Chart

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq GP3 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Epson 1975W.

1680 X 1050 (WSXGA+) Graphics Resolution

The Benq GP3 supports a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). That's over five times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar age and type to the GP3. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Benq multimedia projector. Projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the GP3 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the GP3 is 28dB and the loudest is 49dB. With a noise level of only 33 decibels, the Benq GP3 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the GP3.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the W1080 (£749.00), and the W1500 both from Benq is also worth considering.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Acer K335 (£390.30) (33dB).

Chart Edit

Very Bright Lamp Power in Economic Mode

The lamp powers in economic mode of projectors that are a comparable age to the GP3 range from 130W to 30,000W, and the average lamp power in economic mode is 2,600W. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the GP3 that we have assessed, the Benq GP3's lamp power in economic mode of 30,000 Watts is one of the brightest.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

At 30,000 hours, the Benq GP3 has a very long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the GP3. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the GP3 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 1,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h.

Chart Edit

Very Big Uniformity

When compared to other data projectors of this age and spec, the Benq GP3's uniformity of 100 percent is one of the biggest. Data projectors of this type and age have uniformities of between 0.9% and 100%, and the average uniformity is 83%.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Lamp Service Life

Across all the projectors of this age and type the lamp service lives range from 500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

At 1,070 million, the Benq GP3 has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the GP3. The lowest number of colours of projectors of this age and spec is 1M and the highest is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Supports Five Video Formats

The Benq GP3 has a greater number of supported video formats than most data projectors of this type and age. The most commonly supported video format is MPEG4, but this video format is not supported by this data projector. The video formats 3G2, 3GP, AVI, MOV and MP4 are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

Across all the projectors of this age and type the widths range from 100mm to 970mm. The Benq GP3 is fairly narrow (only 140.3 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the GP3.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

When compared to other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the GP3 that we have checked, the Benq GP3's projector brightness of only 300 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest. The dimmest projector brightness of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the GP3 is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens.

If you want a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Infocus IN1146 (£510.10) (1,000 ANSI lumens), or the NEC NP-M282 (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq GP3 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the GP10, or the W1500 both from Benq which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq GP3 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might want to look at including the Benq W1500, or the NEC NP-M282.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Benq GP3 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq W1500, or the Epson 1975W which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This data projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Offset

With an offset of only 100 percent, the Benq GP3 has a quite small offset compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the GP3. Projectors of this age and spec have offsets of between 8% and 140%.
