ViewSonic M Series Projectors (2018) vs BenQ HT2100 Series Projectors (2016)

Analysis:

The ViewSonic M1 is an example of a great Home Projector at its $290 budget.

In the case of the BenQ HT2150ST, however, we weren't able to find enough data to come to any reliable conclusions.

The ViewSonic M1 was loved by reviewers at TechGearLab, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Projectors of 2020" roundup where it was named its "Best Affordable Portable Pico Projector", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

As for the BenQ HT2150ST - it was really well-received by reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes), a great source that's known for conducting high-quality in-depth testing. It performed great in its "Best Budget Projector for a Home Theater" roundup and was named its "Also great", which, on its own, makes it a product that warrants a closer look.

We examined all of the review data that we could find and first took a look at sources that reviewed both of them, like ProjectorCentral, and found that they haven't shown a preference for either product.

Then we checked which sources liked these two Home Projectors best and found that the ViewSonic M1 got its highest, 9, review score from reviewers at ProjectorCentral, whereas the BenQ HT2150ST earned its best score of 9 from ProjectorCentral.

Finally, we calculated their average review scores from all of the data we could find and compared those to Home Projectors in general. It turns out that the BenQ HT2150ST, with its 8.8 average, got reviewed considerably better than most of its competition - the overall average for Home Projectors being 8.0 out of 10 points - whereas the ViewSonic M1 performed worse than most, with an average review score of 6.6.

However, it's worth pointing out that a direct ViewSonic M1 vs. BenQ HT2150ST comparison might not be entirely fair, because some sources have a tendency of not taking value for money into account when reviewing products.
