7 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Benq has good average reviews for its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors as well as across its entire projector range compared to other manufacturers.

Unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as the MW817ST which do not support wi-Fi, the Benq MW817ST supports wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Supports 3D

The MW817ST supports 3D, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available that you might want to look at include the Benq MX600[plb_2024731_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW817ST, the MW817ST has a built-in speaker(s).

Chart Edit

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the Benq MW817ST is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution supported by similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW817ST. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. The best resolution of all projectors of a comparable age and type to the MW817ST is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the MW817ST is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

This data projector's resolution (WXGA (1280x800)) is in fact the best resolution across all multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the MW817ST.

A SVGA (800x600) projector native resolution is the worst resolution amongst similar types of data projector.

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantitys

The MW817ST has more VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys than most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MW817ST. This multimedia projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity multimedia projector compared to most of the 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW817ST which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

The MW817ST does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW817ST also do not support full HD.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

At 36 decibels, the MW817ST has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MW817ST. The average noise level of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 33dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 40dB.

Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many projectors of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

Across all the comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the MW817ST the offsets range from 100% to 160%, and the average offset is 120%. With an offset of only 110 percent, the MW817ST has a quite small offset compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The average service life of lamp (economic mode) of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MW817ST is 6,100h, and the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 3,000h to 10,000h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of only 5,000 hours, the MW817ST has one of the shorter service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst comparable spec data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in

Most data projectors of this spec and age have one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in, including the MW817ST which has one component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Lamp Power (economic Mode)

Across all the projectors of this age and spec the lamp power (economic mode)s range from 3,000W to 11,000W, and the average lamp power (economic mode) is 6,700W. The Benq MW817ST has one of the dimmer lamp power (economic mode)s (only 5,000 Watts) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.

3 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW817ST

Running Costs Are Average

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the MW817ST is £96, which is typical compared to the other 78 multimedia projectors of this type and age.

Released Over Four Years Ago

Benq released the MW817ST over four years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MW817ST has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the MW817ST.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq MW663[plb_1474011_price].
