12 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic M1

Twice As High Resolution

The Viewsonic M1 has a projector native resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which is 5 times higher resolution as the Anker Nebula Capsule and the Asus ZenBeam E1 (854 x 480 (WVGA)), 4 times higher resolution as the Benq MS504A (800 x 600 (SVGA)) and twice as high resolution as the LG PH30JG (1280 x 720 (720p)). 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 Quieter Noise Level

The Viewsonic M1 has a noise level of 25dB, whereas the Anker Nebula Capsule and the Asus ZenBeam E1 are both 30dB projectors (5dB louder), the Benq MS504A is a 33dB projector (8dB louder) and the LG PH30JG is a 29dB projector (4dB louder). 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, and so does the Anker Nebula Capsule, but the Asus ZenBeam E1, the Benq MS504A and the LG PH30JG do not. 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 (as does the Anker Nebula Capsule), however the Asus ZenBeam E1, the Benq MS504A and the LG PH30JG do not have this feature. 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.

Handheld Remote Control

The Viewsonic M1 has a handheld remote control, and so do the Anker Nebula Capsule, the Benq MS504A and the LG PH30JG, whereas the Asus ZenBeam E1 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 M1 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the Anker Nebula Capsule scored 84, the Asus ZenBeam E1 scored 83, the Benq MS504A scored 84 and the LG PH30JG scored 84.

$30 Cheaper

The Viewsonic M1 is $95 cheaper than the Anker Nebula Capsule, $30 cheaper than the Asus ZenBeam E1, $159 cheaper than the Benq MS504A and $110 cheaper than the LG PH30JG.

More Shops Are Selling It

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

Five More Awards

The Viewsonic M1 has received 5 awards, but the Anker Nebula Capsule has received 3 awards, the Asus ZenBeam E1 has received 3 awards, the Benq MS504A has received no awards and the LG PH30JG has received 1 award.

Expert Reviews Are Marginally Better

Based on 43 reviews, the average expert review score of the Viewsonic M1 is 76%, whereas the average rating of the Anker Nebula Capsule is 73% (based on 47 reviews) and the average rating of the Asus ZenBeam E1 is 69% (based on 27 reviews).

1 Expert Review Site Gave It a Higher Review Score

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

Techgearlab.com: Viewsonic M1 = 49% vs Anker Nebula Capsule = 39%
Has a Better OK Noise Level

On average reviewers thought the Viewsonic M1 has a better OK noise level. Over 10 people thought that it was very noisy.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic M1

Only Very Low (500:1) Contrast Ratio

The Viewsonic M1 has a very low (500:1) contrast ratio (as is the Anker Nebula Capsule), but the Asus ZenBeam E1 has a medium contrast ratio, the Benq MS504A has a high contrast ratio and the LG PH30JG 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

The Viewsonic M1 is a 250 ANSI lumens brightness projector, and so does the LG PH30JG. That's 150 ANSI lumens brighter than the Anker Nebula Capsule (100 ANSI Lumens), 100 ANSI lumens brighter than the Asus ZenBeam E1 (150 ANSI Lumens) and 2,750 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MS504A (3,000 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.

Over One Year Older

The Viewsonic M1 is older than the Anker Nebula Capsule by 20 months and older than the Asus ZenBeam E1 by 10 months.

A Lot Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Viewsonic M1 is only 76%, whereas the average user rating of the Anker Nebula Capsule is 90% (based on 41 reviews), the Asus ZenBeam E1 is 80% (based on 6 reviews), the Benq MS504A is 91% (based on 150 reviews) and the LG PH30JG is 82% (based on 37 reviews).

A Lot Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Viewsonic M1 is only 78%, whereas the average overall rating of the Anker Nebula Capsule is 81% (based on 88 reviews), the Benq MS504A is 91% (based on 150 reviews) and the LG PH30JG is 83% (based on 40 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend It

Only 3.5% of 314 customers recommend the Viewsonic M1, but 52.3% of 44 customers recommend the LG PH30JG.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the LG PH30JG

Very High (100000:1) Contrast Ratio

The LG PH30JG has a very high (100000:1) contrast ratio, however the Anker Nebula Capsule and the Viewsonic M1 have a very low contrast ratio, the Asus ZenBeam E1 only has a medium contrast ratio and the Benq MS504A only has a 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.

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The LG PH30JG has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) (as do the Anker Nebula Capsule and the Asus ZenBeam E1), however the Benq MS504A and the Viewsonic M1 do not have this feature. More ...

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG PH30JG

Lower Resolution

The LG PH30JG has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p), which is half as high resolution as the Viewsonic M1 (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.

Louder Noise Level

The LG PH30JG has a noise level of 29dB, but the Anker Nebula Capsule and the Asus ZenBeam E1 are both 30dB projectors (1dB louder), the Benq MS504A is a 33dB projector (4dB louder) and the Viewsonic M1 is a 25dB 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.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Asus ZenBeam E1

Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL)

The Asus ZenBeam E1 has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), and so do the Anker Nebula Capsule and the LG PH30JG, however the Benq MS504A and the Viewsonic M1 do not. More ...

MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) is a protocol for streaming high-def video and images from a phone to the projector.

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Asus ZenBeam E1

Lower Resolution

The Asus ZenBeam E1 has a projector native resolution of 854 x 480 (WVGA) (as is the Anker Nebula Capsule), whereas the Benq MS504A has a projector native resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA), the LG PH30JG has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p) and the Viewsonic M1 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.

Louder Noise Level

The Asus ZenBeam E1 is a 30dB projector, and so does the Anker Nebula Capsule. That's 3dB quieter than the Benq MS504A (33dB), 1dB louder than the LG PH30JG (29dB) and 5dB 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.

Half As High Contrast Ratio

The Asus ZenBeam E1 has a medium (3500:1) contrast ratio, which is half as high contrast ratio as the LG PH30JG (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.

Hugely Dimmer Projector Brightness

Asus ZenBeam E1 is only 150 ANSI lumens brightness, but the Anker Nebula Capsule is a 100 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (50 ANSI lumens dimmer), the Benq MS504A is a 3,000 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,850 ANSI lumens brighter) and the LG PH30JG and the Viewsonic M1 are both 250 ANSI Lumens brightness projectors (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.

Does Not Support Full HD

The Asus ZenBeam E1 does not support full HD (As do the the Benq MS504A and the LG PH30JG), but the Anker Nebula Capsule and the Viewsonic M1 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.

Does Not Have a Handheld Remote Control

The Asus ZenBeam E1 does not have a handheld remote control, whereas the Anker Nebula Capsule, the Benq MS504A, the LG PH30JG and the Viewsonic M1 do. 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!

Worse Kagoo Score

The Asus ZenBeam E1 has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the Anker Nebula Capsule scored 84, the Benq MS504A scored 84, the LG PH30JG scored 84 and the Viewsonic M1 scored 86.

More Expensive by $30

The Asus ZenBeam E1 is $30 more expensive than the Viewsonic M1.

Not As Many Stockists

The Asus ZenBeam E1 is only stocked by 4 sellers, however the Viewsonic M1 is stocked by 15 stores. 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 10 Months

The Asus ZenBeam E1 is 10 months older than the Anker Nebula Capsule.

Two Less Awards

The Asus ZenBeam E1 has only received 3 awards, however the Viewsonic M1 has received 5 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Worse

The Asus ZenBeam E1 only has an average expert score of 69%, but the Anker Nebula Capsule has an average expert rating of 73% (based on 47 reviews) and the Viewsonic M1 has an average expert rating of 76% (based on 43 reviews).

User Review Rating is Much Worse

The Asus ZenBeam E1 has an average user score of 80%, but the Anker Nebula Capsule has an average user rating of 90% (based on 41 reviews), the Benq MS504A has an average user rating of 91% (based on 150 reviews) and the LG PH30JG has an average user rating of 82% (based on 37 reviews).

Worse Brand

Asus projectors have an average rating of only 79.5%, however Benq has an average rating of 90%, LG has an average rating of 80.3% and Viewsonic has an average rating of 89.2%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the ZenBeam E1 in the US is $179.99 and in total we found 4 prices for it.
