A big “thank you” goes out from Projector Reviews to BenQ. By bringing out the HT5550, BenQ has continued what I have always considered to be the best series of projectors in terms of price performance. Most significantly, this BenQ projector is a bright one, and offers better black level performance than any other DLP projector I can think of, anywhere near its price.
And, by bringing back this series we again see a market where one from this series projectors is going up against one from the latest Epson UB series, for overall picture and handling of really dark scenes. “It’s those really dark scenes that separate serious home theater projectors from the run-of-the-mill.”
