7 Reasons For

Good Brand

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors built by Benq have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Benq also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D

The Benq MS527 supports 3D. Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MS527 also support 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available which you might also want to look at including the Benq MS517H[plb_3346531_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D including the Benq MW529[plb_3221473_price].

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MS527.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MS527 does not support full HD. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MS527 also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support full HD including the Benq MS517H[plb_3346531_price] which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MS527 is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all similar spec projectors that have been around for the last year the resolution ranges from WVGA (854x480) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MS527 the projector brightnesss range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 4,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq MS527 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other recently released multimedia projectors.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors and we think the Benq MS517H[plb_3346531_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
