BenQ W1080ST (Short Throw)

What is this?

A 'short throw' 3D 1080p projector.

Why did I buy it?

I already owned the BenQ W1070 projector, and this was the same model with a 'short throw' lens. With this magical lens, I could project the same size image, but much closer to the wall. It also comes with a carrying case. Read the W1070 post for my review on the projector itself, for info on the short throw model, keep reading. 

The main difference with this model is the projection size, and due to the lens curvature, you need to trade off between a focused center point, or focused edges. I have found it impossible to have the entire frame in focus, but it isn't so much of a problem given the problem this projector model is trying to solve; and it isn't very noticeable at that. 

It comes with a travel bag, but I didn't really need that so I sold it on eBay for $13, netting $4.42 profit after shipping and expenses.
