The MX511 claims to give distinct lamp life performance of up to 6,000 hours (in economy mode), which is almost twice the lamp life expectancy of average projector lamps. The brightness at 2700 ANSI lumens is impressive as is the high contrast ratio of 3000:1. With such brightness numbers, MX511 should do fine even if there is some ambient light in the room.

BenQ MX511 offers XGA native resolution of up to 1024 x 768 pixels for clear, crisp, and accurate images. BenQ’s trademark BrilliantColor technology enhances secondary color brightness and makes pictures more vivid. BenQ MX511 DLP Projector weighs 2.3 kgs and measures 265 x 100 x 210 mm in dimensions.

BenQ MX511 DLP Projector initially made its debut in Europe and is now available in Japan, but there is no word regarding its India launch and pricing yet.
