BenQ V5000i Triple-Laser 4K UST + 100" Fresnel Screen
It appears that BenQ listens and responds favorably to the feedback of their customers with requested feature improvements, and also seeks to differentiate themselves from other UST projector manufacturers on the market with their level of service.
The big knock against their previous V7050i single-laser 4K ultra short throw projector was its really poor specification of 83.34ms (1080p@60Hz) for input lag, making it a horrible choice for most hardcore gamers. But they have flipped the script entirely with the improved ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) capability on their new for 2023 BenQ V5000i triple-laser 4K UST projector [manufacturer’s link]! Published input lag specs and refresh rates are as follows. 4K@60Hz: 17.9ms / 1080p@60Hz: 17.9ms / 1080p@120Hz: 21.2ms / 1080p@240Hz: 8.7ms
The other big difference with the new V5000i UST projector is that it is designed to be used and set up with a 100″ diagonal ambient light rejecting screen, specifically their own included SNS21 100″ Fresnel projection screen with peak gain of 1.4 and a 90° viewing angle. This screen rejects ambient light from above the screen and both sides, making it a perfect solution for either daytime viewing in a brighter room such as a living room, or cinematic viewing in a darker, light-controlled room or dedicated home theater. Best of all, your purchase of the BenQ V5000i UST projector and SNS21 100″ Fresnel ALR screen INCLUDES PROFESSIONAL HOME INSTALLATION by BenQ’s ISF and THX-certified engineers!
