Good Product Quality

One customer mentioned that it was good quality. Three years ago Pcmag.com gave it a rating of 70 out of 100 and said in their review on expert website PC Mag “The BenQ MX766 projector delivers more than acceptable data image quality, with a bright enough image to stand up to ambient light in a mid- to large-size conference room”.

Good Sound Quality

One customer who reviewed this projector concluded that it had good sound quality. It Reviews.com said in their Benq MX766 review on IT Reviews.com “Sound suitable for only a small room or a little larger”.

Good Picture Quality

One customer who purchased the Benq MX766 wrote that it had good picture quality.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this type and age, the Benq MX766 has a built-in speaker(s).

Expert Reviews Are Average

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including PC Mag and IT Reviews.com the average expert rating of this 13000:1 contrast ratio projector is 65 out of 100.

Does Not Support 3D
