11 Reasons For

Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

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

Good Product Quality

One customer mentioned that it was good quality. Three years ago Pcmag.com gave it a rating of 70 out of 100 and said in their review on expert website PC Mag “The BenQ MX766 projector delivers more than acceptable data image quality, with a bright enough image to stand up to ambient light in a mid- to large-size conference room”.

Good Sound Quality

One customer who reviewed this projector concluded that it had good sound quality. It Reviews.com said in their Benq MX766 review on IT Reviews.com “Sound suitable for only a small room or a little larger”.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who purchased the Benq MX766 wrote that it had good picture quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX766 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MX766.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including the MW851, or the MX620 both from Benq or the Optoma DS328 which has better reviews.

Very Bright Projector Brightness

When compared to other projectors of this type and age, the projector brightness of the Benq MX766 of 4,000 ANSI lumens is one of the brightest.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the MW767 (£700.00) (4,200 ANSI lumens), or the MW769 (4,200 ANSI lumens) both from Benq which also has a higher rating.

10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Average

Two experts from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com have rated this multimedia projector on average 65%.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the MX766 support 3D image projection, however the Benq MX766 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the ES500, or the MX703 both from Benq or the Optoma DS328 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The Benq MX766 does not support Full HD projection, although keep in mind that most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX766 also do not support Full HD projection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection including the ES500, or the MS504 both from Benq or the Acer X133 (£275.00).
