BenQ EH600 Review

March 2, 2020

A smart business projector that does everything.

We’ve tested multiple BenQ projectors over the years, but they were mostly made for home viewing. With the EH600 however, it’s focused more for business users evident by the compact size and the built-in Android operating system that lets you share documents and spreadsheets and even view presentations without the need for a computer.

The EH600 is compact and portable, making it easy to install either permanently inside a conference room or inside a classroom. Looks-wise, it doesn’t look that much different from other projectors. The EH600 features a 200-watt lamp that creates a native Full HD (1920-by-1080) image. Brightness maxes out at 3,500 Lumens, bright enough to see presentations even when the light is on. Images retain their color brilliance, while the text is sharp and is easily readable.

You’ll find the normal zoom and focus rings at the front along with the input panel at the rear. There’s a single HDMI 1.4a port, VGA-in/VGA-out, two USB-A ports, and two 3.5 mm audio jacks used for input and output. The EH600 doesn’t have an Ethernet port, but it does include a USB Wi-Fi dongle that lets you go online. Lastly, there’s a Bluetooth receiver on the EH600 that I’ve used to connect a wireless keyboard and mouse.

The control buttons are located at the top, with six buttons that surround the navigation pad. While it’s good that most of the basic functions are already on the projector, I still prefer using the included remote control that houses more functions including a laser that you can use for presentations.

Inside the EH600, there’s an Android-based computer (running Android 6.0) with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, similar to the specs of an entry-level tablet. Despite those specifications, the EH600 loaded up the interface in a fast and snappy way. It’s easy to navigate and most of the options are clear and easy to understand.

Since it runs Android, you can also install apps Firefox or TeamViewer and of course, open a plethora of different files from documents to images to video whether it is coming from a USB drive or from a browser. The EH600 reads them without a hitch, which makes it a fitting addition to any business setup.

One thing we also loved about the EH600 is support for smartphone mirroring. With support for Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay, you can easily mirror the contents of your iPhone or Android device on the EH600 without having to purchase additional accessories. Did we mention the mirroring happens wirelessly? Yes, that means no more wires as well.

It’s fairly easy to operate even when it comes to an operating system and it does show the convenience that you can get by simply bringing a USB drive for a presentation instead of a laptop. The BenQ EH600’s smart projector features solve all of those worries.

We Love: 

+ Built-in Android OS makes it easier to operate

+ Includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections

+ Lightweight

We Hate: 

– One HDMI port may not be enough

Final Rating: 4/5
