That's over seven times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This data projector also supports a graphics resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA).
This projector's resolution (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)) is in fact the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.
The worst supported resolution amongst similar types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Benq MX570 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MX570. Most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released one year ago only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.
Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode
13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MX570 have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 500h and 10,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,000h. With a service life of lamp in economic mode of 10,000 hours, the Benq MX570 has one of the longer service life of lamp in economic mode amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.
100V AC Input Voltage
This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as it.
Quite Long Lamp Service Life
The lamp service lives of comparable spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MX570 range from 2,000h to 6,000h. With a lamp service life of 4,500 hours, the Benq MX570 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst similar spec projectors of this age.
Quite Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode
Projectors of this age and type have power consumption in economy mode of between 190W and 340W. With a power consumption in economy mode of only 220 Watts, the Benq MX570 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other data projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX570.
Data projectors of this age and type have widths of between 280mm and 340mm. At only 283 millimeters, the Benq MX570 is quite narrow compared to most of the other projectors that were released one year ago.
Across all the projectors that were released more than a year ago the weights range from 1.8kg to 5.5kg. The Benq MX570 is one of the lighter similar spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX570 (only 1.9 kilograms) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX570
Average Running Costs
The average running cost of the MX570 is £94 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 24 data projectors of this type and age.
Released Over a Year Ago
This 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector was released over a year ago.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX570 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the MX570.
We compared all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this data projector and we think because of it's better review score, the MX525[pl_2415515_price], and the TW526[pl_2549392_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.
