Fast and Bright 

The BenQ TH585 is constructed around a single 1,920-by-1,200-pixel DLP chip. The good news is that it makes use of only 1,920 by 1,080 pixels.

This gives the TH585 a 1080p native resolution. The project can pair its chip with a six-segment, RGBWYC (red-green-blue-white-yellow-cyan) color wheel. 

What does this mean? The yellow segments allow the TH585 to produce a more vibrant and brighter yellow.

The white segment allows the projector to produce a brighter image. However, the built-in sound system might not be great.

Although the projector is onboard, mono 10-watt speaker offers decent quality and the peak volume is disappointing.

 For a small space, the BenQ TH585 is suitable, but if you want an amazing game experience, connect to an external sound speaker to it.

Setting Up the BenQ TH585

Assessing the TH585 Brightness

The BenQ TH585 has a rated 3,500 lumens that are bright enough for a 270-inch-diagonal, 16:9 image.

For those who want a solid pick for their gaming, the project is an ideal choice. In ambient light, the TH585 is exceptional and can serve your space.
