A Top Selling Projector
Across all projectors, the MX570 is one the top selling products currently on the market according to sales data from Amazon.
Benq Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews
13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors produced 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.

+5 More reasons for
One customer who reviewed it said that it was good value for money. Pcmag.com rated it 4 stars and wrote “Performance in a bright, modestly priced XGA data projector”.
The Benq MX570 supports 3D. Most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the MX570 also support 3D.
We compared all the other projectors which support 3D to this multimedia projector and we think the MX528[pl_3244494_price], the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price], and the TW526E[pl_2549392_price] all from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Has a Built-In Speaker(s)
Like most of the other projectors that are a comparable age to the MX570, the Benq MX570 has a built-in speaker(s).
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including because of it's better review score, the MX528[pl_3244494_price], the MS630ST[pl_3140368_price], or the TW526E[pl_2549392_price] all from Benq.
1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Supported Graphics Resolutions
The Benq MX570 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's over seven times the resolution of the most common supported graphics resolutions of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this multimedia projector). This Benq multimedia projector also supports a supported graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA).
A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) supported graphics resolutions is actually the best supported resolution amongst all similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than a year ago.
The worst supported resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector is 640 x 480 (VGA).
3 Reasons Against
Does Not Support Wi-Fi
The Benq MX570 does not support wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support wi-Fi.
Does Not Support Full HD
The Benq MX570 does not support full HD, although it is worth noting that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support full HD.
We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also support full HD including the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price].
Quite Dim Projector Brightness
With a projector brightness of only 3,200 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX570 has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss amongst comparable spec projectors of this age. Across all the comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago the projector brightnesss range from 3,000 ANSI lumens to 4,000 ANSI lumens.
We compared this projector to all the other 3,200 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think the Benq TW526E[plb_2549392_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a projector with a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the MW529[pl_3221473_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens), or the MX528[pl_3244494_price] (3,300 ANSI lumens) both from Benq which is also higher rated.
