Supports 3D

The Benq MX819ST supports 3D, as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the MX819ST.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors which support 3D currently available including the Epson EH-TW5100[plb_2591283_price] which has better reviews; or the Benq MW820ST[plb_1552199_price] which is cheaper.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX819ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the MX819ST.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think cheaper multimedia projectors such as the Benq MW820ST[plb_1552199_price], and the Acer P1276[plb_1563560_price] is also worth considering.
