The BenQ LK953ST can be ceiling mounted close to the screen, due to its short throw design.
The front of the BenQ LK953ST has the lens and IR sensor for the remote control.
The right side of the BenQ LK953ST has the control panel and the cool air intake vents.
The left side of the BenQ LK953ST has the hot air exhaust vent.
The back of the projector has the inputs and connectors panel.
The speaker is located on the bottom of the BenQ LK953ST.
The BenQ LK953 is a 4K UHD laser projector designed for installation in a variety of business and education environments. It is compact compared to many competing laser projectors, measuring 19.3 inches wide, 15 inches deep, and 6.3 inches tall and weighing just over 20 pounds, due in part to its DLP technology. It can be mounted in all the usual ways – table top (front or rear) and ceiling (front or rear).
The front of this BenQ houses the lens, positioned on the far right, with its manual zoom and focus controls. Opposite the lens, there is an IR sensor for the remote control. The hot air exhaust vent is on the left side of the projector, while the cool air intake vent, a simple control panel, and three indicator lights are on the left.
The LK953ST has the same chasey as the LU950 I reviewed late last year. Like the LU950, the LK953ST has a center of gravity marker on the bottom for easier installation, along with its 10-watt speaker. The inputs and connectors panel is on the back of the projector – speaking of, let’s talk about that in detail in the following section.
