11 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The BD430 is in the cheapest 12% of all 53 comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the BD430 will cost only £97 over 1 year to run.

Good Brand

We checked the reviews from experts and users of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each data projector manufacturer. On average projectors from LG have good reviews from owners and experts.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG BD430 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the BD430 also have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1060 (£499.96), or the Hitachi CP-AX2503.

1600 X 1200 (UXGA) Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution supported by the LG BD430 is 1600 x 1200 (UXGA). That's over six times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA) (which is also supported by this LG projector). This LG multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA) and 1360 x 768 (WXGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA). Across all projectors of a comparable age and spec to the BD430 the worst resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA) and the best is 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA).

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Multimedia projectors of a comparable type and age to the BD430 have noise levels of between 29dB and 48dB, and the average noise level is 37dB. With a noise level of only 34 decibels, the LG BD430 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The LG BD430 is a two built-in speaker multimedia projector. Most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the BD430 only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

The LG BD430 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the multimedia projectors of this age and type. This data projector is a three VGA (D-Sub) port projector compared to most of the comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the BD430 which only have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

Across all the comparable spec data projectors that are a similar age to the BD430 the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 5,000h, and the average lamp service life is 3,400h. With a lamp service life of 4,000 hours, the LG BD430 has one of the longer lamp service lives amongst projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The average width of 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the BD430 is 420mm. With a width of only 327 millimeters, the LG BD430 is one of the narrower projectors of this type and age amongst 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Light

5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the BD430 have weights of between 2.6kg and 27kg. At only 2.9 kilograms, the LG BD430 is quite light compared to most of the other data projectors that were released more than two years ago.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the BD430 do not support Full HD projection. The LG BD430 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which also support Full HD projection to this projector and we think the Benq W1060 (£499.96), or the Hitachi CP-AX2503 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the BD430, the LG BD430 does not support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Z8455WUNL, or the PowerLite W16 both from Epson.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the BD430 do not support WiFi connectivity. The LG BD430 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of data projectors of this spec and age is 2,000 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 10,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,800 ANSI lumens. At only 2,700 ANSI lumens, the LG BD430 has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the Ricoh PJ X3340 (£325.30) (3,000 ANSI lumens).
