7 Reasons For
Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews
Benq has good average reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire data projector range compared to other brands.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Benq MX507 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than a year ago.
There are a number of other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper data projectors such as the Benq MS524 (£359.39).
Other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the MX525 (£280.53), or the TW526 (£319.98) both from Benq.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Benq MX507 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MX507.
We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Acer X133, and the Benq MS524 (£359.39) which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer X122 (£347.56).
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Benq MX507 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MX507. Most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MX507 only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MX507 have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 100kHz and 110kHz. When compared to other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MX507 that we have checked, the Benq MX507's maximum horizontal synchronization of 102 kilohertz is one of the highest.
With a width of only 283 millimeters, the Benq MX507 is quite narrow compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MX507 the widths range from 280mm to 340mm.
+2 More reasons for
When compared to other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MX507 that we have assessed, the Benq MX507's weight of only 1.8 kilograms is one of the lightest. The average weight of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX507 is 2.8kg, and the weights range from 1.8kg to 5.5kg.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Benq MX507 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago also do not support Full HD projection.
There are a number of alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection which you might want to consider including the X133, or the X112H (£178.00) both from Acer.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Benq MX507 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other data projectors that were released more than a year ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Small Lamp Power
The Benq MX507 has one of the smaller lamp power (only 190 Watts) amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age. The average lamp power of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MX507 is 220W, and the lamp power range from 190W to 310W.
Quite Low Number of Colours
When compared to other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MX507, the number of colours of the Benq MX507 of only 1.07 million is one of the lowest. The average number of colours of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MX507 is 910M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.
+2 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Power
The RMS rated power of projectors of a comparable type and age to the MX507 range from 2W to 20W. With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Benq MX507 has one of the lower RMS rated power amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
6 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX507
Average Running Costs
The MX507 is typical compared to the other 37 projectors of a similar spec and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the MX507 will cost £91 over 1 year to run.
Released Over a Year Ago
This 13000:1 contrast ratio data projector has been on the market for over a year.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Benq MX507 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).
If the resolution of this data projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to consider the Acer X133 (1280 x 800 (WXGA and cheaper)|1920 x 1200 (WUXGA and cheaper) and cheaper), or the Benq MS524 (£359.39) (1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper) and cheaper).
+4 Other reasons
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX507 has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the MX507.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Benq MS524 (£359.39).
Average Noise Level
The Benq MX507 has a pretty standard noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
If you would consider a data projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MS524 (£359.39) (32dB and cheaper).
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
This data projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many data projectors of a comparable spec and age to it.
If the resolution of this Benq multimedia projector is not high enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer X133 (WXGA (1280x800 and cheaper) and cheaper).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Benq MX507uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.45 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
