100 - 240V AC Input Voltage
This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on projectors of a comparable age and spec to it.
£86.33 Price Drop
In the last 56 days the MX819ST has dropped in price by £86.33.
+6 More reasons for
Supports Full HD Projection
Unlike most of the other projectors of this age and type which do not support Full HD projection, the Benq MX819ST supports Full HD projection.
Alternative projectors which support Full HD projection currently available which you might also want to look at include a cheaper data projector such as the Benq MW820ST (£459.99) or you might consider a higher scoring data projector such as the Optoma DH1011 (£726.14).
Supports 3D Image Projection
The MX819ST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago also support 3D image projection.
There are a number of other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to consider including the Benq MW663 (£580.08) which has a better Rating.
Other projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to consider include the MX842 (£573.44), or the MW843 both from Benq.
Has a Built-In Speaker
The MX819ST has a built-in speaker. Most of the other projectors of this age and type also have a built-in speaker.
It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Optoma EW556 (£531.39) or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq MW663 (£580.08).
There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker which you might also want to look at including the Benq MX842 (£573.44).
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution
This projector supports a graphics resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA)|640 x 480 (VGA), which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to it.
If the resolution of this Benq projector is too low for you then you might also want to consider the Optoma DH1011 (£726.14) (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated)|1280 x 720 (HD 720 and higher rated)|1280 x 768 (WXGA and higher rated)|1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and higher rated)|640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated)|800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated) or the Optoma EW556 (£531.39) (1024 x 768 (XGA and cheaper)|1280 x 1024 (SXGA and cheaper)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA and cheaper)|640 x 480 (VGA and cheaper)|800 x 600 (SVGA and cheaper) and cheaper).
At only 287.3 millimeters, the Benq MX819ST is quite narrow compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX819ST. Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX819ST the widths range from 260mm to 340mm.
2 Reasons Against
Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity
The MX819ST does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX819ST also do not support WiFi connectivity.
Pricey Compared to Other Similar Spec Multimedia Projectors That Were Released More Than Two Years Ago
We think this Benq projector looks expensive for a projector of a similar spec and age. We checked 47 similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago and they range in price from £102 to £1,000.
5 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX819ST
Running Costs Are OK
Based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the MX819ST will cost £91 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 56 projectors of this age and type.
Released Over Three Years Ago
It was over three years ago when Benq released the MX819ST.
Average Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MX819ST has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.
We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this data projector and we think the Benq MW663 (£580.08) which has a better Rating; or the Benq MW820ST (£459.99) which is cheaper are also worth considering.
If this data projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Optoma EW556 (£531.39) (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper); or the Optoma DH1011 (£726.14) (3,500 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
+3 Other reasons
XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution
This projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Benq MX620.
If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might also want to look at the Benq MW523 (WXGA (1280x800)), or the Optoma EW556 (£531.39) (WXGA (1280x800)) which is also cheaper.
Average Noise Level
With a noise level of 32 decibels, the MX819ST has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the MX819ST.
We compared this projector to all the other 32dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Benq MW820ST (£459.99) which is cheaper; or the TW519 (£426.97), and the MW663 (£580.08) both from Benq which has a better Rating are also worth considering.
