10 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

On average Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors manufactured by Benq.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MX850 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also support 3D image projection.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to look at including the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price], or the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX850 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the MX850.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price], or the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

Projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MX850 have offsets of between 100% and 160%. At 150 percent, the Benq MX850 has a very big offset compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MX850.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the Benq MX850 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the MX850. Multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated power of between 1W and 20W.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers
