BenQ PE5120 Review:

The BenQ PE5120 DLP(tm) home theater projector offers a 2000:1 contrast ratio at 1100 ANSI lumens of brightness, and features DVI-I support with HDCP, S-Video, Composite and Component video inputs. With a native 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 854x480 pixels (WVGA), the PE5120 also features a five-segment color wheel producing a full 16.7-million color palette to ensure excellent color reproduction. The PE5120 includes 3:2 pull-down for optimum reproduction of movies, Progressive-Scan to provide flicker-free images and Digital Keystone Correction capabilities.

The PE5120 home theater projector claims 1100 lumens, making it one of the brightest available (without spending 4x the price or more). Almost all home theater projectors are rated between 500 and 1200 lumens, and all primarily want pretty dark rooms to work in. This one, however, has a little extra umph, making it just a bit more able to handle low ambient light. That should be a real plus for regular TV and HDTV watchers and sports fans, where a near pitch black room is not their first choice. This projector will allow some controlled room lighting, even on a 100" screen, while you watch your favorite football team, etc.

Performance, and simplicity, are the two most noticeable attributes of this DLP projector. Take the 5120 out of the box, plug it in to your source (DVD, HDTV, etc.,) turn it on, and enjoy. There are other good entry level projectors out there, including Epson's Home 10, and InFocus's Screenplay 4805, but none so immediately impressed me as this hot little BenQ model.
