Just my 2 cents - but the HT2050 at this price is an absolute steal if you're looking to get into the projector game. I got mine for this price 2 months ago. I first had mine setup where it was doing a 140" image and had to use vertical keystone of "5" to get it just right, then once i mounted to ceiling permanently it's doing a 120" image now with no keystone correction and it looks unbelievable. Gaming on my PS4 is just a hoot and this brings a whole new experience to movies. I bought a 65" 4k samsung 2 years ago and this absolutely blows that away, it's all about the immersion factor here.

I will say a few tips:
- Avoid using keystone correction at all, it's there if you need it (vertical only for HT2050), but using it vs. not using it DEFINITELY is a noticeable difference in picture quality and experience. When I first had mine setup at 140" with keystone (Sitting on a table), it looked good but going to 120" with no keystone is just so much sharper and no weird edges.

- If you're in a dark room, go with a DLP like this, the contrast advantage these have over the LCD projectors from Epson in this range is significant to notice, contrast is the single most important thing dealing with Picture quality here

- Vertical lens shift makes setting up the project SO MUCH easier

- If you cant darken your room a bit, you might want to consider the cheaper TH670, it's a hybrid business/home theater projector so it gets brighter, but at the sacrifice of picture quality

- Do not waste your money on the HT3050, calibrate the HT2050 (I did with Disney WoW) and there's absolutely no discernible difference between the 2

- Rainbow effect is pretty overblown, I have yet to come across someone who has notice it or complained about with my setup, but the HT2050 is good for DLPs in terms of not having much of a rainbow effect

- Have not watched sports on it yet, but curious to see how it looks with football season looming

I think getting the Keystone features is a godsend if you can't perfectly center the projector. I have the 1075 and have to place it in the corner, so the Keystone feature is of highest importance to me for this.

Looking for a starter projector. Is HT1075 worth the $110 extra over TH670? Both seem to have decent reviews and TH670 is more lumens too. I dont care about it having only 1 hdmi port vs 2. Any reason why I should get 1075 instead of 670?

Thanks I dint know about that. But for my application, I can place it perfectly centered. Is that the only advantage?

Do you know what is their return policy? Epson doesn't do returns only replacement, I wanted to know if Benq is the same?

Can anyone tell me if any of these projectors can receive input at 120hz and display 120hz? The Optoma GT1080 is the only projector I know that for sure supports 720p120

Edit: also if anyone finds a projector that actually supports 1080p/120 let me know I have NEVER seen one.

FYI - If think that there's even the slightest chance that you might ceiling mount this sometime in the future, check it out in the "upside down" orientation during the 30-day return period. I previously purchased a refurbished 1080st and just had it on table for a while. When my living situation changed and I needed to ceiling mount it, I realized that there was a distortion in the image when the projector was upside down. By then it was too late to send it back and no longer covered under warranty.

Regardless, this is a good deal and I'm purchasing a 2150ST to replace that 1080st.

Thanks, do you have link or something which says 30 day refund, I was looking for it, but couldn't find?

Refurbs are hit and miss, do you have any experience buying refurb from Benq? Also they come with only 1 yr warranty Frown

I bought a Benq ht2050 refurb in June. It was working beautifully but the lamp had 150 hrs clocked (normal mode), I also noticed if I am projecting a black screen with few white dots, the dots were leaking over black (might be why it was refurbished). I returned the projector within 30 days, so got full refund. They take a week after RMA to inspect and process refund.

Good thing there was a deal on new HT2050 at Frys for $599, so bit that.
