8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Benq 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors have good reviews on average and across all multimedia projectors Benq is one of the superior brands.

Supports 3D

The MW855UST supports 3D. Most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MW855UST do not support 3D.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including cheaper projectors such as the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price].

We compared all the other projectors which also support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price], or the Benq MW853UST+[plb_2893619_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MW855UST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this type and age.

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at include the NEC M303WS[plb_3113387_price], or the Hitachi CPAW2505[plb_3820160_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to look at including the Panasonic PT-VX425N[plb_3430009_price].
