LED are Light Emitting Diodes that are used in projectors as a light/color source. Typically in lower end products they aren't very bright but they have good color reproduction Yes, 1500 is low if you plan on using this in a lit room, this is more oriented to darker rooms but you could possibly use it if you choose but don't expect to have a bright image. If you're using a projector in a bright room, I'd recommend laser based UST projectors or a bright bulb based projector. There are some LED projectors that are brighter but they are expensive starting off at around $2500 and up for 2000 lumens and brighter.
Hope this helped.
