Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

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

Supports Full HD

The MW820ST supports full HD, unlike most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MW820ST which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors which support full HD currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Acer S1283[plb_2575478_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the Benq MX806[plb_2515298_price] is also worth considering.
