BenQ MS524A DLP 3D Projector Review

8 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors produced by Benq have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Benq also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other new data projectors, the Benq Ms524A supports 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to consider include the MS517H[pl_3346531_price], the TW529[pl_3287890_price], or the MX528E[pl_4013909_price] all from Benq.

Supports Full HD

The Benq Ms524A supports full HD, unlike most of the other data projectors that have been around for the last year which do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the MS517H[pl_3346531_price], the TW529[pl_3287890_price], or the MX528E[pl_4013909_price] all from Benq is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for the last year, the Benq Ms524A has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the MS517H[pl_3346531_price], or the TW529[pl_3287890_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

This data projector supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA)|1600 x 1200 (UXGA), which is the most frequently supported supported graphics resolutions on projectors that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite High Vertical Synchronization (max)

The Benq Ms524A has a fairly high vertical synchronization (max) (120 kilohertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for the last year. The vertical synchronization (max)s of recently released projectors range from 0.092kHz to 120kHz.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The Benq Ms524A has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for the last year. Most of the newly released 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, however this multimedia projector has three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The Benq Ms524A has one of the longer service life of lamps (4,500 hours) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The service life of lamps of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for the last year range from 3,000h to 20,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 6,500h.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Price Has Recently Increased by £50.73

The price of the Ms524A has increased by £50.73 in the last 22 days.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Benq Ms524A does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other latest 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors also do not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only SVGA (800x600) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the Benq Ms524A is SVGA (800x600). That's 39% less resolution than a XGA (1024x768) data projector, which is the most common resolution. Across all recently released similar spec projectors the best resolution is DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) and the worst is WVGA (854x480).

Chart Edit

Quite High Power Consumption (PowerSave)

Latest 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors have power consumption (PowerSave)s of between 200W and 270W. With a power consumption (PowerSave) of 220 Watts, the Benq Ms524A has a fairly high power consumption (PowerSave) compared to most of the other new 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq Ms524A

Running Costs Are Average

The Ms524A is typical compared to the other 13 recently released comparable spec projectors that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the Ms524A will cost £91 over 1 year to run.

Released Ten Months Ago

It was ten months ago when Benq released the Ms524A.

Average Projector Brightness

The Benq Ms524A has a pretty typical projector brightness (3,300 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the Ms524A.
