Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The addition of the HDMI port over the MS500+ is increcidbly useful and makes it so easy to just plug and play with my laptop, Blu Ray Player and Sky

It also has plenty of other video and image inputs (including 2 compute inputs) to make sure everything you have can plug into it

The image quality is fantastic in HD and if anything, a little too bright at points, so found myself turning the eco mode on to reduce the brightness and as an added bonus, increase bulb life
Bad points:
The mute switches off every time you turn it on again, so make sure you set the volume on the projector at 0 and it will always stay on 0 with its speaker off

In full brightness, the fan noise is noticeable if watching a quiet programme, so switching to eco mode also reduces the fan speed and keeps it quiet
Overall rating 10.0

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture when used with my Apple TV, Xbox 360, FreetSat HD and DVD.
Bad points:
Have to mute the device each time I switch it on otherwise sound comes out of my Home Cinema system AND the projector (maybe I'm missing some setting somewhere).

Manufacturer's Description

Easy to Maintain, Easy on Your Budget
Long Lamp Life at up to 6000 hours
Enjoy a lamp life performance of up to 6000 hours* – twice the lamp life expectancy of average projector lamps on the market! This certainly lowers the number of lamp changes and keeps all maintenance to a minimum.

*Lamp life results will vary depending on environmental conditions and usage.
Reliable Picture Quality with True-to-Life Color Performance
BenQ projectors that use DLP® technology are virtually immune to color decay – the yellow/green tint that some projector images develop over extended periods of usage. This is one technological advantage that you’ll get to enjoy – year after year!
