12 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

This 5000:1 contrast ratio data projector received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from PC Mag.

Low Running Costs

The SX920 is one of the cheaper to run new comparable spec projectors that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the SX920 will cost £161 over 1 year to run.

Good Brand

On average Benq 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all projectors built by Benq.

Only Released Three Months Ago

Benq only released the SX920 three months ago.

Price Has Recently Dropped by £238.05

In the last few weeks the price of the SX920 has dropped by £238.05.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq SX920 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the SX920 which do not support 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq SX920 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the SX920 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Hitachi CP-WX5505[plb_3255965_price], the Panasonic PT-VW535NAJ[plb_3878390_price], and the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL[plb_3702945_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Benq SX920 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's 9% more resolution than a 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that were launched in the last year. In addition, this Benq projector supports a graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). The best resolution of all latest multimedia projectors is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

At 20 Watts, the Benq SX920 has a very high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the SX920. 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the SX920 have RMS rated power of between 10W and 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 15W.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Benq SX920 is a two built-in speaker data projector. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the SX920 only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Across all the new 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors the widths range from 380mm to 530mm. With a width of only 411.4 millimeters, the Benq SX920 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the SX920.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 4.9 kilograms, the Benq SX920 is fairly light compared to most of the other recently released data projectors. The average weight of recently released comparable spec multimedia projectors is 8.3kg, and the weights range from 4.9kg to 24kg.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq SX920 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other recently released 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic PRO8530HDL[plb_3702945_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year do not support WiFi connectivity. The Benq SX920 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The Benq SX920 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all similar spec data projectors that have been around for the last year the resolution ranges from WVGA (854x480) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

At only 5,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq SX920 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months. The dimmest projector brightness of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the SX920 is 4,800 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 6,200 ANSI lumens.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit
