12 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

On average Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other brands as do all projectors built by Benq.

Supports 3D

The MW851UST supports 3D, as do most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other data projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think the Optoma DX346, and the Benq MS504 ($308.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW851UST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq MX522 ($560.13) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is the most frequently supported supported graphics resolutions on multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The MW851UST has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is in fact the best resolution across all similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW851UST.

Across similar types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Very High RMS Rated Power

Across all the data projectors of this spec and age the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W. The RMS rated power of the MW851UST of 20 Watts is one of the highest amongst projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The Benq MW851UST is a two number of built-in speakers data projector. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than two years only have one number of built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

The offsets of projectors of this age and spec range from 100% to 160%, and the average offset is 120%. With an offset of 144 percent, the MW851UST has a quite big offset compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the MW851UST.

Chart Edit

Two Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The MW851UST is a two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in data projector. Most of the other data projectors of this age and type only have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Bulb Power

At 230 Watts, the MW851UST has a quite big bulb power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the MW851UST. 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MW851UST have bulb powers of between 190W and 310W.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the MW851UST the noise level (economic mode)s range from 26dB to 38dB. At only 27 decibels, the MW851UST has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MW851UST.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other data projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the MW851UST does not support full HD.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support full HD including the MS504 ($308.99), or the MX505 both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011 ($806.62) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The MW851UST does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the MW851UST has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Projectors of this age and spec have projector brightnesss of between 800 ANSI lumens and 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Benq MX518 (2,800 ANSI lumens).

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp

Projectors of this age and spec have service life of lamps of between 2,000h and 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,600h. At only 3,500 hours, the MW851UST has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MW851UST.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

At only 5,000 hours, the MW851UST has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 6,100h.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of comparable spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago range from 1.3kg to 6.2kg, and the average weight is 2.8kg. At 5.3 kilograms, the MW851UST is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.
