      Comments about BenQ SH910 DLP Digital Projector:

      I've had this projector a little over a month now. I am using it in a theater I have setup in my home. I chose this model primarily for it's brightness level, HD image, and its audio system. The 4000 lumens have been more than sufficient for my setting and has even enabled me to run it in eco mode with a little dimmer display which is still plenty bright. I like that there is a setting to slightly change the color of the image based on the color of paint on the wall in case you don't have a screen, which I used for the first few weeks.

      The audio system on the projector is what you would expect from a normal TV. The volume is loud enough to fill a normal room in a house. In fact, I have to tell the kids to turn it down sometimes when they are watching a movie. But, if you are looking for high quality sound, you will need to use an external audio system which I plan to do. The built in speakers tend to produce sound more in the mid range. I am thankful for the volume of the built in speakers so I did not have to buy an audio system right away and when I am using it for presentations in small settings it should be adequate.

      I like the quick cool down option on the projector. When you turn it off, the fan blows a burst of air through the system to cool it quickly and then it sounds like it goes off after only about 10 secs although there may be a small fan still blowing but it is very quiet at that point.

      The only con I have for the projector is that I am a little disappointed in the keystone. BenQ projectors tend to have an upward pointing slant on the projected images which is designed, I believe, so that when it is set on a table top, you do not have to raise it as much to have the image on a typical screen. I have ceiling mounted the projector (upside down) and although it is mounted at the height of the top edge of the projector screen, the projector looks like it is pointing up instead of down like you would expect. The problem is I think at this angle, it throws off the angle causing a need for more of a keystone correction than the projector can provide. Even set at it's max, I still need a little more keystone to make the image square. This is a little surprising since I not have the projector very high at all. This may be a flaw only when it is mounted upside down from the ceiling. Otherwise, this has been as perfect projector for me.

      Great projector. We use at retreats and conferences for people ranging from 200-450 people. Running video from one projector to the other is really simple. Easy to use and set up. Remote works great with blank slide and changing viewing type (rear, front, ceiling, table, etc). Love this projector.

      Comments about BenQ SH910 DLP Digital Projector:

      I bought this projector for use in an outdoor theater. It has worked great right out of the box. I was a little worried because of other reviews that I read that said this projector needs a lot of adjustment to get a good picture. I am not a tech person so I have been pleasantly surprised that I did not have to do a thing and the picture looks great!I would definitly recommend this projector.

      Great Projector

      By Mighty dynamo

      from Ny

      Comments about BenQ SH910 DLP Digital Projector:

      This is a very robust projector. This will be our third upgrade over a period of 15 years or so at our church. We already have benQ projectors in other venues and they have worked well. In looking at other reviews and comments that said this projector works better in partial or full light conditions they are absolutely correct. We are amazed at how bright and crisp the picture is even in Eco mode.

        Comments about BenQ SH910 DLP Digital Projector:

        I was asked to help look for a new projector to replace one of our chuch projectors because the image was getting Blurry. I don't know much about brands and quality, so I did a search for the best projectors of 2014. A Ben Q was at the top of the list. We had never heard of this brand so to make sure, we decided to spend a little more on the higher class projector. Let me just say that now this projector makes our "good" projector look bad. The picture is very sharp, bright and clear. Better than higher priced competitors. We use the church sound system, so we can't say how good the sound is. We just need the best picture.

          I have been using this projector for a week now, and I am very happy with it. Excellent quality for the money; easy to operate, crisp colors, a hassle-free piece of equipment. Connecting to my Mac took a minute.

          The sound quality is not that great but then what can one expect of the projector speaker? I mean it's OK to just watch movies but if you want special effects, etc. you will have to hook it to an audio system

          We're using it in a classroom for 24 students. Works great on 50% illumination rooms. BenQ is a good brand. Not so expensive.
          B&H has the better price.

          Epic Projector

            Comments about BenQ SH910 DLP Digital Projector:

            This projector is simply epic. The projector itself is very robust and features like the manual zoom/focus are much more solid then flimsy little adjusters found on other projectors. This projector was needed for a large conference room to display business presentations. It is used every day and has been used for a few weeks now without a single issue. We needed to upgrade to this projector from a 1 year old Mitsubishi projector (That cost more initially by the way) because only this projector could display a clear enough image on a 10 foot diagonal screen. Don't settle for anything less than the standard of 1080P if you want a perfect image for a 10 foot screen. This projector delivers perfect res at an amazing lumen count for the best price out there. Coupled with the reliability and quality of BenQ, and you have a clear winner.

              We use this projector in its native 16:9 format. Paired with a 16:9 screen, we now have full screen display! No more black border!!

              Quality of image is very good. The remote is a handy feature and I appreciate the "blank" button.
