7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Benq is one of the superior projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Benq also has good ratings for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MX823, the Benq MX823 supports 3D image projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MX522[plb_2029720_price] is also worth considering.
