Summary: Personal Experience HORRIBLE BenQ Customer Service Problems Purchased BenQ MS510 projector... great picture but fan was not working properly. Bulb lasted less than 1,100 hours, returned it for repairs while under warranty. Repair shop said it was just a bad bulb. New bulb lasted less than first one, blew up from overheating. Again took it for repairs (now of course after warranty expired), was told it was bad bulb... again. Put in new bulb, unit would not stay on.
Summary: Personal Experience have to edit my previous review. I've had this projector for about 2 years, and it worked great up until the last two months. I first noticed one dead pixel. And then another. and then another. Soon (2 weeks) there were so many (easily a 1000) dead pixels, that it's virtually unwatchable (my wife manages to look past the bright white spots on the screen, but I can't) The whole unit only cost $335CDN, which works out to $167.50 per year, so I guess I...
Summary: Personal Experience I have had the projector for almost a year and I love it. I have been shopping a good projecter at a good price for 10 years and found this one for 300$ at Stapples. I project the image on 92 inch 16:9 screen and it's wonderful both for movies and video games on my PS3.For somebody like me, with a thight budget, it's a real blessing. My friends come over to watch movies or play games and they love it, It's cheaper than a big sceen tv and way more fun.
Summary: Personal Experience Its a amazing projector !! i was little skeptic , the price was only 299 $ - and with HDMI Blueray disc its fantastic ! im in little chock i have tryed alot of other projectors ... that cost 3500 $ that is very close to this product .... BUY IT !! Problems not yet ...
Summary: Personal Experience I bought this projector just over a year ago , paid under $300.00 for it . It an awesome machine, awesome picture (HDMI Connection) one of the best purchases Ive ever made, if you are looking for something to watch sporting events, movies this is it what a feaking deal , only one con is this adjustable leg is flimsy,but with that said , I would recommend this projector .
Summary: This is a great starter projector. It has HDMI hookup which I love. The picture is pretty good but could be clearer crisper. Overall it is a great projector that I use for TV and playing PS3 and Xbox 360 games.
Summary: Personal Experience First projector. Bought for $300 at Staples Canada in March of 2011. So far I've watched DVD movies using homemade 3-RCA Component Video to HD15 (VGA) cable (note: component can be wired equivalent to VGA in these circumstances) with the DVD in Progressive Scan mode (480p), with the picture projected onto a white roller blind bought from Home Depot (don't laugh it works). The picture looks ...
Fast shipment, great ebayer...will do business again.

Summary: I bought BenQ MS510 Projector for my basement home theater, so far it works like a charm. I have it project to my wall(painted gray), the clarity is phenomenon, and brightness is pretty good consider I can still see the images slight when I have my 2 pot lights shooting on the wall. I'd recommend whoever wants to get HD but doesn't want to pay 1000+ dollars to get this projector, a great deal for what it can do.
Summary: Personal Experience I bought the MS510 to fill the gap between the slow demise of my Mitsubishi HD1000 (720P) and the eventual arrival of affordable LED 1080P units. I was disappointed by the fact a few weren't introduced at CEDIA 2010. Like the poster above, I got the 510 for $299 from Staples. This is about 30% less than the cost of a replacement bulb for the Mistubishi. In short, the MS510 is a little killer. Colour is great and so is brightness.
