12 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq HT2150ST

15% Bigger Bulb Power

The Benq HT2150ST has a bulb power of 240W, however the Epson PowerLite 1761W is only a 205W lamp power projector (35W smaller) and the Viewsonic PS501W is only a 200W lamp power projector (40W smaller). More ...

Built-in Speaker

The Benq HT2150ST has a built-in speaker, and so do the Epson PowerLite 1761W, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W, but the Sony VPLPHZ10 does not. More ...

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

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.

More ...

A brighter 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

More ...

More Expensive by $364

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic PS501W

11 Reasons For for Choosing the LG PH550

40% Quieter Noise Level

The LG PH550 is a 24dB projector. That's 5dB quieter than the Benq HT2150ST (29dB), 16dB quieter than the Epson PowerLite 1761W (40dB), 4dB quieter than the Sony VPLPHZ10 (28dB) and 8dB 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.

Higher Contrast Ratio

The LG PH550 has a very high (100000:1) contrast ratio, and so is the Sony VPLPHZ10, which is 3 times higher contrast ratio as the Epson PowerLite 1761W (low). 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 HT2150ST and the Viewsonic PS501W), whereas the Epson PowerLite 1761W and the Sony VPLPHZ10 do not support this feature. 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.

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The LG PH550 has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), and so does the Benq HT2150ST, however the Epson PowerLite 1761W, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W do not. 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, and so do the Benq HT2150ST, the Epson PowerLite 1761W and the Viewsonic PS501W, however the Sony VPLPHZ10 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.

Handheld Remote Control

The LG PH550 has a handheld remote control (as do the Epson PowerLite 1761W, the Sony VPLPHZ10 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!

Cheaper by $55

The LG PH550 costs $325.00, whereas the Benq HT2150ST is $689.00, the Epson PowerLite 1761W is $379.95, the Sony VPLPHZ10 is $899.00 and the Viewsonic PS501W is $449.99.

More Shops Are Selling It

Four More Awards

The LG PH550 has received 4 awards from expert review sites, however the Benq HT2150ST has received 1 award, the Epson PowerLite 1761W has received no awards, the Sony VPLPHZ10 has received 3 awards and the Viewsonic PS501W has received no awards.

More Customers Recommend It

51.7% of 211 customers recommend the LG PH550, however only 8% of 137 customers recommend the Benq HT2150ST and only 25% of 8 customers recommend the Viewsonic PS501W.

Has a Better Price

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG PH550

Lower Resolution

More ...

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

More ...

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 does the the Epson PowerLite 1761W), but the Benq HT2150ST, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W do. More ...

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

9 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 HT2150ST only has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p), the Epson PowerLite 1761W and the Viewsonic PS501W have a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and the LG PH550 only has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p).

Ethernet LAN

The Sony VPLPHZ10 has an Ethernet LAN, whereas the Benq HT2150ST, the Epson PowerLite 1761W, 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, and so is the Epson PowerLite 1761W, whereas the Benq HT2150ST, 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 Epson PowerLite 1761W, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W), however 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!

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Better User Reviews

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Sony VPLPHZ10

13% Louder Noise Level

The Sony VPLPHZ10 is a 28dB projector. That's 1dB quieter than the Benq HT2150ST (29dB), 12dB quieter than the Epson PowerLite 1761W (40dB), 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 does not have a built-in speaker, however the Benq HT2150ST, the Epson PowerLite 1761W, 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.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Epson PowerLite 1761W

Wi-Fi

The Epson PowerLite 1761W supports Wi-Fi, whereas the Benq HT2150ST, the LG PH550, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W do not. More ...

Wi-Fi projectors can connect to your local WiFi network which means that you display content from other devices connected to the same network.

Wi-Fi projectors allow you display content from other devices connected to the same network without the need to use a cable.

Built-in Speaker

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a built-in speaker, and so do the Benq HT2150ST, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PS501W, whereas the Sony VPLPHZ10 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.

Ceiling Mountable

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is ceiling mountable, and so is the Sony VPLPHZ10, whereas the Benq HT2150ST, 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 Epson PowerLite 1761W has a handheld remote control (as do the LG PH550, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W), however 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 Brand

Epson projectors have an average rating of 95%, whereas Benq only has an average rating of 90.2%, LG only has an average rating of 80.2%, Sony only has an average rating of 93.2% and Viewsonic only has an average rating of 89.9%.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Epson PowerLite 1761W

Only 1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA) (as is the Viewsonic PS501W), but the Benq HT2150ST has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the Sony VPLPHZ10 has a projector native resolution of 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.

Louder Noise Level

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 40dB projector. That's 11dB louder than the Benq HT2150ST (29dB), 16dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB), 12dB louder than the Sony VPLPHZ10 (28dB) and 8dB 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.

Lower Contrast Ratio

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a low (2000:1) contrast ratio, which is half as high contrast ratio as the Benq HT2150ST and the Viewsonic PS501W (high) and 3 times lower contrast ratio as the LG PH550 and the Sony VPLPHZ10 (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.

The Epson PowerLite 1761W has a projector brightness of 2 ANSI lumens, however the Benq HT2150ST is a 2,200 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (400 ANSI lumens dimmer), the LG PH550 is a 550 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,050 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Sony VPLPHZ10 is a 5,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,400 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 3,400 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (800 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.

Smaller Bulb Power

Epson PowerLite 1761W is only 205W lamp power, but the Benq HT2150ST is a 240W lamp power projector (35W bigger) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 200W lamp power projector (5W 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.

26,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Epson PowerLite 1761W is a 4h lamp service life projector, whereas the Benq HT2150ST is a 3,500h lamp service life projector (500h shorter), the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (26,000h longer), the Sony VPLPHZ10 is a 20,000h lamp service life projector (16,000h longer) and the Viewsonic PS501W is a 5,000h lamp service life projector (1,000h 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 Epson PowerLite 1761W does not support full HD (As does the the LG PH550), however the Benq HT2150ST, the Sony VPLPHZ10 and the Viewsonic PS501W do. More ...

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