4 Reasons For for Choosing the Viewsonic PA502S

Handheld Remote Control

The Viewsonic PA502S has a handheld remote control, and so do the Benq MS535A, the Infocus IN112XA and the LG PH550, however the Pyle Pro PRJG88 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 PA502S has received a Kagoo Score of 89, however the Benq MS535A scored 83, the Infocus IN112XA scored 80, the LG PH550 scored 87 and the Pyle Pro PRJG88 scored only 73.

4% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years

The Viewsonic PA502S is $2 cheaper to run than the Benq MS535A over five years. More ...

User Reviews Are a Bit Better

Based on 3 user reviews, the average review score of the Viewsonic PA502S is 100%, however the average rating of the Infocus IN112XA is 98% (based on 9 reviews), the average rating of the LG PH550 is 90% (based on 151 reviews) and the average rating of the Pyle Pro PRJG88 is 82% (based on 10 reviews).

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Viewsonic PA502S

Only 800 X 600 (SVGA) Resolution

The Viewsonic PA502S has a projector native resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA), and so are the Benq MS535A and the Infocus IN112XA, which is half as high resolution as the LG PH550 (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.

20% Louder Noise Level

The Viewsonic PA502S has a noise level of 32 (as do the Benq MS535A and the Infocus IN112XA), however the LG PH550 is a 24dB projector (8dB 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 PA502S has a high (22000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Benq MS535A and the Infocus IN112XA), 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.

98% Dimmer Projector Brightness

The Viewsonic PA502S has a projector brightness of 3, and so does the Infocus IN112XA. That's 100 ANSI lumens dimmer than the Benq MS535A (3,600 ANSI Lumens), 2,950 ANSI lumens brighter than the LG PH550 (550 ANSI Lumens) and 2,700 ANSI lumens brighter than the Pyle Pro PRJG88 (800 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.

10% Smaller Bulb Power

Viewsonic PA502S is only 190 lamp power. That's 20W smaller than the Benq MS535A (210W) and 5W smaller than the Infocus IN112XA (195W). 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 PA502S is a 5 lamp service life projector, and so do the Benq MS535A and the Infocus IN112XA. That's 25,000h shorter than the LG PH550 and the Pyle Pro PRJG88 (30,000h). 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.

Does Not Have a Built-in Speaker

The Viewsonic PA502S does not have a built-in speaker, however the Benq MS535A, the Infocus IN112XA, the LG PH550 and the Pyle Pro PRJG88 do. 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.

$108 More Expensive

The Viewsonic PA502S is more expensive than the Infocus IN112XA by $108 and more expensive than the LG PH550 by $43.

Less Retailers

Only 8 sellers sells the Viewsonic PA502S, whereas 11 stores sell the LG PH550. 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.
Over One Year Older

The Viewsonic PA502S is older than the Benq MS535A by 13 months and older than the Infocus IN112XA by one month.

Worse Brand

Viewsonic projectors have an average rating of only 90.8%, whereas Benq has an average rating of 92.5%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the PA502S in the US is $291.52 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Benq MS535A

9% Bigger Bulb Power

The Benq MS535A is a 210 lamp power projector. That's 15W bigger than the Infocus IN112XA (195W) and 20W bigger than the Viewsonic PA502S (190W). 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.

3D

The Benq MS535A supports 3D, and so does the LG PH550, whereas the Infocus IN112XA, the Pyle Pro PRJG88 and the Viewsonic PA502S 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 Benq MS535A has a built-in speaker (as do the Infocus IN112XA and the LG PH550), however the Pyle Pro PRJG88 and the Viewsonic PA502S do 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.

Ceiling Mountable

The Benq MS535A is a ceiling mountable projector (as is the Infocus IN112XA), however the LG PH550, the Pyle Pro PRJG88 and the Viewsonic PA502S 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 Benq MS535A has a handheld remote control, and so do the Infocus IN112XA, the LG PH550 and the Viewsonic PA502S, but the Pyle Pro PRJG88 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!

One Year Newer

The Benq MS535A was released 19 months ago, but the Infocus IN112XA was released three years ago, the LG PH550 was released four years ago, the Pyle Pro PRJG88 was released three years ago and the Viewsonic PA502S was released three years ago

Better Brand

Benq projectors have an average rating of 92.5%, however Infocus only has an average rating of 82.2%, LG only has an average rating of 82.2% and Viewsonic only has an average rating of 90.8%.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Benq MS535A

Lower Resolution

The Benq MS535A has a projector native resolution of 800 x 600 (SVGA), and so are the Infocus IN112XA and the Viewsonic PA502S, which is half as high resolution as the LG PH550 (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.

Louder Noise Level

The Benq MS535A has a noise level of 32 (as do the Infocus IN112XA and the Viewsonic PA502S), but the LG PH550 is a 24dB projector (8dB 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 (15000:1) Contrast Ratio

The Benq MS535A has a high (15000:1) contrast ratio (as are the Infocus IN112XA and the Viewsonic PA502S), however 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.

Significantly Shorter Service Life of Lamp

The Benq MS535A has a service life of lamp of 5, and so do the Infocus IN112XA and the Viewsonic PA502S. That's 25,000h shorter than the LG PH550 and the Pyle Pro PRJG88 (30,000h). 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 Benq MS535A has received a Kagoo Score of 83, but the LG PH550 scored 87 and the Viewsonic PA502S scored 89.

$115 More Expensive

The Benq MS535A is more expensive than the Infocus IN112XA by $115, more expensive than the LG PH550 by $50 and more expensive than the Viewsonic PA502S by $7.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 3 sellers sells the Benq MS535A, however 11 shops sell the LG PH550 and 8 shops sell the Viewsonic PA502S. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this projector remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
5% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The running costs of the Benq MS535A are $55 which is $2 more than the Viewsonic PA502S over five years. Show assumptions.

The cheapest price that we could find for the MS535A in the US is $299.00 and in total we found 3 prices for it.

More ...

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Pyle Pro PRJG88
