With outstanding colours, low input lag, customized game modes, built-in speakers and easy installation, W1210ST expands your gaming world and makes you feel like you're really IN the game!

Off-the-charts colour quality thanks to BenQ CinematicColor™ technology

This technology, developed in-house by BenQ, brings out optimal colours for accurate and enhanced images.

CinematicColor™ technology delivers Rec.709 HDTV colour coverage, 6X speed RGBRGB colour wheel, and high native ANSI contrast ratio to ensure incredible image performance with detailed, sharp, and crisp visuals for your home cinema enjoyment.

6X Speed RGBRGB colour wheel for awesome colour clarity

Of all DLP projector components, the colour wheel has the greatest effect on colour.

Achieving perfect balance between colour accuracy and brightness requires high precision and stringent quality control.

Because even nanometer differences create great differences to colour spectrum, BenQ CinematicColor™ uses precise nanometer-level references to test over 20 combinations of colour wheel angle and coating.

Each colour wheel is carefully fabricated with high-pure-colour coatings to meet Rec. 709 colour gamut requirements and reproduce the true colour of Hollywood films.

Ultra-fast response time for jaw-droppingly smooth gameplay

Response is a crucial criteria for high-performance simulation gaming and the BenQ W1210ST delivers – big time.

In fact, it’s the world’s first gaming projector with super-low, 16.67ms input lag and microsecond DMD pixel response time that hands you super smooth., delay-free gaming.

Whether you’re playing on Xbox, Playstation or PC, you’ll be blown away by the lightning-fast gameplay…especially in time-critical games like iRacing, Assetto Corsa and the like where precise acceleration and braking inputs put you in the lead.

BenQ fast response can even make the difference in making a last-second shot to win the game, putting you into intense heart-pounding action instead of merely playing a game.

Short throw projection means you can use the W1210ST even in the tightest space!

You don’t need a massive amount of space for big screen thrills. The BenQ W1210ST features short throw projection so you only need as little as 1.5m to project stunning 100 inch pictures.

This makes the W1210ST gaming projector perfect if you’re a little short on space. It’s the perfect gaming projector for a standard two car garage or an average sized living or loungeroom (say 5m x 4m).

BenQ SmartEco® technology delivers unmatched image performance

An ingenious solution that intensifies your viewing pleasure while saving money, SmartEco® automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on content to project richer blacks and increase contrast for tiny text and subtle details.

Awesome audio performance from CinemaMaster™ Audio+

Resonant chambers house 20-watt stereo speakers precision tuned by BenQ sound engineers to maximize deep bass and soaring highs – all without wires.

Four pre-set sound modes and an equalizer setting match the music and soundtrack of your choice to immerse you in total entertainment.

Hey there.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.

And we’ll (not so) humbly say there’s lots of reasons we think you should shop with us…and not hand over your hard-earned cash at one of those big box retailers like Harvey Norman or JB Hi-Fi. 

First up, we’ve got a policy here at Gamer Gear Direct we like to call…

100% customer happiness guaranteed (we mean it!)

OK, so the above title might sound a little corny to you, but it’s true. 

We’ll bend over backwards to ensure you are 100% happy and satisfied with everything you buy from us. 

We want you to tell your friends and family about your experience with us (and hopefully that’ll mean they visit our website, too). 

And the only way you’re going to do that is when you’re happy with our service, right?

See, we’re not one of those big box electronics stores with a multi-million marketing budget. Those companies treat you like a number. Because they can afford to! They’ve got money coming out of their ears.

We’re different. We’re a small Aussie business. Every single potential customer that hits our website is precious to us (that includes you). 

So, again, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re over the moon with your Gamer Gear Direct shopping experience.

Do you think Harvey Norman can promise that kind of service? Probably not.

But look, you don’t have to take our word for Here’s what our customers are saying about us…

Ashley Woolnough says: ‘I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5-star service’.

Joe Platt had this to say: ‘Just want to say how awesome the gaming chair is that we bought. Amazing quality, helpful service and the fastest delivery of an online purchase. Arrived Next Day!’

And this from B. Richardson: ‘Purchased an Audeze headset and it arrived inside two days. Thanks for the fast shipping and great service!’

That’s not an exhaustive list, either. There are plenty more happy customer stories we could share with you.

But let’s move on…

Five-star customer support. We’re just an email, phone call or live chat away. We’re here to help you day or night

‘Officially’ we’re around to support you and help you out with your questions and queries between normal business hours (Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm).

But just between us…we’re pretty much here to help you out around the clock, 7 days a week.

We don’t switch off. For example, it’s not unusual for one of our team to be helping a customer with a shipping request at 9pm at night. 

If you need a hand with anything just email us, call (03) 9000 0545 or open the live chat function and we’ll help you in any way we can.

This means if you’re not happy for any reason (and reason at all) you can return your item/s for refund or exchange. And we’ll even cover the return shipping.

That means you can shop with confidence. Again, if for any reason you’re not happy just return your items to us for a refund or exchange.

On top of our 30-day return policy, you’re also covered by a manufacturers warranty. Every product we sell is covered by a minimum 6-month warranty (most are covered by a 1 year or better warranty)

I bought the BenQ TH671ST 1080p Short Throw Projector to use for an outside theater during the Covid-19 pandemic. I also have a home theater which I use a BenQ projector so I have already been impressed by the brand. I am glad I bought this projector! It looks spectacular outside - even with a fair amount of light from the moon and Chicago sky. I like it so much, I will be putting this one in the home theater at the end of the summer. Great projector!

I have this set up on a coffee table in front of the seating area, which gives it around 7 feet to the wall. It produces a very crisp 10 foot picture. Even with some lights on and the blinds open, the picture is reasonably visible (of course it's much better, like a movie theater, when the lights are off). Fan is not too loud although it does produce some heat. I don't use the remote, since the unit is within easy reach on the table. Built in speakers are OK in a pinch but a bit tinny. I set up a Chromecast with an HDMI audio/video splitter rather than use the 3.5mm audio out, but I'm sure that would work fine. Pretty well built but I would not consider it something you'd want to handle a lot, like a portable unit.Overall, I like it a lot! Way more fun than a TV.

I took a chance on this projector and was not disappointed. The picture quality is great; still good even with sunlight coming into the room. I can’t speak to how it looks with gaming though because i don’t have a gaming system. It was super easy to set up, minus the mounting of course. Also, I was surprised at how great the sound quality is. The remote is a bit clunky and seems to have a lot of buttons that I haven’t touched yet. Overall, definitely would recommend!

First i'll say that I buy all kinds of electronics for gaming and movies for 3 rooms in my house with online matches and always do tons of research. So this big purchase had me wiry when ordering because of some of the 1 and 2 star reviews. In the end I took the chance and couldn't be happier. I believe all products made will have some lemons and luckily I didn't get one. Probably less than 5% chance someone would.GAMING- This thing is awesome! Picture is crisp and very good looking. I experienced no lag from the projector. My 75in 4k Sony TV sometimes lags and this doesn't!MOVIES- Movies look very good too. I'm a movie fanatic and love to use my hdr10 on my TV with 4k UHD Dvds for perfect picture. This won't be super bright with extreme blacks and whites but it gets very close. Especially with bluray dvds.STREAMING- Netflix/amazon I stream these through my ps4 and they look great too.SOUND- Considering this is a projector I was actually impressed by the sound. More so for movies than games but both were good. Let's be honest though, why buy a 120in+ projector and screen and not connect a surround system to it? No projector is going to have a good surround on it because it can't. I hooked up a vizeo sound bar + subwoofer and two side speakers and it sounds great. Makes gaming much better.

I was completely surprised at the image size it was able to cast from five to six feet. I Have it on my coffee table shelf and it’s about the size of the whole wall! Use to have to put it 30 feet back to achieve the same result with a normal throw. Didn’t have to adjust my setup but still got the biggest screen. And 1080p native and it shows. PS4 looks great. Modern Warfare on it will make you cry. Immersive. Even during daylight and with the lights on it’s still pretty clear as far as being able to distinguish shadows and colors. Over all its very impressive. No way you’ll be disappointed. I’ve owned two others and this guy blows them away. Fans nothing. Puts out a normal amount of heat. Speakers are hella loud. Mute function available on the backlit remote. Carrying case. Lens cap. Good job BenQ take my money!
