9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Based on 2,080 owner and expert reviews, Benq has good ratings for its projectors. Benq also has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors compared to other brands.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX662 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MX662 also have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the MW851[pl_2718428_price], and the MX620[pl_2024732_price] both from Benq or the Optoma ES556[plb_1818226_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

This multimedia projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX662 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. The average projector brightness of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MX662 is 3,000 ANSI lumens.

Alternative 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might also want to consider include the Acer P1276[plb_1563560_price], or the Benq MX822ST[plb_1495112_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the MX768[pl_2298923_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the MW769[pl_2298075_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens) both from Benq which also has a higher rating.

9 Reasons Against

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the ES500[pl_3258242_price], or the MX703[pl_2031057_price] both from Benq or the Optoma DS328[plb_1946553_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the ES500[pl_3258242_price], or the MS504[pl_2024728_price] both from Benq or the Acer X133[plb_2780263_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Benq MX662 does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support WiFi connectivity.
