BenQ MP611 review


The price is right - what about the quality?

Attractive price ; Pleasantly quiet

Limited resolution ; Little point in tweaking settings

It's pitched at a low price, but too many compromises have been made to get there

BenQ - MP611


First impressions of the BenQ MP611 are favourable. It has a smart, shiny casing that is dark blue in colour, while the nine control buttons on the top of the casing come in a variety of ...

The BenQ MP611 has a decent enough specification for a DLP SVGA projector, but the price is too steep and we didn't think much of the picture, which tended to be bright and harsh on the eye.

BenQ MP611c DLP Projector


Ah sweetness! Projector prices are finally dropping to a level where we won't have to do anything illegal to be able to afford one. But the thing with projectors is that it's not always the cost that prevents us all from having a home theater, but the...

BenQ MP611 Multipurpose projector


As one of the best value projectors on the market, the new BenQ MP611 not only has a great modern appearance but a lamp life of up to 4000 hours. It's the perfect value option for those who would like to do a bit of everything with their projector. It...

Budget price projector that looks attractive and performs s


The BenQ MP611c DLP projector may be available at a budget price, but it definitely doesn't look like one. It's 10.9x3.7x8.7 inch size makes it considerably small in size and the 2.68kg weight is not too heavy to carry either. It's top portion has the...

There are quite a few features that I really liked about the projector. It had a pretty good start-up time at under 30 seconds and an equally impressive shutdown time which was close to 40 seconds. The performance was very silent, with no fan noise...

I selected VGA input to play movies on the MP611c, primarily because compared to composite and S-Video (my other alternatives), the VGA input would give me the purest quality, and sure enough, the image was, to an extent, impressive. The black levels...

Product Specifications

You've come to expect that BenQ will make thoughtful design its first priority, and the MP611 is no exception. With its extraordinarily quiet operation, auto-off feature and high-altitude mode, the MP611 is designed with users in mind. The MP611 incorporates an efficient, but quiet ventilation design that circulates air more quickly and effectively. The improved airflow means the MP611 can keep its cool even with its cooling fan is running slower, and thus more quietly. How quiet? The MP611 runs at just 25dB in its power-saving mode, making it literally whisper-quiet. Another design touch you'll appreciate is the auto-off feature, which shuts the projector down if no input sources are detected after a set time, conserving power and preventing possible overheating. The MP611 even performs reliably in harsh environments, such as high altitudes, thanks to its special operating modes. These modes automatically adjust the cooling fan speeds and other settings to ensure optimal operation whatever the ambient conditions. The MP611 doesn't just give you the performance to deliver knockout presentations, but it also helps you with handy features like the MyScreen software, power on/off alert, panel key lock, and presentation timer. You and your audience will appreciate the built-in timer that helps keep your presentations at the right pace. An unobtrusive on-screen timer lets you keep track of how much time you have remaining, while your audience is freed from wondering where you are in your presentation so they can concentrate on you and the content you're presenting instead. The MP611 provides a discreet alert that lets you know when the projector has powered on before a presentation or finished cooling afterwards, so you can stay engaged with your audience without needing to look at visual indicators. The MyScreen software makes it a snap to create a custom start-up screen, like a photo or company logo. Connect the MP611 to your PC with a common RS-232 cable and start up MyScreen. MyScreen will prompt you to select the image file you want to use, and then upload it to the MP611 so you can put your personal stamp on every presentation. BenQ realizes that not every presentation or movie will have the benefit of a pitch-dark room, so that's why it features a powerful 2400-lumen lamp that ensures a bright picture even in sunlit rooms. Regardless of the lighting conditions, that the MP611 delivers the best possible viewing experience. To ensure that even subtle differences in tints are brought out, the MP611 provides an astounding 2000: 1 contrast ratio. The result is extraordinarily crisp rendering of the finest details for utterly realistic video. For added flexibility and convenience, BenQ has added a blackboard mode to the MP611. That means even in a classroom or other venues where only a blackboard is available, you can still display legible text, cleanly rendered images, and crisp video. Simply switch the mode on and let the MP611 handle all the needed adjustments.
