BenQ X3000i Projector Reviews:

Projector Reviews Comments

I found the color reproduction of X3000i out of the box was very good with the Picture Mode set on Cinema. The out-of-the-box color reproduction was also superb with the projector’s Game Mode set to RPG. Gamers and movie buffs alike are well taken care of when it comes to color reproduction.

The BenQ X3000i is the best 4K gaming projector I have personally tested as of the writing of this review. The X3000i may be for you if you want a gaming projector and a projector for movies and shows. The BenQ X3000i is absolutely fantastic for console gaming, especially if you want to fully immerse yourself in your games.

The X3000i, however, is not a one-trick pony. You could easily switch the X3000i over to Cinema mode with HDR10 and enjoy watching your favorite movies and shows. The DMD Texas Instruments DLP chipset imager does an excellent job reproducing 4K content in HDR and SDR.

Ease of Use
Projector Central Comments

The X3000i can calibrate incredibly well if you chose to do it. There are RGB balance gain and bias settings, and a full CMS for saturation, hue, and luminance of color points.

HDR Viewing. The colors and details throughout the enchanting Rivendell in Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring are gorgeous on the X3000i. The filigree and aging of the Fellowship's armor and clothing feels authentic, and the greens and browns of the surrounding forest are realistic.

Still, even with a few caveats, the BenQ X3000i is a very attractive option for gamers. If you're looking for a 4K HDR projector with a bright, solid-state light engine that never needs a lamp replacement, you can't do better at this price.
