9 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 2,086 user and expert reviews for Benq multimedia projectors and found that on average Benq has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Benq has good reviews specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D

The Benq MW821ST supports 3D. Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also support 3D.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think the MW843[pl_2417382_price], and the MX842[pl_2417267_price] both from Benq which is cheaper is also worth considering.
