Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Benq are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average reviews from users and experts.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 39 decibels, the Benq PW9520 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PW9520 the noise levels range from 27dB to 44dB.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq PW9520 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than a year ago also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Optoma HD151X[plb_3288932_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq PW9520 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Optoma HD151X[plb_3288932_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PW9520, the Benq PW9520 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Optoma HD151X[plb_3288932_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
