7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 2,080 expert and owner reviews, Benq has good ratings for its projectors. Benq also has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq TW529 supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the Benq Ms524A[plb_3423911_price] is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq TW529 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors also support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Benq Ms524A[plb_3423911_price].

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the MX704[pl_3044441_price], or the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price] both from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq TW529 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the TW529 also have a built-in speaker.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Benq Ms524A[plb_3423911_price].

It is worth considering other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the MX704[pl_3044441_price], or the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price] both from Benq.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq TW529 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector).

This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the TW529.

A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across similar types of projector.

Supports Four Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the Benq TW529 is more than most projectors that are a comparable age to it. This Benq projector supports a Cinema video colour mode, which is the most frequently supported video colour mode supported by recently released comparable spec projectors. The video colour modes "Dynamic", "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

Supports One Video Format

The Benq TW529 has a greater number of supported video formats than most projectors that were launched in the last year. The most commonly supported video format is AVI, but this video format is not supported by this data projector. The video formats ISO (Blu-ray) are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq TW529 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the TW529 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Benq TW529 has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The numbers of colours of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released in the last year range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 890M.

Chart Edit

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Port

The Benq TW529 is a one VGA (D-Sub) port multimedia projector.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 6,000h and 10,000h. The Benq TW529 has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode (only 6,000 hours) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq TW529

Released Eleven Months Ago

It was eleven months ago when Benq released the TW529.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq TW529 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last year.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the MW529[pl_3221473_price], the MX528[pl_3244494_price], and the Ms524A[pl_3423911_price] all from Benq which is cheaper is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Benq TW529 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the MW529[pl_3221473_price], or the MX528[pl_3244494_price] both from Benq.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Benq MS630ST[plb_3140368_price] (33dB).
