2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MX520 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MX520 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the MS504 ($308.99), or the MX505 both from Benq which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
