5 Reasons For

Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 2,080 expert and owner 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 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other latest multimedia projectors, the Benq MW526A supports 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the MS527[pl_3221474_price], the MS517H[pl_3346531_price], or the MW529[pl_3221473_price] all from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at including the MS527[pl_3221474_price], the MS517H[pl_3346531_price], or the MW529[pl_3221473_price] all from Benq.
