20 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Based on four expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, gadgetreview.com, hifitest.de and dgl.ru the average expert rating of this projector is 78 out of 100.

Running Costs Are Very Low

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the GP20 will cost only £45 over 1 year to run, which is in the cheapest 8% of all 102 projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Benq Has Good Data Projector Reviews

Benq projectors have good ratings on average and across all multimedia projectors Benq is one of the better rated brands.

Easy to Use

Some people concluded that the Benq GP20 was easy to use. Globetrottergirl scored the product 4 stars and said “The inbuilt speakers are very handy if not powerful, so I will change that.”. Expert review site Gadgetreview.com said “Digital LED projector has a number of advantages over the more conventional bulb-based model, chief among them being ease of use, near-instant light start-up” in their Benq GP20 review.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who bought it concluded that it had good colour saturation. Globetrottergirl mentioned in their review of the Benq GP20 “For such a tiny thing (it fits on my standard size fireplace mantlepiece) it sure produces a wall full of picture with clear fab colours” .

Good Sound Quality

One Benq GP20 reviewer said in their reviews that this projector had good sound quality.

Good Size

One person wrote in their reviews that it was lightweight. Two years ago Hometheaterhifi.com said “The BenQ GP20 LED projector houses a single DLP chip in a small lightweight chassis barely larger than a hardcover book” in their Benq GP20 review.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Benq GP20 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the GP20 do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors which support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to consider including the Benq GP30[plb_2564760_price].
