Projectors provide up the type of cinematic experience that a standard LCD screen can’t quite replicate — that is the easy on the eyes reflective caliber of sitting in a darkened movie theater. At the age of 4K TVs, it’s no secret that 4K projectors aren’t exactly affordable. Looking in a TV’s 65-inches or bigger and the narrative is the same, but cramming all those pixels onto a projector’s panel is quite the effort. BenQ’s most current 4K projector — the gaming concentrated BenQ TK700STi — isn’t only reasonably priced but offers up low input latency to boot up.
With its $2595 price-point (now being sold exclusively via JB Hi-Fi), the BenQ TK700STi Short Throw 4K Gaming Projector comes with a genuine 4K (3840×2160) image at 60Hz with a low input of 16.67ms.
Fundamentally, it is on par with a display built for gaming. Case in point, the 4ms in 1080p 240Hz implies you can essentially play competitive CS: GO or Rainbow Six Siege about the BenQ TK700STi without skipping a beat.
“The TK700STi is currently altering the gaming experience with unmatched audiovisuals and outstanding response time,” explained Martin Moelle, Managing Director of BenQ Australia and New Zealand. “Today, gamers can enjoy the fastest gameplay with magnificent 4K visuals on a 120-inch screen for the most immersive adventure.”
Designed with consoles and PC gaming in your mind, from PlayStation 5 to Xbox collection X and even the Nintendo Alter, the TK700STi doubles as a 4K theater (it comprises a built-in Android TV). It supports HDR10 and the newest HLG standard, comes outfitted with a 3000 ANSI Lumens lamp so that it’ll work in rooms with ambient light, and even manages to cover 96% of their Rec.709 color space. In addition to incorporating a, few presets tuned for specific kinds of games — FPS, RPG, and Sport.
Throw in its own, err, short-throw capacities for ease of setup — and keystone functions and the ability to create a crisp 100-inch picture from approximately 6ft off — and the $2595 price-point starts to sound very tempting.
