Projector

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX520 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Benq MW663 which has better reviews.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to consider the Benq MW526 (£353.07) (3,200 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.

Performance

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the Benq MX520 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other 32dB noise level data projectors to this data projector and we think the MS517 (£257.99), and the MW663 both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.
