BenQ HT3550 Projector: Vivid Picture Quality and Seamless Adjustment

BenQ HT3550

The BenQ HT3550 projector provides an opportunity to enjoy the multimedia in 4K format with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. The device is good a one for a night movie show in the backyard or even a business showcase demonstration. It is a really good option since it is small (14.9 x 5 x 10.3 inches), lightweight (9.3 pounds), reproduces a bright image and has inbuilt stereo speakers (10W). The manufacturer enhanced the projector with a 3-year limited warranty, so check out the BenQ HT3550 review and make sure it meets your requirements.

Design

The projector has a traditional design with a lens offset to the right edge of the front side. The lens hole has a square shape, covered by a partition about a third below, which prevents excess light from entering the room during ceiling mounting. Despite the rather soiled color, there are no fingerprints left on the projector; the user can clean its surface in a case of need using a damp cloth. All the manual controllers are placed on the top of the projector; you can control its program support and lens peculiarities. There is a connection point on the rear side of the BenQ HT3550 4K UHD projector. Here you can find 2 HDMI ports that support HDCP 2.2, as well as an audio output, a USB 3.0 port for a media reader, and a classic USB port for streaming units excitation. The projector comes with a remote control that is easy to control not only due to the minimal number of buttons but also because of the backlighting. You can find power controls and several image settings at the top of the remote control.

Features

The projector is able to produce brightness up to 2000 lumens. It’s better to create the home theater conditions in the room but a little light will not spoil the experience of use and will not make the picture dimmer. The HT3550 BenQ provides a 30000:1 contrast ratio and the result is a high-dynamic image. Although blacks are not as deep as, let us say, on an OLED TV has, but the balance between blacks and whites allows a decent level of contrast getting. The projector supports 1080p 3D and the HDR standard Hybrid Log Gamma for streaming services and TV broadcasts. Special 4K Motion Enhancer mode performs frame interpolation, but it is disabled by default.

Performance

The manufacturer supplemented its product with calibrated color accuracy, so there’s no need to perform such a procedure manually. It’s better to install the BenQ HT3550 on a small desk, thus, you’ll get a possibility to get a fully balanced image. The device’s wide brightness range at various settings makes it suitable for a large range of screen sizes and background lighting levels. There are a lot of various picture modes, so the user has the possibility to choose the best option, which suits a specific situation (a movie watching in a home theater, the presentation demonstration in a class, etc.). The device sounds rather loud, especially in small rooms. Pay attention that the unit’s fan makes some noise, but it is not too loud, it is easy to forget about it when using the speakers actively. I definitely like that movies at a frame rate of 24 are displayed correctly with optimal frequency conversion, reducing unwanted vibration.
