The Sharp PG-LX2000 has the sort of clunky look that suggests there was little to no money spent on an industrial designer. However, it should appeal to anyone who cares less about how good the projector looks than how good the image on screen looks, especially if there's a tight budget involved.

As you might expect from its $555 street price, the PG-LX2000 focuses on basics. Built around a DLP chip, it offers a native 1024x768 resolution, a 2800 lumen rating (which we measured at 2557 lumens), and relatively few connectors. In a welcome touch, however, one of the connectors is for HDMI, which is often missing from budget models. Like most newer DLP projectors, it also offers 3D, which is a minor extra at best, since it's limited to computer input only, at 1024x768 and 800x600, and Sharp doesn't include any 3D glasses.

What makes the PG-LX2000 stand out is its image quality, particularly for data images, combined with fewer rainbow artifacts for both data and video than most DLP projectors. Factor in the 5.1-pound weight, the convenience of a 1.2x zoom, and a low running cost to complement the low initial price, and the PG-LX2000 can fit nicely for either permanent installation or portable use in classrooms or businesses where cost is a key consideration.
