Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq SH960 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson V11H475020 is also worth considering.

Projector

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of data projectors of a comparable type and age to this multimedia projector range from 100 ANSI lumens to 7,000 ANSI lumens. When compared to other multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as this data projector, the projector brightness of the Benq SH960 of 5,500 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

If you would prefer a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the CP-WU8460 (6,000 ANSI lumens), or the CP-WX8265 (£2,469.99) (6,500 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi.
