BenQ MP780 ST Projector

WXGA Conference Room Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From BenQ —   Education - that was original role of the MP780ST in the classroom. Featured up with 2500 lumens, WXGA, Short Throw DLP, HDMI plus added pro extras like networking. Now we have a batch of excess refurbished inventory without the interactive pen or software. No longer bundled with the doo-dads intended for it's original purpose in the classroom but one heck of a great projector for home or office at a truly crazy price. Check out the basic specs, ignore the whole pen & interactivity thing and think of the projector in it's raw, pure form - A wide, bright, short throw DLP projector. Then pick one up - it's a great deal!

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.

Manufacturer Cited Brightness:

BUYER BEWARE   Either this projector's brightness specification does not cite an industry-accepted unit of measurement, or according to our calculations it seems unlikely that this projector is capable of producing the manufacturer's cited brightness specification.
