6 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501X

3D

The Viewsonic PS501X supports 3D, and so do the Benq HT2150ST, the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600, whereas the Epson V11H848020 does not. More ...

3D compatible projectors are able to display 3D content. Most projectors will require you to wear special glasses in order to view the 3D effect.

A 3D projector allows you to view the huge range of 3D films and content that is now available.

Built-in Speaker

The Viewsonic PS501X has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq HT2150ST, the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600), however the Epson V11H848020 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.

Handheld Remote Control

The Viewsonic PS501X has a handheld remote control, and so do the Epson V11H848020, the LG PH550 and the Optoma X600, but the Benq HT2150ST does not. 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 PS501X has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the Benq HT2150ST scored 85, the Epson V11H848020 scored 81, the LG PH550 scored 87 and the Optoma X600 scored 86.

17 Months Newer

The Viewsonic PS501X was released two years ago, but the Benq HT2150ST was released four years ago, the Epson V11H848020 was released four years ago, the LG PH550 was released four years ago and the Optoma X600 was released seven years ago

$12 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The Viewsonic PS501X is $6 cheaper to run than the Benq HT2150ST, $4 cheaper to run than the Epson V11H848020 and $12 cheaper to run than the Optoma X600 over five years. More ...

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501X

Lower Resolution

The Viewsonic PS501X has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), and so is the Epson V11H848020, which is half as high resolution as the Benq HT2150ST (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.

Louder Noise Level

The Viewsonic PS501X has a noise level of 32, but the Benq HT2150ST is a 29dB projector (3dB quieter), the Epson V11H848020 is a 37dB projector (5dB 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 PS501X has a high (22000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Benq HT2150ST and the Epson V11H848020), 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

Viewsonic PS501X is only 3 brightness. That's 1,200 ANSI lumens brighter than the Benq HT2150ST (2,200 ANSI Lumens), 2,850 ANSI lumens brighter than the LG PH550 (550 ANSI Lumens) and 2,600 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.

36% Smaller Bulb Power

The Viewsonic PS501X is a 200 lamp power projector. That's 40W smaller than the Benq HT2150ST (240W) 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.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Viewsonic PS501X has a service life of lamp of 5. That's 1,500h longer than the Benq HT2150ST (3,500h), 1,000h shorter than the Epson V11H848020 (6,000h), 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.

$133 More Expensive

The Viewsonic PS501X is more expensive than the LG PH550 by $133.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 8 shops sells the Viewsonic PS501X, however 12 retailers sell the LG PH550. More ...

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

The Viewsonic PS501X has an average user rating of 95%, but the Epson V11H848020 has an average user rating of 100% (based on 3 reviews).

Worse Brand

Viewsonic projectors have an average rating of only 89.7%, however Benq has an average rating of 92.1%, Epson has an average rating of 95% and Optoma has an average rating of 94.1%.

The Viewsonic PS501X is 292mm wide, 115mm tall, 236mm deep and weighs 2.6kg.

Smaller Bulb Power

Benq HT2150ST is only 240 lamp power, but the Optoma X600 is a 310W lamp power projector (70W bigger) and the Viewsonic PS501X is a 200W lamp power projector (40W smaller). More ...

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

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.
