6 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support 3D

The Benq PW9500 does not support 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Chart Edit

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of projectors of this age and spec is 6,800 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightnesss range from 5,700 ANSI lumens to 7,700 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 5,700 ANSI lumens, the Benq PW9500 has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PW9500.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the PW9620[pl_2992285_price] (6,700 ANSI lumens), the PU9730[pl_2818801_price] (7,000 ANSI lumens), or the PW9710[pl_2893394_price] (7,700 ANSI lumens) all from Benq which is also higher rated.
