Pricey

13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago range in price from £230 to £1,599. We think that this 13000:1 contrast ratio projector looks expensive compared to other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago.

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was February 2015 when Benq released the MX768.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX768 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to this data projector.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper data projectors such as the MX822ST (£871.34), or the MW843 (£860.59) both from Benq.

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Benq MW821ST (£999.99).
