11 Reasons For

Good User Reviews

On average, based on 9 user reviews the average user rating of this projector is 88%.

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Benq have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Benq also has good reviews across its entire range.

Good Support

One person reckoned that the product had good technical guidance.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq MX819ST supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX819ST do not support Full HD projection.

Other projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to consider include the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer X1373[plb_2256532_price], or the Benq MW820ST[plb_1552199_price] which is cheaper.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MX819ST supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MX819ST.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer X1373[plb_2256532_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq MX850[plb_2718425_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX819ST has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MX819ST also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the X1373[pl_2256532_price], or the P1283[pl_2189846_price] both from Acer.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the Benq MX850[plb_2718425_price].
