12 Reasons For

Best Seller

Across all multimedia projectors, the MS506 is one the top selling products currently available for purchase.

Benq Has Good Data Projector Reviews

We checked 2,085 expert and owner reviews for Benq data projectors and found that on average Benq has good reviews compared to other brands. We also found that Benq has good reviews specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range.

Good Size

Two Benq MS506 reviewers mentioned in their reviews that the product was compact. One Benq MS506 reviewer concluded that it was good structurally.

Easy to Use

One customer who reviewed the Benq MS506 considered that it was easy to use. Brian Copestake rated the product 4 stars and he wrote “Compact easy to use good definition on the screen” in his Benq MS506 review. One person wrote that this projector was easy to setup. Legendary mentioned in their review of this projector “*** Pro’s *** - Quick and easy to setup” .

Reasonably Priced

One customer who purchased the Benq MS506 thought it was good value for money. In December Amazon Customer wrote on Amazon “Very good price” in their review.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who reviewed the Benq MS506 said that it had clear images. Legendary gave it a rating of 4 stars and wrote on Amazon “Very bright and clear image”.

Nice Design

One customer who reviewed it thought it was a good design. Legendary gave the Benq MS506 a score of 80 out of 100 and said “Fairly compact design”.

Robust

One customer said in their reviews that it was well made. Last year Legendary scored this projector 80 out of 100 and said “Solid construction” in their review.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS506, the Benq MS506 supports 3D.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a 3D and we think the Acer X112H[plb_2741930_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MS506 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The Benq MS506 supports a maximum resolution of 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 resolution of all projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MS506 ranges from 640 x 480 (VGA) (worst) to 4096 x 2160 (best).

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the MS506 range from 1.8kg to 5.5kg. With a weight of only 1.8 kilograms, the Benq MS506 is one of the lighter projectors of this spec and age amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Poor Connectivity

Several Benq MS506 owners who reviewed this projector reckoned that it was not good in terms of HDMI connections. Legendary mentioned in their review of this projector “Would have been so much better with a HDMI port” but despite that they gave the Benq MS506 a score of 80 out of 100. Legendary also mentioned “Lack of HDMI port – comes with VGA”.

Price Increase of £23.21

The price of the MS506 has increased by £23.21 in the last 17 days.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MS506 does not support full HD. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the Acer X112H[plb_2741930_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Benq MS506 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq MS506 is SVGA (800x600). That's 53% less resolution than a WXGA (1280x800) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution amongst all similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year.

A WXGA (1280x800) projector native resolution is the best resolution amongst similar types of projector.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as the MS506 have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 680M. With a number of colours of only 1.07 million, the Benq MS506 has a fairly low number of colours compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MS506.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MS506

Running Costs Are Average

The MS506 is typical compared to the other 24 data projectors of this type and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the MS506 will cost £91 over 1 year to run.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MS506 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to consider the Acer X112H[plb_2741930_price] (27dB).
