This multimedia projector was released in March 2013.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The MX822ST has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider including the Benq MW843 (£860.59) which is cheaper; or the Benq MX768 (£916.61), or the Optoma DH1011 (£617.58) both of which have better reviews.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The MX822ST does not support full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years also do not support full HD.

Other projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the Optoma DH1011 (£617.58) which also has a higher rating.

Price

Not Cheap

After checking the price of 30 multimedia projectors of this age and spec they range in price from £230 to £1,599. We think that this multimedia projector looks expensive compared to other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.


Energy

Running Costs Are High

The average running cost of the MX822ST is £123 over 1 year based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run data projectors of this age and type.


Projector

Fairly Bright Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors of a similar spec and age to this multimedia projector the projector brightnesses range from 800 ANSI lumens to 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,000 ANSI lumens. The MX822ST has a quite bright projector brightness (3,500 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

If this Benq multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Benq MW724 (£668.19) (3,700 ANSI lumens and cheaper); or the Benq MX768 (£916.61) (4,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
