BenQ MS502

 

I still can't believe I got such a quality projector at such a fantastic price. There was no messing about on first use; just plug in, connect laptop and go.

It's probably heavier than more expensive projectors and also bulkier - but who cares at that price :) It also doesn't come with a case but again who cares; I bought a funky little case to carry it in that also holds all the peripherals. To turn slides...

BenQ MS502

 

Plugged it in and it worked with all my imaging devices. Lots of connection types The image quality is superb It is great value for money Remote control is very useful Good control over image and focus

It is a little bit noisy when the fan kicks in but I think this is standard for these machines. You get used to it and tune it out after a while.
