Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the W1400, the Benq W1400 has a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including the TH682[pl_2448398_price], the W1080[pl_1495063_price], or the MH680[pl_1998672_price] all from Benq which has better reviews.

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

The average matrix size of comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W1400 is 0.62". At 0.65 inches, the Benq W1400 has a quite big matrix size compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Benq W1400 has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think a cheaper projector such as the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq W1080[plb_1495063_price] are also worth considering.
