13000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Benq have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Benq also has good reviews across its entire range.

The Benq ES500 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years do not support Full HD projection.
