Reviews

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Projectors from Benq have an average rating of 87%, which is in the top 24% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq SW916 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the P7605 (£1,790.12), and the P7505 (£1,434.97) both from Acer which has better reviews is also worth considering.
