10 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average 1 year running cost of the MX528 is only £91 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 22% of all 23 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year.

Benq Has Good Data Projector Reviews

13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors manufactured by Benq have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors) and found that Benq also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the MX528, the Benq MX528 supports 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors which support 3D currently available including the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MS630ST[plb_3140368_price] which is cheaper.

There are a number of other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at including the Benq MX570[plb_2417268_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the MX528, the Benq MX528 has a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to look at include a cheaper data projector such as the Benq MS630ST[plb_3140368_price] or you might consider a higher rated data projector such as the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price].

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq MX570[plb_2417268_price].

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to the MX528 the projector brightnesss range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 4,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,300 ANSI lumens. At 3,300 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX528 has a fairly bright projector brightness compared to most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the MX528.

We compared all the other 3,300 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think cheaper projectors such as the MS527[pl_3221474_price], and the MW529[pl_3221473_price] both from Benq is also worth considering.
