6 Reasons For for Choosing the LG PH550

11dB Quieter Noise Level

The LG PH550 has a noise level of 24dB, whereas the Benq MW535A and the Viewsonic PJD6250L are both 32dB projectors (8dB louder), the Epson Home Cinema 3100 is a 35dB projector (11dB louder) and the Optoma X600 is a 28dB projector (4dB louder). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Very High (100000:1) Contrast Ratio

The LG PH550 has a very high (100000:1) contrast ratio, but the Benq MW535A, the Epson Home Cinema 3100 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L have a high contrast ratio and the Optoma X600 only has a medium contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The LG PH550 has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) (as does the Viewsonic PJD6250L), but the Benq MW535A, the Epson Home Cinema 3100 and the Optoma X600 do not have this feature. More ...

MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) is a protocol for streaming high-def video and images from a phone to the projector.

Built-in Speaker

The LG PH550 has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq MW535A, the Optoma X600 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L), but the Epson Home Cinema 3100 does not have this feature. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

Better Kagoo Score

The LG PH550 has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the Benq MW535A scored 86, the Epson Home Cinema 3100 scored 85, the Optoma X600 scored 86 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L scored 86.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG PH550

Half As High Resolution

The LG PH550 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p), which is half as high resolution as the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

91% Dimmer Projector Brightness

The LG PH550 is a 550 ANSI lumens brightness projector. That's 3,050 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MW535A (3,600 ANSI Lumens), 2,050 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (2,600 ANSI Lumens), 5,450 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma X600 (6,000 ANSI Lumens) and 2,750 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Viewsonic PJD6250L (3,300 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Does Not Support Full HD

The LG PH550 does not support full HD (As do the the Optoma X600 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L), whereas the Benq MW535A and the Epson Home Cinema 3100 support this feature. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

$82 More Expensive

The LG PH550 is more expensive than the Benq MW535A by $82 and more expensive than the Viewsonic PJD6250L by $3.

Over Two Years Older

The LG PH550 is older than the Benq MW535A by three years and older than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 by six months.

Worse Brand

LG projectors have an average rating of only 80.9%, but Benq has an average rating of 95%, Epson has an average rating of 94.4%, Optoma has an average rating of 93.3% and Viewsonic has an average rating of 92%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PH550 in the US is $402.13 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq MW535A

Built-in Speaker

The Benq MW535A has a built-in speaker (as do the LG PH550, the Optoma X600 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L), whereas the Epson Home Cinema 3100 does not have this feature. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

Ceiling Mountable

The Benq MW535A is a ceiling mountable projector (as is the Epson Home Cinema 3100), whereas the LG PH550, the Optoma X600 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L are not. More ...

'Ceiling Mountable' indicates whether the projector is capable of being mounted to the ceiling or not.

Ceiling mounting is the best way of assuring the projector always has a clear line of sight to the projecting surface.

$79 Cheaper

The Benq MW535A costs $82.13 less than the LG PH550, costs $1,142.99 less than the Optoma X600 and costs $79 less than the Viewsonic PJD6250L.

Two Years Newer

The Benq MW535A was released two years later than the Epson Home Cinema 3100, released three years later than the LG PH550, released five years later than the Optoma X600 and released three years later than the Viewsonic PJD6250L

20% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The Benq MW535A only costs $53 to run over five years but the Epson Home Cinema 3100 costs $55 to run (2% more), the Optoma X600 costs $67 to run (25% more) and the Viewsonic PJD6250L costs $56 to run (5% more). More ...

Better Brand

Benq projectors have an average rating of 95%, whereas Epson only has an average rating of 94.4%, LG only has an average rating of 80.9%, Optoma only has an average rating of 93.3% and Viewsonic only has an average rating of 92%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq MW535A

Only 1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The Benq MW535A has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), which is half as high resolution as the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

20% Louder Noise Level

The Benq MW535A has a noise level of 32dB (as does the Viewsonic PJD6250L), however the Epson Home Cinema 3100 is a 35dB projector (3dB louder), the LG PH550 is a 24dB projector (8dB quieter) and the Optoma X600 is a 28dB projector (4dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Only High (15000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Benq MW535A has a high (15000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Epson Home Cinema 3100 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L), whereas the LG PH550 has a very high contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Vastly Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Benq MW535A has a projector brightness of 3 ANSI lumens. That's 1,000 ANSI lumens brighter than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (2,600 ANSI Lumens), 3,050 ANSI lumens brighter than the LG PH550 (550 ANSI Lumens), 2,400 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma X600 (6,000 ANSI Lumens) and 300 ANSI lumens brighter than the Viewsonic PJD6250L (3,300 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Smaller Bulb Power

Benq MW535A is only 210W lamp power. That's 40W smaller than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (250W), 100W smaller than the Optoma X600 (310W) and 10W bigger than the Viewsonic PJD6250L (200W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

25,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Benq MW535A is a 5h lamp service life projector, and so does the Viewsonic PJD6250L. That's 1,500h longer than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (3,500h), 25,000h shorter than the LG PH550 (30,000h) and 2,500h longer than the Optoma X600 (2,500h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Benq MW535A has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the LG PH550 scored 87.

Less Retailers

Only 2 stores sells the Benq MW535A, whereas 8 sellers sell the LG PH550 and 3 retailers sell the Optoma X600. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.

The cheapest price that we could find for the MW535A in the US is $320.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Optoma X600

110W Bigger Bulb Power

Optoma X600 is 310W lamp power, but the Benq MW535A is only a 210W lamp power projector (100W smaller), the Epson Home Cinema 3100 is only a 250W lamp power projector (60W smaller) and the Viewsonic PJD6250L is only a 200W lamp power projector (110W smaller). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Ethernet LAN

The Optoma X600 has an Ethernet LAN, and so does the Viewsonic PJD6250L, whereas the Benq MW535A, the Epson Home Cinema 3100 and the LG PH550 do not. More ...

'Ethernet LAN' denotes whether the projector has the native capability to connect to the local network, in order to receive movie files and the like from your computer.

Built-in Speaker

The Optoma X600 has a built-in speaker, and so do the Benq MW535A, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L, whereas the Epson Home Cinema 3100 does not. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Optoma X600

Only 1024 X 768 (XGA) Resolution

The Optoma X600 has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) (as is the Viewsonic PJD6250L), but the Benq MW535A has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), the Epson Home Cinema 3100 has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the LG PH550 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

13% Louder Noise Level

The Optoma X600 is a 28dB projector. That's 4dB quieter than the Benq MW535A and the Viewsonic PJD6250L (32dB), 7dB quieter than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (35dB) and 4dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Lower Contrast Ratio

The Optoma X600 has a medium (10000:1) contrast ratio, which is half as high contrast ratio as the LG PH550 (very high). More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

27,500h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Optoma X600 is a 2h lamp service life projector, whereas the Benq MW535A and the Viewsonic PJD6250L are both 5,000h lamp service life projectors (2,500h longer), the Epson Home Cinema 3100 is a 3,500h lamp service life projector (1,000h longer) and the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (27,500h longer). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Optoma X600 does not support full HD (As do the the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PJD6250L), however the Benq MW535A and the Epson Home Cinema 3100 do. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Optoma X600 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the LG PH550 scored 87.

More Expensive by $1,143

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic PJD6250L

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) (as does the LG PH550), whereas the Benq MW535A, the Epson Home Cinema 3100 and the Optoma X600 do not have this feature. More ...

MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) is a protocol for streaming high-def video and images from a phone to the projector.

Ethernet LAN

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has an Ethernet LAN (as does the Optoma X600), whereas the Benq MW535A, the Epson Home Cinema 3100 and the LG PH550 do not have this feature. More ...

'Ethernet LAN' denotes whether the projector has the native capability to connect to the local network, in order to receive movie files and the like from your computer.

Built-in Speaker

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq MW535A, the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600), whereas the Epson Home Cinema 3100 does not have this feature. More ...

A projector with built in speakers is able to play sound as well as display images.

Built in speakers mean that you don't need a separate amplifier to play sound with the projector image.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic PJD6250L

Only 1024 X 768 (XGA) Resolution

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), and so is the Optoma X600, which is 3 times lower resolution as the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (1920 x 1080 (1080p)). More ...

The projector native resolution is the resolution of image that the projector is able to produce. The resolution is expressed as the number of horizontal pixels by the number of vertical pixels.

A projector with a higher native resolution will be able to display more detailed images such as HD content.

20% Louder Noise Level

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has a noise level of 32dB (as does the Benq MW535A), however the Epson Home Cinema 3100 is a 35dB projector (3dB louder), the LG PH550 is a 24dB projector (8dB quieter) and the Optoma X600 is a 28dB projector (4dB quieter). More ...

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Only High (22000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has a high (22000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Benq MW535A and the Epson Home Cinema 3100), whereas the LG PH550 has a very high contrast ratio. More ...

The contrast ratio is the ratio between the brightness of the brightest white and the brightness of darkest black that the projector can produce.

A higher contrast ratio means that the projector can produce images with greater contrast so that they will appear more vivid.

Vastly Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has a projector brightness of 3 ANSI lumens. That's 300 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MW535A (3,600 ANSI Lumens), 700 ANSI lumens brighter than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (2,600 ANSI Lumens), 2,750 ANSI lumens brighter than the LG PH550 (550 ANSI Lumens) and 2,700 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma X600 (6,000 ANSI Lumens). More ...

'Projector Brightness' is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Smaller Bulb Power

Viewsonic PJD6250L is only 200W lamp power. That's 10W smaller than the Benq MW535A (210W), 50W smaller than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (250W) and 110W smaller than the Optoma X600 (310W). More ...

'Bulb Power' denotes how powerful the bulb in the projector is, measured in watts (W).

A more powerful bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

25,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Viewsonic PJD6250L is a 5h lamp service life projector, and so does the Benq MW535A. That's 1,500h longer than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 (3,500h), 25,000h shorter than the LG PH550 (30,000h) and 2,500h longer than the Optoma X600 (2,500h). More ...

'Service Life' indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Viewsonic PJD6250L does not support full HD (As do the the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600), however the Benq MW535A and the Epson Home Cinema 3100 support this feature. More ...

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Full HD projectors can display full HD content such as films and HD TV.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Viewsonic PJD6250L has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the LG PH550 scored 87.

$79 More Expensive

The Viewsonic PJD6250L is more expensive than the Benq MW535A by $79.

Less Retailers

Only 2 shops sells the Viewsonic PJD6250L, whereas 8 retailers sell the LG PH550 and 3 stores sell the Optoma X600. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this projector and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over Two Years Older

The Viewsonic PJD6250L is older than the Benq MW535A by three years, older than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 by seven months and older than the LG PH550 by one month.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 5%

The running costs of the Viewsonic PJD6250L are $56 which is $3 more than the Benq MW535A and $1 more than the Epson Home Cinema 3100 over five years. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

Viewsonic projectors have an average rating of only 92%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 95%, Epson has an average rating of 94.4% and Optoma has an average rating of 93.3%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PJD6250L in the US is $399.00 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
