6 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

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

Supports 3D

The Benq MS517H supports 3D, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were launched in the last year.

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this projector and we think the Ms524A[pl_3423911_price], or the MS527E[pl_4019923_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD

The Benq MS517H supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the MS517H do not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Ms524A[pl_3423911_price], or the MS527E[pl_4019923_price] both from Benq.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MS517H has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for the last year.

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might also want to consider include the Ms524A[pl_3423911_price], or the MS527E[pl_4019923_price] both from Benq.

At only 28 decibels, the Benq MS517H has a fairly quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MS517H.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 1.9 kilograms, the Benq MS517H is quite light compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the MS517H. Across all the recently released similar spec multimedia projectors the weights range from 1.9kg to 5.5kg.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

The Benq MS517H has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all projectors that are a comparable age to the MS517H the resolution ranges from WVGA (854x480) (worst) to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) (best).
