9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average multimedia projectors from Benq are rated 86%, which is in the top 27% of all multimedia projector manufacturers that we have assessed.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq SH963 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the SH963 which do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic PT-FX400U.
