Presentations always look better when a projector is used, but the one in your home might not be the best option.

Not only do you need a projector with plenty of lumens, but it also has to be durable and easy to set up.

The BenQ LH710 is a maintenance-free projector that produces bright images in ambient lighting. While it seems that the LH710 comes with everything you need, it’s always best to give it a closer look. >>> Check price on Amazon

Brightness and Image Quality

You won’t have any problems using the projector in rooms that aren’t completely dark. It comes with 4,000 lumens and has a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Images will be bright, sharp, and clear even if the lights aren’t turned off. ( The list of the best projectors for bright spaces can be found here)

The 1080p resolution produces accurate colors, but some of the boldness you’re used to with a home laser projector is missing with the LH710. However, charts, diagrams, web sites, and spreadsheets are stunningly bright and crisp on the screen.

Installation and Ease of Use

It is a medium-throw projector that comes with flexible installation. Placed 10 to 12 feet away from the screen, it will project 120’ images. While you do need some space to use the projector, it can be installed almost anywhere. You can mount the projector on a table or the ceiling. It’s also designed to fit into corners. >>> Check price on Amazon

You won’t have problems aligning the images. Along with manual keystone correction, there is also a 1.3X zoom to help center on-screen images. You also have options on how you control the projector. Along with the side buttons and included remote, you can use the LAN port to access the included online projector control systems for easy operation from anywhere in the room. The control systems can even be used to schedule upgrades.

Maintenance-free

When a projector is being used at work or in the classroom it needs to be durable. BenQ designed this model so it is maintenance-free. It features a sturdy casing that can handle daily use. To eliminate the need to replace the lamp or dust filter, the imaging components are sealed.

Since it uses a long-lasting laser lamp, you won’t have to worry about replacing it every few years. To prevent image colors from fading it uses a DLP chip so your presentations will always look sharp and clear on the screen.

Consumer Impressions

Consumer reviews are favorable though pointed out that for a little more money, you can get an office projector better equipped to produce realistic colors. Others have mentioned that at 13 lbs., it’s too heavy to move from room to room. Overall though, consumers think that it’s worth its affordable price.
