8 Reasons For

Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Benq projectors and also specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MS514 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the MS514 also support 3D image projection.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MS514, the Benq MS514 has a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the MS619, or the MS504 ($308.99) both from Benq.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of multimedia projectors of this age and type range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The Benq MS514 has one of the brighter projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) amongst projectors of this age.

We compared all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the MX600, and the MW526 ($402.74) both from Benq is also worth considering.

Supports Four Video Colour Modes

The Benq MS514 has a greater number of video colour modes than most projectors of this spec and age. This data projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most frequently supported video colour mode supported by 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MS514. The video colour modes "Cinema", "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a comparable age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

At only 283 millimeters, the Benq MS514 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MS514. The narrowest multimedia projector that was launched more than two years ago is 260mm wide, the widest is 340mm, and the average width is 300mm.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of data projectors of a similar age and type to the MS514 range from 1.3kg to 5.4kg. With a weight of only 1.9 kilograms, the Benq MS514 is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MS514 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the MS514 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the MS504 ($308.99), or the MX505 both from Benq which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MS514 do not support WiFi connectivity. The Benq MS514 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

With a power consumption in economy mode of 220 Watts, the Benq MS514 has one of the higher power consumption in economy mode amongst similar spec projectors of this age. The power consumption in economy mode of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years range from 0.31W to 340W, and the average power consumption in economy mode is 200W.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS514

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this Benq projector was released.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 32 decibels, the Benq MS514 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MS514.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the MX806 (32dB), the MX518 (32dB), or the MS524 ($453.00) (32dB) all from Benq.
