10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

Multimedia projector expert review site IT Reviews.com scored this projector 60%. It seems that data projector experts are not that keen on this Sharp projector.

Inferior Technical Features

One person who reviewed the product considered that it did not have good features. Itreviews.com wrote on expert review site IT Reviews.com “It’s a little weak on convenience features, like providing every connector you could possibly want.” in their review of the Sharp PG-LX3500 and gave it a score of 60 out of 100.

Does Not Support Full HD

Like most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio data projectors that were released more than two years ago, the PG-LX3500 does not support full HD.

We compared all the other projectors which also support full HD to this projector and we think the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price], the Optoma EX855[plb_1715998_price], or the Panasonic PT-DZ680ULK[plb_2943449_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PG-LX3500, the Sharp PG-LX3500 does not support 3D.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the U300X[pl_1530119_price], the U260W[pl_1531484_price], or the U310W[pl_1531485_price] all from NEC is also worth considering.
