Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MX618ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this multimedia projector.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were launched more than two years ago, the Benq MX618ST does not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the VPL-VW500ES, or the VPL-VW600ES both from Sony or the Barco PJWU-101B are also worth considering.
