The BenQ W3000 has a brightness of 2600 ANSI lumens with a 260W lamp and a duration of between 2000 and 4000 hours. The brightness is on the higher  end when compared to the other two projectors (the W1110 and the W2000) however, it offers less hours than these models.

The optics permits a greater zoom (1.6x, compared to 1.3x on the W1110 and W2000), and also the lens shift is slightly less limited (12.5% ​​vertically, horizontally 2.5% ).

There is also the Video Enhancer function, which includes the Motion Enhancer (motion compensation), the Color Enhancer, the Pixel Enhancer and Flesh Tone Enhancer. The noise came in at 29dBA which is higher than the 27dBA on the W1110 and W2000 models.

The BenQ W3000 can be equipped with the optional wireless FHD kit, useful for sending streams of audio and uncompressed video in full HD resolution and 3D support. The signal coverage spans 30 meters, even through walls and the kit works with most modern BenQ Projectors.
