4 Reasons For

Has a Built-In Speaker

Most of the other 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were launched more than two years ago have a built-in speaker, including the Sharp PG-LX3000.

It is worth also looking at different data projectors with a built-in speaker including a higher scoring product such as the AAXA Technologies P300 Pico, the NEC NP-PA550, or the Epson EB-455Wi.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the PG-LX3000 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by similar spec projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the PG-LX3000. In addition, this projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 1366 х 768 and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors of a similar age and spec to the PG-LX3000 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth also looking at include the U310W (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1280 x 800 (WXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), the U250X (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+ and higher rated), 640 x 480 (VGA and higher rated), 800 x 600 (SVGA and higher rated) and higher rated), or the U300X (1024 x 768 (XGA and higher rated), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA and higher rated), 1400 x 1050 and higher rated) all from NEC.

Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

The service life of lamp in economic mode of comparable spec projectors that are more than two years old range from 2,500h to 6,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 4,100h. At 5,000 hours, the PG-LX3000 has a quite long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PG-LX3000.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The Sharp PG-LX3000 is fairly light (only 2,500 grams) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PG-LX3000. Comparable spec projectors that came out around the same time as the PG-LX3000 have weights of between 360g and 19,000g.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most of the projectors of this age and type, including the Sharp PG-LX3000, do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the NP-PA550, or the NP-PA500 both from NEC or the Sharp PG-LW3000 are also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec, the Sharp PG-LX3000 does not support 3D image projection.

We compared all the other projectors with a 3D image projection to this projector and we think the EW330U, or the XD590 both from Mitsubishi Electric or the Sharp PG-LW3000 are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Sharp PG-LX3000 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec data projectors that are a comparable age to the PG-LX3000 also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth considering alternative projectors with a WiFi connectivity including the Epson EB-455Wi, the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro, or the Casio XJ-A256.

Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the PG-LX3000 is 19dB, the loudest is 40dB, and the average noise level is 36dB. With a noise level of 39 decibels, the PG-LX3000 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PG-LX3000.

There are a number of other 39dB noise level projectors that you might want to consider including a better rated projector such as the PG-LW3000, or the PG-LX3500 both from Sharp or the Epson PowerLite 935W.

Very Small Matrix Size

At only 0.55 inches, the PG-LX3000 has a quite small matrix size compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the PG-LX3000. The matrix sizes of projectors of a comparable age and type to the PG-LX3000 range from 0.45" to 55", and the average matrix size is 2.5".

4 Other reasons to consider the Sharp PG-LX3000

Average Running Costs

The PG-LX3000 is typical compared to the other 50 12000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that are more than two years old that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PG-LX3000 is £175.

Over Two Years Old

This multimedia projector has been on the market for over two years.

Average Projector Brightness

At 3,000 ANSI lumens, the PG-LX3000 has a relatively standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PG-LX3000.

There are a number of different 3000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors which you might want to also look at including a higher Kagoo Rating™ multimedia projector such as the Epson EB-465i, the Canon LV-7392, or the NEC U300X.

Projectors with a brighter projector brightness that might be worth considering include the Sharp PG-LW3500 (3500 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the NEC NP-PA600X (6000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the Panasonic PT-DX810 (8200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).

XGA (1024x768) Native Projector Resolution

This multimedia projector has a native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768), which is typical of many similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to it.

It is worth also looking at other projectors that have a resolution of XGA (1024x768) including a higher scoring product such as the PT-DX610, or the PT-VX400 both from Panasonic or the Epson EB-465i.

Multimedia projectors with a higher resolution that might be worth considering include the Panasonic PT-DW640 (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), the Hitachi CPWX12WN (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated), or the Epson EB-455Wi (WXGA (1280x800 and higher rated) and higher rated).
