Smaller spaces can have that big picture, too. BenQ is making it easy to add a projector into small- and medium-sized rooms, with the newly announced MW519.

As part of the company’s SmartEco line, the MW519 boasts 6,500 hours of lamp life. It also has a SmartEco mode, which automatically adjusts the lamp to maximize power savings and create the best image needed for your setting. Other eco-friendly features include a “no source detected” mode and an “Eco Blank” mode, which cuts power to 30 percent when a blank screen is detected.
