Summary: Personal Experience Bought this unit in August 2013 as a refurb from Newegg.com. Use it in class almost every day. Total maybe 200-300 hours at the most. The distance required to project to the wall is awesome. Image quality is good and bright. The lack of HDMI and DVI connection is a small problem, but the VGA seems to be good enough for the job. The Ethernet connection seems useless, too slow. Problems Unit failed with a non documented LED code.
Summary: This projector is so easy to setup, just put it on a table right close to the wall, no complicated mounts necessary, and it makes an excellent image. The remote has a laser and aids operation.
Summary: We got this projector because I hated when the projector would get into your peripheral vision while lecturing or providing instructions. I also found it really annoying whenever I got into the way of the projector because I know I’d be blocking the image, and since I hate when I watch people present and it happens to them; so I hate being the one to do it to others as well.
Pros: Extremely Ultra Short throw, bright, extremely sharp, no more blinding yourself while presenting
Cons: Not suitable for movie watching, but okay for short clips.
Summary: Comments about BenQ MX880UST DLP Projector: For a very affordable projector the BenQ MX880UST is an ultra short throw projector that delivers massive output. A simple illustration of the benefits of ultra short throw is that it can throw 80" display in merely 2 feet of distance between the projector and the projector screen. At 6 feet it can throw nearly 300 inches of diagonal display.
Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy to use, Great picture quality, Reliable Performance, Ultra Short Throw
Summary: Personal Experience This is by far the shortest throw projector we have ever come across. When we explained to our IT specialist that for a few of our rooms we need projectors, however due to the poor room set up, the only sufficient amount of room for projector display was less than a meter, they recommended us the MX880UST. We had thought it was impossible to throw a projection of about 70 inch of diagonal display under 75cm of distance.
Summary: Comments about BenQ MX880UST DLP Projector: When I went online searching for a short throw projector, this was what my research directed me to: MX880UST. This is got to be the ultimate short throw projector. With less than half a meter (less than 2 feet) you will get almost 80 inches of full blown display. I didn't believe it, but after reading a few reviews, I realized it was for real, I bought it right away.
Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy to use, Great picture quality, Reliable Performance, Small Footprint
