Benq has good average ratings for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors as well as across its entire projector range.

£44.40 Price Drop

The MW855UST has dropped in price by £44.40 in the last fortnight.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MW855UST, the MW855UST supports 3D image projection.

There are a number of other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to look at including the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] which has better reviews; or the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], or the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The MW855UST has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also have a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker and we think the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] which has better reviews; or the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], and the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq MW855UST supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by projectors of this age and spec. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this multimedia projector. In addition, this data projector supports a graphics resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). The resolution of all comparable spec projectors that were released one year ago ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Fairly Big Offset

At 148 percent, the MW855UST has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the MW855UST. Across all the projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST the offsets range from 62% to 150%, and the average offset is 110%.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

At 20 Watts, the MW855UST has a quite high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The average RMS rated power of 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW855UST is 13W, and the RMS rated power range from 2W to 26W.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The MW855UST has more built-in speakers than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW855UST. This projector is a two built-in speaker projector compared to most of the projectors that are a comparable age to the MW855UST which only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Quite High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization

At 102 kilohertz, the MW855UST has a quite high maximum horizontal synchronization compared to most of the other data projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago the maximum horizontal synchronization range from 100kHz to 110kHz.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 29 decibels, the MW855UST has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW855UST. Across all the projectors that were released one year ago the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 43dB.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type support Full HD projection, however the Benq MW855UST does not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the NEC M322[plb_2268469_price] or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The MW855UST does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the MW855UST also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price], or the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price] both from Panasonic which is also cheaper.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

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

Chart Edit

Quite Low Number of Colours

The average number of colours of data projectors of a comparable age and type to the MW855UST is 930M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MW855UST, the number of colours of the MW855UST of only 1.07 million is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

With a service life of lamp in economic mode of only 4,000 hours, the MW855UST has one of the shorter service life of lamp in economic mode amongst projectors of this age. Across all the similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MW855UST the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 3,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 7,400h.

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

At only 3,000 hours, the MW855UST has a quite short lamp service life compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the MW855UST. The lamp service lives of comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MW855UST range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most projectors of this age and type have between one and three USB 2.0 ports, including the MW855UST which has one USB 2.0 port.

5 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW855UST

Running Costs Are OK

The MW855UST is typical compared to the other 82 projectors that were released more than a year ago that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the MW855UST will cost £107 over 1 year to run.

Released Over a Year Ago

Benq released the MW855UST over a year ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW855UST has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the MW855UST.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the CPWX3541WN[pl_3869046_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the CPX4041WN[pl_3393438_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Hitachi or the Panasonic PT-VW355N[plb_3496571_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of WXGA (1280x800), which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 34 decibels, the Benq MW855UST has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW855UST.

We compared all the other 34dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think the Benq W1350[plb_2750779_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative data projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Benq MX882UST[plb_3258682_price] (37dB).
