The BenQ MS524A is discontinued as of Spring 2018. For more information about recent models, check out our updated projector review.
The BenQ MS524A punches well above its weight class. It is both the lightest projector we tested and the brightest. Despite its relatively low native resolution, it manages to produce images of a reasonable quality. If you're looking for a portable option for presentations or something inexpensive that can cut through ambient light like a hot knife through butter, look no further. However, the ViewSonic PJD5155 is more than a $100 less and almost as good.
