11 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked the user and expert reviews of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector brand. On average Benq projectors have good reviews from users and experts.

Supports Full HD

The Benq SH960 supports full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the SH960 which do not support full HD.

Other projectors which support full HD currently available that you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Epson 475Wi[plb_1778250_price], or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A[plb_1884022_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age, the Benq SH960 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EB-425W[plb_1844228_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

At 5,500 ANSI lumens, the Benq SH960 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the SH960. The dimmest projector brightness of similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 100 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 8,000 ANSI lumens.

If you want a data projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Hitachi CP-WX8265[plb_1900979_price] (6,500 ANSI lumens).

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq SH960 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the SH960 the best resolution is WUXGA (1920x1200) and the worst is SVGA (800x600).

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Benq SH960 is 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 projectors that came out more than two years ago. This projector also support a supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 640 x 480 (VGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all projectors of a similar age and spec to the SH960.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) supported graphics resolutions is the worst supported resolution across comparable types of projector.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Resolution

The biggest native resolution of the Benq SH960 is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the native resolution of the most common native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A 1080p (1920x1080) native resolution is in fact the best native resolution amongst all projectors of a similar spec and age to the SH960.

The worst native resolution amongst similar types of data projector is SVGA (800x600).

Two Lamps Quantitys

The Benq SH960 has more lamps quantitys than most of the data projectors of this age and spec. This data projector is a two lamps quantity multimedia projector compared to most of the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the SH960 which only have one lamps quantity.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The Benq SH960 is a two number of built-in speakers projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the SH960 have bulb powers of between 140W and 400W, and the average bulb power is 240W. At 330 Watts, the Benq SH960 has a fairly big bulb power compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the SH960.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as it.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The Benq SH960 does not support 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the SH960 also do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D including the NEC NP-M311W[plb_1525270_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the SH960 do not support wi-Fi. The Benq SH960 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the EB-425W[pl_1844228_price], or the BrightLink 436Wi[pl_1875520_price] both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the SH960 the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 230h to 20,000h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 3,000 hours, the Benq SH960 has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the SH960 range from 1,500h to 30,000h. When compared to other projectors of this spec and age, the Benq SH960's service life of lamp of only 2,000 hours is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The average number of colours of projectors of a comparable type and age to the SH960 is 340M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M. At only 1.07 million, the Benq SH960 has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

Most multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys, including the Benq SH960 which has one USB 2.0 ports quantity.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in

The Benq SH960 is a one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in projector. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the SH960 have between one and two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

Projectors that came out more than two years ago have noise levels of between 26dB and 45dB. The Benq SH960 has a very loud noise level (41 decibels) compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the SH960.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The lightest projector of a comparable age and spec to the SH960 is 230g heavy, the heaviest is 30kg, and the average weight is 4.9kg. When compared to other data projectors that are a comparable age to the SH960 that we have checked, the weight of the Benq SH960 of 13 kilograms is one of the heaviest.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The noise level (economic mode)s of projectors that have been available for a similar time to the SH960 range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. The Benq SH960 has one of the loudest noise level (economic mode)s (35 decibels) amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
