9 Reasons For

Benq Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of multimedia projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector brand. On average data projectors from Benq have good ratings from users and experts.

Supports 3D

Unlike most of the other similar spec data projectors that were launched more than two years ago which do not support 3D, the MW870UST supports 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support 3D and we think because of it's better review score, the Optoma HD83 is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MW870UST, the MW870UST has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD which has better reviews is also worth considering.

The Benq MW870UST is a four USB 2.0 ports quantity projector. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age only have between one and three USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very High RMS Rated Power

The RMS rated powers of multimedia projectors of this spec and age range from 1W to 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 8W. The MW870UST has a very high RMS rated power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MW870UST.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The MW870UST is a two number of built-in speakers projector. Most of the other projectors that were launched more than two years ago only have one number of built-in speakers.

The MW870UST is a three VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity projector. Most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the MW870UST only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Very Big Offset

The MW870UST has a quite big offset (125 percent) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the MW870UST. Across all the comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the MW870UST the offsets range from 10% to 130%.

6 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most frequently found AC input voltage on similar spec projectors that have been around for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MW870UST does not support full HD. Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering alternative projectors which also support full HD including the Optoma HD83, or the Panasonic PT-FX400U which also has a higher rating.

The MW870UST does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and spec also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in other data projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Gigabyte BRIX (£108.20) which also has a higher rating.

With a service life of lamp of only 2,500 hours, the MW870UST has a quite short service life of lamp compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite Home Cinema 730HD, or the EH-TW490 both from Epson.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the S316 (£322.89) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the HD26 (£499.00) (3,200 ANSI lumens) both from Optoma which also has a higher rating.
