Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews
On average Benq projectors are rated 86%, which is in the top 27% of all projector manufacturers that we have looked at.
Just Released Four Months Ago
This data projector was only released four months ago. Newer data projectors like this one are likely to use better technology.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Benq LU9235 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other latest 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors also have a built-in speaker.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Benq LU9235 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the LU9235 do not support Full HD projection.
Quite Bright Projector Brightness
The dimmest projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for the last year is 300 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,800 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq LU9235 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other recently released 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors.
WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the Benq LU9235 is WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all projectors that came out in the last 12 months is SVGA (800x600) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).
There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200) currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper projectors such as the Benq PU953 (£4,272.28).
If the resolution of this multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the JVC DLA-X7000BE (2160p (3840x2160 and cheaper) and cheaper); or the Sony VPL-VW300ES (£3,995.00) (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160 and higher rated) and higher rated).

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Benq LU9235 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).
This multimedia projector's resolution (1600 x 1200 (UXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last year.
A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector.
If the resolution of this projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the Sony VPL-VW300ES (£3,995.00) (720 x 576|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080 and higher rated)|3840 x 2160|4096 x 2160 and higher rated); or the Canon WUX450ST (£4,471.20) (640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1280 x 800 (WXGA and cheaper)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and cheaper)|1440 x 900 (WXGA+ and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+ and cheaper)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and cheaper) and cheaper).
Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports
The Benq LU9235 has more ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports than most of the latest 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors. Most of the 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the LU9235 only have one ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port, however this multimedia projector has two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.
Quite High RMS Rated Power
The lowest RMS rated power of new similar spec data projectors is 2W and the highest is 26W. The Benq LU9235 has a fairly high RMS rated power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec projectors.
Two HDMI Ports
The Benq LU9235 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the LU9235 have between one and two HDMI ports.
Two VGA (D-Sub) Ports
Most latest 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the Benq LU9235 which has two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
8 Reasons Against
Does Not Support 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the LU9235, the Benq LU9235 does not support 3D image projection.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Like most of the other latest 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors, the Benq LU9235 does not support WiFi connectivity.
Quite Loud Noise Level
The average noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year is 32dB, and the noise levels range from 24dB to 40dB. With a noise level of 36 decibels, the Benq LU9235 has one of the louder noise levels amongst 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode
The quietest noise level in economy mode of new projectors is 23dB, the loudest is 37dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. The Benq LU9235 has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode (33 decibels) compared to most of the other recently released similar spec data projectors.
+5 More reasons against
Quite Short Lamp Service Life
The Benq LU9235 has one of the shorter lamp service lives (only 20,000 hours) amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The shortest lamp service life of recently released 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 4,000h and the longest is 30,000h.
Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode
With a power consumption in economy mode of 500 Watts, the Benq LU9235 has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the latest similar spec multimedia projectors the power consumption in economy mode range from 38W to 680W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 320W.
At 25 kilograms, the Benq LU9235 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 100000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for the last year. Across all the similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the LU9235 the weights range from 650g to 28kg, and the average weight is 7.9kg.
High Running Costs
Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the LU9235 is £209, which makes it one of the less economic to run projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Benq LU9235uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 1.0 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 27 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
