    "While the BenQ W1070 is a great projector, there's one big problem with it. I wanted a short throw projector, and this isn't one. The brand has other short throw projectors, but this product disappointed me because it wasn't what I needed."

    "Really really FUN! We love using this for summer family fun nights. A little BBQ and a movie under the stars makes for a super fun night and cool memories. It's affordable and great projection. Please note you do need to take care to project away from any extra outside light. You do need a dark area."

    "This projector is 'fine' but nothing more. I'll honest, it does exactly what it says it will do so I can't fault them on that but I wish I bothered to shop around more because for very little more I could have bought a much better one. If you can find it on sale for around $50 it's worth it but for any more you can do better."
