10 Reasons For

Just Released Two Months Ago

This projector is one of the newest projectors to be released.

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors manufactured by Benq have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all multimedia projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors) and found that Benq also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other recently released similar spec projectors, the Benq MX704 supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last year, the Benq MX704 has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightness of comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX704 range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 4,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX704 has one of the brightest projector brightness amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Benq MX704 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). 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 data projector).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is in fact the best supported resolution across all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for the last year.

The worst supported resolution amongst comparable types of projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 31 decibels, the Benq MX704 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other recently released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors. Across all the latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors the noise levels range from 28dB to 33dB.

Chart Edit

Two HDMI Ports

The Benq MX704 is a two HDMI port multimedia projector. Most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors only have one HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Very Big Lamp Power

Across all the new 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors the lamp power range from 190W to 240W, and the average lamp power is 200W. When compared to other newly released 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that we have assessed, the lamp power of the Benq MX704 of 240 Watts is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Very Low Power Consumption in Economy Mode

At only 216 Watts, the Benq MX704 has a quite low power consumption in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors that were launched in the last year. The average power consumption in economy mode of data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX704 is 220W, and the power consumption in economy mode range from 210W to 220W.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MX704 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors also do not support Full HD projection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other latest similar spec multimedia projectors, the Benq MX704 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MX704 is XGA (1024x768). That's 62% less resolution than the most common native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080). The worst resolution of all recently released similar spec data projectors is WVGA (854x480) and the best is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160).

Chart Edit

Very Short Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out in the last 12 months range from 3,000h to 5,000h, and the average lamp service life is 4,400h. With a lamp service life of only 3,000 hours, the Benq MX704 has one of the shorter lamp service lives amongst similar spec multimedia projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

The lightest 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector that has been available for the last year is 1.9kg heavy, the heaviest is 3kg, and the average weight is 2.1kg. With a weight of 3 kilograms, the Benq MX704 is very heavy compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX704.

Chart Edit

Very Wide

The narrowest projector that is a comparable age to the MX704 is 280mm wide, the widest is 340mm, and the average width is 290mm. The Benq MX704 is very wide (331 millimeters) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MX704.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The cheapeast latest 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that we found costs £231 and the most expensive costs £429. We think that this Benq projector looks expensive for a similar spec projector that was launched in the last 12 months.

High Running Costs

The MX704 has an average 1 year running cost of £116 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run latest projectors.
