Video

Supports Full HD

The Benq SU917 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this projector do not support full HD.

Other data projectors which support full HD currently available that you might want to consider include the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,303) which has better reviews.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq SU917 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Sony VPL-CX236 (£1,102.42) or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,303).

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Casio XJ-H2600 (£1,426.98).

Performance

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the Benq SU917 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as this projector. The average noise level of multimedia projectors of this spec and age is 32dB, and the noise levels range from 21dB to 45dB.

Other 36dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to look at include the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,303) which has better reviews.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the VPL-CX236 (£1,102.42) (34dB and cheaper), or the VPL-CX235 (£1,104.01) (35dB and cheaper) both from Sony.
