  4. Review: BenQ GS1 Portable LED Projector by Kelly Ainslie | Sep 29, 2017 Why the BenQ GS1? Well, compared to what I was doing 2 years ago, the new BenQ GS1 is an amazing piece of kit, not just its size but how easily and how many different methods to watch content; from wireless streaming, direct HDMI and memory sticks and/or cards. Let me paint a mental picture; I started to take a data projector camping to have “movie nights under the stars” with our camping buddies, as this would be fun and good entertainment for the group while we camped in the middle of central Australia away from internet and mobile phones. This sounds simple enough, but when you break down what needed to happen, it actually wasn’t as easy as it seems. I needed to: 1. Power the 240VAC 200W projector for at least 2 hours; I have a 1600 watt inverter in my camper and 240 A/H of Lithium batteries, not everyone has this. 2. The old projector had speakers but not very loud so I need to make them louder, there wasn’t a headphone output jack and I typically use my Apple TV as a media player because I either use my iPad or laptop. So I turned to eBay and purchased $15 HDMI / audio splitter, it passed through the HDMI and had a 2.5mm stereo plug out, then I needed a few HDMI cables to patch in the HDMI audio splitter and a male to male 2.5mm stereo lead to take the audio to an external speaker. 3. Provide a movie source, as I said earlier I would typically use an Apple TV to display from my iPad or Laptop as both didn’t have HDMI out, I would setup a hotspot network on my phone and wirelessly stream* the media….. 4. Having some way of propping up the projector to keep it and everything else out of the dirt which was normally the box that I kept the projector in, balanced precariously on my small foot step from the back of the 4WD. Old Setup: So many cables! This all works to some degree of success but it was cumbersome to transport and needed a bit of time to setup and put away after the movie. So I hit the web to see what was out there in battery powered, LED, Wireless projectors and BAM! BenQ have made it, it was an OMG moment. I had to have it, it was early 2017 and I wasn’t available in Australia yet so I had to make do with the old setup for 6 more months. After being in regular contact with BenQ it finally hit the shelves in late July/August. My first impressions when I received the GS1 was that the packaging was basic but strong; a simple unbleached brown box with minimal packing and plastic (which I thought was really good as companies tend to over pack their products in so much plastic that is ultimately thrown into landfills) with the projector inside the padded black travel case and well protected. The overall build quality was great and felt strong and the included accessories were good too, it came with the padded bag, an IR remote, HDMI cable, silicone cover, slide on external battery, power pack/charger, small metal threaded insert (I’ll come back to this) and the instruction manual. The connection ports that could be seen were a Micro SD reader, HDMI, USB 2, USB 3 and from the manual says it has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi which I later found it supported DLNA, Miracast and Airplay* to some degree via apps as it is a full Android mobile operating system, WOW! Setup and configuring was simple, I just slide on the battery pack, slipped it in to the silicone boot and pressed the power button and it fired up to the setup screens that stepped me through the usual stuff like country, language, Wi-Fi network etc. Navigation was simple with the IR remote; it was like using an Apple TV with onscreen keyboard to click each letter at a time. Since it has Bluetooth I quickly found the BT setup menu and I connected a keyboard with track pad and from there it was a snap to navigate and enter info, search the web. The HDMI connection worked as expected and during my testing I trialled direct connecting from Surface Pro3, iPhone/iPad via apple HDMI adapter, Surface Pro via wireless HDMI adapter and my modified 12VDC powered Apple TV using an Ad-HOC Wi-Fi network and they all worked fine. I discovered the app store and downloaded VLC player and Kodi, with these apps I could attach a wireless HDD and my Surface Pro as a server and stream directly to the GS1, and it was awesome. I did find Kodi worked better than VLC player. Having access to apps I’m sure there are others for wireless media platforms* I also downloaded an MP4 movie to a micro SDHC card and USB stick both options work perfectly too. My preference was the Micro SD card as it didn’t stick out and potentially break off if knocked. The audio was ok, for the 2 x 2watt speakers in a small room, tent or caravan it would be fine, for open air it needed a bit more punch and the Bluetooth connectivity was just the trick, I paired it with my Bose mini soundLink and boom the movie came alive. I was keen to trial the tripod setup shown on the web and this wasn’t as good as all the other features so far. To mount the projector with the battery installed you need to use this threaded insert and slide it into a keyway slot on the bottom of the battery but it stayed proud of the battery so the projector wouldn’t sit properly on the QR plate and flopped around. Basically to get the projector to sit flat and firm I had to cut and drill a piece of plastic to make a spacer. This worked really well but makes me wonder if this was an after-thought! The projector is designed to be used with the battery but there is no permanent tripod screw, whereas the projector itself does have a permanent tripod screw. New BenQ setup: No cables! There were a few little things that I think need to be addressed for the second version and will most likely be a natural path, so I don’t want to discourage anyone thinking of this unit. Improvements: Micro SDXC support, at the time I tested the GS1 I used a 32gb Micro SDHC card which worked fine, I also tried a 128gb Micro SDXC card that I had permanently inserted in my SurfacePro3 which is where I store my movie content, the GS1 didn’t recognise it. Maybe next release version or firmware update? A battery switch physically to turn the power off to the GS1; if the GS1 projector and battery stayed connected together the unit could only be put into standby (not fully off) and in theory if you bumped the standby button on top on the unit would cause it to start-up, possibly in the travel case and run flat. A permanent and flush tripod screw mount built-in/moulded into the base of the battery. (This was my biggest and most annoying issue with the projector) Dual Bluetooth speaker support, this is not a problem but a wish list item. Presently you can only connect 1 pair of Bluetooth headphones. My thoughts are as a couple, the two of you may want to use the projector with headphones while camping or caravanning, because you don’t want to annoy the surrounding campers with explosions from the movie sound track. Sure you could use the wired headphone output through a splitter but then we are going back the bad old days. Another benefit of dual Bluetooth would be when having a large group movie night multiple BT speakers spread around the group would be awesome. Just an idea ;). In summary the projector is very awesome (accept for the battery tripod screw thing), it was simple to use with all of the modern connection methods one would want, plus it had the added advantage of apps because of the Android OS. I would totally recommend this product in its current version as it there isn’t anything that has these features, quality and convenience for the price. I would rate it at 4.5 thumbs up and/or 90%, this allows BenQ room to improve. *Airplay support by 3rd party Apps

  7. Selling my Samsung 40" Series 6 LED TV due to upgrade. Model UA40C6900. Has been working flawlessly over the years and it has seen very little usage as I don't watch much TV at all, only a bluray here and there. It has been professionally calibrated by Avical Australia (http://www.avical.com.au/) so you know you're getting the utmost best picture quality. This calibration cost $400 and trust me, it was worth every cent. Comes with remote, detailed calibration report and ultra-slim wall mount kit (similar to this: http://www.samsung.com/us/televisions-home-theater/television-home-theater-accessories/televisions/ultra-slim-wall-mount-wmn3000bx-za/). I think I have a spare HDMI cable floating around somewhere which I'll also include. Looking for $500 Pickup from 3072

  10. Lighting up your turntable! How do you do yours? I love Clear Audio Turntables, especially the clear platter versions. I have the Clear Audio Emotion SE and recently saw a picture of a McIntosh MT5 turntable, glowing gama ray green and I loved it. So I decided to try something similar on mine. A trip to Bunnings got me a LED strip light and i fixed it in a rudimentary fashion on the back of the red base ( a combination of velcro and bluetack ) . The LED’s have their own power (plug) and two on/off switches, one that sits on the light strip. Although very basic (you can buy much more sophisticated kit now), it illuminates well and adds a certain ambience, especially with red vinyl. Any more pictures/ideas would be great to share. Cheers!
  11. Hi, I was looking at upgrading my old 32" Samsung LCD and was after some advice and this seems like an excellent place to get some. I narrowed it down to the LED range and most likely around the 40" – 42" size. I could push it to 55" but I tend to sit relatively close to the TV so that's probably too big for my lounge. I am however happy to hear advice in the 50"+ range too. The Sony W800A and Samsung F6400 seem good. JB have the F6700 which confused me a bit as it looks like the F7100 series which only come in 46" and above from what I saw on their site. So I assume it's the F6400 with a different case. The Sony apparently has really good input lag (or lack thereof). While I'd mainly be using it for gaming, I'm after something that also has great image quality, colors and good contrast. 3D and internet is really not important. What would you guys suggest? Any models you have that you've been happy with? Sony W800A Lowest input lag which is great for gaming. 2" bigger than the Samsung counterpart. Good color reproduction. Downside is that I noticed some flicker on some scenes that the Samsung didn't have. Samsung F6400/6700 These seem like the same panel to me but the 6700 is apparently a JB exclusive and looks like the 6400 internals on a 7100 case. Colors were nice. Higher input lag than Samsung. Panasonic ET60A Nice colors and decent TV but apparently has some contrast issues and input lag problems. Also came across this which I'm dubious of but found interesting:
  12. Hi All, Am looking for a new screen to replace the old (but very good) Hitachi 42" Plasma. It has a big red line running top to bottom down the right hand side! We have a Samsung 42" LCD in our bedroom and it is very good, and connected immediately to our Western Digital Wireless HDD, allowing us to playing movies directly from it. As I watch a lot of sport, I was simply going to look for a 55-60" LCD with 200Hz (as I can see a tail on the ball on the 100Hz LCD we have), and it was probably going to be a Samsung, as I have had only good experiences getting ours and a few for other family members. I have just read people's views on the Samsung PN64F8500, and am still struggling in my head that Plasma's are "old school". I guess they are not. As I narrow my search, I would interested in people's opinions on what is around now (in the sales) at the $2,000 to $3,500 range, at about the 60" size (4m+ viewing distance), and that would have wi-fi capability to connect onto the home network. Thanks in advance for your helpful advice, tips, and debate....once again! Nathan
  13. The new 75" Series 9 LED has been pushed to Samsung's AU domain. Wrapped in 7.9mm of rose gold, it should hit retailers in the next few weeks, for a suggested $9,499.
