Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other data projectors of this age and type, the Benq MS500+ does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support full HD including the Hitachi CP-WX3030WN (£598.76).

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Benq MS500+ has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 77% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution. The best resolution of all multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this projector is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is WVGA (854x480).
