BenQ Australia PB6110
- Bright, clear image ideal for boardroom presentations
- 4:3 aspect ratio not suited to watching movies
BenQ's PB-6110 projector offers high brightness and contrast levels, and while it offers good all-round performance, the 4:3 aspect ratio makes it better for presentations than watching movies.
Price$ 1,599.00 (AUD)
BenQ's diminutive black PB6110 projector is designed to fill a range of functions. It measures 26 x 10 x 22 cm and weighs in at 2.7kg, and is designed for portability; BenQ has even included a carry bag in the packaging.
The machine will accept a wide range of inputs, including component, VGA, composite and S-Video. It also offers a single VGA output that can be used as a pass-through. A USB connector is also present along with an audio jack, but the 1W speaker isn't much use for watching movies. The unit runs natively at SVGA resolution (800 x 600 pixels) and can scale HDTV content to fit the screen dimensions.
DLP projectors tend to offer a superior contrast ratio to their LCD brethren, and the PB6110 produces excellent images with outstanding colour saturation.
The lamp offers a maximum output of 1500 ANSI lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. It also manages to output a 60" image from a range of 2m thanks to a wide-angle lens that runs natively in a 4:3 aspect ratio. It's fine for brightly lit boardrooms and eight preset modes mean that you can drop the screen brightness adequately for a darkened home theatre environment.
BenQ includes a technology called DCMS (Dynamic Colour Management System), which dynamically controls the light and colour output by the DLP wheel to accurately reproduce colours and shades. It works effectively, and the PB6110 offers a clear, vibrant image that shines for DVD playback. Presets are also available to adjust the display for presentations, gaming, watching movies or to save power.
The BenQ ships with a small remote control that drives screen functions and offers basic image adjustment. Vertical keystone correction is provided, and the automatic setting feature does a good job of quickly tweaking the display to suit the input source, though we found it tended to err on the side of being a touch too bright.
While it offers great all-round performance, the 4:3 aspect ratio makes it better suited for the boardroom than the lounge room.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
