£49.20 Price Drop
The price of the MX570 has dropped by £49.20 in the last 1 days.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Benq MX570 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX570.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the MX525 (£280.53), the TW526 (£319.98), or the MX507 (£277.98) all from Benq.
Supports 3D Image Projection
Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MX570, the Benq MX570 supports 3D image projection.
It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the X123PH (£299.99), the X133PWH (£297.97), or the X122 (£347.56) all from Acer which has better reviews.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution
The highest resolution supported by the Benq MX570 is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). In addition, this multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA).
This multimedia projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is actually the best supported resolution across all data projectors of this age and type.
Across comparable types of multimedia projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Benq MX570 is a three VGA (D-Sub) port data projector. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
When compared to other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than a year ago that we have checked the service life of lamp in economic mode of, the Benq MX570's service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours is one of the longest. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of similar spec data projectors that were released one year ago is 6,200h, and the service life of lamp in economic mode range from 500h to 10,000h.
100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This data projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to it.
With a width of only 283 millimeters, the Benq MX570 is one of the narrower data projectors of this type and age amongst projectors of this age. Across all the projectors that are a similar age to the MX570 the widths range from 280mm to 340mm.
At only 1.9 kilograms, the Benq MX570 is quite light compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MX570. The average weight of comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX570 is 2.9kg.
2 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Full HD Projection
The Benq MX570 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MX570 also do not support Full HD projection.
We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the X123PH (£299.99), or the X133PWH (£297.97) both from Acer or the Benq TW526 (£319.98) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The Benq MX570 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX570 also do not support WiFi connectivity.
4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX570
Running Costs Are Average
The average running cost of the MX570 is £94 over 1 year based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 34 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than a year ago.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Benq released the MX570.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX570 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX570.
Other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the TW526 (£319.98), or the MX525 (£280.53) both from Benq.
Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Benq MW724 (£349.00) (3,700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
