7 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Based on 2,086 expert and user reviews, Benq has good ratings for its multimedia projectors. Benq also has good ratings specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other brands.

Supports Full HD

The Benq ES500 supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the ES500 do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think because of it's better review score, the MS504[pl_2024728_price], and the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] is also worth considering.

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the ES500, the Benq ES500 supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MS619[plb_2024148_price].

At 10,000 hours, the Benq ES500 has a very long service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the ES500.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other projectors of this age and type have a built-in speaker(s), however the Benq ES500 does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price], or the Optoma DS330[plb_1878570_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq ES500 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution across all data projectors of this age and spec.

Across similar types of data projector the best resolution is WXGA (1280x800).
