6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Benq is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports 3D

The Benq MW526A supports 3D. Most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors also support 3D.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Benq MS517H.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW526A has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW526A.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq MS517H is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MW526A is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WXGA (1280x800) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution amongst all latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

An XGA (1024x768) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of multimedia projector.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Benq MW526A has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors. Most of the recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

At 4,500 hours, the Benq MW526A has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other new projectors. Data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW526A have service life of lamps of between 3,000h and 20,000h.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors, the Benq MW526A does not support full HD.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support full HD to this data projector and we think the MS517H, the Ms524A ($299.00), or the TW529 all from Benq is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Benq MW526A does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW526A also do not support wi-Fi.

There are a number of other projectors which also support wi-Fi which you might want to look at including the Ricoh PJ WX4152NI ($1,628.98).

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW526A

Released Ten Months Ago

Average Projector Brightness

The Benq MW526A has a fairly typical projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW526A.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the Ricoh PJ WX4152NI ($1,628.98) (3,500 ANSI lumens), or the Benq 9H.JCJ77.13W (4,000 ANSI lumens).

Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the MW529 ($429.00) (33dB), the MS527 (33dB), or the MX528 ($490.44) (33dB) all from Benq.
