Projector

Only SVGA (800x600) Resolution

The Benq Ms524A has a maximum resolution of SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) multimedia projector, which is the most common resolution.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is in fact the worst resolution across all data projectors of this spec and age.

A WXGA (1280x800) projector native resolution is the best resolution across comparable types of projector.
