    the 5120 is renouned for its compatabilty with gaming so much so that at one time Benq were giving free xbox with the 5120,but this is a dilema I had when I bought my benq problem is they are both good projectors for the money I found that the benq had a more vibrant picture but to be honest its swings and roundabouts as both have there pros and cons.
    Either way you will be happy.

    Good luck Darko:thumbsup:

    Hi.

    I've just purchased a 5120 (from Darko infact):hiya:

    I cannot recommend it highly enough - playing ps2 through component is amazing.

    Only got dvd through s-video at the moment and i still cant get over how cool that looks.

    Uber easy to set up aswell:thumbsup:

    I too Had a Benq 5120 and i have to say for the money it was totally excellent , i had the projector for around 4-5months , i paid 451 inc vat and shipping and ended up selling it for 400.00 when i upgraded to a Z4.

    You won't go wrong with the Benq5120 , but make sure you get a gooood price , i purchased via Ebuyer With no probs etc.

    Hi , i would say they where similar , i find the Z4 a very good projector , i've just bought a 2nd user P.C system and a ati 800 graphics card so i can output from my pc into the hdmi which will give me a sharper picture , i find through the standard vga input from my laptop computer , theres some slight ghosting , but thats where the 1:1 pixel abilitys of hdmi will improve the experince even more........in all honesty though the benq 5120 suited all my needs and to be honest the z4 does more than i need , i did have a hatachi tx200 for a weekend and soon took it back , i found the picture to be a bit soft and when playing the xbox the screen did not look right , even when set in ntsc mode and using a component cable....but the z4 is a great pj and i'm more than pleased and will serve me well for the next 18months , the z4 truely does help to close the gap between lcd and dlp , but i think in 18 months time , DLP maybe the way to go , but time will tell.
