This review is from: BenQ MX503 1024 x 768 2700 lumens DLP Projector 13,000:1
Pros: Picture: Good colors, good focus, plenty bright Interface: Easy to connect to computer, easy to adjust picture and navigate menus Aesthetics: It's a very nice-looking machine. It looks sleek and solid.
Cons: Kicks off a lot of heat. Sit on the wrong side of this thing, and you'll cook. The options to adjust the yaw (or is it pitch? roll?) are limited, such that if the image on the screen is tilted in a certain direction, you can't tilt it away from that angle, because the foot on the back right corner is already all the way in. That's easily fixed with a folded bit of paper under the other foot, of course, but I'd rather not have to do that.
Other Thoughts: I got this to replace a BenQ projector that I bought in 2008 and used extensively for the subsequent 4 years. The DLP wheel eventually gives out, i guess, and so I replaced my old projector, which functioned perfectly for 3 years and serviceably for another year after that. I like the BenQ projectors because the lamps last a good long time, the picture is good enough (not HD, mind you, but good enough) and they're easy to use. I don't recommend replacing your lamp when the time comes for it. It's expensive and a big hassle, and by the time you're replacing the lamp, other parts of the machine are wearing out. This is all to say that if you want a projector to use in a classroom, at home (to watch movies), or even in a workplace, and you're not worried about it being a little bulky, this is a good option.
