If you are considering buying a projector, look no further than the BENQ MS521P. Absolutely great value for money. Easy to set up with straight forward instructions and within minutes you have a home cinema. Has been in constant use since purchase.

Children don't want to go to the cinema with me anymore because we have one at home. Costing me a small fortune in popcorn!!!!
