[One year after purchase] Great projector! Forgot to review XD

Tyler Dalious, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Have been using it for a year now (forgot to do a review *facepalm*) and I can hardly think of a problem I've found. Every time I power it up it takes the same time (no increase of bootup lag), video quality has been consistent and clear (used it against a garage wall about 8-9 feet diagonal, great picture), and the various ports that I've used have not begun to fail yet (knock on wood). All in all a great product.

Good Projector, 3D works good after calibration and firmware update

Allen, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: The BenQ MW519 is a very good projector for 2D with bright colors and deep solid blacks, nothing bothered me about the 2D. As for the 3D, Well, Out of the box 3D mode looked very dark and washed out with a major posterizing problem. If I brightened it up with just brightness and contrast, posterizing becomes an even bigger issue.... More detailed Calibration of the 3D mode was needed.

  • Summary: We are only using this for a meeting room setting but so far there haven't been any issues and everything looks and works great. It even was excellent with full light in the room. It was better without of course, but surprisingly good with.

Nice!

  • Summary: This projector only cost me about $100.00 more than a lamp for either of my other two projectors. Lamps are about $150.00 less than most others. When you use it as much as I do, this is VERY important. I have been using an $1900.00 Epson and a $950.00 Optoma and have only gotten about two thousand hours out of their lamps. I feel this projector is superior in every aspect.

Absence of any kind of support!

  • Summary: I purchased this in late march I was very happy with the projector when I got it. Good picture, nice and bright. I then tried out the projector with a 3d movie. It didn't seem to be adjusted quite right so I was using the remote to adjust some of the settings, when the remote suddenly stopped controlling the projector and the only thing that worked was manually controlling it from the panel physically on the projector.

benq mw519 - incredible value !

kishore, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: Here's how it goes : I'm not deeply into technical aspects of projectors. I'm just a guy who wanted an upgrade from my LG 46" 3d tv. I always had this teenage fascination of playing games like god of war/crysis on a huge theater screen. Finally I've fulfilled my mad fantasy without burning my pocket :) I checekd out a couple of demos of epson/mitsubishi/optoma. At this price range, i think no one competes with benq. The value for money is incredible.

GREAT UNIT~!!

D. Mertins "AUDIOGURU", Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: OK, I'm using this as a Home Theater projector. It's 1280X800 which is 16:10 and considered Full HD. All my PC monitors are 16:10 cause I like the extra realestate as opposed to the 16:9 widescreens. Anyways, I figured, give it a shot and hope I can live with it, turns out, I LOVE it!! I bought it for the 2800 Lumens and the 13,000:1 contrast ratio. In my eyes, that's the best of both worlds.

a satisfactory projector

jason, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: I used projectors for movies and games in living room. Previously I used a Optoma projector with 800*600 resolution. After the upgrade to this 720p Benq projector, the improvement of the image is obvious. The color is good out of box without much adjustment. The brightness is enough for me, even too bright sometimes. Have not tried the 3D function yet. The cons is the noise of this projector is a little too much and produce a lot of heat than average.
