6 Reasons For

Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all projectors Benq is one of the better rated brands.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Benq 720P supports 3D image projection.

Other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider include a cheaper data projector such as the Benq MW843 ($1,198.99) or you might consider a better rated data projector such as the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62).

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Optoma ML800 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the 720P, the Benq 720P has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq MW843 ($1,198.99) which is cheaper; or the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Optoma ML800.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD 720)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Benq 720P is a two HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the 720P have between one and two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq 720P does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago, the Benq 720P does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of this age and type the projector brightness range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens. The Benq 720P has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 720P.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the MX842 (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the MW843 ($1,198.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Benq or the Optoma EW556 (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Quite Loud Noise Level

Data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the 720P have noise levels of between 26dB and 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB. The Benq 720P has a fairly loud noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX822ST (40dB).

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Benq 720P is a one VGA (D-Sub) port projector.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Lamp Service Life

Projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the 720P have lamp service lives of between 2,500h and 20,000h. With a lamp service life of only 4,000 hours, the Benq 720P has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio Input

The Benq 720P is a one audio input projector. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the 720P have one audio input.
