14 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Benq multimedia projectors and also specifically for Benq 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good ratings.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The MH856UST supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MH856UST.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews; or the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other data projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq MW883UST[plb_3181970_price].

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq MH856UST supports Full HD projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection and we think a cheaper projector such as the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price], and the Hitachi CP-TW2505[plb_3255162_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MH856UST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MH856UST.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including the Panasonic PT-VX605N[plb_3123717_price], the Vivitek DW3321[plb_3066881_price], or the Acer U5520B[plb_3013609_price] which is cheaper.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the MH856UST is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most frequently found native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800). Similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MH856UST native projector resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The MH856UST supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). Across all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MH856UST the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

At 150 percent, the Benq MH856UST has a very big offset compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MH856UST. The smallest offset of projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MH856UST is 62% and the biggest is 150%.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports

Most projectors of this age and type have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the MH856UST which has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

At 20 Watts, the MH856UST has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MH856UST. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MH856UST have RMS rated power of between 2W and 26W.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Benq MH856UST is a two built-in speaker data projector.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The MH856UST has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors of this type and age. This data projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the projectors that were released around the same time as the MH856UST which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

The maximum horizontal synchronization of projectors of a comparable age and type to the MH856UST range from 100kHz to 110kHz. At 102 kilohertz, the MH856UST has a fairly high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Lamp Power

The lamp power of comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year range from 170W to 420W, and the average lamp power is 250W. With a lamp power of 280 Watts, the MH856UST has a fairly big lamp power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MH856UST.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Price Increase of £106.55

The price of the MH856UST has increased by £106.55 in the last 41 days.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most data projectors of a similar spec and age to the MH856UST do not support WiFi connectivity. The MH856UST is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Epson EB-1420Wi[plb_2369727_price] is also worth considering.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

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

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level

With a noise level of 37 decibels, the MH856UST has one of the louder noise levels amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age. The noise levels of projectors of a similar age and spec to the MH856UST range from 25dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 34dB.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Epson EB-1420Wi[plb_2369727_price] (35dB).

Very Short Lamp Service Life

Across all the similar spec projectors that were launched more than a year ago the lamp service lives range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,200h. With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the MH856UST has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst comparable spec projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Vertical Synchronization

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MH856UST have maximum vertical synchronization of between 0.085kHz and 120kHz. With a maximum vertical synchronization of only 0.12 kilohertz, the MH856UST has one of the lower maximum vertical synchronization amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

The Benq MH856UST has a quite loud noise level in economy mode (33 decibels) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the MH856UST. Similar spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MH856UST have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 43dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

Expensive

We checked 68 projectors of this spec and age and they range in price from £176 to £6,734. We think that this data projector looks expensive compared to other projectors of this spec and age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MH856UST

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Benq released the MH856UST.

Average Running Costs

The MH856UST has an average running cost of £126 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 82 multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec.

Average Projector Brightness
