9 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

Two Benq 720P reviewers mentioned in their reviews that the product was not heavy and bulky. Three years ago Mr B N Armstrong wrote on Amazon “Its a little bit small for my chunky digits and it could had backlit buttons” but he scored it 80 out of 100. Phil Uk wrote in his review of the Benq 720P on Amazon “No rainbow effects, no artefacts - Great lamp power, 4m diagonally projection during beautiful english day (heavy rain) is just fine” nonetheless he still gave the Benq 720P a rating of 5 stars.

Inferior Sound Quality

Several people considered that the Benq 720P did not have good sound quality. I P Jones wrote in their review of the Benq 720P “The sounds not so good tho” but in spite of that they still gave it a score of 5 stars.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq 720P does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the 720P also do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the X123PH[pl_3186331_price], or the X133[pl_2780263_price] both from Acer is also worth considering.
