This projector received an expert rating of 70% from PC Mag.

Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Good 3D Picture Quality

One customer who bought it reckoned that it had a good 3D picture quality.

Good Connectivity

One Benq MW853UST+ reviewer said in their reviews that it was good in terms of HDMI connections. Pc Mag said in their review on PC Mag “Two HDMI ports with full 3D support”.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The MW853UST+ supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors of this age and type.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at including the W1350, or the MW855UST ($1,299.99) both from Benq or the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) which has better reviews.

The highest resolution supported by the MW853UST+ is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). The worst resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Big Offset

At 144 percent, the MW853UST+ has a quite big offset compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW853UST+. The offsets of multimedia projectors of this age and spec range from 62% to 150%.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW853UST+ only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the MW853UST+ has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MW853UST+ does not have a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MW853UST+.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99), or the CP -AW3005 both from Hitachi or the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The MW853UST+ does not support Full HD projection, unlike most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the Hitachi CP-TW2505 ($1,392.99), the Panasonic PT-VW355N ($1,226.95), or the Benq W1350 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq MW853UST+ does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW853UST+ also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the PT-VW355N ($1,226.95), or the PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) both from Panasonic is also worth considering.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This multimedia projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is the most frequently supported zoom ratio on multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Across all the comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MW853UST+ the weights range from 380g to 68kg. The MW853UST+ is one of the heavier projectors that were released one year ago (5 kilograms) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW853UST+

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over a year.

Average Projector Brightness

The MW853UST+ has a fairly average projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW853UST+.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to look at the MX882UST (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the MH856UST (3,500 ANSI lumens) both from Benq or the Hitachi CP -AW3005 (3,300 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The MW853UST+ has a pretty average noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the MW853UST+.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer P1515 is also worth considering.
