9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked 2,080 user and expert reviews for Benq multimedia projectors and found that on average Benq has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Benq has good reviews specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The MX816ST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than two years also support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think the Benq MX768[plb_2298923_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D image projection including the MW821ST[pl_1521593_price], or the MW843[pl_2417382_price] both from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Benq MX816ST has a built-in speaker. Most of the other data projectors of a similar age and type to the MX816ST also have a built-in speaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX768[plb_2298923_price].

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might want to look at including the MW821ST[pl_1521593_price], or the MW843[pl_2417382_price] both from Benq.
