12 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq HT2050A

Higher Resolution

The Benq HT2050A has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p), and so is the Benq HT2150ST, which is twice as high resolution as the Benq MW535A and the Benq MW612 (1280 x 800 (WXGA)) and 3 times higher resolution as the Benq MX819ST (1024 x 768 (XGA)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

Quieter Noise Level

The Benq HT2050A has a noise level of 29 (as does the Benq HT2150ST), but the Benq MW535A and the Benq MX819ST are both 32dB projectors (3dB louder) and the Benq MW612 is a 34dB projector (5dB louder). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

50W Bigger Bulb Power

The Benq HT2050A is a 240 lamp power projector, and so do the Benq HT2150ST and the Benq MW612. That's 30W bigger than the Benq MW535A (210W) and 50W bigger than the Benq MX819ST (190W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

3D

The Benq HT2050A supports 3D, and so do the Benq HT2150ST, the Benq MW535A and the Benq MX819ST, whereas the Benq MW612 does not. More ...

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Full HD

The Benq HT2050A supports full HD, and so do the Benq HT2150ST and the Benq MX819ST, however the Benq MW535A and the Benq MW612 do not. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Ceiling Mountable

The Benq HT2050A is a ceiling mountable projector (as is the Benq MW535A), however the Benq HT2150ST, the Benq MW612 and the Benq MX819ST are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

Handheld Remote Control

The Benq HT2050A has a handheld remote control, and so do the Benq MW535A, the Benq MW612 and the Benq MX819ST, but the Benq HT2150ST does not. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!

Better Kagoo Score

The Benq HT2050A has received a Kagoo Score of 85, but the Benq MW535A scored 84, the Benq MW612 scored 82 and the Benq MX819ST scored 82.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

One More Award

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq HT2050A

Dimmer Projector Brightness

Benq HT2050A is only 2 brightness, and so does the Benq HT2150ST. That's 1,400 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MW535A (3,600 ANSI Lumens), 1,800 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MW612 (4,000 ANSI Lumens) and 800 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MX819ST (3,000 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Benq HT2050A has a service life of lamp of 3, and so does the Benq HT2150ST. That's 1,500h shorter than the Benq MW535A (5,000h), 500h shorter than the Benq MW612 (4,000h) and 1,000h shorter than the Benq MX819ST (4,500h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Lower User Review Score

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq MW612

Only 1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The Benq MW612 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), and so is the Benq MW535A, which is half as high resolution as the Benq HT2050A and the Benq HT2150ST (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

13% Louder Noise Level

The Benq MW612 has a noise level of 34, however the Benq HT2050A and the Benq HT2150ST are both 29dB projectors (5dB quieter) and the Benq MW535A and the Benq MX819ST are both 32dB projectors (2dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area.
