11 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The BD450 is in the cheapest 6% of all 53 multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the BD450 will cost only £97 over 1 year to run.

LG Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

We checked the reviews from users and experts of hundreds of projectors to determine an average rating for each projector brand. On average projectors manufactured by LG have good ratings from experts and users.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG BD450 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W1060, or the Hitachi CP-AX2503.

That's over six times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the BD450. 640 x 480 (VGA) is also supported by this data projector. This multimedia projector also support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA) and 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The LG BD450 does not support Full HD projection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the BD450 also do not support Full HD projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative data projectors which also support Full HD projection including the Benq W1060, or the Hitachi CP-AX2503 which is also higher rated.

Most 5000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the BD450 do not support 3D image projection. The LG BD450 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D image projection.

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