8 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 2,080 expert and user reviews for Benq data projectors and found that on average Benq has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Benq has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq Ms524A supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the Ms524A do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to look at including the Benq TW529[plb_3287890_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq Ms524A supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other new 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the TW529[pl_3287890_price], the MX704[pl_3044441_price], or the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price] all from Benq is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the Ms524A, the Benq Ms524A has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the TW529[pl_3287890_price], the MX704[pl_3044441_price], or the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price] all from Benq is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq Ms524A supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over two times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 1280 x 720 (HD 720). In addition, this Benq projector supports a graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). Similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the Ms524A graphics resolutions range from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other new similar spec data projectors only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the Benq Ms524A has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

At 102 kilohertz, the Benq Ms524A has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other latest multimedia projectors. Projectors that have been around for around the same time as the Ms524A have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 91kHz and 110kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

The smallest offset of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the Ms524A is 100% and the biggest is 120%. When compared to other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that we have checked the offset of, the Benq Ms524A's offset of 120 percent is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq Ms524A does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the Ms524A also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq Ms524A

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the MW529[pl_3221473_price], or the MX528[pl_3244494_price] both from Benq.

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other new comparable spec data projectors.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the MW529[pl_3221473_price], or the MX528[pl_3244494_price] both from Benq.

If you are not worried about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Benq MS630ST[plb_3140368_price] (33dB).
