10 Reasons For

Acceptable Noise Level

A number of LG PW1500G reviewers who reviewed the product thought it was quiet. Jarno mentioned in their review of the LG PW1500G this month “Its relative big for an minibeam, its relative silent”. Jarno also mentioned “The PH550g is more silent, ok the PW1500g is of course brighter”.

Easy to Use

One LG PW1500G reviewer reckoned that the product was easy to setup. Gergely Molnar wrote a few weeks ago “The projector has great picture and easy to setup” and scored the product 5 stars.

Good Sound Quality

One LG PW1500G reviewer said in their reviews that the LG PW1500G had good sound quality. This year Gergely Molnar scored the product 5 stars and said on Amazon “The bluetooth sound out is a plus”.

LG Has Good Reviews for Its Data Projectors

LG is one of the better rated projector brands according to average reviews from experts and users, and LG also has good ratings for its projectors.

Good Product Quality

One LG PW1500G reviewer concluded that the product was good quality.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that came out in the last year, the PW1500G supports 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the HD26LV, the X344, or the W344 all from Optoma which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG PW1500G has a built-in speaker. Most of the other new projectors also have a built-in speaker.

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to consider include the LS830 ($2,999.99), or the 3500LM both from Viewsonic or the Vivitek DU3341 which has better reviews.

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The lamp service lives of new similar spec data projectors range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average lamp service life is 6,900h. At 30,000 hours, the LG PW1500G has a very long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PW1500G.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest multimedia projector that has been available for a similar time to the PW1500G is 2.7g heavy, the heaviest is 28kg, and the average weight is 6.3kg. The PW1500G is one of the lighter new multimedia projectors (only 1.1 kilograms) amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The widths of multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PW1500G range from 110mm to 590mm. When compared to other new similar spec multimedia projectors, the width of the LG PW1500G of only 230.6 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

5 Reasons Against

Poor 3D Picture Quality

A few LG PW1500G reviewers thought the product did not have a good 3D picture quality. A few weeks ago Jarno said “Most downside in my case was the bad 3D quality with SKY 3D Side by Side Movies” in their review of the LG PW1500G. Jarno also wrote “Al lot of Tearing (Horizontal Line Running from Top to Bottom, every few seconds) In one Case (RIP Department) there was such a very bad 3D Resolution”.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as the PW1500G, the PW1500G does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the 3500LM, or the PJD7836HDL ($799.99) both from Viewsonic or the Vivitek DU3341 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PW1500G do not support WiFi connectivity. The PW1500G is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson Home Cinema 2045 ($699.99), the Panasonic PT-JW130, or the Sony MP-CL1 ($399.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PW1500G have projector brightness of between 37 ANSI lumens and 8,000 ANSI lumens. With a projector brightness of only 1,500 ANSI lumen, the LG PW1500G has one of the dimmer projector brightness amongst projectors of this age.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the W8000 (2,000 ANSI lumens), or the W1090 (2,000 ANSI lumens) both from Benq or the Sony VPL-HW45ES ($1,639.00) (1,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
