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. But that would be missing the point. Think of it instead as a big-screen 720p HDTV that uses a projector as ...
Compact
Built-in TV tuner
Supports Miracast and WiDi for easy wireless mirroring of cell-phone, tablet, and PC screens
Very small light weight
HD resolution of 720p (higher than many pico pocket projectors)
Long lasting LED light source
Builtin media player with good support for displaying photos, videos, playing audio files
Directly display MS Office documents
3D, ready
Stellar picture quality
Small and light, weight
No zoom
Low brightness limits useful image size, particularly in rooms with ambient light
No 3D support for video sources
Showed rainbow artifacts in testing
Measured lumens well short of manufacturer claimed value
No network support
No mode offered with really low input display lag, as would be desired by serious gamers (really hard core gamers want 33ms or less)
Small, low powered, builtin speakers offer
Screen sharing on Android only
Manual focus
Basically a portable HDTV that uses a projector for its display, the LG Compact Pebble Design Smart Minibeam Projector PW800 offers the usual HDMI and VGA ports, plus easy wireless connectivity to mobile devices......

LG is on a roll this year with a wide lineup of LED based DLP projectors for the portable and home theater market. With the recent reviews of the PF1500 and the PH300 projectors, we now get to experience the PW800 projector. Rated to up to 800 lumens...
The LG PW800 isn't going to change the course of the pocket projector. It has a lot of competition from other models which perform similarly, are similarly priced, and are of similar size. But, it is an ultra-mobile projector that can be used in a va...

Key Features

Noise Level

The noise level of the projector is the amount of noise that the projector makes (caused by the cooling fan inside the projector) when it is running.

A lower noise level means that the projector will be quieter when it is running. This means that you will be able to appreciate the quieter parts of films better without the background noise of the projector running. Most projectors have a noise level between 30 and 40Db, which rates them as 'very quiet' by Industial Noise Control - on par with low bird calls, or a quiet rural area. You can find more information here: http://www.industrialnoisecontrol.com/comparative-noise-examples.htm.

Projector Brightness

This is how bright the bulb in the projector is, measured in 'lumens'.

A brighter bulb means that the projector will be seen clearer, and can project to surfaces father away without appearing too dark.

Service Life Of Lamp

This indicates how long the lamp in the projector will last before it needs to be replaced, measured in hours.

A longer life lamp means you'll need to replace it far less frequently, saving you money.
