8 Reasons For

Benq Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors built by Benq have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all data projectors and found that Benq also have good reviews overall.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other data projectors of this age and spec the Benq MX514P has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ projector such as the iPowerUp SGT1001W, the Infocus SP8600HD3D, and the Epson EH-TW5910 are also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support 3D image projection, however the Benq MX514P supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which support 3D image projection including a higher rated product such as the JVC DLA-X35, the Epson EH-TW9100, or the Mitsubishi Electric HC7900DW.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Benq MX514P has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX514P. Most of the projectors of a similar age and spec to the MX514P only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Big Number of Colours

The average number of colours of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX514P is 760M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M. With a number of colours of 1,070 million, the Benq MX514P has one of the bigger numbers of colours amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of data projectors of this age and type range from 2,500h to 20,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 6,000 hours, the Benq MX514P has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest projector that is more than two years old is 2.7g weight and the heaviest is 16,000g. The Benq MX514P is quite light (only 2,500 grams) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

A Bit Narrow

The widths of projectors that came out more than two years ago range from 26mm to 490mm, and the average width is 360mm. With a width of only 287.3 millimeters, the Benq MX514P is one of the narrower comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX514P amongst projectors of this age.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MX514P does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and type also do not support Full HD projection.

There are a number of other projectors with a Full HD projection that you might want to also look at including the Vivitek D516, the Epson EH-TW9000, or the Mitsubishi Electric HC9000D.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq MX514P does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The Benq MX514P has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

A XGA (1024x768) native projector resolution is actually the worst resolution across all projectors that are older than two years.

A 1080p (1920x1080) native projector resolution is the best resolution amongst comparable types of projector.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) including a better rated multimedia projector such as the ZX212ST, or the ZX210ST ($1,619.99) both from Optoma or the Vivitek D517.

If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to also look at the SA560 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the SA565 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from LG or the Optoma ZW212ST (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Chart Edit
