good for 2D

on 3/21/2012

BenQ MX511 is 3D ready but it does not support HD source for 3D. You can see 3D only using composite (yellow) or s-video cable (advised by BenQ tech support). To see HD 3D you need HDMI 1.4 input and this projector only support HDMI 1.3 input. I hooked up Sony 3D Blue ray player (BDPS470) with HDMI 1.3 to this projector and this combination was not able to project 3D image on screen. It automatically playback to 2D/1080p. Menu Option in BenQ for 3D setup also got disabled/turn off with this setup. I have checked with composite cable to see 3D with DLP link ready glass and 3D was horrible with no depth, seems like 2D.

Big picture performance at a good price!

on 6/11/2012

The BENQ MX511 is a great projector for a novice, such as myself. Set up was a breeze, HDMI from PS3 to the MX511 & VGA from PC to MX511... I also hooked up an audio out from the MX511 to my PC's 2.1 sound system to get better volume out of the set up. Everything is easy to navigate and adjust, I just wish there were more options to calibrate the picture. The standard settings are good enough to watch blu rays from the PS3 in hi-def
