Good Brand

On average projectors made by Benq are rated 87%, which is in the top 24% of all projector manufacturers that we have assessed.


Energy

Low Running Costs

The MX711 is one of the cheaper to run data projectors that have been available for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the MX711 will cost £110 over 1 year to run.


Other

Released Over Three Years Ago

Benq released the MX711 in February 2014.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX711 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the LG SA560 (£780.02) which has better reviews.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the VPL-CW255 (£832.44), or the VPL-CW256 (£959) both from Sony are also worth considering.
