That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec projectors that were released more than a year ago. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. In addition, this data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). Across all projectors that were released one year ago the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW853UST+ does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out more than a year ago.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the Acer H6517ST[plb_3145185_price], or the Epson Home Cinema 600[plb_3077179_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and spec, the MW853UST+ does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the NP-M403X[pl_3427656_price], the PH1202HL[pl_2988016_price], or the NP-M363W[pl_3708169_price] all from NEC is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW853UST+, the MW853UST+ does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Powerlite W28+[pl_2973314_price], or the EX7235[pl_3060914_price] both from Epson or the Hitachi CP-AW2505[plb_3762614_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This data projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The average weight of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than a year is 5.2kg. At 5 kilograms, the MW853UST+ is fairly heavy compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MW853UST+.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the MW853UST+ has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the MW853UST+.

Alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available that you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the NEC NP-U321H-WK[plb_2893781_price].

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the M333XS[pl_3113388_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the NP-M333XS[pl_3818269_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) both from NEC or the Hitachi CP -AW3005[plb_3406373_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
