The BenQ TH670 is being advertised as both a home-entertainment and a business projector. There are not many that could handle these two roles in a well-balanced manner, but this particular BenQ offering can serve to fit each category’s capacity quite well. When used as a data projector, it is capable of beaming high resolution images with a suitable level of brightness for a small to mid-sized room. When used as a home-entertainment model, viewers can happily enjoy 1080p resolution which is also suitable for the family room, and its brightness rating can even stand up to ambient light. As an added bonus, it offers a fast lag time which gamers can really appreciate.
The BenQ TH670 Can Fill the Capacity for Each of its Roles
As a DLP projector, the BenQ TH670 is an unusual one as it will only show very few rainbow artifacts as compared to its rivals. Rainbow artifacts are not that apparent in both data images or in full-motion color videos.
It comes with dimensions of 5.4 x 12.9 x 9.2-inches, and it only weighs 6-pounds and 10-ounces. This makes it quite small and lightweight enough to carry it around from room-to-room, or to stow it away when it’s not in use.
Installation and setting it up is fairly standard, and the unit comes with a manual focus and 1.2x manual zoom. All image inputs can be found on its rear panel, and these include two VGA ports (for computers or component video), a composite video port, and one HDMI port. Speaking of the HDMI port, it is 1.4a and supports 3D, however it does not support MHL. There is also a USB Type-A port but this is strictly used for supplying power to other devices.
The TH670 comes with a brightness rating of 3,000-lumens for its white brightness. It is for white brightness because, just like with most DLP projectors, it has a lower color brightness. While this may prove to be troublesome for some (as it requires tweaking and testing multiple settings to get the right color and white brightness for the room), users will have no trouble finding a comfortable brightness level when viewing images on an 80-inch screen inside a family room, at night, with the lights turned on.
When it comes to image performance and quality, data images thrown by the BenQ TH670 is near excellent, video quality is pretty good, and gaming shows little lag. There is a slight issue being the contrast ratio to be quite low, but this won’t be noticeable enough when the lights are on in the room. Overall, this particular projector is worth checking out if you need that all-in-one unit.
