The BenQ MP525 is a mid-priced DLP projector. Characteristic of BenQ's projector offerings, the MP525 has a heavy focus on color performance. The BrilliantColor technology, which is a staple of BenQ's projectors, ups the mid-range of the picture, which gives it depth and range. You can utilize the MP525's full 16.7 million color palette with the help of the 3D color adjust feature. This feature allows you to manually fine tune the hue, grain and saturation levels of all six color wheel tones (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow). For further picture quality, the keystone correction technology built in to the MP525 helps prevent misshapen images. The differences between BenQ's DLP offerings are in the size and connectivity of the units.
