SmartEco Mode cleverly adjusts the lamp power to maximize energy savings. Providing only as much light as needed helps deliver the best possible image, with optimum contrast and brightness levels....
We calculated the average ratings for all Benq data projectors and specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.
Only Released Six Months Ago
Benq only released the Ms524A six months ago.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Benq Ms524A supports 3D image projection. Most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors also support 3D image projection.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Benq Ms524A has a built-in speaker. Most of the other latest comparable spec projectors also have a built-in speaker.
Supports Full HD Projection
The Benq Ms524A supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the Ms524A which do not support Full HD projection.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
This projector supports a graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as it.
+3 More reasons for
Fairly High Maximum Vertical Synchronization
The maximum vertical synchronization of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year range from 0.085kHz to 240kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 80kHz. With a maximum vertical synchronization of 120 kilohertz, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other new data projectors.
Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
The maximum horizontal synchronization of comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the Ms524A range from 91kHz to 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 97kHz. At 102 kilohertz, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other newly released projectors.
1 Reason Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Most multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year do not support WiFi connectivity. The Benq Ms524A is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.
3 Other reasons to consider the Benq Ms524A
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq Ms524A has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other latest comparable spec multimedia projectors.
Average Noise Level
At 33 decibels, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the Ms524A.
SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution
This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of SVGA (800x600), which is typical of many projectors that were released in the last 12 months.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Benq Ms524Auses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.45 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
