Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq PW9500 does not have a built-in speaker(s), although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to this projector also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma HD151X is also worth considering.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq PW9500 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma HD151X which is also higher rated.

Performance

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the 2800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago the noise levels range from 27dB to 44dB, and the average noise level is 40dB. The Benq PW9500 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 39 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to this projector.

We compared all the other 39dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the Benq PX9600 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Resolution

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Benq PW9500 has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 5,700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 2800:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The dimmest projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and type is 2,800 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 8,500 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 6,600 ANSI lumens.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 5,700 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including because of its better review score, the Benq PX9600.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the PHWX-81B (7,300 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PHWU-81B (7,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Barco or the Benq PW9620 (£4,428.31) (6,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
