10 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors built by Benq have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Benq also has good reviews across its entire range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX852 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the MX852.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq W1400[plb_1731595_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to consider including the EB-965[pl_2017458_price], or the EB-580[pl_2237073_price] both from Epson.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq MX852 supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. The worst resolution of all comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Benq MX852 has a quite quiet noise level (only 33 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The average noise level of projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MX852 is 36dB.

There are a number of other 33dB noise level projectors currently available that you might also want to consider including the W1400[pl_1731595_price], the W1300[pl_1998671_price], or the MH680[pl_1998672_price] all from Benq which has better reviews.

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of projectors of this spec and age is 9W. At 20 Watts, the Benq MX852 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX852.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Benq MX852 is a two built-in speaker data projector. Most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the MX852 have between one and two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MX852 the maximum vertical synchronization range from 0.085kHz to 240kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 68kHz. The Benq MX852 has a fairly high maximum vertical synchronization (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MX852.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

The offsets of comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX852 range from 8% to 150%, and the average offset is 100%. With an offset of 140 percent, the Benq MX852 has a very big offset compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the MX852.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Benq MX852 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MX852 have between one and three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MX852 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 90kHz and 110kHz. When compared to other projectors of a similar age and spec to the MX852 that we have assessed, the maximum horizontal synchronization of the Benq MX852 of 102 kilohertz is one of the highest.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX852 do not support 3D image projection. The Benq MX852 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D image projection to this data projector and we think the W1400[pl_1731595_price], or the W1080[pl_1495063_price] both from Benq; or the Acer P5307[plb_1569831_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MX852 does not support Full HD projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX852 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the W1400[pl_1731595_price], or the W1080[pl_1495063_price] both from Benq or the NEC L102[plb_2226819_price].

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other data projectors of this spec and age, the Benq MX852 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is the most commonly supported zoom ratio on projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

At only 1.07 million, the Benq MX852 has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years. The numbers of colours of similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MX852 range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 480M.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MX852 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 3,500h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,100h. At only 5,000 hours, the Benq MX852 has a fairly short service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MX852.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The Benq MX852 is a one HDMI port projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX852 have between one and two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The Benq MX852 is one of the heavier 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years (5 kilograms) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average weight of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX852 is 4.6kg.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and two audio in ports, including the Benq MX852 which has one audio in port.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX852

Released Over Two Years Ago

Benq released the MX852 over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX852 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX852.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Epson EB-945[plb_2017456_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the Panasonic PT-TW340E[plb_3140214_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens) which is also cheaper.
