14 Reasons For for Choosing the LG PH550

40% Quieter Noise Level

The LG PH550 is a 24 projector. That's 16dB quieter than the Gigabyte BRIX (40dB), 8dB quieter than the Infocus IN112A and the Viewsonic PA503W (32dB) and 6dB quieter than the Optoma ML550 (30dB). 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, which is 5 times higher contrast ratio as the Gigabyte BRIX (very low) and twice as high contrast ratio as the Optoma ML550 (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 does the Optoma ML550), but the Gigabyte BRIX, the Infocus IN112A and the Viewsonic PA503W 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), whereas the Gigabyte BRIX, the Infocus IN112A, the Optoma ML550 and the Viewsonic PA503W do not. More ...

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

Handheld Remote Control

The LG PH550 has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN112A, the Optoma ML550 and the Viewsonic PA503W), however the Gigabyte BRIX 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!

Slightly Better Expert Reviews

The LG PH550 has an average expert review score of 84% based on 14 reviews, however the Gigabyte BRIX has an average rating of 76% (based on 116 reviews), the Optoma ML550 has an average rating of 83% (based on 12 reviews) and the Viewsonic PA503W has an average rating of 58% (based on 1 review).

More Customers Recommend it

55.1% of 198 customers recommend the LG PH550, whereas only 0.3% of 351 customers recommend the Gigabyte BRIX and only 20% of 20 customers recommend the Viewsonic PA503W.

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

Handheld Remote Control

The Viewsonic PA503W has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN112A, the LG PH550 and the Optoma ML550), however the Gigabyte BRIX 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 PA503W has received a Kagoo Score of 85, however the Gigabyte BRIX scored 82, the Infocus IN112A scored 81, the LG PH550 scored only 74 and the Optoma ML550 scored 79.

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.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic PA503W

Only 800 X 600 (SVGA) Resolution

The Viewsonic PA503W has a projector native resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA) (as is the Infocus IN112A), but the LG PH550 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p) and the Optoma ML550 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.

20% Louder Noise Level

The Viewsonic PA503W is a 32 projector, and so does the Infocus IN112A. That's 8dB quieter than the Gigabyte BRIX (40dB), 8dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB) and 2dB louder than the Optoma ML550 (30dB). 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 Viewsonic PA503W has a high (22000:1) contrast ratio, and so is the Infocus IN112A, whereas 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.

5W Smaller Bulb Power

Viewsonic PA503W is only 190 lamp power, but the Infocus IN112A is a 195W lamp power projector (5W 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.

25,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Viewsonic PA503W is a 5 lamp service life projector (as does the Infocus IN112A), whereas the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (25,000h longer) and the Optoma ML550 is a 20,000h lamp service life projector (15,000h 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.

More Expensive by $52

The Viewsonic PA503W is $52 more expensive than the Gigabyte BRIX.

Older by Two Months

The Viewsonic PA503W is two months older than the Infocus IN112A.

Expert Review Rating is Vastly Worse

User Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The Viewsonic PA503W's average user score is 96%, however the Infocus IN112A's is 98% (based on 9 reviews).

Less Customers Recommend it

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Optoma ML550

1280 X 800 (WXGA) Resolution

The Optoma ML550 has a projector native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA), but the Gigabyte BRIX only has a projector native resolution of 854 x 480 (WVGA), the Infocus IN112A and the Viewsonic PA503W have a projector native resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and the LG PH550 only has a projector native resolution of 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.

3D

The Optoma ML550 supports 3D (as does the LG PH550), but the Gigabyte BRIX, the Infocus IN112A and the Viewsonic PA503W 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.

Card Reader Integrated

The Optoma ML550 has a card reader integrated, but the Gigabyte BRIX, the Infocus IN112A, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PA503W 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.

Ceiling Mountable

The Optoma ML550 is ceiling mountable, and so is the Infocus IN112A, whereas the Gigabyte BRIX, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PA503W 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 Optoma ML550 has a handheld remote control (as do the Infocus IN112A, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PA503W), however the Gigabyte BRIX 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

Optoma projectors have an average rating of 94.3%, whereas Gigabyte only has an average rating of 73.8%, Infocus only has an average rating of 82.3%, LG only has an average rating of 80.7% and Viewsonic only has an average rating of 90.6%.

Better Techradar.com/au/ Review Score

Techradar.com/au/'s Optoma ML550 review gave it a score of 90%, whereas the Gigabyte BRIX only has a rating of 70% from the same site.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Optoma ML550

17% Louder Noise Level

The Optoma ML550 is a 30 projector. That's 10dB quieter than the Gigabyte BRIX (40dB), 2dB quieter than the Infocus IN112A and the Viewsonic PA503W (32dB) and 6dB louder than the LG PH550 (24dB). 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 Optoma ML550 has a medium (10000:1) contrast ratio, which is half as high contrast ratio as the LG PH550 (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.

Vastly Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Optoma ML550 has a projector brightness of 550 (as does the LG PH550), however the Infocus IN112A is a 3,500 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (2,950 ANSI lumens brighter) and the Viewsonic PA503W is a 3,600 ANSI Lumens brightness projector (3,050 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.

10,000h Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Optoma ML550 is a 20 lamp service life projector, whereas the Infocus IN112A and the Viewsonic PA503W are both 5,000h lamp service life projectors (15,000h shorter) and the LG PH550 is a 30,000h lamp service life projector (10,000h 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 Optoma ML550 does not support full HD (As do the the Gigabyte BRIX, the Infocus IN112A and the LG PH550), however the Viewsonic PA503W does. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Optoma ML550 has received a Kagoo Score of 79, however the Gigabyte BRIX scored 82, the Infocus IN112A scored 81 and the Viewsonic PA503W scored 85.

More Expensive by $159

The Optoma ML550 is $159 more expensive than the Gigabyte BRIX, $7 more expensive than the Infocus IN112A and $107 more expensive than the Viewsonic PA503W.

Less Retailers

The Optoma ML550 is only stocked by 5 shops, whereas the Viewsonic PA503W is stocked by 9 stores. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this projector remaining in stock.
Older by Over Four Years

The Optoma ML550 is eight months older than the Gigabyte BRIX, four years older than the Infocus IN112A, three years older than the LG PH550 and four years older than the Viewsonic PA503W.

23 Less Awards

The Optoma ML550 has only received 4 awards, whereas the Gigabyte BRIX has received 27 awards.

Expert Review Rating is Moderately Worse

The Optoma ML550's average expert score is 83%, however the LG PH550's is 84% (based on 14 reviews).

User Review Rating is Much Worse

The Optoma ML550's average user score is 80%, however the Infocus IN112A's is 98% (based on 9 reviews), the LG PH550's is 90% (based on 151 reviews) and the Viewsonic PA503W's is 96% (based on 10 reviews).

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Projectorcentral.com and PC Mag both gave the Optoma ML550 a lower review score. More ...

Projectorcentral.com: Optoma ML550 = 81% vs LG PH550 = 90%

PC Mag: Optoma ML550 = 70% vs LG PH550 = 80%

The cheapest price that we could find for the ML550 in the US is $286.99 and in total we found 5 prices for it.
