13 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This projector has an average expert rating of 71% based on three expert reviews from sites including PC Mag, projectorcentral.com and IT Reviews.com.

Good Picture Quality

Four Benq MW519 owners thought it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

Four customers who reviewed the Benq MW519 agreed that it was good quality. Pcmag.com gave it a score of 4 stars and said in their Benq MW519 review three years ago “Its data image quality, which is best over a digital connection, is fine for typical presentations, while video quality is suitable for shorter clips”. Pcmag.com also wrote “The BenQ MW519 is a likable data projector for classroom use, with good data image quality over a digital connection, 3D capabilities”. Projectorcentral.com mentioned in their review of the Benq MW519 “Data image quality is noticeably worse over an analog (VGA) connection than with HDMI”.

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all Benq multimedia projectors and also specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good reviews compared to other brands.

Good Technical Features

A number of people who reviewed this projector wrote that it had good features. Three years ago Itreviews.com said on expert website IT Reviews.com “Some appealing features inclu” in their review but despite that they only rated it 3 stars. Expert website Chip.com.my wrote “Some big, some small, some with a number of cool bells and whistles” in their review.

Reasonably Priced

One Benq MW519 reviewer who purchased it thought it was cheap. Expert website Projectorcentral.com wrote “Are looking for an inexpensive projector for a conference room or classroom” in their review.

Robust

One person said that it was well made. Projectorcentral.com said “Solid data image quality, especially over HDMI”.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MW519 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the ES500[pl_3258242_price], and the MX703[pl_2031057_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DS328[plb_1946553_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MW519 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the MS619[pl_2024148_price], or the MW817ST[pl_1414729_price] both from Benq which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is typical of many data projectors of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MW519 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

This projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is actually the best resolution amongst all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MW519.

Amongst comparable types of projector the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Benq MW519 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors of a similar type and age to the MW519. This Benq projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector compared to most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MW519 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MW519 do not support Full HD projection. The Benq MW519 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support Full HD projection including the ES500[pl_3258242_price], or the MS504[pl_2024728_price] both from Benq or the Acer X133[plb_2780263_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago, the Benq MW519 does not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity which you might want to look at including the Benq MW817ST[plb_1414729_price].

Quite Loud Noise Level in Economy Mode

At 30 decibels, the Benq MW519 has a quite loud noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The noise levels in economy mode of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW519 range from 26dB to 38dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW519

Average Running Costs

The MW519 has an average running cost of £83 over 1 year based on average energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 72 data projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Benq data projector was released over three years ago.

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the Benq MW519 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MW519.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 32dB noise level data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the MW663[pl_1474011_price], or the MS517[pl_1463623_price] both from Benq.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] (32dB).

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW519 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MW519.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,800 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MS517[plb_1463623_price].

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the MX816ST[pl_1550166_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the MX620[pl_2024732_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Benq or the Acer X123[plb_2717080_price] (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
