Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The Benq MX852 does not support full HD. Most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years also do not support full HD.

It is worth considering other data projectors which also support full HD including the TH682 (£639.99), or the W1300 (£773.95) both from Benq; or the NEC L102 (£618.33).

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Benq MX852 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to this data projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Epson PowerLite 955W (£724.78), or the Infocus IN1146 (£649) both of which have better reviews; or the Optoma W304M (£619.57) which is cheaper.

Projector

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Benq MX852 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including the Optoma X304M (£570.97), or the Epson PowerLite 99W (£594.25) both of which are cheaper.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic PT-TW340 (3,200 ANSI lumens and cheaper), or the NEC M362 (£638.54) (3,600 ANSI lumens and cheaper).
