Very Big Lamp Power

When compared to other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PHWU-81B that we have checked, the PHWU-81B's lamp power of 350 Watts is one of the biggest. The average lamp power of projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PHWU-81B is 320W, and the lamp power range from 280W to 350W.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

When compared to other 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for more than a year that we have checked the service life of lamp in economic mode of, the PHWU-81B's service life of lamp in economic mode of 4,000 hours is one of the longest. The average service life of lamp in economic mode of 2800:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PHWU-81B is 3,500h.

10 Reasons Against

Only 100V AC Input Voltage

This projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many comparable spec data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to it.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The Barco PHWU-81B does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to the PHWU-81B also do not support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Optoma HD151X (£625.34) which also has a higher rating.

The PHWU-81B does not have a built-in speaker, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for more than a year also do not have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the Optoma HD151X (£625.34) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
