It is worth considering other projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price], or the Casio XJ-A256[plb_1787918_price] which also has a higher rating.

We compared this projector to all the other 39dB noise level multimedia projectors and we think the Panasonic PT-DX810[plb_1923388_price], and the Epson PowerLite 935W[plb_1875522_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

3 Other reasons to consider the Sharp PG-LX3500

Released Over Four Years Ago

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,500 ANSI lumens, the PG-LX3500 has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 3,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Ricoh PJ WX5350N[plb_1582299_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the WUX-400[pl_2476895_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens), or the WUX400ST[pl_2983475_price] (4,000 ANSI lumens) both from Canon or the Epson PowerLite 935W[plb_1875522_price] (3,700 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
