Two ways to get an additional 5% back on this - Checkout using Paypal and a Chase Freedom card or register your Visa business card (ex. Chase Ink) at VisaSavingsEdge and then pay with that.

Assuming you don't live in NY and therefore won't be taxed, 5% back would bring this down to $426.55.

you may want to reconsider since this 1chip DLP projector only puts out 650 lumens of color brightness. The color images and movies will be very dull and dark. You can compare it at colorlightoutput.com. Projection you should consider an Epson 3chip 3LCD. The color brightness is 3X and very price comparable. Additionally I see the color rainbow effect with these spinning color wheel DLP projectors.

Review of BenQ MU686 DLP Projector Being used For Home Cinema

This Business Projector has good reviews being used as a Home theater Projector. It's a great Price at 449.00

"I began this review by asking why one would install a business projector in their home. Given what I've learned about the MU686, the answer is clear. The lines between business and home theater displays have been blurred. There's no reason why any projector can't provide accurate color, grayscale and gamma performance while supporting proper video processing for content from both computer and AV sources. All you need for the business side is a good variety of inputs and a laser pointer. And BenQ's inclusion of wireless HDMI is a nice bonus.
It seems that the MU686 checks all the right boxes at a super-attractive price. While some enthusiasts might gravitate to more-expensive home theater models, those who want add a projector to their already well-equipped media room without spending a lot would be wise to check this one out. Highly recommended"

The Industry Standard for measuring the brightness of projectors is ANSI lumens. This measurement is made at the factory level and is published by projector manufacturers.


Color light Output is not an accepted industry standard and it was created by manufacturers to promote their LCD based Projectors over the very popular DLP based projectors. BenQ did not supply or verify any of the information that has been posted about the color brightness of any of their projectors.

So glad I didn't listen to the other poster about the color lumens marketing scam. Received the projector yesterday and it was absolutely gorgeous colors, deep blacks and no rainbow effect at all.
