4 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Benq is one of the better rated data projector brands according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all projectors.

WUXGA (1920x1200) Native Projector Resolution

The Benq PU953 has a maximum resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200). That's 11% more resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all comparable spec projectors that were released in the last 12 months the resolution ranges from SVGA (800x600) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Alternative projectors that have a resolution of WUXGA (1920x1200) currently available that you might want to look at include the Epson EB-G6770WU which is cheaper.

Data projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth looking at include the Sony VPL-VW300ES (DCI 4K (4096 x 2160 and higher rated) and higher rated) or the JVC DLA-X5000 (2160p (3840x2160 and cheaper) and cheaper).

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq PU953 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PU953. Across all new projectors the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 4096 x 2160.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors that support a resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the PW9520, or the PX9510 both from Benq.

If the resolution of this 2800:1 contrast ratio data projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Sony VPL-VW300ES (720 x 576|1280 x 720 (HD 720)|1920 x 1080 (HD 1080)|3840 x 2160|4096 x 2160) which is also higher rated.
