10 Reasons For

Only Released Two Months Ago

As one of the newer data projectors, this projector is likely to have more advanced features.

Good Brand

Benq is one of the better rated multimedia projector manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Benq also has good ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for the last year, the Benq MX704 supports 3D image projection.

Other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the TW529[pl_3287890_price], or the Ms524A[pl_3423911_price] both from Benq.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the Benq MS630ST[plb_3140368_price] is also worth considering.
