9 Reasons For

Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Benq data projectors and also specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good reviews compared to other brands.

Supports Wi-Fi

The MW817ST supports wi-Fi, which is unusual. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW817ST do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW817ST, the MW817ST supports 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D and we think the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price], and the Benq MS504[plb_2024728_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MW817ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the MX522[pl_2029720_price], or the MX503[pl_1418386_price] both from Benq which has better reviews.

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 comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MW817ST is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

A WXGA (1280x800) projector native resolution is actually the best resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MW817ST.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution across similar types of data projector.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The MW817ST is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

The average RMS rated power of projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW817ST is 7.5W, and the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W. The Benq MW817ST has a quite high RMS rated power (10 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW817ST.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as it.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MW817ST does not support full HD, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MW817ST also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the MS504[pl_2024728_price], or the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the Benq MW817ST has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. The noise levels of projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW817ST range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB.

Alternative projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Benq MS502[plb_1385309_price] (33dB).

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

The average offset of data projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 120%. At only 110 percent, the Benq MW817ST has a quite small offset compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors of this type and age is 6,100h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,000h to 10,000h. The MW817ST has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s (only 5,000 hours) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

With a lamp power (economic mode) of only 5,000 Watts, the MW817ST has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. The lamp power (economic mode)s of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MW817ST range from 3,000W to 10,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 6,000W.

2 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW817ST

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this Benq data projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MW817ST has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think the Benq MW663[plb_1474011_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the X133[pl_2780263_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the S1283[pl_2575478_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Acer.
