Owners report that Viewsonic PS501W has very good user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this projector to others.

3 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501W

Handheld Remote Control

The Viewsonic PS501W has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN124A, the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600), whereas the Benq HT2150ST does not have this feature. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!

Better Kagoo Score

The Viewsonic PS501W has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the Benq HT2150ST scored 86, the Infocus IN124A scored 83 and the Optoma X600 scored 85.

Newer by 19 Months

The Viewsonic PS501W is 19 months newer than the Benq HT2150ST, 19 months newer than the Infocus IN124A, two years newer than the LG PH550 and four years newer than the Optoma X600

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501W

Half As High Resolution

The Viewsonic PS501W has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), however the Benq HT2150ST has a projector native resolution of 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.

8dB Louder Noise Level

The Viewsonic PS501W is a 32dB projector. That's 3dB louder than the Benq HT2150ST (29dB), 2dB quieter than the Infocus IN124A (34dB), 8dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB) and 4dB louder than the Optoma X600 (28dB). 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 Viewsonic PS501W has a high (22000:1) contrast ratio, and so are the Benq HT2150ST and the Infocus IN124A, but 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.

2,600 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Viewsonic PS501W is a 3 ANSI lumens brightness projector, whereas the Benq HT2150ST is a 2,200 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,200 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Infocus IN124A is a 3,300 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (100 ANSI lumens dimmer), the LG PH550 is a 550 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,850 ANSI lumens dimmer) and the Optoma X600 is a 6,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,600 ANSI lumens brighter). 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.

110W Smaller Bulb Power

The Viewsonic PS501W has a bulb power of 200W, however the Benq HT2150ST and the Infocus IN124A are both 240W lamp power projectors (40W bigger) and the Optoma X600 is a 310W lamp power projector (110W bigger). 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.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Viewsonic PS501W is only 5h lamp service life, but the Benq HT2150ST and the Infocus IN124A are both 3,500h lamp service life projectors (1,500h shorter), the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (25,000h longer) and the Optoma X600 is a 2,500h lamp service life projector (2,500h shorter). 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.

More Expensive by $135

The Viewsonic PS501W is $69 more expensive than the Infocus IN124A and $135 more expensive than the LG PH550.

Fewer Sellers

The Viewsonic PS501W is only stocked by 4 retailers, but the LG PH550 is stocked by 6 stores. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by $1

Over five years the Viewsonic PS501W costs $58 to run which is $1 more than the Infocus IN124A. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is Worse

The average user rating of the Viewsonic PS501W is 88%, whereas the average user rating of the Benq HT2150ST is 94% (based on 166 reviews), the Infocus IN124A is 92% (based on 32 reviews), the LG PH550 is 89% (based on 359 reviews) and the Optoma X600 is 93% (based on 25 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The average overall rating of the Viewsonic PS501W is 88%, whereas the average overall rating of the Optoma X600 is 93% (based on 25 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 6.9% of 29 customers recommend the Viewsonic PS501W, but 8.6% of 209 customers recommend the Benq HT2150ST, 37.1% of 426 customers recommend the LG PH550 and 9.3% of 43 customers recommend the Optoma X600.

Worse Brand

Viewsonic projectors have an average rating of only 89%, but Benq has an average rating of 90.5% and Optoma has an average rating of 91.5%.

Has a Worse Picture Quality

On average reviewers thought the Viewsonic PS501W has a worse picture quality.

The Viewsonic PS501W is 292mm wide, 115mm tall, 236mm deep and weighs 2.6kg.

You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Only High (15000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Benq HT2150ST has a high (15000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Infocus IN124A and the Viewsonic PS501W), however 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.

Dimmer Projector Brightness

Benq HT2150ST is only 2 ANSI lumens brightness. That's 1,100 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Infocus IN124A (3,300 ANSI Lumens), 1,650 ANSI lumens brighter than the LG PH550 (550 ANSI Lumens), 3,800 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Optoma X600 (6,000 ANSI Lumens) and 1,200 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Viewsonic PS501W (3,400 ANSI Lumens). More ...

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Optoma X600

A Lot Bigger Bulb Power

The Optoma X600 is a 310W lamp power projector, whereas the Benq HT2150ST and the Infocus IN124A are both only 240W lamp power projectors (70W smaller) and the Viewsonic PS501W 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 Infocus IN124A, however the Benq HT2150ST, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W 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.

Handheld Remote Control

The Optoma X600 has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN124A, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W), but the Benq HT2150ST does not have this feature. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!

Better Overall Reviews

Based on 25 reviews, the Optoma X600 has an average overall review score of 93%, but the Benq HT2150ST has an average rating of 86% (based on 177 reviews), the Infocus IN124A has an average rating of 78% (based on 34 reviews), the LG PH550 has an average rating of 88% (based on 374 reviews) and the Viewsonic PS501W has an average rating of 88% (based on 29 reviews).

Better Brand

Optoma projectors have an average rating of 91.5%, however Benq only has an average rating of 90.5%, Infocus only has an average rating of 83.4%, LG only has an average rating of 80.5% and Viewsonic only has an average rating of 89%.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Optoma X600

Lower Resolution

The Optoma X600 has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) (as is the Infocus IN124A), whereas the Benq HT2150ST has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p), the LG PH550 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p) and the Viewsonic PS501W has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). 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.

Louder Noise Level

The Optoma X600 is a 28dB projector. That's 1dB quieter than the Benq HT2150ST (29dB), 6dB quieter than the Infocus IN124A (34dB), 4dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB) and 4dB quieter than the Viewsonic PS501W (32dB). 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.

Half As High 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.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Optoma X600 has a service life of lamp of 2h, however the Benq HT2150ST and the Infocus IN124A are both 3,500h lamp service life projectors (1,000h longer), the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (27,500h longer) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 5,000h lamp service life projector (2,500h 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 Infocus IN124A and the LG PH550), but the Benq HT2150ST and the Viewsonic PS501W 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 85, but the Benq HT2150ST scored 86, the LG PH550 scored 87 and the Viewsonic PS501W scored 87.

More Expensive by $797

The Optoma X600 is $531 more expensive than the Benq HT2150ST, $731 more expensive than the Infocus IN124A, $797 more expensive than the LG PH550 and $662 more expensive than the Viewsonic PS501W.

Not As Many Stockists

The Optoma X600 is only stocked by 3 shops, however the LG PH550 is stocked by 6 stores and the Viewsonic PS501W is stocked by 4 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this projector.
Older by Over Four Years

The Optoma X600 is three years older than the Benq HT2150ST, three years older than the Infocus IN124A, two years older than the LG PH550 and four years older than the Viewsonic PS501W.

$13 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the Optoma X600 are $71 which is $6 more than the Benq HT2150ST, $13 more than the Infocus IN124A and $13 more than the Viewsonic PS501W. Show assumptions.

User Review Rating is a Little Worse

The Optoma X600 has an average user score of 93%, but the Benq HT2150ST has an average user rating of 94% (based on 166 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 9.3% of 43 customers recommend the Optoma X600, however 37.1% of 426 customers recommend the LG PH550.

Worse At Producing a High Quality Picture

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Optoma X600 was worse at producing a high quality picture.

The cheapest price that we could find for the X600 in the US is $1,200.00 and in total we found 3 prices for it.

Over five years the Infocus IN124A only costs $58 to run however the Benq HT2150ST costs $65 to run (13% more), the Optoma X600 costs $71 to run (23% more) and the Viewsonic PS501W costs $58 to run (1% more). More ...

16 Reasons Against for Choosing the Infocus IN124A

3 Times Lower Resolution

The Infocus IN124A has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA) (as is the Optoma X600), however the Benq HT2150ST has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p), the LG PH550 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p) and the Viewsonic PS501W has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). 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.

10dB Louder Noise Level

The Infocus IN124A is a 34dB projector. That's 5dB louder than the Benq HT2150ST (29dB), 10dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB), 6dB louder than the Optoma X600 (28dB) and 2dB louder than the Viewsonic PS501W (32dB). 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 Infocus IN124A has a high (14000:1) contrast ratio, and so are the Benq HT2150ST and the Viewsonic PS501W, but 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.

2,700 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Infocus IN124A is a 3 ANSI lumens brightness projector, whereas the Benq HT2150ST is a 2,200 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,100 ANSI lumens dimmer), the LG PH550 is a 550 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,750 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Optoma X600 is a 6,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,700 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 3,400 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (100 ANSI lumens brighter). 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.

23% Smaller Bulb Power

The Infocus IN124A has a bulb power of 240W (as does the Benq HT2150ST), however the Optoma X600 is a 310W lamp power projector (70W bigger) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 200W lamp power projector (40W 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.

Shorter Service Life of Lamp

Infocus IN124A is only 3h lamp service life (as does the Benq HT2150ST), but the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (26,500h longer), the Optoma X600 is a 2,500h lamp service life projector (1,000h shorter) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 5,000h lamp service life projector (1,500h 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 Infocus IN124A does not support full HD (As do the the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600), whereas the Benq HT2150ST and the Viewsonic PS501W do. More ...

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