13 Reasons For

Benq Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

On average Benq 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all projectors built by Benq.

Supports 3D

The MH856UST supports 3D, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MH856UST which do not support 3D.

There are a number of other projectors which support 3D currently available which you might want to consider including the Benq MW883UST[plb_3181970_price], or the Acer H9505BD[plb_3806779_price] which is cheaper.

It is worth also looking at other projectors which also support 3D including the NEC M403H[plb_3078395_price].

Supports Full HD

The MH856UST supports full HD, unlike most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year which do not support full HD.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support full HD currently available including the Hitachi CP-TW2505[plb_3255162_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq W3000[plb_3190084_price] which has better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the NEC M403H[plb_3078395_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MH856UST has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the MH856UST also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq MX882UST[plb_3258682_price] which is cheaper.

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the NEC M403H[plb_3078395_price], or the Vivitek DW3321[plb_3066881_price].

1080p (1920x1080) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the MH856UST is 1080p (1920x1080). That's over two times the resolution of the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Projectors of a similar age and type to the MH856UST projector native resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Benq MH856UST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this projector). The worst resolution of all 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the MH856UST is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

The offsets of 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MH856UST range from 62% to 150%. When compared to other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the MH856UST that we have checked, the offset of the MH856UST of 150 percent is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The MH856UST has a quite high RMS rated power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MH856UST. The average RMS rated power of multimedia projectors that were released one year ago is 12W, and the RMS rated powers range from 2W to 20W.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The MH856UST has more number of built-in speakerss than most of the 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MH856UST. This multimedia projector is a two number of built-in speakers multimedia projector compared to most of the multimedia projectors of this age and spec which only have one number of built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

The MH856UST is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity projector.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

Most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MH856UST only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however the Benq MH856UST has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite High Horizontal Synchronization (max)

With a horizontal synchronization (max) of 102 kilohertz, the MH856UST has a fairly high horizontal synchronization (max) compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MH856UST. Projectors that are a similar age to the MH856UST have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 0.1kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 96kHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Bulb Power

The bulb powers of projectors that came out around the same time as the MH856UST range from 170W to 420W, and the average bulb power is 240W. At 280 Watts, the Benq MH856UST has a quite big bulb power compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MH856UST.

6 Reasons Against

£37.50 Price Increase

In the last few weeks the price of the MH856UST has increased by £37.50.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The MH856UST does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the PT-VW355N[pl_3496571_price], or the PT-VX425N[pl_3430009_price] both from Panasonic or the Epson EB-1420Wi[plb_2369727_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

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

Chart Edit

Very Short Service Life of Lamp

With a service life of lamp of only 3,000 hours, the MH856UST has one of the shorter service life of lamps amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of multimedia projectors that have been around for more than a year range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 5 kilograms, the MH856UST is fairly heavy compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the MH856UST.

Chart Edit

Quite Loud Noise Level (economic Mode)

The noise level (economic mode)s of projectors that have been available for more than a year range from 26dB to 43dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 30dB. With a noise level (economic mode) of 33 decibels, the MH856UST has one of the louder noise level (economic mode)s amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
