Reasons For

Asus S1 Philips PPX3414
3 Reasons For
A Lot Brighter Projector Brightness
Asus S1 is 200 ANSI lumens brightness, but the Philips PPX3414 is only a 140 ANSI lumens brightness projector (60 ANSI lumens dimmer).

This is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Much Better User Reviews
The Asus S1 has an average user review score of 86% based on 32 reviews, but the Philips PPX3414 has an average rating of 73% (based on 8 reviews).
Better Brand
Asus projectors have an average rating of 79%, however Philips has an average rating of 69%.
3 Reasons For
4dB Quieter Noise Level
The Philips PPX3414 has a noise level of 28dB, whereas the Asus S1 is a 32dB projector (4dB louder).

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running.

Read more Read less | Edit
Card Reader Integrated
The Philips PPX3414 has a card reader integrated, however the Asus S1 does not have a card reader integrated.

This denotes whether the projector comes with an inbuilt reader for memory cards or not.

A memory card is a good way to easily load a film into the projector to watch, without having to hook it up to a computer first.

Read more Read less | Edit
Handheld Remote Control
The Philips PPX3414 has a handheld remote control, whereas the Asus S1 does not have a handheld remote control.

This indicates whether the projector comes with a handheld remote to control the device or not.

Handheld remotes are very helpful, since they mean you don't have to get up from your comfy seat to tweak the settings on the projector mid-film!
