Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the Benq MW811 does not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a full HD and we think the VPL-VW500ES, or the VPL-VW600ES both from Sony are also worth considering.

Average Projector Brightness

The Benq MW811 has a relatively average projector brightness (2,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this data projector.

There are a number of other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available that you might want to look at including because of their better review scores, the Epson EH-TW6600 (£1,303), or the LG SA560 (£780.02).

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Optoma GT1080 (£584.99) (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.

Performance

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the Benq MW811 has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of this type and age.

We compared all the other 32dB noise level projectors to this data projector and we think the EH-TW8100 (£1,450), and the EH-TW6100W (£1,599) both from Epson or the LG SA560 (£780.02) which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.
