7 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Supports Full HD Projection

The Benq Ms524A supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched in the last year do not support Full HD projection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Benq TW529[plb_3287890_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the Ms524A, the Benq Ms524A supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the TW529[pl_3287890_price], the MX528[pl_3244494_price], or the MW529[pl_3221473_price] all from Benq which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq Ms524A has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other recently released data projectors.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including cheaper projectors such as the TW529[pl_3287890_price], the MX528[pl_3244494_price], or the MW529[pl_3221473_price] all from Benq.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq Ms524A supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's 9% more resolution than the most frequently found graphics resolution of 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+). In addition, this Benq projector supports a graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA). Across all comparable spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the Ms524A the best resolution is 3840 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 350.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Benq Ms524A is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the Ms524A have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 91kHz and 110kHz. At 102 kilohertz, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other latest comparable spec multimedia projectors.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

£34.15 Price Increase

In the last 57 days the Ms524A has increased in price by £34.15.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq Ms524A does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Ms524A also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution

The Benq Ms524A has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. The worst resolution of all data projectors that were released around the same time as the Ms524A is WVGA (854x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq Ms524A

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq Ms524A has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for the last year.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including cheaper projectors such as the MW529[pl_3221473_price], the MX528[pl_3244494_price], or the TW529[pl_3287890_price] all from Benq.

Running Costs Are Average

The average running cost of the Ms524A is £91 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 9 recently released projectors.

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months.

We compared this projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think the MW529[pl_3221473_price], the MX528[pl_3244494_price], and the TW529[pl_3287890_price] all from Benq which is cheaper is also worth considering.
