5 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

Benq is one of the superior projector manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Benq also has good reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MW526A supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the MS527 (£231.80), or the MS517H (£254.38) both from Benq is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MW526A, the Benq MW526A has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the MS527 (£231.80), the MS517H (£254.38), or the MW529 (£266.27) all from Benq.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

With a maximum horizontal synchronization of 102 kilohertz, the Benq MW526A has a fairly high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW526A. Across all the recently released similar spec multimedia projectors the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 91kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MW526A does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW526A also do not support Full HD projection.

Alternative projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to look at include the MS517H (£254.38), or the TW529 (£353.38) both from Benq.
