And the BenQ didn’t just excel in terms of its accuracy; the overall picture is equally appealing. Watching The Expanse on Amazon Prime in 4K SDR reveals images that are often spectacular. The projector might not be native 4K, but its XPR trickery results in perceived 4K images that don’t reveal any pixel structure, even when viewed up close.
An orbital assault exposes all the detail in the intricately rendered spaceships and station, while highlighting a DLP strength: smooth and judder-free motion. The sunlight reflecting off the ships’ hulls is suitably bright and the blacks of space are deep enough to leave the dynamic iris off. The projector’s adherence to REC.709 also ensures stable colours and excellent flesh tones.
