10 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

Benq has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

Supports 3D

The MW855UST supports 3D, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the MW855UST do not support 3D.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper projectors such as the M303WS[pl_3113387_price], or the M333XS[pl_3113388_price] both from NEC.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D including the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW855UST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the MW855UST.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including the Hitachi CPX4041WN[plb_3393438_price], or the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Benq MW855UST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar age and type to the MW855UST. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. In addition, this multimedia projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

The smallest offset of similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the MW855UST is 62% and the biggest is 150%. With an offset of 148 percent, the Benq MW855UST has one of the bigger offsets amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have RMS rated powers of between 2W and 20W. At 20 Watts, the MW855UST has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW855UST.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The Benq MW855UST has more number of built-in speakerss than most of the data projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW855UST. Most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW855UST only have one number of built-in speakers, however this multimedia projector has two number of built-in speakerss.

Chart Edit

Quite High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

The average horizontal synchronization (max) of projectors of this spec and age is 100kHz, and the horizontal synchronization (max)s range from 100kHz to 110kHz. The MW855UST has a fairly high horizontal synchronization (max) (102 kilohertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many data projectors of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

The quietest noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the MW855UST is 26dB, the loudest is 43dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of only 29 decibels, the MW855UST has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that came out around the same time as the MW855UST.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the MW855UST, the MW855UST does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative data projectors which also support full HD including the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The MW855UST does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW855UST also do not support wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Number of Colours

At only 1.07 million, the MW855UST has a very low number of colours compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW855UST. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW855UST the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 940M.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The MW855UST has a quite short service life of lamp (economic mode) (only 4,000 hours) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the MW855UST. 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW855UST have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 1,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 7,100h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

Projectors of a comparable age and type to the MW855UST have service life of lamps of between 1,500h and 30,000h. With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the MW855UST has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Ports Quantity

The Benq MW855UST is a one USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the MW855UST have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 5 kilograms, the MW855UST is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW855UST. The average weight of 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST is 5.2kg, and the weights range from 2.2g to 68kg.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW855UST

Released Over a Year Ago

This multimedia projector was released over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW855UST has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 965H[plb_2953833_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the CPWX3541WN[pl_3869046_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens), or the CPX4041WN[pl_3393438_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens) both from Hitachi which is also cheaper.

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the MW855UST is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

The MW855UST has a fairly typical noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released around the same time as the MW855UST.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Epson EB-585W[plb_2237068_price] (35dB).
