Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The LG PF80 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that are a similar age to the PF80 do support 3D image projection.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Epson EH-TW6100 (£506.00) or the Epson EH-TW5910 (£899.00), or the Optoma HD36 (£799.99).

Chart Edit

The LG PF80 has one of the dimmer projector brightness (only 1,000 ANSI lumen) amongst projectors of this age.

If you are looking for a brighter projector brightness then you might also want to consider the HD50 (£935.00) (2,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the HD36 (£799.99) (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Optoma.
