The BenQ LU950 is an installation projector for business and education applications, measuring 19.3 inches wide, 15 inches deep, and 6.3 inches tall and weighing just over 20 pounds. It can be mounted on a table top, front or rear, and ceiling mounted – also front or rear. We never ceiling mount projectors when we get them in for review, as it would be impractical with the amount of varying sizes and shapes that come through. As such, I will be describing the projector as it appears when looking at it on a table top.
The front of the projector has the lens, of course, which is positioned on the far right and has manual zoom and focus controls. Also on the front, on the left side of the projector, is the IR sensor for the remote control. On the left of the projector is the hot air exhaust vent. On the right, we have the cool air intake vent, a simple control panel, and three indicator lights.
The bottom of the projector is not something I usually mention, but in the case of the BenQ LU950, it has something worth mentioning: a center of gravity marker for easier installation. The speakers are also located on the bottom. The inputs and connectors panel is on the back, and has a healthy amount, too – everything you’ll need for your business or education applications. We’ll go into more detail on what’s back there in the following section.
