Nice Design

Some customers agreed that this projector was a good design. Last year expert review site Pcmag.com said “The obvious way to think of the LG Compact Pebble Design Smart Minibeam Projector PW800 ($599.99) is as a projector with a built-in TV tuner.”.

Chart

Reasonably Priced

One customer who reviewed it thought it was good value for money. Projectorcentral.com mentioned “It has a lot of competition from other models which perform similarly, are similarly priced” in their review of the LG PW800.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG PW800 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the PW800.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker currently available including because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW5210[plb_3026694_price], the Viewsonic PJD6352[plb_2831189_price], or the Optoma X351[plb_2821583_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Supports 3D Image Projection

The LG PW800 supports 3D image projection, as do most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the PW800.

We compared all the other projectors which support 3D image projection to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson EH-TW5210[plb_3026694_price], the Viewsonic PJD6352[plb_2831189_price], and the Optoma X351[plb_2821583_price] is also worth considering.

Very Long Lamp Service Life

At 30,000 hours, the LG PW800 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than a year. The shortest lamp service life of projectors that are a similar age to the PW800 is 2,000h and the longest is 30,000h.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The LG PW800 is a two built-in speaker projector. Most of the other projectors that were released more than a year ago only have one built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than a year the weights range from 9.7g to 18kg, and the average weight is 4.4kg. The LG PW800 is fairly light (only 589.67 grams) compared to most of the other projectors that were released around the same time as the PW800.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The LG PW800 is one of the narrowest projectors that are a similar age to the PW800 (only 139.7 millimeters) amongst projectors of this age. Data projectors that came out around the same time as the PW800 have widths of between 130mm and 510mm.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

The LG PW800 does not support Full HD projection. Most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PW800 also do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support Full HD projection to this data projector and we think the NEC V332X[plb_3241591_price]; or the Epson EH-TW5210[plb_3026694_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most multimedia projectors that have been available for more than a year do not support WiFi connectivity. The LG PW800 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

Other data projectors which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at include the Vivitek Qumi Q6[plb_3137053_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Dim Projector Brightness

The dimmest projector brightness of projectors that were launched more than a year ago is 500 ANSI lumens, the brightest is 8,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 3,400 ANSI lumens. The LG PW800 has a quite dim projector brightness (only 800 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PW800.

If this projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to consider the EH-TW5300[pl_3024661_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens), or the EH-TW5210[pl_3026694_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Only One HDMI Port

Most projectors of a comparable age and type to the PW800 have one HDMI port, including the LG PW800 which has one HDMI port.

Chart Edit
