7 Reasons For

Good Brand

Benq is one of the superior projector brands according to average expert and user reviews, and Benq also has good reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

Supports 3D

The Benq MS514 supports 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago also support 3D.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq MX505[plb_2024730_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MS514 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MS514 also have a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MS514 the projector brightnesss range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MS514 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MX600[plb_2024731_price].

If you would prefer a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the MW724[pl_2770285_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens), the MX723[pl_2818905_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens), or the MW769[pl_2953761_price] (4,200 ANSI lumens) all from Benq.

At only 32 decibels, the Benq MS514 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MS514.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 32dB noise level data projectors currently available including the Benq TW519[plb_1552764_price] which has better reviews.

If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MX806[plb_2515298_price] (32dB).
