5 Reasons For

Benq Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Multimedia projectors built by Benq are some of the better multimedia projectors according to average reviews from experts and users.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year have noise levels of between 27dB and 44dB. The Benq PW9520 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 39 decibels) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PW9520.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the PX9510[pl_3220784_price] (39dB), or the PU953[pl_3258638_price] (39dB) both from Benq.

Very Big Matrix Size

At 0.7 inches, the Benq PW9520 has a very big matrix size compared to most of the other 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PW9520. The average matrix size of 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PW9520 is 0.68", and the matrix sizes range from 0.65" to 0.7".

Light

The weights of projectors of a similar age and type to the PW9520 range from 4.5kg to 21kg. The Benq PW9520 is fairly light (only 16.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PW9520.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Benq PW9520 does not support 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec also do not support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Optoma HD151X[plb_3288932_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PW9520, the Benq PW9520 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma HD151X[plb_3288932_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Benq PW9520 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PW9520 also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq PW9520 does not have a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma HD151X[plb_3288932_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PW9520 is 3,500h. At only 3,000 hours, the Benq PW9520 has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PW9520.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The Benq PW9520 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 6,000 ANSI lumens) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and spec is 6,400 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 2,800 ANSI lumens to 8,500 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Benq PX9510[plb_3220784_price] (6,500 ANSI lumens).
