BenQ MW519

 

The BenQ MW519 is a likable data projector for classroom use, with good data image quality over a digital connection, 3D capabilities, and several eco-friendly features to prolong lamp life.

Solid data image quality, especially over HDMI. 3D ready. Eco-friendly, with long lamp life and power-saving features.

Some rainbow effect in video. Feeble audio. Data image quality is noticeably worse over an analog (VGA) connection than with HDMI.

BenQ MW519 Review

 

BenQ's very low priced 1280x800 projector, the MW519 offers a 2800-lumen brightness rating and moderately good portability...

Easy set-up and subsequent fine tuning to suit the particular conditions.

The lens cap is a bit of a nuisance when ceiling mounted. The attachment strip is just long enough to park it on top of the projector, but this is no real criticism.

Quality of the image is very good, bright and sharp, it is HDCP compliant, took me ages to find one which I could connect directly to my SKY HD Box. Tis projector does everything that is required very well.

I really don't have anything bad to say about this projector, promise I aint on commission.

with HDMI cable connection B-ray image is very rewarding (3.5mt throw) I am comparing it with my previous S-Video XVGA

nothing apart that you need to pay nearly £400 for it...

Good for games and movies.

Some 'rainbow effect' on some movies, only when looking for it.

Great image Great amount of ports Has speakers has small zoom great in small bedroom

Overheats on normal lamp mode - found a hidden setting to ramp up the fan speeds. Doesn't overheat on economy mode though which I found to be just as bright.

Works great in a classroom

 

We are using this projector in a classroom. The price is very good for a WXGA projector, and the picture quality is great. We've only used it for a couple of weeks so we can't speak to the longevity yet.
