BenQ GV30 review | Stuff
Set up is fairly simple. Place it on the stand, hit the power button and you’re good to go. It is powered by Android TV and that’s the first thing that shows up. It’s a neat and clean interface and once you’re logged into your account, you’re ready to play! You can tip the projector up and down on its stand, achieving a 135-degree projection angle. It has auto-focus and auto-keystone which serves up a crisp 100in projection from a distance of about 8.9 feet. The 720p projected image is quite bright at 300 nits, the colours are fairly balanced too and we were really impressed by the GV30’s ability to handle motion as well. It covers 97% of the Rec. 709 colour space! The speaker unit consists of 2x4W tweeters and 1x8W woofer. It is by far the best audio output we’ve heard on a portable projector in ages! There’s enough detail and definition and the bass remains solid and composed! The battery lasts for about 2.5 hours on a single charge, so you’re going to get only one movie out of it realistically. On the app front, there’s Amazon Prime on board along with Hotstar and other 5000+ apps you can find on the Play Store. Netflix isn’t natively available, but there is a way around it via Aptoid which you will need to download after installing the BenQ Apps Manager. It’s a one-time process and worth it.
