9 Reasons For
Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors
On average Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all data projectors produced by Benq.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The MS630ST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the Benq MW526 (£468.48) which has a better Rating; or the MX570 (£299.47), or the TW526 (£319.98) both from Benq which is cheaper.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Benq MS630ST supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other projectors that have been available for more than a year.
We compared this projector to all the other data projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq MW526 (£468.48) which has a better Rating; or the MX570 (£299.47), and the TW526 (£319.98) both from Benq which is cheaper are also worth considering.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The MS630ST supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).
A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MS630ST.
The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
We compared all the other data projectors that support a resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA) to this projector and we think the Benq MW526 (£468.48) which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might also want to look at the MX570 (£299.47) (1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper) and cheaper), or the MX525 (£280.53) (1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper) and cheaper) both from Benq.
Two HDMI Ports
The MS630ST is a two HDMI port projector. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MS630ST only have one HDMI port.
Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours, the MS630ST has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago. Across all the comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS630ST the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 500h to 10,000h.
+4 More reasons for
Two USB 2.0 Ports
The MS630ST is a two USB 2.0 port projector.
Very Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode
At only 28 decibels, the MS630ST has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MS630ST. The average noise level in economy mode of comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the MS630ST is 30dB.
13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago have widths of between 280mm and 340mm, and the average width is 300mm. The MS630ST is one of the narrower 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MS630ST (only 287.3 millimeters) amongst similar spec projectors of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Price Has Recently Increased by £60.03
In the last couple of weeks the MS630ST has increased in price by £60.03.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Benq MS630ST does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS630ST also do not support Full HD projection.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq TW526 (£319.98).
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
Like most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the MS630ST, the Benq MS630ST does not support WiFi connectivity.
Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution
The highest resolution of the MS630ST is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768).
A SVGA (800x600) native projector resolution is in fact the worst resolution amongst all comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MS630ST.
Amongst comparable types of data projector the best resolution is WXGA (1280x800).
Projectors with a higher resolution that might also be worth looking at include the X123 (XGA (1024x768 and cheaper) and cheaper), or the X122 (£316.80) (XGA (1024x768 and cheaper) and cheaper) both from Acer.
+2 More reasons against
Very Small Offset
The offsets of projectors of a similar age and type to the MS630ST range from 100% to 130%, and the average offset is 120%. At only 110 percent, the Benq MS630ST has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago.
4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS630ST
Released Over a Year Ago
This projector was released over a year ago.
Running Costs Are Average
The MS630ST has an average running cost of £102 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 37 multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type.
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the MS630ST has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.
We compared this projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Benq TW526 (£319.98) which is cheaper; or the Benq MW526 (£468.48) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
+2 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
The Benq MS630ST has a pretty typical noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MS630ST.
We compared this projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think the TW526 (£319.98), and the MX525 (£280.53) both from Benq which is cheaper; or the Benq MW526 (£468.48) which has a better Rating are also worth considering.

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Benq MS630STuses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 13 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
