Our review analysis indicates that Viewsonic PS501W has very good user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this multimedia projector to others.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501W

3D

The Viewsonic PS501W supports 3D, and so do the Benq TH585 and the LG PH550, but the Infocus IN1146 and the Sony VPLPHZ10 do 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 PS501W has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq TH585, the Infocus IN1146 and the LG PH550), whereas the Sony VPLPHZ10 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 PS501W has a handheld remote control, and so do the Infocus IN1146, the LG PH550 and the Sony VPLPHZ10, however the Benq TH585 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!

22% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The Viewsonic PS501W is $17 cheaper to run than the Benq TH585 over five years. More ...

Better At Producing a High Quality Picture

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Viewsonic PS501W was better at producing a high quality picture. Several people thought that it had good picture quality and colour saturation.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501W

Only 1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The Viewsonic PS501W has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), which is half as high resolution as the Benq TH585 (1920 x 1080 (Full HD)), half as high resolution as the Infocus IN1146 (1600 x 1200) and half as high resolution as the Sony VPLPHZ10 (1920 x 1200 (WUXGA)). 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 PS501W has a noise level of 32dB, however the Benq TH585 is a 35dB projector (3dB louder), the Infocus IN1146 is a 34dB projector (2dB louder), the LG PH550 is a 24dB projector (8dB quieter) and the Sony VPLPHZ10 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 PS501W has a high (22000:1) contrast ratio, whereas the LG PH550 and the Sony VPLPHZ10 have 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 PS501W has a projector brightness of 3 ANSI lumens. That's 100 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq TH585 (3,500 ANSI Lumens), 2,400 ANSI lumens brighter than the Infocus IN1146 (1,000 ANSI Lumens), 2,850 ANSI lumens brighter than the LG PH550 (550 ANSI Lumens) and 1,600 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Sony VPLPHZ10 (5,000 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.

25,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Viewsonic PS501W is a 5h lamp service life projector. That's 1,000h longer than the Benq TH585 (4,000h), 25,000h shorter than the Infocus IN1146 and the LG PH550 (30,000h) and 15,000h shorter than the Sony VPLPHZ10 (20,000h). 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 Viewsonic PS501W has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Infocus IN1146 scored 86, the LG PH550 scored 86 and the Sony VPLPHZ10 scored 89.

$31 More Expensive

The Viewsonic PS501W is more expensive than the LG PH550 by $31.

Less Retailers

Only 2 retailers sells the Viewsonic PS501W, whereas 4 stores sell the Benq TH585, 6 retailers sell the LG PH550 and 8 stores sell the Sony VPLPHZ10. More ...

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

The Viewsonic PS501W is older than the Benq TH585 by 10 months.

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The Viewsonic PS501W's average user rating is 88%, however the Infocus IN1146's is 90% (based on 4 reviews), the LG PH550's is 89% (based on 359 reviews) and the Sony VPLPHZ10's is 100% (based on 3 reviews).

Lower Overall Review Score

The Viewsonic PS501W's average overall rating is 88%, however the Infocus IN1146's is 91% (based on 8 reviews) and the Sony VPLPHZ10's is 97% (based on 6 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 6.9% of 29 customers recommend the Viewsonic PS501W, whereas 37% of 427 customers recommend the LG PH550.

Worse Brand

Viewsonic projectors have an average rating of only 89.3%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 90.1% and Sony has an average rating of 90.7%.

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

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The Benq TH585 has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), and so does the LG PH550, but the Infocus IN1146, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W do not. More ...

The Benq TH585 is five years newer than the Infocus IN1146, three years newer than the LG PH550, two years newer than the Sony VPLPHZ10 and 10 months newer than the Viewsonic PS501W

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq TH585

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Resolution

Only Medium (10000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Benq TH585 has a medium (10000:1) contrast ratio, and so is the Infocus IN1146, which is half as high contrast ratio as the LG PH550 and the Sony VPLPHZ10 (very high). More ...

The Benq TH585 is a 3 ANSI lumens brightness projector, whereas the Infocus IN1146 is a 1,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,500 ANSI lumens dimmer), the LG PH550 is a 550 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,950 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Sony VPLPHZ10 is a 5,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (1,500 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 3,400 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (100 ANSI lumens dimmer). More ...

12 Reasons For for Choosing the Sony VPLPHZ10

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Resolution

The Sony VPLPHZ10 has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), but the Benq TH585 only has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), the Infocus IN1146 only has a projector native resolution of 1600 x 1200, the LG PH550 only has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p) and the Viewsonic PS501W only 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.

Higher Contrast Ratio

The Sony VPLPHZ10 has a very high (500000:1) contrast ratio, and so is the LG PH550, which is twice as high contrast ratio as the Benq TH585 and the Infocus IN1146 (medium). 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.

Full HD

The Sony VPLPHZ10 supports full HD (as does the Benq TH585), whereas the Infocus IN1146, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W do not 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.

Ethernet LAN

The Sony VPLPHZ10 has an Ethernet LAN, whereas the Benq TH585, the Infocus IN1146, 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.

Ceiling Mountable

The Sony VPLPHZ10 is ceiling mountable, whereas the Benq TH585, the Infocus IN1146, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W 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.

Handheld Remote Control

The Sony VPLPHZ10 has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN1146, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W), however the Benq TH585 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 Sony VPLPHZ10 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, however the Benq TH585 scored 85, the Infocus IN1146 scored 86, the LG PH550 scored 86 and the Viewsonic PS501W scored 85.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Much Better Expert Reviews

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony VPLPHZ10

13% Louder Noise Level

The Sony VPLPHZ10 is a 28dB projector. That's 7dB quieter than the Benq TH585 (35dB), 6dB quieter than the Infocus IN1146 (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.

10,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Sony VPLPHZ10 is a 20h lamp service life projector, whereas the Benq TH585 is a 4,000h lamp service life projector (16,000h shorter), the Infocus IN1146 and the LG PH550 are both 30,000h lamp service life projectors (10,000h longer) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 5,000h lamp service life projector (15,000h 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Sony VPLPHZ10 does not have a built-in speaker, however the Benq TH585, the Infocus IN1146, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W 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.

More Expensive by $480

The Sony VPLPHZ10 is $400 more expensive than the Benq TH585, $399 more expensive than the Infocus IN1146, $480 more expensive than the LG PH550 and $449 more expensive than the Viewsonic PS501W.

Older by Over Two Years

The Sony VPLPHZ10 is two years older than the Benq TH585 and 14 months older than the Viewsonic PS501W.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Infocus IN1146

Card Reader Integrated

The Infocus IN1146 has a card reader integrated, but the Benq TH585, the LG PH550, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W do not have this feature. More ...

A memory card is a good way to easily load a film into the projector to watch, without having to hook it up to a computer first.

Built-in Speaker

The Infocus IN1146 has a built-in speaker (as do the Benq TH585, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W), whereas the Sony VPLPHZ10 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.

9 Reasons For for Choosing the LG PH550

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.

Higher Contrast Ratio

The LG PH550 has a very high (100000:1) contrast ratio, and so is the Sony VPLPHZ10, which is twice as high contrast ratio as the Benq TH585 and the Infocus IN1146 (medium). 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.

3D

The LG PH550 supports 3D (as do the Benq TH585 and the Viewsonic PS501W), whereas the Infocus IN1146 and the Sony VPLPHZ10 do not support this feature. More ...

Handheld Remote Control

The LG PH550 has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN1146, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W), but the Benq TH585 does not have this feature. More ...
