Summary: BenQ MW519 2800 Lumen WXGA DLP Smarteco Projector. I bought this projector brand new for $450.00 on about August 2012. I gave this and many other comparable projectors a good amount of research and review-reading and the BenQ MW519 came at the top of my selection.

Summary: i have built my own home cinema, and find the Benq MW519 16:10 WXGA Projector perfect for watching movies and xbox very clear picture for the money very happy.i also used a 72" Electric HD Projection Screen projector home cinema 16:9 Glass Bead, it all workes perfect
