Review submitted for BENQ MX511 - DLP 3D Ready Black XGA Projector (BENQMX511)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Lack of options
Other Comments: The BENQ MX511 is a great projector for a novice, such as myself. Set up was a breeze, HDMI from PS3 to the MX511 & VGA from PC to MX511... I also hooked up an audio out from the MX511 to my PC's 2.1 sound system to get better volume out of the set up. Everything is easy to navigate and adjust, I just wish there were more options to calibrate the picture. The standard settings are good enough to watch blu rays from the PS3 in hi-def, but I can tell the colors are slightly less dramatic then my PC monitor when I have the MX511 in VGA output... which is barely an issue for the price. I bought an Elite Cinewhite 92" fixed screen to shoot the picture onto and it looks gorgeous for what I paid - awesome projector for a first timer who wants to watch blu rays, play HD videogames or turn your computer screen into a massive picture... I haven't tried out the 3D capabilities yet because as of writing this (Jan 2012) the PS3 cannot shoot 3D through this bad boy because of the way the PS3 does 3D through HDMI cables. But, I will honestly say, I'm not a huge 3D fan to begin with... but it's nice knowing that if I get a change of heart in the future, my MX511 can already do 3D!
