Pros

  • Bright, clear image ideal for boardroom presentations

Cons

  • 4:3 aspect ratio not suited to watching movies

Bottom Line

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.

Would you buy this?

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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
