9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Multimedia projectors manufactured by Benq generally have good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq SH963 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the SH963 do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including the Panasonic PT-FX400U ($1,525.95) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq SH963 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 75 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 11,000 ANSI lumens. When compared to other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the SH963 that we have checked, the Benq SH963's projector brightness of 6,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

There are a number of alternative 6,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to consider including the Benq SX914 ($1,699.00) which has better reviews.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq SH963 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). The worst resolution of all data projectors of this age and spec is VGA (640x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq SH963 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). The resolution of all projectors of this age and spec ranges from 640 x 400 to 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Benq SH963 has more HDMI ports than most of the projectors of this age and type. This Benq data projector is a two HDMI port data projector compared to most of the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the SH963 which only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Quite High Number of Colours

At 1,070 million, the Benq SH963 has a fairly high number of colours compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the SH963. The lowest number of colours of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1M and the highest is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Lamp Power

The Benq SH963 has one of the bigger lamp power (350 Watts) amongst data projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that have been around for more than two years the lamp power range from 130W to 580W, and the average lamp power is 230W.

9 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq SH963 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider including the Benq SX914 ($1,699.00).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq SH963 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the SH963 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Gigabyte BRIX Projector, or the Epson EH-TW6600 which also has a higher rating.
