Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

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

One person reckoned that the product had good technical guidance.

Supports Full HD Projection

The MX819ST supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX819ST which do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth considering alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Acer X1373[plb_2256532_price].

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Benq MX819ST supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Acer X123[plb_2717080_price], or the Benq MS502[plb_1385309_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma DS325[plb_1920804_price] which has better reviews.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MX819ST, the MX819ST has a built-in speaker.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at include a cheaper projector such as the Benq MS502[plb_1385309_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Optoma DX325[plb_1915714_price].

Other projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to look at include the Optoma DX330[plb_1724110_price].
