7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Benq has good average reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other brands.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Benq MX520 supports 3D.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price], and the Benq MS504[plb_2024728_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX520 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the MX520 also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price].

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The service life of lamps of projectors of a similar age and type to the MX520 range from 2,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,600h. At 6,500 hours, the Benq MX520 has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MX520.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the Benq MX520 does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the MS504[pl_2024728_price], or the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Benq MX520 does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Benq MX520 has one of the lower numbers of colours amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The numbers of colours of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX520 range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX520 have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 3,000h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 6,100h. At only 4,500 hours, the Benq MX520 has a fairly short service life of lamp (economic mode) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the MX520.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX520

Released Over Four Years Ago

Benq released the MX520 over four years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX520 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MW663[plb_1474011_price].

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the X133[pl_2780263_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the S1283[pl_2575478_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens) both from Acer.
