BenQ MS524

 

The BenQ MS524 offers good brightness and solid data-image quality in a low-priced SVGA data projector.

Low price. Bright. Lightweight. Good lamp life. Can project 3D content.

BenQ MS524

 

Adjustable image zoom. Picture is clear and crisp. I don't use the speakers but use a separate theatre system although you could use the built in speakers. Easy to set up and use. Great value for the money.

The cooling fan is a bit noisy although it's not noticed for the most part.

We are very happy with this PcProjector because it can connect with 2 laptops alternately. It can save electricity.

We would like to carry lighter.

Has eco setting and variable screen projection sizes. hand held remote enables easy use of these. Focussing good

Occasionally needs to be some distance from screen/wall to get good focus and large size.
