We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average Benq projectors have good reviews from experts and users.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Unlike most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW870UST which do not support 3D image projection, the MW870UST supports 3D image projection.

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW870UST has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the EH-TW490 (£414.95), and the PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD both from Epson is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the HD26 (£499.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the H181X (£399.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
