Review BenQ MS524A DLP 3D Projector
BenQ MS524A Review - BuyDLP.com
BenQ MS524A DLP 3D Projector Review

9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

Benq is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and Benq also has good ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors which do not support full HD, the Benq Ms524A supports full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the TW529, or the MX528E ($379.00) both from Benq.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the Ms524A, the Benq Ms524A supports 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D and we think the Benq MW529 ($429.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider include the TW529, or the MX528 ($490.44) both from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the Ms524A, the Benq Ms524A has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Benq MW529 ($429.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the TW529, or the MX528 ($490.44) both from Benq.
