7 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 2,084 expert and owner reviews for Benq projectors and found that on average Benq has good ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Benq has good ratings specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range.

Supports Full HD

Unlike most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support full HD, the MW820ST supports full HD.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support full HD and we think a cheaper projector such as the Benq MX806[plb_2515298_price], and the Acer S1283[plb_2575478_price] or you might consider a higher rated projector such as the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] are also worth considering.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other comparable spec projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW820ST, the MW820ST supports 3D.

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available that you might want to consider including the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price], or the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] which has better reviews.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support 3D including the Benq MX842[plb_2417267_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MW820ST has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors that were launched around the same time as the MW820ST also have a built-in speaker(s).

Other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper projector such as the Acer P1276[plb_1563560_price] or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price].

It is worth also looking at other multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq MX842[plb_2417267_price].

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions

The MW820ST supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) data projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of a similar spec and age to the MW820ST. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this projector. The best resolution of all 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The Benq MW820ST has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768).

A WXGA (1280x800) projector native resolution is in fact the best resolution across all projectors of this age and type.

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

Quite High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,070 million, the MW820ST has one of the higher numbers of colours amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age. The average number of colours of 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years is 770M, and the numbers of colours range from 1M to 1,100M.

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most data projectors of this age and type do not support wi-Fi. The MW820ST is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This data projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is typical of many data projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Offset

At only 110 percent, the MW820ST has a fairly small offset compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the MW820ST. The smallest offset of projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW820ST is 100% and the biggest is 160%.

4 Other reasons to consider the Benq MW820ST

Running Costs Are Average

Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the 1 year running cost of the MW820ST is £91, which is typical compared to the other 78 projectors of this age and type.

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Benq projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MW820ST has a pretty standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MW820ST.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] which has better reviews.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the S1283[pl_2575478_price] (3,100 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the P1276[pl_1563560_price] (3,500 ANSI lumens and cheaper) both from Acer.

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the MW820ST has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 32dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Benq MX819ST[plb_1552200_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
