10 Reasons For

Popular Choice

The TH681 is a popular choice of projector according to Amazon sales data.

Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Benq 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all data projectors manufactured by Benq.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec which do not support full HD, the Benq TH681 supports full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which support full HD to this projector and we think the LED K132[pl_1564923_price], and the H6510[pl_1557676_price] both from Acer which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the Acer H6520BD[plb_2690133_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

The Benq TH681 supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the TH681 do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the LED K132[pl_1564923_price], or the H6510[pl_1557676_price] both from Acer.

The Benq TH681 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the TH681.
