14 Reasons For

Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

Data projectors manufactured by Benq have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors (not just data projectors) and found that Benq also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports Wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the GP30 which do not support wi-Fi, the Benq GP30 supports wi-Fi.

There are a number of other data projectors which support wi-Fi currently available which you might also want to consider including the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price] which is cheaper.
