Alf, 7pm is too late for me...I've noticed that you moved the timing quite a few times from 5.30pm to 7pm and I am fine with that but 7pm is a bit too late for me as I need to rush to somewhere else. So I'll probably skip this demo session. Next time perhaps...I'm sure it will be a great sharing session among the rest of the XP members.


Have fun guys!  :)

Hi Alf,

Thanks again for setting up this session. 7pm is too late for me, I can't make it for the session at this time too.
I suggest timing in noon or late noon will be good for future sessions.

Ok, I will try to make it but it will be kind of rush for me... :)

Agreed with Kaydee6, during weekends, family time is quite precious for most members here...only during mid day - 12pm - 5pm will be a more ideal time slot for most.

Thanks Alf for being a wonderful host and providing some delicious food. It was an interesting session... if one stayed to the end.

Alf had two Benq projectors to display. The first one was a HUGE 2-year old model. Fed the latest Avengers Infinity War 4K Blu Ray in a room with a shiny wood floor and a brightly-lit EXIT sign, and projected to a large 135 inch screen, the picture was very washed out and dull, and skin tones were off, which led Desray to start fiddling with the adjustments and Francis saying that it couldn't compare to his LCD TV ;D I was scratching my head because the picture was dim, lacked contrast and wasn't much better than my Sony HW40 which has a badly damaged light engine! Furthermore, the price was $7K+ the price of a pretty decent 4K projector these days. But little did we know that Alf had a trick up his sleeve  ;D ;D ;D

After seeing the first projector, Alf led the slightly disillusioned crowd to the next room, which was light controlled, where there was a tiny projector (about 1/5th the size of the previous one) projecting a 1080p war movie onto a 100 inch screen. Quality was pretty typical for a current generation single chip DLP projector. Skin tones were fine, but blacks were OK, but no where close to JVC or even Sony's SXRD series.

We watched the war movie for awhile, then Alf revealed his little secret for the night.  ;D ;D The tiny projector was actually BenQ's latest 4K DLP projector (to be released soon) and cost.... S$2,699. He hooked it up to the 4K Blu Ray player and BOOM, it transformed the 100 inch screen to a nice, contrasty, sharp 4K movie display. I was impressed. Cheap 4K has come a long way. For S$2,699 and a large white wall (best to get one of Alf's Cyrus screens though) you can get a sharp contrasty HDR picture, that would cost you about S$30,000+ if you bought a TV. The only way previously to get a decent 4K projector at this price was to ship one via Amazon to Singapore and have no warranty. At S$2,699, we finally have a good low priced local set that has full warranty and support. It's reasonably bright and should be able to handle about 120 inches or so in a reasonably light controlled room by my guesstimate. I'm sure BenQ will sell a truckload of these.

On another note, it was nice seeing Desray and Jag again after about 15 years. It was really hard recognizing them after all this time and I hope to catch up in the not too distant future.

Tks Alf for hosting the demo. Nice to meet up with old and new  Xtremeplace members!
The new BenQ DLP 4k / HDR / P3 / Full Glass lens under SDG $ 2.5k is pretty good! Overall nice color tone and natural looking.

Hopefully Darren from BenQ have a great time mingling with the XP members...hopefully he can help to bring back some of my feedback to the engineering team of BenQ for their flagship model.

Unfortunately I did not stay on for the 2nd demo...Is it confirm that the 2nd BenQ projector is indeed using full "glass lens"? If true, then the sub-$3K price is definitely a good buy. Well done BenQ!
