BenQ MX661

 

The BenQ MX661 is a good choice as a business projector, providing solid data image quality, reasonably good video, and a wide range of connection choices.

Good video quality. Can run presentations from a USB thumb drive. 3D capable. Good lamp life.

Audio is on the soft side. Data image quality notably worse over a VGA connection.

It's easy to recommend the BenQ MX661 as a business projector for its wide range of connection choices and solid data and video quality. Its portability and 3D capabilities are nice pluses. Though its image quality may not be top of the line, it's more...
