Reviews

Good Brand

Based on 1,989 expert and owner reviews (including 66 verified purchases), Benq has good ratings for its multimedia projectors. Benq also has good ratings specifically for its 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors. 95% of those that bought a Benq data projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.

Poor Expert Reviews

This multimedia projector received a score of 60% from expert review site IT Reviews.com. This means that projector experts really don't rate this 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projector very highly.


Good Picture Quality

One owner said in their reviews that it had good colour saturation. Two years ago Justin wrote on Bhphotovideo.com “It's extremely bright colors are excellent” in his review of the Benq MX662.


Projector

Quite Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of a comparable spec and age to this projector the projector brightnesses range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens. At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX662 has a quite bright projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to this projector.

We compared all the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors to this projector and we think the Acer P1276 (£440.18), and the Benq MW721 (£543.79) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

The Benq MX662 is 3D-ready, as are most of the other comparable spec data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MX662 does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering other projectors which also support full HD including the Epson EH-TW5100 (£538.07), the Acer S1283, or the Benq MW820ST (£459.99) which also has a higher rating.

We compared all the other 33dB noise level multimedia projectors to this projector and we think the Benq MW721 (£543.79) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Multimedia

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX662 does not have a built-in speaker(s), unlike most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and type to this data projector which have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the MW621 (£537.49), the MX819ST (£230.00), or the MW721 (£543.79) all from Benq which is also higher rated.
