9 Reasons For

Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

We checked 2,080 expert and user reviews for Benq data projectors and found that on average Benq has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Benq has good reviews specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The MW855UST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also support 3D image projection.

Alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might also want to consider include the NEC M303WS, the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95), or the Acer P1515 which is cheaper.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the MW855UST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released one year ago graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST the offsets range from 62% to 150%, and the average offset is 110%. With an offset of 148 percent, the MW855UST has one of the bigger offsets amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The Benq MW855UST has a quite high RMS rated power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST. The RMS rated power of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW855UST range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The MW855UST has more built-in speakers than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST. Most of the projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW855UST only have one built-in speaker, however this projector has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The lowest maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors of this spec and age is 100kHz and the highest is 110kHz. With a maximum horizontal synchronization of 102 kilohertz, the MW855UST has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other data projectors of this spec and age support Full HD projection, however the MW855UST does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95), the Acer P1515, or the NEC M403W which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The MW855UST does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Panasonic PT-VX425N ($1,282.95) which is also cheaper.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This data projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Number of Colours

Similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the MW855UST have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 930M. The number of colours of the Benq MW855UST of only 1.07 million is one of the lowest amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW855UST.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST range from 3,500h to 30,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the MW855UST has a quite short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 3,000 hours, the MW855UST has a fairly short lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MW855UST. The lamp service lives of projectors of a comparable age and type to the MW855UST range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

The MW855UST is a one USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video in Port

The MW855UST is a one component video in port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have one component video in port.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW855UST

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the MW855UST has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MW855UST.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the CPWX3541WN (3,700 ANSI lumens), or the CPX4041WN ($961.99) (4,200 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi which is also cheaper.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This data projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 34 decibels, the MW855UST has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW855UST.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 34dB noise level projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1350.

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Acer P1515 (33dB) which is also cheaper.
