and get the full effect of its cute, retro design in the GS50 review we posted on the blog. The GS50 is also IPX2 rated, meaning you can use it while it’s raining or by the pool without worrying about splashes!

We love a 2-in-1 device here on the blog, and both these projectors can also function as standalone Bluetooth speakers. So when you’re not using it for movie night, you can play music and enjoy the surprisingly powerful and dynamic audio that each produces. As our reviewer, Andy, put it, it’s like carrying a party in a box! As a bonus, both projectors come with wireless casting functionality and Android TV, opening up a whole world of media that you can project. What more could you want?
