10 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Benq multimedia projectors and also specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good reviews.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MX704WI, the MX704WI supports 3D.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the Benq MS517H.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of new 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors is 3,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 4,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. When compared to other projectors that are a similar age to the MX704WI, the MX704WI's projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The MX704WI supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX704WI. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector.

This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all newly released multimedia projectors.

Across comparable types of data projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Supports Four Video Colour Modess

The number of video colour modes supported by the MX704WI is more than most projectors that were released around the same time as it. This Benq multimedia projector supports a Cinema video colour modes, which is the most commonly supported video colour modes supported by comparable spec data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MX704WI. The video colour modess "Dynamic", "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this Benq projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Vertical Synchronization (max)

Across all the projectors that were released around the same time as the MX704WI the vertical synchronization (max)s range from 0.092kHz to 120kHz, and the average vertical synchronization (max) is 52kHz. With a vertical synchronization (max) of 120 kilohertz, the MX704WI has a quite high vertical synchronization (max) compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the MX704WI.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The MX704WI has a fairly quiet noise level (only 31 decibels) compared to most of the other new 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors. The average noise level of similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MX704WI is 34dB.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the MW529 ($429.99) (33dB), the 9H.JCJ77.13W (31dB), or the MX704 (31dB) all from Benq.

Chart Edit

Very Big Bulb Power

The smallest bulb power of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released in the last year is 3.5W and the biggest is 240W. When compared to other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that we have checked, the MX704WI's bulb power of 240 Watts is one of the biggest.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MX704WI does not support full HD. Most of the other new projectors also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the MS517H, the Ms524A ($299.00), or the TW529 all from Benq is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The MX704WI does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other projectors that came out in the last 12 months also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Ricoh PJ WX4152NI ($1,628.98).
