This projector scores with a great short throw lens and vibrant video reproduction, but lack of an HDMI port and a price tag of Rs 80,000 might make you want to look elsewhere.

BenQ MP771 detailed review

For Cramped-up Space


Projectors are finding their way into your living room as home entertainment systems. The latest innovation that is coming in projectors is short throw lenses and mind it the BenQ MP771 is a classic example of it. With its short throw lens this projector can project up to a 74-inch display from a distance of 1 meter. Good thing for people who have really cramped up spaces in office or at home.


The BenQ MP 771 is compact, and uses a 280 watt Osram lamp, which company claims will last for almost 4000 hours under economy mode or 3000 hours under normal usage. You will need to change the lamp much before that of course, or suffer reduced brightness.


This projector has a native XGA resolution of 1024 x 768, but supports resolution from VGA (640 x 480) to SXGA (1280 x 1024). It features a 16.7 million color palette to give a richer color experience. We played a couple of movies and videos on it and it was able to reproduce superb colors with great contrast and sharpness. You can also tweak color saturation and hue according to your needs.


The projector has a small footprint. This projector has an impressive start up and shut down times; it took 1 minute to start the first time, and 32 seconds the next time. Shutting down is fast; just 29 seconds.


This projector comes with different video input ports like DVI, D-Sub, S-Video and Composite video, but at its price, were expecting it to have HDMI support too.
