BenQ, a renowned name in the world of projectors, has expanded its X gaming series with the introduction of the compact and feature-rich BenQ X300G gaming projector. Following the success of last year's X3100i, BenQ has taken a more compact approach, making gaming on the big screen more accessible than ever before.

The BenQ X300G gaming projector, weighing in at a mere 3 kilograms (8.8 pounds), offers gamers a portable option for immersive gaming experiences. Its compact dimensions, measuring 212 x 180.9 x 194.8 mm (8.3 x 7.1 x 7.6 inches), make it easy to move from room to room. However, it's important to note that the X300G requires a mains outlet for power, as it does not include a built-in battery.

The X300G features 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) projection capabilities, delivering sharp and detailed visuals for gaming enthusiasts. The projector boasts a 0.69:1 to 0.83:1 throw ratio, allowing for up to 120-inch diagonal visuals from a distance of just 1.83 meters (6 feet) from the display surface.

Equipped with a DLP projection engine and a 3LED light source, the X300G shines with a peak brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens. This brightness level enables daytime gaming in partially shaded rooms, although optimal results are achieved in darker environments. According to the company, the projector impressively covers 84% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 95% of the Rec.709 color space, offering gamers accurate and vibrant colors.

In an effort to enhance the gaming experience further, BenQ has implemented a 4.16 ms input lag at 1080p/240-Hz or 16.7 ms at 4K/60-Hz, promising responsive on-screen action. Gamers will undoubtedly appreciate the projector's automatic identification of Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch inputs, as well as various game modes tailored to different gaming genres.

The X300G gaming projector also incorporates advanced features such as HDR tone mapping and SSI Dynamic Black technology, which should have accurate colors and dynamic contrast in gameplay. Moreover, the projector offers a versatile keystone adjustment capability, with 40 degrees of rotation in addition to vertical and horizontal adjustments, granting users more flexibility in projector placement.

In terms of connectivity, the BenQ X300G gaming projector doesn't disappoint, featuring two HDMI ports (with audio return), USB Type-A and Type-C (with DisplayPort support), Bluetooth 5.0, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The inclusion of an Android TV dongle adds to its versatility, enabling users to access various streaming platforms, including Netflix. The projector even comes with built-in 8-watt speakers and a passive radiator, equipped with spatial audio support for an immersive audio experience.
