BenQ's Next-Generation SmartEco Projectors Now Shipping

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
BenQ has announced that its next-generation MS517, MX518, and MW519 SmartEco projectors for small- to medium-sized spaces are available now. Featuring increased brightness of 2800 ANSI lumens, an improved contrast ratio of 13000:1, longer lamp life up to 6,500 hours, and SVGA (MS517), XGA (MX518), and WXGA (MW519) resolutions, the new projectors support 3D Blu-ray via HDMI 1.4 and NVIDIA 3DTV Play (MW519).


They look really sweet -- what do you think?

I noticed that ms517 has a 190 w lamp but outputs 2800 lumens! Thats pretty high number!
My sony qualia is probably 700 watt lamp with 1600 lumens..

Are these apples to oranges numbers? what am I missing?

they call it "eco friendly" - because of their dimming feature? Nice.. but I wish people came out with LED lamps.. which offer a lot more brightness per watt.. and much less heat..

Advertised lumens can not be relied upon just like dynamic contrast ratio. Too many entry level projectors, after calibration, emit less than 50% of the advertised brightness.

I don't have too many experience with BenQ, but usually they are of very good value.

BenQ’s recently introduced W1080ST Projector and its luminosity is also good and it is fun dealing with according to techreleased.com

the world’s first Full HD short throw video projector. As the world’s first Full HD short throw video projector, BenQ’s W1080ST creates a 65.7” image when positioned at a distance of just one meter, preventing image obstruction and shadows on the screen which is ideal in any situation, but particularly important when engaging in gaming..
