BenQ projector loses weight and wires

If you’re looking for an ultra-portable, wireless projector, but aren’t looking in BenQ’s direction, then you’re looking in the wrong direction.

The BenQ CP120 has a built-in Wi-Fi receiver, yet weighs only 1.3kg. Its 218x172x61mm dimensions might cause you to gasp in wonderment.

BenQ has thoughtfully provided its own software to set up a wireless connection, making the whole process one of only a few minutes. It’s compatible with 802.11a, b and g wireless kit, although it’s worth bearing in mind that even 54MBps networks don’t handle animations or movies very well. The D-SUB or S-Video connections would be better for them.

While you’re bearing that in mind, clear a little space and bear this in mind also. The CP120 has a native resolution of 1024x768 pixels, so isn’t going to be your Lord of the Rings Extended Edition marathon weapon. But, with a contrast ratio of 2000:1, and 1500 ANSI lumens it’ll do medium-level movie watching very nicely.

Before we march stoically into the traditional price and website closing sentence, there’s one more thing to talk about. The CP120 has a funky Auto Keystone function, which will automatically correct for picture squeezing created as a result of the shooting angle of the projector. Normally a laborious button-stabbing operation, this is going to make you look a lot cooler when setting up.

And now, that final sentence: the BenQ CP120 has a RRP of £1050, and more info about it can be found at www.benq.co.uk.

(Remember to stop bearing those earlier facts in mind – you’ll give yourself a headache.)
