9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

Data projectors built by Benq generally have good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the SH963 which do not support full HD, the Benq SH963 supports full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support full HD currently available including the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price], or the Panasonic PT-FX400U[plb_1816819_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than two years, the Benq SH963 has a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the EH-TW490[pl_1731975_price], or the PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD[pl_2187387_price] both from Epson which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq SH963 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all projectors of a similar age and spec to the SH963 the resolution ranges from VGA (640x480) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

The highest resolution supported by the Benq SH963 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar type and age to the SH963. This projector also supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). The worst resolution of all projectors that are a comparable age to the SH963 is 640 x 400 and the best is 4096 x 2160.

9 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

Most comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the SH963 do not support 3D. The Benq SH963 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support 3D including the Optoma HD83[plb_1763299_price].

The Benq SH963 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the SH963 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Gigabyte BRIX[plb_2116585_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
