    I'd use this with a SCART-HDMI convertor box with my old Amstrad GX4000 games console.

    Re: Forum Exclusive: Win 1 of 5 BenQ W1210ST projectors

    I buy a lot of BenQ projectors (as well as mainly use their monitors) for work. Been very happy with them over the last nine or so years of buying them - also had good experiences with their returns and warranty claims. One of these would go nicely in my new place, running with my PS One, PS2, PS3, PS4 and PC

    Certainly an upgrade to the £40 one we've currently got. Mostly for Chromecasting as it's not in the living room, but I'm sure I'd hook up the PC for some huge gaming fun

    I'd plug in my SteamLink and use it to make a ludicrous setup in my Living room.

    I'd be tempted to hook it up to the HDMI switch in the bedroom (PS3/4/XB360) - playing games whilst lying in bed on a 100" screen... sounds good to me!

    Definitely PC, as the last console I had only played Pong.

    Definitely could make good use of this, not sure if I'd use it for living room use for PS4 Pro or use it for PC gaming in my office

    Re: Forum Exclusive: Win 1 of 5 BenQ W1210ST projectors

    With 2 HDMI inputs, I'd have to keep my HTPC hooked up to one of them - to sit back and chill with some Buffy or Yes Prime Minister!

    The other would probably have to be "free floating" for the XBox One and the Wii, although I think what I'd most look forward to doing would be hooking up my JXD S5110b, loading a NES emulator, and playing NES Elite on a 100" screen - that'd be amazing!

    I would use this with my desktop to do some Rainbow 6 Siege on a well... very large screen. I'd also test out the Amazon Fire Box on it and watch some (downscaled) 4k!
