Good Product Quality

Supports 3D

The PW1500G supports 3D. Most of the other new similar spec multimedia projectors do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the PowerLite Pro G6050W[pl_3745466_price], or the Home Cinema 2045[pl_3844211_price] both from Epson.

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PW1500G has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PW1500G also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Vivitek DU3341[plb_3793980_price], the Optoma GT5500[plb_3451140_price], and the Viewsonic 5200LM[plb_3860695_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Poor 3D Picture Quality

A few LG PW1500G reviewers thought the product did not have a good 3D picture quality. A few weeks ago Jarno said “Most downside in my case was the bad 3D quality with SKY 3D Side by Side Movies” in their review of the LG PW1500G. Jarno also wrote “Al lot of Tearing (Horizontal Line Running from Top to Bottom, every few seconds) In one Case (RIP Department) there was such a very bad 3D Resolution”.

Does Not Support Full HD

The LG PW1500G does not support full HD. Most of the other data projectors that were released around the same time as the PW1500G also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the CH100[pl_3772760_price], or the 5J.JDH37.022[pl_3784874_price] both from Benq or the Vivitek DU3341[plb_3793980_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The PW1500G does not support wi-Fi, although it is worth noting that most of the other data projectors that were launched in the last 12 months also do not support wi-Fi.

Alternative projectors which also support wi-Fi that you might also want to look at include the Home Cinema 2045[pl_3844211_price], or the EH-TW6700W[pl_3812542_price] both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-JW130[plb_3717876_price] which also has a higher rating.

Multimedia projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth looking at include the Sony VPL-HW45ES[plb_3723625_price] (1,800 ANSI lumens), the Benq W1090[plb_3888748_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens), or the Vivitek H1188[plb_3704602_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
