The HT1085ST model, like the other BenQ projectors, is colorific- offering crisp- clear detail, sharp blacks and whites, realistic and long-lasting color with no fading over time. BenQ projectors were the most popular home theater projectors in US and Canada for good reasons, main reason being the realistic and natural colours- razor sharp imaging with the 2200 ANSI lumens and 10k:1 contrast ratio. Flexible zoom feature gives you the extra installation freedom.

BenQ HT1085ST weighs 6.3 pounds and has the dimensions of 12.2 x 9.6 x 4.1 inches so it is a fairly compact and lightweight unit and looks quite nice and modern. You can use it in any media room, family room or home theater easily and experience picture twice the size of a big screen TV. It can be put on a coffee table in the middle of your living room to watch anything on a spare wall or can be mounted near a screen and it will fill a 100 inch screen from even less than 5 feet away with the unique industry leader short-throw lens technology, giving you placement and installation flexibility- so no space limitations or shadow disruptions. So your living area becomes an entertainment center for videos, movies and console gaming easily. And you will also have enough space for your motion sensing video games.

The integrated 10 watt chamber speakers will deliver rich and immersive audio that fills a room right from the projector. This is ideal for situations where dedicated sound systems are not practical such as when you use it as a game room or bedroom. You have an equalizier setting and 4 preset sound modes for the best possible audio. BenQ Projector is quite easy to set-up as it comes with vertical lens shift that lets you perfectly adjust the image exactly in the center of the screen and if you need to move the projector off to the side of the screen, its new vertical and horizontal 2D keystone adjusts the image if you’re having a hard time clearing up space on your table to deliver a great looking picture with the single press of a button. So this will correct the trapezoid effect with the projector put off center, so you can comfortably put the projector on a side table or an unused corner.
