8 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Based on 2,086 owner and expert reviews, Benq has good ratings for its projectors. Benq also has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

The Benq MS512 supports full HD, unlike most of the other data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MS512 which do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think the MS504 ($308.99), and the MX505 both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MS512, the Benq MS512 supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq MS619 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MS512 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Benq TW523.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is the most commonly supported supported graphics resolutions on data projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

Comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 0.1kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 92kHz. At 102 kilohertz, the Benq MS512 has a fairly high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the MS512.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

With a weight of only 1.9 kilograms, the Benq MS512 is one of the lighter multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MS512 amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the MS512 have weights of between 1.3kg and 6.2kg.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Benq MS512 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MS512 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all projectors of this spec and age.

Amongst comparable types of projector the best resolution is WXGA (1280x800).

Very Small Bulb Power

The average bulb power of multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MS512 is 210W. The Benq MS512 has a fairly small bulb power (only 190 Watts) compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than two years ago.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS512

Released Over Three Years Ago

Benq released the MS512 over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MS512 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the MS512.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MS504 ($308.99) which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the X133 ($644.90) (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the S1283 ($453.51) (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Acer.

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 33 decibels, the Benq MS512 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS512.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available including the Benq MS619 which has better reviews.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MS502 (33dB).
