Poor Product Quality

Two LG PW1500G reviewers who bought it considered that it was not good quality. Jarno wrote “Bad resolution issues wont occur ! 3d Quality ist watchable on the PH550g” in their review of the LG PW1500G. Jarno also wrote “Most downside in my case was the bad 3D quality with SKY 3D Side by Side Movies” in their review.

Easy to Use

One LG PW1500G reviewer wrote in their reviews that the LG PW1500G was easy to setup. Gergely Molnar mentioned on Amazon “The projector has great picture and easy to setup” in their review of the LG PW1500G.


Poor 3D Picture Quality

Four people who reviewed it considered that it did not have a good 3D picture quality. Jarno wrote in April last year “Al lot of Tearing (Horizontal Line Running from Top to Bottom, every few seconds) In one Case (RIP Department) there was such a very bad 3D Resolution”.

Good Sound Quality

One LG PW1500G owner who reviewed the LG PW1500G reckoned that it had good sound quality. Gergely Molnar mentioned “The bluetooth sound out is a plus” in their review of this projector.

Audio

Acceptable Noise Level

Two people who reviewed the product reckoned that it was quiet. In April last year Jarno said in their LG PW1500G review on Amazon “The PH550g is more silent, ok the PW1500g is of course brighter”. Jarno also mentioned “Its relative big for an minibeam, its relative silent” in their review.


Energy

Running Costs Are OK

The PW1500G is typical compared to the other 8 100000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that came out more than a year ago that we have analysed for 1 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the PW1500G is £36.

Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PW1500G has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 100000:1 contrast ratio multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at including because of its better review score, the LG PH550G.

Performance

Very Loud Noise Level

Comparable spec projectors that were released more than a year ago have noise levels of between 25dB and 34dB. At 34 decibels, the LG PW1500G has a very loud noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out around the same time as this projector.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Philips HDP1590TV (25dB and higher rated), the Acer K650i (£899.99) (29dB and higher rated), or the LG PH550G (30dB and higher rated).
