Benq’s W710ST pro­jec­tor projects vi­su­als of up to 63 inches size from a short dis­tance of just one me­tre. This fea­ture makes it a must-have for those who wish to set up a per­sonal the­atre at home but lack the space that a nor­mal pro­jec­tor re­quires. What is more, its white and gray colours blend with most home in­te­ri­ors.the reg­u­lar pro­jec­tion area varies be­tween 33 inch and 300 inch di­ag­o­nally. What­ever the size, the im­age was bright and clear. Zoom level and fo­cus can be ad­justed us­ing the two rings at the front. Phys­i­cal keys on the top make for con­ve­nient nav­i­ga­tion. The lam­plife of 4,000-6,000 hours are ad­e­quate, but our con­cern was the av­er­age sound out­put from the 10W speaker. The con­nec­tiv­ity ports at the back of the ma­chine in­clude Com­pos­ite Video in, S-video in, Com­po­nent Video in, Au­dio in, Au­dio L/R in, Au­dio out, HDMI (x2), Mini USB and RS232. Con­sid­er­ing the price, the com­pany could have in­cluded a USB port as well. At 720P na­tive res­o­lu­tion, it isn’t a Full HD pro­jec­tor. How­ever, the com­pany claims it is 3D ready. We could not test this fea­ture as the 3D glasses are sold sep­a­rately. A 5-ft im­age from just a me­tre away—good for the home.
