Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The MH856UST has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago. This data projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector compared to most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MH856UST which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MH856UST the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 100kHz to 110kHz. The Benq MH856UST has one of the higher maximum horizontal synchronization (102 kilohertz) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MH856UST have lamp power of between 170W and 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W.
