Three years ago expert website Pcmag.com wrote “Image quality suitable for typical business” in their review of this projector. Itproportal.com rated this projector 70 out of 100 and said also three years ago “The BenQ MX618ST is a short-throw data projector in the same family as the BenQ MS616ST, offering a slightly better image quality as befits its higher resolution” in their review of the Benq MX618ST.

Good 3D Picture Quality

Some customers thought it had a good 3D picture quality. Pcmag.com mentioned on expert website PC Mag three years ago “It is portable, 3D ready” in their review of the Benq MX618ST.

Alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available which you might want to look at include the MW870UST[pl_1859432_price], or the SX914[pl_1999632_price] both from Benq or the Smart UF75W[plb_2240647_price] which has better reviews.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the VPL-EX295[pl_2403651_price], or the VPL-CW255[pl_2526290_price] both from Sony or the Epson PowerLite 61P[plb_2362344_price] which has better reviews.
