8 Reasons For
Benq Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews
On average Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all multimedia projectors built by Benq.
Supports 3D Image Projection
The Benq MX507 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the MX507 also support 3D image projection.
We compared all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Acer X112H[plb_2741930_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Benq MX525[plb_2415515_price], or the Acer X133PWH[plb_3034973_price] is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker
Like most of the other similar spec projectors that came out more than a year ago, the Benq MX507 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 because of it's better review score, the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price].
We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the MX525[pl_2415515_price], or the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price] both from Benq.
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however the Benq MX507 has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Very High Maximum Horizontal Synchronization
The Benq MX507 has a very high maximum horizontal synchronization (102 kilohertz) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age. 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago have maximum horizontal synchronization of between 100kHz and 110kHz.
100V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than a year.
+3 More reasons for
At only 283 millimeters, the Benq MX507 is quite narrow compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MX507. The average width of similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the MX507 is 300mm.
The weights of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX507 range from 1.8kg to 5.5kg. At only 1.8 kilograms, the Benq MX507 is fairly light compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MX507.
6 Reasons Against
Price Increase of £34.66
The MX507 has increased in price by £34.66 in the last 6 days.
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MX507, the Benq MX507 does not support Full HD projection.
It is worth considering other data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price]; or the Acer X112H[plb_2741930_price].
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Benq MX507 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec projectors that came out around the same time as the MX507 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Very Small Lamp Power
At only 190 Watts, the Benq MX507 has a quite small lamp power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX507. The average lamp power of comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the MX507 is 220W.
+3 More reasons against
Very Low Number of Colours
Projectors of a comparable type and age to the MX507 have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 890M. The Benq MX507 has a fairly low number of colours (only 1.07 million) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago.
Very Low RMS Rated Power
At only 2 Watts, the Benq MX507 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and type. The lowest RMS rated power of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago is 2W and the highest is 20W.
6 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX507
OK Running Costs
Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the MX507 is £91, which is typical compared to the other 24 data projectors of a similar age and spec.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Benq released the MX507.
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) (which is also supported by this projector).
+4 Other reasons
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX507 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX507.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq TW526[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews.
Average Noise Level
The Benq MX507 has a fairly average noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
Alternative 33dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the TW526[pl_2549392_price], or the MS506[pl_3066021_price] both from Benq.
Multimedia projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Benq MX525[plb_2415515_price] (33dB).
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
The Benq MX507 has a maximum resolution of XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) projector, which is the most common resolution.

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.
