8 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The average running cost of the PG-LW3000 is only £80 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is in the cheapest 10% of all 50 projectors that are older than two years.

Supports Full HD Projection

Most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are a similar age to the PG-LW3000 do not support Full HD projection, however the Sharp PG-LW3000 supports Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors which support Full HD projection and we think a higher Kagoo Rating™ product such as the Optoma EX855, and the NEC NP-PA500 are also worth considering.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The PG-LW3000 supports 3D image projection, unlike most of the other multimedia projectors that were launched around the same time as the PG-LW3000 which do not support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support 3D image projection and we think a better rated product such as the Optoma EX855 are also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are more than two years old, including the PG-LW3000, have a built-in speaker.

We compared all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think a higher rated data projector such as the P300 Pico, and the LED Showtime 3D both from AAXA Technologies are also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The Sharp PG-LW3000 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PG-LW3000 the worst resolution is XGA (1024x768) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors that have a resolution of WXGA (1280x800) and we think a higher scoring product such as the AAXA Technologies LED Showtime 3D, and the Epson PowerLite 935W are also worth considering.

If the resolution of this data projector is too low for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic PT-DZ680 (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated),WSVGA (1024x576 and higher rated) and higher rated), the NEC NP-PA500 (XGA (1024x768 and higher rated),WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Sony VPL-FH36 (£3,249.00) (WUXGA (1920x1200 and higher rated) and higher rated).

Has One Preset Mode

The PG-LW3000 has a greater number of preset modes than most similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years. The most frequently found preset mode is Presentation, but this preset mode is not found on this Sharp data projector. The preset modes sRGB are also found on this projector.

Chart Edit

Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The shortest service life of lamp in economic mode of 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years is 2,500h and the longest is 6,000h. At 5,000 hours, the PG-LW3000 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PG-LW3000.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The lightest projector that is more than two years old is 360g weight and the heaviest is 19,000g. The Sharp PG-LW3000 is quite light (only 2,495 grams) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the PG-LW3000.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the PG-LW3000, the PG-LW3000 does not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other data projectors with a WiFi connectivity to this projector and we think the PowerLite 935W, or the EB-465i both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-VX400 are also worth considering.

Very Small RMS Rated Power

Across all the 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been available for more than two years the RMS rated power range from 1W to 16W. At only 2 Watts, the PG-LW3000 has a quite small RMS rated power compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that are older than two years.

Chart Edit

Only One USB 2.0 Port

Most 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PG-LW3000 have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, including the PG-LW3000 which has one USB 2.0 port.

Chart Edit

Loud Noise Level

The noise levels of projectors of this age and spec range from 19dB to 40dB, and the average noise level is 36dB. At 39 decibels, the Sharp PG-LW3000 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PG-LW3000.

Other 39dB noise level multimedia projectors that you might want to also look at include the Epson PowerLite 935W which have a better Kagoo Rating™.

Projectors with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the EB-1751 (£411.97) (40dB and higher rated), or the EB-1771 (£534.65) (40dB and higher rated) both from Epson.

2 Other reasons to consider the Sharp PG-LW3000

Over Two Years Old

It was over two years ago when Sharp released the PG-LW3000.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the Sharp PG-LW3000 has a fairly average projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PG-LW3000.

We think you might also be interested in different 3000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors including a higher rated multimedia projector such as the EB-1771 (£534.65), or the EB-465i both from Epson.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the Epson PowerLite 935W (3700 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
