7 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked 2,080 expert and user reviews for Benq projectors and found that on average Benq has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Benq has good reviews specifically within its projectors range.

Reasonably Priced

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it was a bargain for the price. Expertreviews.co.uk said on Expert Reviews ten years ago “Its quite cheap for a DLP projector, especially one with 2,000 lumens” however despite that they only gave the product a score of 60 out of 100.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MP610 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the MP610 which do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer H7531D[plb_1418806_price], the Epson PowerLite G5910[plb_2092784_price], and the Optoma HD25[plb_1883129_price] is also worth considering.

Three Component Video in Ports

The Benq MP610 is a three component video in port projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

Narrow

The narrowest multimedia projector that came out more than two years ago is 130mm wide, the widest is 750mm, and the average width is 380mm. The Benq MP610 is fairly narrow (only 283 millimeters) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MP610.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest projector that was released more than two years ago is 2.7g heavy, the heaviest is 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg. When compared to other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MP610 that we have assessed the weight of, the Benq MP610's weight of only 2.724 grams is one of the lightest.

7 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

Expert review website Expert Reviews scored this projector 60%. It seems that projector experts really don't rate this multimedia projector very highly.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq MP610 does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MP610.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might also want to consider including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], the Sony VPL-HW40ES[plb_2298294_price], or the Panasonic PTAE7000U[plb_1897671_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MP610 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors of this type and age also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the EH501[pl_1986510_price], or the HD25[pl_1883129_price] both from Optoma or the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq MP610 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the MP610 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a WiFi connectivity and we think the Elmo BOXi MP-350[plb_2578320_price], the LG PW700[plb_2778836_price], or the Optoma W305ST[plb_1726307_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MP610 is SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is actually the worst resolution across all projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

The best resolution across comparable types of projector is 1080p (1920x1080).

Chart Edit

Only One Built-In Speaker

Most multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the MP610 have one built-in speaker, including the Benq MP610 which has one built-in speaker.
