16 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Benq 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all projectors Benq is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Supports Full HD Projection

Unlike most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW853 which do not support Full HD projection, the Benq MW853 supports Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson 1975W is also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MW853 supports 3D image projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MW853 do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Optoma ML550 (£434.94).

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MW853, the Benq MW853 has a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the NEC NP-M282 which has better reviews.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the Benq MW853 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MW853. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Benq projector. 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW853 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many data projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 33 decibels, the Benq MW853 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MW853. Across all the projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW853 the noise levels range from 28dB to 49dB.

Alternative 33dB noise level projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Benq MH680 (£262.70) which has better reviews.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Acer K132 (£431.99) (33dB), or the Infocus IN8606HD (£521.19) (33dB).

Supports Four Video Colour Modes

The number of video colour modes supported by the Benq MW853 is more than most similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to it. This Benq projector supports a Dynamic video colour mode, which is the most commonly supported video colour mode supported by similar spec data projectors that have been around for more than two years. The video colour modes "Cinema", "Presentation" and "sRGB" are also supported by this projector.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW853 the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W. At 20 Watts, the Benq MW853 has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MW853.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Benq MW853 is a two built-in speaker projector.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Vertical Synchronization

With a maximum vertical synchronization of 120 kilohertz, the Benq MW853 has a quite high maximum vertical synchronization compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the MW853. The lowest maximum vertical synchronization of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago is 0.12kHz, the highest is 240kHz, and the average maximum vertical synchronization is 73kHz.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

The smallest offset of projectors of a similar age and type to the MW853 is 8% and the biggest is 140%. The Benq MW853 has a very big offset (140 percent) compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

Projectors that came out more than two years ago have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 90kHz and 110kHz, and the average maximum horizontal synchronization is 99kHz. At 102 kilohertz, the Benq MW853 has a very high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two USB 2.0 Ports

The Benq MW853 is a two USB 2.0 port data projector.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

With a lamp service life of 7,000 hours, the Benq MW853 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst projectors of this age. Data projectors of a similar type and age to the MW853 have lamp service lives of between 500h and 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,400h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 7,000 hours, the Benq MW853 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the MW853. The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MW853 is 1,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq MW853 does not support WiFi connectivity, although this is within the context that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the MW853 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 is also worth considering.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is the most commonly supported zoom ratio on projectors of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW853 have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 480M. At only 1.07 million, the Benq MW853 has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the MW853.

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

The Benq MW853 is a one HDMI port data projector. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec have between one and two HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Heavy

The weights of data projectors of a comparable type and age to the MW853 range from 360g to 54kg. At 5 kilograms, the Benq MW853 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released around the same time as the MW853.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The Benq MW853 is a one audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to the MW853 have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW853

Average Running Costs

The MW853 is typical compared to the other 136 projectors of this spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the MW853 will cost £97 over 1 year to run.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this multimedia projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW853 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite 580.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might also be worth looking at include the Epson EB-585W (£760.76) (3,300 ANSI lumens).
