9 Reasons For

One Industry Award

One expert review site concluded that this projector was good. This multimedia projector received a "4 Star" award from 01net.com.

Expert Reviews Are Good

Based on four expert reviews from sites including hifitest.de, 01net.com, pcworld.pl and overpress.it this multimedia projector has an average expert rating of 80 out of 100.

Good Brand

Benq is one of the superior projector brands according to average user and expert reviews, and Benq also has good reviews for its 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The W710ST supports 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the W710ST do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D image projection and we think the Optoma ML550 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago, the W710ST has a built-in speaker.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the EB-W18, and the 1975W both from Epson is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The W710ST supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors that have been around for a similar time to the W710ST . 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this Benq projector. Across all similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the W710ST the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of a similar age and type to the W710ST range from 28dB to 49dB, and the average noise level is 35dB. The W710ST has one of the quieter noise levels (only 31 decibels) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Offset

Similar spec projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W710ST have offsets of between 8% and 140%. With an offset of 136 percent, the W710ST has a fairly big offset compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

At only 28 decibels, the W710ST has a fairly quiet noise level in economy mode compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec. Across all the 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for around the same time as the W710ST the noise levels in economy mode range from 26dB to 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 30dB.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the W710ST do not support Full HD projection. The W710ST is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the NEC NP-M282 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the W710ST , the W710ST does not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq W1500 which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 2,500 ANSI lumens, the W710ST has a fairly dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to the W710ST . The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors that were released more than two years ago is 300 ANSI lumens and the brightest is 12,000 ANSI lumens.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the NEC NP-M282 (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the W710ST which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Only One Audio in Port

The W710ST is a one audio in port multimedia projector. Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago have between one and two audio in ports.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq W710ST

Running Costs Are OK

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the W710ST will cost £104 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 136 multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec.

Chart

Released Over Four Years Ago

Benq released the W710ST over four years ago.

720p (1280x720) Native Projector Resolution

The W710ST has a maximum resolution of 720p (1280x720). That's 10% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.
