Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW769 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think because of their better review scores, the MS502, the MX703, and the MW523 all from Benq are also worth considering.

Video

Supports Full HD

The Benq MW769 supports full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to this multimedia projector do not support full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support full HD and we think because of their better review scores, the MS521, the MS512, and the MW665+ all from Benq are also worth considering.

Projector

Very Bright Projector Brightness

The projector brightnesses of comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to this multimedia projector range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of 4,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW769 has one of the brightest projector brightnesses amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Alternative 4,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available which you might want to look at include the MW767 (£1,230.34), or the MW769 both from Benq which and both of have better reviews.
