Cherry , Stroud, Gloucestershire older person, reliability essential

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easier to use than I had anticipated !
Bad points:
The projector itself is not all that heavy - but by the time all its cables and plugs are added in, it's a fair load for an elderly person also carrying laptop and other luggage!

World-Leading SmartEco Technology for a Greener Environment

As the first DLP brand to incorporate Philips’ ImageCare technology into its projector lamp system, BenQ has taken a further leap, developing its own SmartEco Technology to perfect what DLP can do for energy saving in the 21st century classroom. Built with this brand new invention, the MX518 brings together uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life through innovative features.

Eco Blank Mode

The Eco Blank mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct their students’ focus back on them – or simply when the projector is not in use. When activated, this special feature dims the lamp power automatically, lowering the total power consumption by 70%.

SmartEco Mode

The SmartEco Mode, which cleverly adjusts the lamp power to maximize power saving by delivering the best contrast and brightness performance using only as much light as needed.

No Source Detected Mode

The automatic switch to Eco Blank Mode after the projector is turned on for over three minutes without a display source, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.

0.5W in Standby Mode

When inactive, the MX518 keeps power consumption to a minimum with 0.5W standby power, achieving what was once a challenge for ealier projector models. This technological advancement in energy saving certainly helps extend the projector lamp life and lower energy costs.

Supports 3D Blu-ray via HDMI

Designed to maximize your audiovisual enjoyment, the MX518 brings to you unlimited 3D entertainment via HDMI. The 3D formats supported are 3D field-sequentials, 3D frame-packing, 3D top-and-bottom and 3D side-by-side.

User-Friendly I/O Port Design

To enable easy access for everyone, the I/O ports are clearly printed on the projector housing so users can find the port they need straight away. No squinting your eyes or bending over for a closer look.

Teaching Template

To make your teaching job easier, BenQ has added the teaching template function to the MX518. Now, with four different line pattern designs to choose from – Letter Formation, Musical Staff, Worksheet and Coordinate Chart, you can easily write or draw on whiteboards as well as blackboards without the need of drawing lines or charts.
