Good Brand

Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Benq is one of the better rated brands.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq MW705 supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW705 which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection and we think because of it's better review score, the MX631ST[pl_3089359_price], and the MW571[pl_3402568_price] both from Benq or the Acer S1283Hne[plb_3202253_price] is also worth considering.

Other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to consider include the MX631ST[pl_3089359_price], or the MW632ST[pl_3028640_price] both from Benq or the Acer S1283Hne[plb_3202253_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MW705 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW705 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the MX631ST[pl_3089359_price], and the MW632ST[pl_3028640_price] both from Benq or the Acer S1283Hne[plb_3202253_price] is also worth considering.
