Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq W703D has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at include because of their better review scores, the Acer X1311, the Epson PowerLite 1222 ($688), or the Vivitek H1180HD.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq W703D does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as this data projector also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Acer X1311, the Optoma ML750, or the Epson Home Cinema 600 are also worth considering.

3D-Ready

Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to this multimedia projector the projector brightnesses range from 300 ANSI lumens to 20,000 ANSI lumens. The Benq W703D has a fairly dim projector brightness (only 2,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available including the Benq W1070 ($499) which has better reviews.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Benq W1350 (2,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the Vivitek H1185HD (2,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Acer S1370 (2,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
