8 Reasons For

Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Supports 3D

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MX816ST, the MX816ST supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price], or the Benq MS504[plb_2024728_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MX816ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the MX816ST.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price] is also worth considering.

This projector supports a Dynamic video colour modes, which is the most frequently supported video colour modes supported by 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MX816ST. The video colour modess "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this data projector.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MX816ST does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as the MX816ST also do not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the MS504[pl_2024728_price], or the MX505[pl_2024730_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DH1011[plb_1726991_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX816ST

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when Benq released the MX816ST.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MX816ST has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MX816ST.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] which has better reviews.

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