Video

Supports Full HD

The Benq SU917 supports full HD, unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as this projector which do not support full HD.

There are a number of alternative projectors which support full HD currently available which you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the EH-TW6600, or the Home Cinema 3000 ($549.99) both from Epson.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq SU917 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this type and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Sony VPL-CX236 ($1,249.95) or you might consider a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the Epson EH-TW6600.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Casio XJ-H2600 is also worth considering.
