10 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic M1

Quieter Noise Level

The Viewsonic M1 is a 25dB projector. That's 5dB quieter than the Asus ZenBeam E1 (30dB), 8dB quieter than the Benq MS535A (33dB), 14dB quieter than the DELL 1430X (39dB) and 7dB quieter than the Epson EHTW9100W (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.

Full HD

The Viewsonic M1 supports full HD (as does the Epson EHTW9100W), whereas the Asus ZenBeam E1, the Benq MS535A and the DELL 1430X 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.

Card Reader Integrated

The Viewsonic M1 has a card reader integrated, but the Asus ZenBeam E1, the Benq MS535A, the DELL 1430X and the Epson EHTW9100W do not. More ...

'Card Reader Integrated' denotes whether the projector comes with an inbuilt reader for memory cards or not.

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 Viewsonic M1 has a built-in speaker, and so do the Asus ZenBeam E1, the Benq MS535A and the DELL 1430X, whereas the Epson EHTW9100W 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 Viewsonic M1 has a handheld remote control (as do the Benq MS535A, the DELL 1430X and the Epson EHTW9100W), however the Asus ZenBeam E1 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 M1 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the Asus ZenBeam E1 scored 83, the Benq MS535A scored 82, the DELL 1430X scored 82 and the Epson EHTW9100W scored 82.

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.

Five More Awards

The Viewsonic M1 has received 5 awards from expert review sites, whereas the Asus ZenBeam E1 has received 3 awards, the Benq MS535A has received no awards, the DELL 1430X has received 1 award and the Epson EHTW9100W has received no awards.

Slightly Better Expert Reviews

The Viewsonic M1 has an average expert review score of 76% based on 43 reviews, however the Asus ZenBeam E1 has an average rating of 69% (based on 27 reviews) and the DELL 1430X has an average rating of 74% (based on 3 reviews).

1 Expert Review Site Gave It a Higher Review Score

Projectorcentral.com all gave the Viewsonic M1 a better review score. More ...

Projectorcentral.com: Viewsonic M1 = 100% vs DELL 1430X = 91%

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic M1

Only 1920 X 1080 (Full HD) Resolution

The Viewsonic M1 has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), but the Benq MS535A 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.

Lower Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic M1 has a very low (500:1) contrast ratio, which is 3 times lower contrast ratio as the Asus ZenBeam E1 (medium), 4 times lower contrast ratio as the Benq MS535A (high), half as high contrast ratio as the DELL 1430X (low) and 5 times lower contrast ratio as the Epson EHTW9100W (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.

3,350 ANSI Lumens Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Viewsonic M1 has a projector brightness of 250 ANSI lumens, however the Asus ZenBeam E1 is a 150 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (100 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Benq MS535A is a 3,600 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (3,350 ANSI lumens brighter), the DELL 1430X is a 3,200 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,950 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Epson EHTW9100W is a 2,400 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,150 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.

More Expensive by $5

The Viewsonic M1 is $5 more expensive than the Epson EHTW9100W.

Older by 10 Months

The Viewsonic M1 is 10 months older than the Asus ZenBeam E1 and four months older than the Benq MS535A.

User Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The Viewsonic M1's average user score is only 76%, however the Asus ZenBeam E1's is 80% (based on 6 reviews) and the Benq MS535A's is 79% (based on 23 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The Viewsonic M1's average overall score is only 78%, however the Benq MS535A's is 79% (based on 23 reviews).

Worse Brand

Viewsonic projectors have an average rating of only 89.2%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 90% and Epson has an average rating of 95%.

1 Expert Review Site Gave It a Lower Review Score

Projectorcentral.com all gave the Viewsonic M1 a lower review score. More ...

Projectorcentral.com: Viewsonic M1 = 90% vs DELL 1430X = 91%

The cheapest price that we could find for the M1 in the US is $149.99 and in total we found 15 prices for it.

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq MS535A

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Resolution

The Benq MS535A has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA), however the Asus ZenBeam E1 only has a projector native resolution of 854 x 480 (WVGA), the DELL 1430X only has a projector native resolution of 1024 x 768 (XGA), the Epson EHTW9100W only has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the Viewsonic M1 only has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD). 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.

3D

The Benq MS535A supports 3D (as does the Epson EHTW9100W), however the Asus ZenBeam E1, the DELL 1430X and the Viewsonic M1 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.

Built-in Speaker

The Benq MS535A has a built-in speaker, and so do the Asus ZenBeam E1, the DELL 1430X and the Viewsonic M1, but the Epson EHTW9100W 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 Benq MS535A is ceiling mountable, but the Asus ZenBeam E1, the DELL 1430X, the Epson EHTW9100W and the Viewsonic M1 are not. More ...

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

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq MS535A

8dB Louder Noise Level

The Benq MS535A is a 33dB projector. That's 3dB louder than the Asus ZenBeam E1 (30dB), 6dB quieter than the DELL 1430X (39dB), 1dB louder than the Epson EHTW9100W (32dB) and 8dB louder than the Viewsonic M1 (25dB). 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 Benq MS535A has a high (13000:1) contrast ratio, but the Epson EHTW9100W 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.

16% Smaller Bulb Power

The Benq MS535A has a bulb power of 203W, however the DELL 1430X is a 240W lamp power projector (37W bigger) and the Epson EHTW9100W is a 230W lamp power projector (27W 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

Benq MS535A is only 5h lamp service life, but the DELL 1430X is a 3,000h lamp service life projector (2,000h shorter), the Epson EHTW9100W is a 4,000h lamp service life projector (1,000h shorter) and the Viewsonic M1 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (25,000h 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Benq MS535A has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the Asus ZenBeam E1 scored 83 and the Viewsonic M1 scored 86.

More Expensive by $32

The Benq MS535A is $32 more expensive than the Epson EHTW9100W and $27 more expensive than the Viewsonic M1.

Fewer Sellers

The Benq MS535A is only stocked by 2 sellers, but the Asus ZenBeam E1 is stocked by 4 retailers and the Viewsonic M1 is stocked by 15 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Six Months

The Benq MS535A is six months older than the Asus ZenBeam E1.

User Review Rating is Marginally Worse

The average user rating of the Benq MS535A is only 79%, whereas the average user rating of the Asus ZenBeam E1 is 80% (based on 6 reviews).

Worse Brand
