The BenQ LX60ST Projector - A Quick Look
|BenQ LX60ST||BenQ LW61ST|
What they have in common:
DLP technology, 2000 lumens, 80000:1 contrast ratio, 11.2 lbs., HDMI, Monitor Out (VGA), 10W stereo speakers, close captioning, network notification, network control, USB for presenting, remote mousing, short-throw lens, 10000 hour lamp life in max mode, 20000 hour lamp life in eco-mode, 3 year P/L warranty, 3D ready
The BenQ LX60ST is virtually identical to the LW61ST projector, which earned our Best in Classroom Award, except that the LX60ST has a native resolution of 1024x768. The X in LX60ST stands for XGA resolution, just as the W in LW61ST stands for WXGA (widescreen resolution). Because of this difference in resolution, the LX60ST is slightly cheaper than the LW61ST (MAP $1899 instead of $1999).
Otherwise, both projectors are an excellent choice for your classroom or office environment. To learn more about why, read about the LW61ST on our Awards page... Just forget the widescreen!
