8 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Projector Reviews

We checked 2,080 expert and user reviews for Benq projectors and found that on average Benq has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Benq has good reviews specifically within its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors range.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the MX852, the Benq MX852 has a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the W1400[pl_1731595_price], and the TH682[pl_2448398_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker including the Epson EB-965[plb_2017458_price].

The resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MX852 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) (best).

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 20 Watts, the Benq MX852 has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. Across all the projectors of a comparable age and type to the MX852 the RMS rated power range from 1W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The Benq MX852 is a two built-in speaker projector. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MX852 have between one and two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the MX852 have offsets of between 8% and 140%. With an offset of 140 percent, the Benq MX852 has one of the biggest offsets amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Benq MX852 does not support 3D image projection, although it is worth noting that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX852 also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Acer P5307[plb_1569831_price] or the W1400[pl_1731595_price], or the TH682[pl_2448398_price] both from Benq.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MX852, the Benq MX852 does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the W1400[pl_1731595_price], the TH682[pl_2448398_price], or the W1080[pl_1495063_price] all from Benq which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the MX852, the Benq MX852 does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Benq MX852 has a quite low number of colours compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the MX852. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MX852 the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 5 kilograms, the Benq MX852 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for more than two years. The average weight of similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago is 4.6kg, and the weights range from 360g to 54kg.

5 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX852

Running Costs Are OK

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the MX852 is £97, which is typical compared to the other 136 multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Released Over Two Years Ago

Benq released the MX852 over two years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX852 has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MX852.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Epson EB-945[plb_2017456_price] or you might consider a higher rated multimedia projector such as the Benq MH680[plb_1998672_price] are also worth considering.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-TW340E[plb_3140214_price] (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the NEC M362[plb_2268470_price] (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Average Noise Level

At 33 decibels, the Benq MX852 has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the W1080[pl_1495063_price], and the W1400[pl_1731595_price] both from Benq or the Acer K335[plb_1598465_price] is also worth considering.
