8 Reasons For

Owner Reviews Are Excellent

People who bought this projector rated this multimedia projector as fantastic on average.

Benq Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Based on 2,084 user and expert reviews, Benq has good ratings for its data projectors. Benq also has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MS504 which do not support full HD, the Benq MS504 supports full HD.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS504

Released Over Two Years Ago

Average Projector Brightness
