Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to this projector, the MW870UST does not support full HD.

Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might want to look at include the VPL-VW500ES, or the VPL-VW600ES both from Sony.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the MW870UST has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to this projector.

If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Optoma X315 (£599.21) (3,200 ANSI lumens), or the Casio XJ-H2600 (£1,426.98) (3,500 ANSI lumens).

Performance

Average Noise Level

The MW870UST has a fairly average noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this multimedia projector.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other 33dB noise level projectors and we think the Infocus IN1110A (£539.56) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has an On Screen Display (OSD)

Networking

Has an Ethernet LAN

The Benq MW870UST has an Ethernet LAN, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that came out around the same time as this projector do not have an Ethernet LAN.

Packaging Content

Has a Handheld Remote Control

Energy

High Running Costs

The average running cost of the MW870UST is £107 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run projectors of this age and spec.
