Not Cheap

Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years range in price from £230 to £1,599. We think that this data projector looks expensive compared to other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years.


Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

Benq released the MW843 in August 2014.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW843 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to this multimedia projector.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including because of their better review scores, the Benq MX768 (£916.61), or the Optoma DH1011 (£797.02).

Alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider include the Benq MX822ST (£871.34).

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MW843 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors of this type and age also do not support full HD.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a full HD and we think the Optoma DH1011 (£797.02) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Energy

Running Costs Are Very High

The MW843 has an average 1 year running cost of £110 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the most expensive 14% of all 81 multimedia projectors of a similar age and type.


Projector

WXGA (1280x800) Resolution

The Benq MW843 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). The resolution of all 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago ranges from SVGA (800x600) to 1080p (1920x1080).

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MW843 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to this data projector.

We compared this projector to all the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of its better review score, the Optoma DH1011 (£797.02) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Benq MW724 (£668.19) (3,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper).

Performance

Fairly Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of data projectors of a comparable age and type to this data projector is 26dB, the loudest is 40dB, and the average noise level is 33dB. With a noise level of 36 decibels, the Benq MW843 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Other 36dB noise level data projectors currently available that you might want to consider include the Benq MX768 (£916.61) which has better reviews.

Data projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the MX822ST (£871.34) (40dB), or the MW821ST (£999.99) (33dB) both from Benq.
