We just received our projector a couple of weeks ago. We are serving an LDS Mission in Samoa and needed a small projector for our training. This projector is amazing. We can take it, a terabyte harddrive with our training and run it on the battery with a bluetooth speaker. Amazing how light weight and the power it gives us to speak about our assignments. When others have seen it, they have wanted one also. This projector connects to anything we can imagine. The lumens could be stronger but 550 is a good quality for most small presentations. We are impressed.
I was looking at this one as an alternative to older LG PW800. This one has Bluetooth and a battery what is really great when you need portability. I was a bit concerned that PH550 is only 550 lumens compared to 800 lumens in PW800 model but in side by side comparison it was almost no difference. Both work really well in darkness, work OK in dim light, and not OK in daylight. Both models are very small and compact with nice design. Both models have comfortable level of fan noise.
Now about differences. PH550 has Bluetooth. Worked seamless and great with my JBL speakers. No wires. Battery. Brightness goes down when you switch to battery but in dark room it still looks great. You can just grab it along with usb memory stick and you have portable solution for camping or take it to the hotel when traveling so you always have your big screen tv with you. Really cool.
But. There is only one cons when comparing it to PW800. The picture quality. They both are 720p...
Areas rated from 1 to 5
TV Turner = 5 ( got up to 75 channels) 3D capability = 5, (used with dlp link glasses, there was no ghosting, blur, or eye strain) Built = 4.5
Image Quality = 4.0 (based on using with a projector screen) Image Quality during Daylight = 3.0 ( to accommodate daylight, I project to a projector screen simulating a 55 inch or lower image)
Other notes: I may never go back to a TV. The projector is so much more versatile. Plus the image does not wash out when looking from the side or angle. In addition the blacks are uniform, you won't have that annoying light bleed associated with lcd tv. There is no rainbow affect. Despite it only being 720p, I see no grid line affect, unless I was an inch away from the screen.
I also want to mention this projector has it's own movie player/software built in, which plays movies from the usb drive. Most of the files were in MP4...
