15 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The GP30 is one of the cheapest to run projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the GP30 will cost only £31 over 1 year to run.

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

Benq is one of the better rated data projector brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Benq also has good reviews for its projectors.

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Benq GP30 supports WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support WiFi connectivity.

Alternative data projectors which support WiFi connectivity currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper projector such as the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the GP30 which do not have a built-in speaker, the Benq GP30 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price], or the Optoma GT1070[plb_2503383_price] which has better reviews; or the Optoma HD151[plb_2591351_price] which is cheaper.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Benq GP30 supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Optoma HD151[plb_2591351_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price], or the Optoma GT1070[plb_2503383_price] which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Benq GP30 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the GP30. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Benq projector. In addition, this multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800. Projectors of a similar age and spec to the GP30 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The average service life of lamp in economic mode of projectors of this age and spec is 6,900h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 2,000h to 30,000h. When compared to other projectors of this age and spec that we have assessed, the service life of lamp in economic mode of the Benq GP30 of 30,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of projectors of this age and spec is 1,500h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 7,900h. At 20,000 hours, the Benq GP30 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the GP30.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

With a maximum horizontal synchronization of 102 kilohertz, the Benq GP30's maximum horizontal synchronization is one of the highest amongst data projectors of this age and type. The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 85kHz, the highest is 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 95kHz.

Chart Edit

Supports Five Video Formats

The Benq GP30 has a greater number of supported video formats than most projectors that have been around for around the same time as it. This data projector supports an AVI video format, which is the most commonly supported video format supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the GP30. The video formats "DAT", "MPEG", "MPEG1" and "XVID" are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

Supports Two Image Formats

The Benq GP30 has a greater number of supported image formats than most projectors that were released around the same time as it. This multimedia projector supports a JPG image format, which is the most frequently supported image format supported by multimedia projectors of this type and age. The image format "BMP" is also supported by this Benq projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the projectors of this age and type the weights range from 2.7g to 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg. With a weight of only 1.5 kilograms, the Benq GP30 is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The average width of data projectors of a similar type and age to the GP30 is 380mm. At only 220 millimeters, the Benq GP30 is quite narrow compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the GP30.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

The Benq GP30 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode (only 60 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the GP30. The power consumption in economy mode of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the GP30 range from 3.7W to 290W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 190W.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq GP30 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the GP30 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma HD151[plb_2591351_price]; or the Optoma GT1070[plb_2503383_price], or the LG PA1000[plb_2417081_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors that have been available for a similar time to the GP30 is 2,900 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 900 ANSI lumens, the Benq GP30 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the HD151[pl_2591351_price] (2,800 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the H111[pl_2696721_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Optoma; or the Viewsonic PJD6350[plb_2830965_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This data projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is the most commonly supported zoom ratio on data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

Most data projectors of this age and type have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Benq GP30 which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq GP30

Released Over Two Years Ago

Benq released the GP30 over two years ago.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 36 decibels, the Benq GP30 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the GP30.

We compared all the other 36dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Benq GP30 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution.
