This data projector received an expert rating of 60 out of 100 from PC Mag. The expert review sites don't rate this multimedia projector very highly.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW621 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Acer S1383, and the Optoma ML800 (£549.00) is also worth considering.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Benq MW721 (£543.79) is also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW621 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the MW820ST (£459.99), the MX819ST (£517.17), or the MS504 (£420.67) all from Benq.

If you want a multimedia projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the S1283 (3,100 ANSI lumens), or the S1383 (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Acer or the Benq MW824 (£579.37) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Average Noise Level

The Benq MW621 has a pretty standard noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 33dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available including a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Benq MX662 (£529.99) or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Benq MS504 (£420.67).

Projectors with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Benq MW721 (£543.79) (33dB).

Subpar Data-Image Quality

Does Not Support Full HD

It is worth considering other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson EH-TW5100 (£520.40), the Acer S1283, or the Benq MW820ST (£459.99) which is also higher rated.
