Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all data projectors Benq is one of the better rated brands.

The Benq MX528 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Benq MW529 ($429.00).

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Ms524A ($299.00), or the TW529 both from Benq is also worth considering.
