Benq Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Good Support

One customer who purchased the Benq MX819ST said that it had good technical guidance.

Supports 3D

The Benq MX819ST supports 3D, as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MX819ST.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq MX850[plb_2718425_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D and we think the MW820ST[pl_1552199_price], or the MX806[pl_2515298_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.
