This middle-class home theater projector combines the simple design and standard features with the high-class Full HD and UHD picture, boosted with vivid natural colors that don’t wash out in the well-lit room. The projector features several picture modes and various connections. While it doesn’t have a keystone alignment, the zoom is functional and the image is crisp in various settings. The operation and installation of the BenQ TK800 are simple, with multiple mounting options supported.
Design is an important part of the BenQ TK800 review. The projector is compact (13.90 x 10.70 x 5.30 inches) and lightweight at 9.26 lbs and can be easily mounted to various surfaces including the wall, ceiling, tabletop mounting, etc. This model differs from other BenQ projectors with the stylish colored front panel. The three rubberized feet ensure the stable position of the unit on the desk, shelf, or another surface. The back panel features the intuitive focus dial, the zoom switch, and the low profile navigation buttons. There are also indicators showing the current state of the lamp and temperature.
The TK800 BenQ projector is based on the DLP matrix and features the high brightness of 3,000 lumens. Its native resolution is 1080p, while it also supports the 4K, HDR10, and 3D formats. The throw ratio makes 100 inches at 10.67ft providing for the crisp high-contrast picture in both middle and large rooms.
The connectivity panel is diverse featuring two HDMI ports, the 1.4 version, and 2.2 version for 4K/HDR passthrough. The Blu-Ray player can be hooked up, as the unit also supports the Blu Ray 4K format. There is the VGA port for PC connection and audio inputs and outputs ensuring the connection of the soundbar, AV receiver, or direct speaker. The integrated speaker of the BenQ TK800 4K is the mono type rated at 5W.
The capable processor in this home theater projector produces a contrast sharp picture at 8.3 mln pixels and the sufficient HDR support. High luminosity ensures bright colors and textured shades with plenty of detail even in the room with the open windows, at daylight. The incorporated five picture modes provide preset fields used for various content and ambient light, with the Vivid one being the one for the lit rooms. The only negative is a partial override of luminosity at peaks, which is apparent only in the dark room, where the Cinema mode is more efficient.
The BenQ TK800 4K UHD HDR home theater projector covers a wide color gamut with multiple shades and tints. The contrast ratio is high and the image looks balanced and natural. The 4K resolution looks crisp and the highlights are very accurate.
The sound in this model is rather ordinary, with just enough volume and quality to hear what’s going on. For the complete impression, the powerful surround set is required.
