Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MS512 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MX600 is also worth considering.

Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Benq MS512 has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is actually the worst resolution amongst all comparable spec multimedia projectors that are a similar age to this projector.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MS512 has a relatively average projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.

We compared all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq MX505, and the Optoma DH1011 (£797.02) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Acer S1283 (3,100 ANSI lumens).
