16 Reasons For

Good Picture Quality

Two Philips HDP1550 reviewers who reviewed it thought it had good picture quality.

Good Product Quality

A few customers who purchased it concluded that it was good quality. Last year Pompompom wrote “The picture quality is ok if you sit far enough, mind you” in their review of the Philips HDP1550. Roop mentioned in the same month “As they say about 40 inches away from the wall the picture quality is good”.

Robust

One Philips HDP1550 reviewer who reviewed the Philips HDP1550 concluded that it was well made. Pompompom wrote “Fantastic engineering ideas and poor execution (unless I've been really unlucky”.

Reasonably Priced

One Philips HDP1550 reviewer who reviewed the product concluded that it was good value for money. Roop wrote “Value for money?” in their review.

Good Sound Quality

One Philips HDP1550 owner mentioned in their reviews that the product had good sound quality. Pompompom said “A small, portable box which can replace your big black TV, avoids wires all across the room and has sound? Count me in! I bought it” in their review of the Philips HDP1550.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Philips HDP1550 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar age and spec to the HDP1550 also support 3D image projection.

There are a number of other projectors which support 3D image projection currently available that you might want to consider including the M333XS[pl_3113388_price], or the M323W[pl_3058192_price] both from NEC or the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The HDP1550 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 10000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the HDP1550.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this multimedia projector and we think the NEC M333XS[plb_3113388_price], the Hitachi CP -AX2505[plb_3406374_price], and the Benq MH741[plb_3116082_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

In addition, this data projector support graphics resolutions of 800 x 600 (SVGA) and 1024 x 768 (XGA) and 1280 x 768 (WXGA).
