Good Brand

Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good ratings on average and across all data projectors Benq is one of the superior manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Benq MX850 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the MX850 also support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] which is cheaper; or the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] which has better reviews.

Other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection that you might want to look at include the Benq MX850UST[plb_1454745_price].
