11 Reasons For

Average Expert Reviews

This Benq projector received an expert rating of 70 out of 100 from PC Mag.

Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Benq has good average reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Good 3D Picture Quality

One Benq MW853UST+ owner who bought this projector wrote that it had a good 3D picture quality.

Good Connectivity

One Benq MW853UST+ reviewer who reviewed it concluded that it was good in terms of HDMI connections. Pc Mag wrote on PC Mag “Two HDMI ports with full 3D support” in their Benq MW853UST+ review.

Reasonably Priced

One person who reviewed it reckoned that it was a bargain for the price. Pcmag.com wrote “And it comes with a wall mount, which makes it even more of a bargain” in their review of the Benq MW853UST+.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The MW853UST+ supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MW853UST+.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Hitachi CP-CX301WN[plb_3419087_price], the Acer H6517ST[plb_3929999_price], or the Asus B1MR[plb_2868776_price] which has better reviews.

The highest resolution supported by the MW853UST+ is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). In addition, this Benq multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). Across all comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MW853UST+ the resolution ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Offset

Projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW853UST+ have offsets of between 62% and 150%, and the average offset is 110%. With an offset of 144 percent, the MW853UST+ has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the MW853UST+.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The Benq MW853UST+ has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the multimedia projectors of this age and type. Most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW853UST+ only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The noise levels in economy mode of data projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MW853UST+ range from 26dB to 43dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB. At only 29 decibels, the MW853UST+ has a quite quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW853UST+.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MW853UST+ does not have a built-in speaker. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW853UST+ do have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the CP-WX3041WN[pl_3792952_price], or the CP-CX301WN[pl_3419087_price] both from Hitachi or the Acer H6517ST[plb_3929999_price].

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The MW853UST+ does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW853UST+ do support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the CP-WX3041WN[pl_3792952_price], or the CP-CX301WN[pl_3419087_price] both from Hitachi or the Acer H6517ST[plb_3929999_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The MW853UST+ does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MW853UST+ also do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to consider including the Epson EB-945H[plb_3077398_price], or the Hitachi CPX2541WN[plb_3419040_price].

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This multimedia projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.
