Excerpt: This is a great presentation projector for a room with some ambient light or where a larger screen is used. This projector is capable of producing very bright images. However at the brightest settings the color reproduction is poor. With some tuning you can get pretty good color at good brightness levels. For video and movies, I'd look elsewhere. There are too many issues with color reproduction.
Pros: Lens shift, Very bright
Cons: Poor Color Reproduction, Prominent Dlp Rainbows
Summary: I purchased this for an office conference room. I wanted to keep the lights on while the projector was in use. Works great and the resolution is fantastic. The Lens Shift feature was important for our layout.
Summary: I have seen dozens of the BenQ projectors from the SP890 series to this unit. They have a great Lumen output, and the resolution is outstanding for the price. I haven't found a better projector to date that is in the price range with the warranty provided. These are basicly the SP890 but the original SP890s had ballast issues that after several months would start blowing bulbs before they should.
Summary: We purchased 10 of these and have 4 in use 24/7. They are positioned 32' from the viewing wall and are 12' off the ground (our wall is 2 stories high). We went with this model specifically because of it's "long throw" capability. We had 1st tried a different brand of projector, but couldn't get our image small enough due to the 32' distance. With this model, at 32' from the wall, we can get the image as small as 8' (horizontal).
Incredibly Bright, Working Great in Bright Room with Huge Window.

Summary: I installed this BenQ SH940 as a home theatre projector for my exercise room so I can watch movies and tv while working out. My concern was that the room has a huge south-facing sliding glass door that takes direct sunlight through much of the day, and the wall I'm projecting onto is next to a hall with windows as well. So it is in a bright room with regular direct sunlight. I did not want to have to black-out or even put curtains on the windows.
