4 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq MX850UST

High (13000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Benq MX850UST has a high (13000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST), but the Acer P1500 only has a medium contrast ratio and the Epson PowerLite 1761W only has a low contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

3D

The Benq MX850UST supports 3D, and so do the Acer P1500, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST, however the Epson PowerLite 1761W 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.

Ethernet LAN

The Benq MX850UST has an Ethernet LAN (as does the Optoma EH415ST), but the Acer P1500, the Epson PowerLite 1761W and the Infocus IN119HDX do not have this feature. More ...

'Ethernet LAN' denotes whether the projector has the native capability to connect to the local network, in order to receive movie files and the like from your computer.

Handheld Remote Control

The Benq MX850UST has a handheld remote control, and so do the Epson PowerLite 1761W, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST, whereas the Acer P1500 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!

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq MX850UST

3 Times Lower Resolution

The Benq MX850UST has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), which is 3 times lower resolution as the Acer P1500, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST (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.

9dB Louder Noise Level

The Benq MX850UST has a noise level of 33, whereas the Acer P1500 is a 29dB projector (4dB quieter), the Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 40dB projector (7dB louder), the Infocus IN119HDX is a 24dB projector (9dB quieter) and the Optoma EH415ST is a 37dB projector (4dB 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.

1,700 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Benq MX850UST is a 2 brightness projector. That's 500 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Acer P1500 (3,000 ANSI Lumens), 100 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Epson PowerLite 1761W (2,600 ANSI Lumens), 1,100 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Infocus IN119HDX (3,600 ANSI Lumens) and 1,700 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma EH415ST (4,200 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.

18% Smaller Bulb Power

The Benq MX850UST has a bulb power of 230. That's 20W bigger than the Acer P1500 (210W), 25W bigger than the Epson PowerLite 1761W (205W), 27W bigger than the Infocus IN119HDX (203W) and 50W smaller than the Optoma EH415ST (280W). 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.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Benq MX850UST is only 3 lamp service life. That's 500h shorter than the Acer P1500 and the Epson PowerLite 1761W (4,000h), 11,500h shorter than the Infocus IN119HDX (15,000h) and 3,500h shorter than the Optoma EH415ST (7,000h). 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.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MX850UST does not support full HD (As does the the Epson PowerLite 1761W), whereas the Acer P1500, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST support this feature. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Benq MX850UST has received a Kagoo Score of 75, whereas the Acer P1500 scored 81, the Epson PowerLite 1761W scored 80 and the Optoma EH415ST scored 77.

$449 More Expensive

The Benq MX850UST is more expensive than the Acer P1500 by $300, more expensive than the Epson PowerLite 1761W by $449 and more expensive than the Infocus IN119HDX by $440.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 shop sell the Benq MX850UST, but 2 shops sell the Epson PowerLite 1761W. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this projector, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Over One Year Older

The Benq MX850UST is older than the Infocus IN119HDX by 15 months and older than the Optoma EH415ST by 15 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 10%

Over five years the running costs of the Benq MX850UST are $65 which is $6 more than the Acer P1500 and $2 more than the Optoma EH415ST. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Benq projectors have an average rating of only 93.9%, but Epson has an average rating of 95% and Optoma has an average rating of 94.1%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the MX850UST in the US is $999.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Epson PowerLite 1761W

Wi-Fi

The Epson PowerLite 1761W supports Wi-Fi, but the Acer P1500, the Benq MX850UST, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi projectors allow you display content from other devices connected to the same network without the need to use a cable.

Ceiling Mountable

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is a ceiling mountable projector, but the Acer P1500, the Benq MX850UST, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST are not. More ...

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Epson PowerLite 1761W

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

1,600 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 2 brightness projector. That's 400 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Acer P1500 (3,000 ANSI Lumens), 100 ANSI lumens brighter than the Benq MX850UST (2,500 ANSI Lumens), 1,000 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Infocus IN119HDX (3,600 ANSI Lumens) and 1,600 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma EH415ST (4,200 ANSI Lumens).

Dimmer Projector Brightness

Acer P1500 is only 3 brightness, but the Benq MX850UST is a 2,500 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (500 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 2,600 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (400 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Infocus IN119HDX is a 3,600 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (600 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Optoma EH415ST is a 4,200 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,200 ANSI lumens brighter). 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.

70W Smaller Bulb Power

The Acer P1500 is a 210 lamp power projector, whereas the Benq MX850UST is a 230W lamp power projector (20W bigger), the Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 205W lamp power projector (5W smaller), the Infocus IN119HDX is a 203W lamp power projector (7W smaller) and the Optoma EH415ST is a 280W lamp power projector (70W bigger). 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.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Acer P1500 has a service life of lamp of 4 (as does the Epson PowerLite 1761W), however the Benq MX850UST is a 3,500h lamp service life projector (500h shorter), the Infocus IN119HDX is a 15,000h lamp service life projector (11,000h longer) and the Optoma EH415ST is a 7,000h lamp service life projector (3,000h longer). 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.

Does Not Have a Handheld Remote Control

The Acer P1500 does not have a handheld remote control, whereas the Benq MX850UST, the Epson PowerLite 1761W, the Infocus IN119HDX and the Optoma EH415ST do. 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!

More Expensive by $149

The Acer P1500 is $149 more expensive than the Epson PowerLite 1761W and $140 more expensive than the Infocus IN119HDX.

Not As Many Stockists

The Acer P1500 is only stocked by 1 retailer, however the Epson PowerLite 1761W is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this projector.
Older by Over Two Years

The Acer P1500 is 10 months older than the Benq MX850UST, two years older than the Infocus IN119HDX and two years older than the Optoma EH415ST.

User Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The Acer P1500 has an average user score of 85%, but the Optoma EH415ST has an average user rating of 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Brand

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

Higher Contrast Ratio

The Optoma EH415ST has a high (15000:1) contrast ratio, and so are the Benq MX850UST and the Infocus IN119HDX, which is twice as high contrast ratio as the Epson PowerLite 1761W (low). More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Optoma EH415ST

Louder Noise Level

The Optoma EH415ST is a 37 projector. That's 8dB louder than the Acer P1500 (29dB), 4dB louder than the Benq MX850UST (33dB), 3dB quieter than the Epson PowerLite 1761W (40dB) and 13dB louder than the Infocus IN119HDX (24dB). 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.

Not As Many Stockists
