With a projection distance this close, you and your audience can move freely without worrying about obstructions between the projector and the screen! As a short throw projector the shadows will be eliminated and there will be no glare in the presenter’s eyes. The bright 3500 lumens means you can project throughout the day. The MH856UST+ features Full HD resolution giving you great clarity and is suitable for anything from basic data to Blu ray movies! There are two HDMI inputs and a VGA input so you can connect to multiple devices at one time. The USB input can be used for PC-free presentations. There are two 10W built in speakers which will be powerful enough for a medium sized audience. It comes with a wall mount which is great as it saves you money. Talk to us if you need help with installation as we offer this service throughout the UK. To help with installation, the MH856UST+ has vertical and horizontal keystone correction. This means that you can mount the projector slightly off centre of the screen and use this feature to still project in the middle. Overall, this is a great projector with some great features and connectivity and BENQ offer a 3 year warranty for peace of mind. Check out the PDF to the left for more information.

About Just Projectors
We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tablets so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there like BenQ, ViewSonic, Epson, Sony and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best. We only buy UK stock, which has higher warranty standards to ensure you get real value for money. We don't sell the cheap brands as the lumens aren't verified. Look at our name it tells you that we are committed to this product and we have a great reputation in the market place for price and customer service.
