9 Reasons For

Benq Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector brand. On average data projectors manufactured by Benq have good ratings from users and experts.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq SW916 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Acer P7605[plb_2204603_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq SW916 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 7500:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the SW916.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the PT-TX301[pl_1944623_price], the PT-TW331[pl_2062153_price], and the PT-LX321[pl_2132094_price] all from Panasonic is also worth considering.

We compared all the other 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this projector and we think the Acer P7605[plb_2204603_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
