10 Reasons For

Very Low Running Costs

The PW1500G is in the cheapest 4% of all 80 multimedia projectors that were released in the last year that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the PW1500G will cost only £36 over 1 year to run.

Acceptable Noise Level

A number of LG PW1500G reviewers who reviewed the product thought it was quiet. Jarno mentioned in their review of the LG PW1500G this month “Its relative big for an minibeam, its relative silent”. Jarno also mentioned “The PH550g is more silent, ok the PW1500g is of course brighter”.

Good Brand

Based on 114 expert and user reviews, LG has good ratings for its data projectors. LG also has good ratings specifically within its multimedia projectors range.

Easy to Use

One LG PW1500G reviewer reckoned that the product was easy to setup. Gergely Molnar wrote a few weeks ago “The projector has great picture and easy to setup” and scored the product 5 stars.

Good Sound Quality

One LG PW1500G reviewer said in their reviews that the LG PW1500G had good sound quality. This year Gergely Molnar scored the product 5 stars and said on Amazon “The bluetooth sound out is a plus”.

Good Product Quality

One LG PW1500G reviewer concluded that the product was good quality.

Supports 3D

The LG PW1500G supports 3D. Most of the other recently released multimedia projectors do not support 3D.

It may also be worth considering one of the other projectors which support 3D currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite Pro G6050W[plb_3745466_price], or the Optoma X344[plb_3907351_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The PW1500G has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PW1500G also have a built-in speaker(s).

Alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include the 3500LM[pl_3860696_price], or the PJD7525W[pl_3753194_price] both from Viewsonic or the Vivitek DU3341[plb_3793980_price] which has better reviews.

5 Reasons Against

Poor 3D Picture Quality

A few LG PW1500G reviewers thought the product did not have a good 3D picture quality. A few weeks ago Jarno said “Most downside in my case was the bad 3D quality with SKY 3D Side by Side Movies” in their review of the LG PW1500G. Jarno also wrote “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”.

Does Not Support Full HD

The LG PW1500G does not support full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other recently released projectors also do not support full HD.

Other multimedia projectors which also support full HD that you might want to consider include the Viewsonic 3500LM[plb_3860696_price], the Optoma HD26LV[plb_3710133_price], or the Vivitek DU3341[plb_3793980_price].

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PW1500G, the LG PW1500G does not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi including the Home Cinema 2045[pl_3844211_price], or the EH-TW6700W[pl_3812542_price] both from Epson or the Panasonic PT-JW130[plb_3717876_price] which is also higher rated.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the multimedia projectors that were launched in the last 12 months the projector brightnesss range from 100 ANSI lumens to 8,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,800 ANSI lumens. The PW1500G has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 1,500 ANSI lumen) amongst multimedia projectors of this age.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the 5J.JDH37.022[pl_3784874_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens), or the W1090[pl_3888748_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens) both from Benq or the Sony VPL-HW45ES[plb_3723625_price] (1,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
