Introducing The New LG Hecto Laser TV - True Review 2014

10 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Good

Two experts from sites including gadgetguy.com.au and hifitest.de have rated this data projector on average 85%.

Good Brand

On average LG projectors have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all data projectors produced by LG.

Supports Full HD Projection

The LG HECTO supports Full HD projection, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the HECTO do not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors which support Full HD projection and we think the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], and the Panasonic PT-RZ470[plb_1844617_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
