17 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 2,080 user and expert reviews, Benq has good reviews for its data projectors. Benq also has good reviews specifically for its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq MW853 supports Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW853 do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the MW853 which do not support 3D image projection, the Benq MW853 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MW853 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MW853 also have a built-in speaker.

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to consider include the Epson EB-S18[plb_2017450_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the EB-S17[pl_2017452_price], or the EB-W03[pl_2148096_price] both from Epson is also worth considering.
