10 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all Benq multimedia projectors and also specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good ratings.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year which do not support Full HD projection, the MX631ST supports Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Acer S1283Hne which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at including the Benq MW571 ($549.99), or the Acer S1283e.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MX631ST, the Benq MX631ST supports 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think cheaper projectors such as the Acer S1283Hne is also worth considering.

Alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to look at include the MW632ST ($564.00), or the MW571 ($549.99) both from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX631ST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Acer S1283Hne.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the MW632ST ($564.00), or the MW571 ($549.99) both from Benq is also worth considering.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The MX631ST does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the MX631ST also do not support WiFi connectivity.

The average offset of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX631ST is 120%, and the offsets range from 100% to 130%. With an offset of only 105 percent, the MX631ST has one of the smaller offsets amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit
