8 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

This multimedia projector received a rating of 80 out of 100 from projector expert review site PC Mag.

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We calculated the average ratings for all Benq projectors and also specifically for Benq projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good ratings.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq SW921 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

Other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include the Optoma W320UST ($1,273.98) which is cheaper; or the Sony VPL-HW40ES ($2,399.99) which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq SW921 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the SW921 also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the Optoma W320UST ($1,273.98).

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the SW921 is 3,400 ANSI lumens. The Benq SW921 has a fairly bright projector brightness (5,000 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Benq SW921 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). The resolution of all projectors of a similar age and spec to the SW921 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The Benq SW921 has one of the highest RMS rated power (20 Watts) amongst projectors of this age. The RMS rated power of similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago range from 1.5W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 6.9W.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors that are a comparable age to the SW921 do not support Full HD projection. The Benq SW921 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Sony VPL-HW40ES ($2,399.99) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
