AV Projectors of the Year
After we’d reviewed a series of projectors based on Texas Instruments’ clever XPR technology, which creates Ultra-HD resolution from multiple hits of a lesser-resolution panel, BenQ’s TK800 is the first we’ve seen to nail not only 4K resolution but also the frame rate — some others seem inexplicably unable to deliver 24 frames per second or a direct multiple, resulting in judder. The TK800 avoids that (excepting only 50Hz interlaced material, which is converted to 60fps — but give it 50Hz progressive output and it’s fine), and given it’s also currently one of the least expensive 4K XPR projectors at $2199, we’re delighted to give it this award. As with many of our winners, you can read our full review on avhub.com.au.

JUDGES’ COMMENT “Ultra-HD projection using TI’s clever XPR tech, solving the frame-rate issues, all at an amazing price.”
