BenQ X3100i projector receipt for future testing
It only took 7 days between the announcement of its release and the arrival of the new BenQ X3100i at my home. This is a great exclusivity because the successor to the X3000i will only be available for sale during the month of November 2023 at a price just under €2,400.
