Summary: This projector has been advertised as a conference room projector and not a home theater projector, however I find the picture quality to very good for movies. I have it hooked up to my PS3 with hdmi and it looks great.
Pros: brightness, resolution using hdmi.
Cons: none, fans are slightly loud but not noisy or bothersome.

Summary: i purchased the mx511 about three months ago. i have to say it's awesome. hdmi works great. it's the only thing i have hooked up. i have it hooked up to my directv and ps3. i am running through a viewsonic vp3d1 adapter. i am using cheap 3d dlp link glasses made by futurecinema..
Summary: BenQ MX511 is 3D ready but it does not support HD source for 3D. You can see 3D only using composite (yellow) or s-video cable (advised by BenQ tech support). To see HD 3D you need HDMI 1.4 input and this projector only support HDMI 1.3 input.
Summary: I have had this unit for about a month now. I am very satisfield with the color, clarity and brightness. I am very dissapointed with the 3D function. For this unit to output 3D, it must use the video input. I tried three bluray players and they all output the 3D on HDMI. Won't work!
Summary: The Benq MX511 3D ready DLP Projector, is a decent projector, with good colors, brightness and black levels, at a reasonable price, this projector can also be added to the list of projectors that is compatible with the Optoma 3D-XL Converter Box.
Summary: This is very good projector, great value for money. No issues so far have used it for a month. Product arrived on time well packaged and as expected. If you are not looking for a short throw projector then this is the one I think. Happy I bought this one after quite bit of research.
Summary: I say best bang for the buck but that it a little unfair as I have never owned a projector before nor have I compared this side by side to any other projector. Let me tell you of my experience so far. I purchased this projector about 2 weeks ago.
Summary: I am really quite pleased with this projector. Wanted a projector to replace my very old NEC SVGA one with hdmi for xbox gaming and dvd/etc in the basement and i am now projecting about a 5ft high image on a white painted wall.
Summary: I loved this projector until just 1 month out of warranty when the pixels started getting stuck. In the course of just 3 days 70% of the image is completely obscured by white or black pixels. It will cost nearly as much to repair as for a new projector, so it's going in the trash.
Summary: product came in on time started up flawlessly! then it wouldn't come back on at all even waited a day to turn it on.. but some forums said just to blow it out with some pc air dusters now works excellent! THANKS!
