10 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Benq data projectors and also specifically for Benq 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors and found that in both cases Benq had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the MX850UST, the MX850UST supports 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia 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.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Benq MX850[plb_2718425_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The MX850UST has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MX850UST also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to look at include the Benq MX518[plb_1521707_price] which is cheaper; or the Optoma DX346[plb_2212801_price] which has better reviews.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this data projector and we think the Benq MX850[plb_2718425_price] is also worth considering.
