11 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The PA72G has an average running cost of only £46 over 1 year based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the cheapest to run data projectors of this age and spec.

Easy to Use

One LG PA72G owner who reviewed this projector reckoned that it was easy to use. D90man mentioned two years ago “My priority being a sharp bright image with plenty ofimage control.” in their LG PA72G review.

LG Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

On average projectors from LG are rated 82 out of 100, which is in the top 43% of all data projector brands that we have looked at.

Supports 3D Image Projection

Like most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PA72G, the LG PA72G supports 3D image projection.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG PA72G has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other comparable spec projectors that were released around the same time as the PA72G.

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[plb_2254510_price].

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The LG PA72G has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found native projector resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all data projectors of this age and spec the resolution ranges from SVGA (800x600) (worst) to WUXGA (1920x1200) (best).

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

Across all the multimedia projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PA72G the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 30,000h. The LG PA72G has one of the longest lamp service lives (30,000 hours) amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out around the same time as the PA72G only have one built-in speaker, however the LG PA72G has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Light

With a weight of only 1.4 kilograms, the LG PA72G is very light compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PA72G. Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released around the same time as the PA72G the weights range from 1.3kg to 27kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The widths of comparable spec data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PA72G range from 230mm to 750mm. At only 230 millimeters, the LG PA72G is very narrow compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the PA72G.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

Comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PA72G have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 35dB. The noise level in economy mode of the LG PA72G of only 26 decibels is one of the quietest amongst multimedia projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PA72G.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One person mentioned that it was not cheap. D90man mentioned “A little more expensive than similar 720p machines by Acer” but they still scored the LG PA72G very highly.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other multimedia projectors that are a comparable age to the PA72G, the LG PA72G does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other data projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[plb_2254510_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The LG PA72G does not support WiFi connectivity, although keep in mind that most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable age and type to the PA72G also do not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of only 700 ANSI lumens, the LG PA72G has a very dim projector brightness compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PA72G. The average projector brightness of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens.

If you would prefer a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to look at the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson.

Projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PA72G have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 840M.

2 Other reasons to consider the LG PA72G

Released Over Four Years Ago

This LG projector was released over four years ago.

Average Noise Level

The LG PA72G has a pretty standard noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable age and type to the PA72G.

If you would consider a projector with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the PJD5533W[pl_1500188_price] (33dB), the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] (34dB), or the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price] (34dB) all from Viewsonic.
