8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Benq is one of the superior data projector manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Benq also has good ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MS514 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MS514 also support 3D image projection.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might also want to consider include the Benq MX522 which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MS514, the Benq MS514 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the MX661, or the MS619 both from Benq.

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MS514 range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MS514 has one of the brighter projector brightness amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Supports Four Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the Benq MS514 is more than most projectors of this type and age. This Benq data projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most frequently supported video colour mode supported by 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The video colour modes "Cinema", "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this Benq multimedia projector.

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 data projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The widths of projectors of this spec and age range from 260mm to 340mm. With a width of only 283 millimeters, the Benq MS514 is one of the narrower 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest data projector that was launched around the same time as the MS514 is 1.3kg heavy and the heaviest is 5.4kg. The Benq MS514 is one of the lighter 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MS514 (only 1.9 kilograms) amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MS514 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the MS514 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq MS504 (£430.20) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS514, the Benq MS514 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Economy Mode

At 220 Watts, the Benq MS514 has a quite high power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the MS514 the power consumption in economy mode range from 0.31W to 340W.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS514

OK Running Costs

The MS514 is typical compared to the other 72 projectors of this spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the MS514 will cost £91 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Benq released the MS514.

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the Benq MS514 has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MS514.

We compared this data projector to all the other 32dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq TW523 (£345.96) is also worth considering.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the MX806 (£496.66) (32dB), or the MX518 (32dB) both from Benq.
