7 Reasons For
13000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Benq have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Benq also has good reviews across its entire range.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the 720P, the Benq 720P supports 3D image projection.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq MX842 which is cheaper; or the MW663, and the MX819ST ($613.99) both from Benq which has better reviews are also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Benq 720P has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the 720P.
It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the MW663, or the MX819ST ($613.99) both from Benq which has better reviews; or the Benq MX842 which is cheaper.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD 720)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.
Two HDMI Ports
The Benq 720P is a two HDMI port projector.
Quite High RMS Rated Power
With an RMS rated power of 10 Watts, the Benq 720P has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The average RMS rated power of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the 720P is 7W.
+2 More reasons for
100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This data 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.
7 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Benq 720P does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the 720P also do not support Full HD projection.
It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq MX806; or the Benq MX819ST ($613.99).
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Benq 720P does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Quite Dim Projector Brightness
The average projector brightness of multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the 720P is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The Benq 720P has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.
If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the MX806 (3,000 ANSI lumens), or the MX842 (3,000 ANSI lumens) both from Benq which is also cheaper.
Quite Loud Noise Level
The quietest noise level of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 720P is 26dB and the loudest is 40dB. At 34 decibels, the Benq 720P has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 720P.
We compared this data projector to all the other 34dB noise level projectors and we think the Acer P1276 ($1,635.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Benq MW820ST ($1,069.99) (32dB) which is also cheaper.
+4 More reasons against
Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port
The Benq 720P is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the 720P have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Only One Audio Input
The Benq 720P is a one audio input data projector.
Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode
At 30 decibels, the Benq 720P has a fairly loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the 720P. The quietest noise level in economy mode of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 720P is 26dB, the loudest is 38dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Benq 720Puses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.46 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
