10 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

Projectors built by Benq generally have good ratings.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX660P, the Benq MX660P has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker including a higher rated data projector such as the Viewsonic PJD7333 ($679.99), the Optoma DX5100, or the Benq W1060.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This projector supports graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) and 640 x 480 (VGA), which is typical of many comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to it.

If you would prefer a multimedia projector with a higher resolution then you might want to also look at the PJ WX4240 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), or the PJ X4240N (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Ricoh or the Optoma DX5100 (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated).

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Benq MX660P has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the MX660P. This projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Six Video Modes

The Benq MX660P has a greater number of supported video mode than most projectors of this type and age. This projector supports a 576i video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode supported by 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The video modes "1080i", "1080p", "480i", "576p" and "720p" are also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

Most data projectors of this age and type have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the Benq MX660P which has two USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quiet Noise Level

At only 30 decibels, the Benq MX660P has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The quietest noise level of projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX660P is 26dB and the loudest is 40dB.

Chart Edit

Very Big Digital Zoom

The digital zooms of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 1.1x to 2x. The Benq MX660P has a very big digital zoom (2 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX660P.

Chart Edit

Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 26 decibels, the Benq MX660P has one of the quieter noise levels in economy mode amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are more than two years old the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 35dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

A Bit Narrow

With a width of only 104 millimeters, the Benq MX660P's width is one of the narrowest amongst projectors of this age and spec. The widths of comparable spec data projectors that are more than two years old range from 100mm to 540mm, and the average width is 330mm.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq MX660P does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other data projectors with a 3D image projection to this multimedia projector and we think the DX5100, or the S303 both from Optoma or the Epson PowerLite W16 ($849.00) are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are older than two years do not support Full HD projection, including the Benq MX660P.

There are a number of other projectors with a Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the EB-G6900WU, or the EB-G6450WU both from Epson or the Benq W1060.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the projectors of a similar spec and age to the MX660P, including the Benq MX660P, do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the PJ WX4240, or the PJ WX3340 ($1,250.00) both from Ricoh are also worth considering.

Small Number of Colours

The smallest number of colours of comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX660P is 1M and the biggest is 1,100M. With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Benq MX660P has one of the smaller numbers of colours amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The Benq MX660P is a one audio in port projector.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of data projectors that are more than two years old is 1.2x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Benq MX660P has a quite small optical zoom compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the MX660P.

Chart Edit

Very Tall

At 312 millimeters, the Benq MX660P is very tall compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are older than two years. The heights of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX660P range from 44mm to 390mm, and the average height is 130mm.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX660P

Over Two Years Old

It was over two years ago when Benq released the MX660P.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX660P has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the MX660P.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Optoma W303 (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the LG BD460 (3200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Viewsonic PJD6345 (3500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

There are a number of alternative projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) that you might want to consider including a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the X303, or the DX5100 both from Optoma or the Viewsonic PJD5483S.

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the [pl_1719809] (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the EB-W16 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated) both from Epson or the Viewsonic PJD8633 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
