6 Reasons For
Benq Multimedia Projectors Have Good Reviews
Based on 2,084 expert and owner reviews, Benq has good reviews for its projectors. Benq also has good reviews specifically within its 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors range compared to other manufacturers.
The Benq MX507 supports 3D. Most of the other projectors of this age and spec also support 3D.
We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this projector and we think the Benq MS527[plb_3221474_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support 3D including the Benq MW529[plb_3221473_price], or the Acer X123PH[plb_3186331_price].
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
The Benq MX507 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX507.
We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Benq MS527[plb_3221474_price] which is cheaper; or the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the Benq MW529[plb_3221473_price] is also worth considering.
1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The highest resolution supported by the Benq MX507 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's 17% less resolution than the most common supported graphics resolutions of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). This Benq multimedia projector also supports a supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA). The best resolution of all comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX507 is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 640 x 480 (VGA).
Very High Horizontal Synchronization (max)
13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the MX507 have horizontal synchronization (max)s of between 100kHz and 110kHz, and the average horizontal synchronization (max) is 100kHz. When compared to other multimedia projectors that were released one year ago, the horizontal synchronization (max) of the Benq MX507 of 102 kilohertz is one of the highest.
Across all the projectors of this age and type the weights range from 1.8kg to 5.5kg, and the average weight is 2.9kg. At only 1.8 kilograms, the Benq MX507 is fairly light compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age.

6 Reasons Against
£34.66 Price Increase
In the last 53 days the MX507 has increased in price by £34.66.
Does Not Support Full HD
Like most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX507, the Benq MX507 does not support full HD.
Alternative projectors which also support full HD that you might also want to look at include the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price] which is also higher rated.
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
Most data projectors of this type and age do not support wi-Fi. The Benq MX507 is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.
Very Small Bulb Power
The bulb powers of comparable spec projectors that have been around for more than a year range from 190W to 310W, and the average bulb power is 220W. With a bulb power of only 190 Watts, the Benq MX507 has one of the smaller bulb powers amongst data projectors of this age.
+3 More reasons against
Very Low Number of Colours
The lowest number of colours of projectors of this spec and age is 1M, the highest is 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 750M. The Benq MX507 has one of the lower numbers of colours (only 1.07 million) amongst 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors of this age.
Quite Low RMS Rated Power
At only 2 Watts, the Benq MX507 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the MX507. The RMS rated powers of projectors of a comparable age and spec to the MX507 range from 2W to 20W.
5 Other reasons to consider the Benq MX507
Running Costs Are OK
Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the MX507 will cost £91 over 1 year to run, which is typical compared to the other 23 projectors of this age and spec.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when this data projector was released.
Average Projector Brightness
At 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX507 has a relatively typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the MX507.
There are a number of other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price].
If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Benq MS527[plb_3221474_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
Average Noise Level
The Benq MX507 has a relatively typical noise level (33 decibels) compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released more than a year ago.
We compared all the other 33dB noise level projectors to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the TW526E[pl_2549392_price], and the MS506[pl_3066021_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.
If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Benq MS630ST[plb_3140368_price] (33dB).
XGA (1024x768) Projector Native Resolution
The highest resolution of the Benq MX507 is XGA (1024x768). That's 23% less resolution than the most common projector native resolution of WXGA (1280x800).

Total running cost over 5 years
Running costs for this projector have been estimated based on other similar projectors. If you know how much electricity and water the Benq MX507uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this projector over 5 years will generate 0.45 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 12 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
