That's over six times the resolution of the most frequently found supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this data projector). Across all projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW712 the best resolution is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Fairly Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW712 have service life of lamp (economic mode)s of between 3,500h and 30,000h. The Benq MW712 has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s (6,500 hours) amongst 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

5 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to it.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the MW712 do not support full HD. The Benq MW712 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Epson 1975W (£1,511.44) is also worth considering.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Benq W1500, or the Epson PowerLite 1222 which also has a higher rating.
