|The VT540 vs. the LT150. If you can stretch your budget another $1,000 or so you can get the LT150, the next "highly recommended" product in line with respect to price. The LT150 is rated a bit less in ANSI lumens at 800, but that is not a significant difference. Particularly since the LT150 delivers a contrast of 800:1, or double that of the VT540.|
The LT150 has a fixed lens vs the VT540's zoom. But this is not an issue in most home theaters once you ceiling mount the projector. You just need to be more precise in mounting the LT150. The LT150 is the same XGA resolution, but due to its DLP technology, pixels are entirely invisible. NEC's VORTEX image enhancement system is on board the LT150 as well. Both have the same variety of controls related to red, green, and blue channels, gamma, and color temperature. Overall, if you can take the step up to the LT150 financially, you will be rewarded with a notably superior image in terms of contrast and pixel-free imagery.
