3 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other projectors of this age and type have a built-in speaker, including the PG-LW3500.

Different projectors with a built-in speaker which you might want to also look at include a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the P300 Pico ($359.99), or the LED Showtime 3D both from AAXA Technologies or the Optoma EX855.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the PG-LW3500 is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most common native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the PG-LW3500 native projector resolutions range from XGA (1024x768) to WUXGA (1920x1200).

It is worth considering alternative multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) including a higher scoring data projector such as the AAXA Technologies LED Showtime 3D, the Hitachi CPWX12WN, or the Panasonic PT-DW640 ($5,538.92).

If the resolution of this projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-DZ680 ($9,599.00) (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated),WSVGA (1024x576 and higher rated) and higher rated), the NEC NP-PA500 ($583.51) (XGA (1024x768 and higher rated),WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Sony VPL-FH36 ($3,899.95) (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the similar spec projectors that are a comparable age to the PG-LW3500 do not support Full HD projection, including the Sharp PG-LW3500.

Alternative multimedia projectors with a Full HD projection that you might want to also look at include the NP-PA550, or the NP-PA500 ($583.51) both from NEC or the Sharp PG-LW3000.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The PG-LW3500 does not support 3D image projection, although this is within the context that most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PG-LW3500 also do not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in different multimedia projectors with a 3D image projection including the Optoma EX855, the Mitsubishi Electric EW330U, or the Sharp PG-LW3000.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most of the data projectors that are a comparable age to the PG-LW3500 do not support WiFi connectivity, including the PG-LW3500.

We compared all the other projectors with a WiFi connectivity to this data projector and we think the Casio XJ-A256, the Panasonic PT-VX400 ($129.75), or the Epson PowerLite 935W ($906.99) are also worth considering.

Loud Noise Level

Projectors of this spec and age have noise levels of between 19dB and 40dB. The Sharp PG-LW3500 has one of the louder noise levels (39 decibels) amongst 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors of this age.

It is worth also looking at other 39dB noise level projectors including the Sharp PG-LW3000, the Epson PowerLite 935W ($906.99), or the Panasonic PT-DX810 ($5,809.99) which have a better Kagoo Rating™.
