Expert review by : Aditya Nag (

BenQ MP511+


Simple, easy to use, and bright. Slight issues with image quality take it to fifth place. Ideal only for simple presentations.

Large, clearly-labelled button ; Easy-to-use menu ; Nice presentation mode

Average performance

A projector for less demanding presentations. It has trouble a few of the test screens, in particular the white level screens.

Good projector, for the price


This is a GREAT projector for professional/classroom settings. As I said, videos can be a bit less than home theater quality, so if you want a home theater projector, I recommend buying one that's meant for that. The connector cables that come with it...

Good image, adjustable to different presentation environments (angle, wall color, etc), great value, durable (so far). This projector serves me well in both classroom and home settings, but my standards for video clarity are not very high. I've used...

UI is a little weird unless you use the remote. Image can get a bit streaky when you present video data. Lens cap doesn't stay on very securely. You'll also need to get a bag to keep it in, as it does not come with one.

Great Price and awesome projector


Great picture on any light color wall and easy to set up. auto find any signal that is plugged in. am using for home theater and color is true,rich, and flicker free. easy remote features and very quiet

None Yet but do the comparison against LCD. This unit will outperform the highest priced LCD projectors and I have been a fan of TI tech. since the days of TI-99/4A computers ...remember those
