8 Reasons For
Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors
Based on 2,080 owner and expert reviews, Benq has good reviews for its projectors. Benq also has good reviews specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors range compared to other manufacturers.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other projectors of this age and spec, the Benq MS630ST supports 3D image projection.
We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews; or the X122[pl_2731913_price], and the X133PWH[pl_3034973_price] both from Acer which is cheaper are also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The MS630ST has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.
We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the Benq MX525[plb_2415515_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Benq MX570[plb_2417268_price].
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the MS630ST is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MS630ST. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector.
This data projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MS630ST.
A 640 x 480 (VGA) graphics resolution is the worst supported resolution across similar types of data projector.
Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
The MS630ST has a fairly long service life of lamp in economic mode (10,000 hours) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MS630ST the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 500h to 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h.
Two HDMI Ports
Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than a year ago only have one HDMI port, however the Benq MS630ST has two HDMI ports.
+3 More reasons for
Two USB 2.0 Ports
The MS630ST is a two USB 2.0 port projector. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.
100V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago.
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Most similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS630ST do not support Full HD projection. The Benq MS630ST is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.
We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the X133PWH[pl_3034973_price], or the X112H[pl_2741930_price] both from Acer; or the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price] are also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The MS630ST does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS630ST also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Only SVGA (800x600) Native Projector Resolution
The Benq MS630ST has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800).
This projector's resolution (SVGA (800x600)) is actually the worst resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MS630ST.
The best resolution across comparable types of projector is WXGA (1280x800).
4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS630ST
Released Over a Year Ago
This Benq data projector has been on the market for over a year.
Running Costs Are OK
The MS630ST is typical compared to the other 24 projectors of this age and spec that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the MS630ST is £102.
Average Projector Brightness
The Benq MS630ST has a pretty typical projector brightness (3,200 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other data projectors of this spec and age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MX525[plb_2415515_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews.
+2 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
At 33 decibels, the MS630ST has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MS630ST.
It may also be worth considering one of the other 33dB noise level projectors currently available including a cheaper projector such as the MX525[pl_2415515_price], or the MX507[pl_3048398_price] both from Benq or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price].

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.
