10 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

On average, based on two expert reviews from sites including gadgetguy.com.au and hifitest.de the average expert rating of this multimedia projector is 85 out of 100.

LG Has Good Reviews for Its Multimedia Projectors

We calculated the average reviews for all LG projectors and also specifically for LG multimedia projectors and found that in both cases LG had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Full HD

The LG HECTO supports full HD, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors of this age and type do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors which support full HD 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.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

Across all the similar spec projectors that have been available for more than two years the service life of lamp (economic mode)s range from 2,000h to 30,000h. When compared to other projectors of a comparable type and age to the HECTO that we have checked, the LG HECTO's service life of lamp (economic mode) of 25,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

Across all the projectors of this type and age the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 7,700h. At 20,000 hours, the LG HECTO has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the HECTO.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is the most commonly found AC input voltage on multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 25 decibels, the LG HECTO has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar type and age to the HECTO. The noise levels of data projectors that were released around the same time as the HECTO range from 20dB to 47dB, and the average noise level is 32dB.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The LG HECTO does not support 3D. Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been around for more than two years do support 3D.

There are a number of alternative projectors which also support 3D which you might want to look at including the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030ub[plb_2301495_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker(s)

Most of the other multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years have a built-in speaker(s), however the LG HECTO does not have a built-in speaker(s).

We think you might also be interested in other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the Optoma HD25-LV[plb_1883129_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The LG HECTO does not support wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other projectors of this age and type also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq GP20[plb_2231335_price] is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The LG HECTO has one of the dimmer projector brightnesss (only 2,000 ANSI lumens) amongst multimedia projectors of this age. Across all the multimedia projectors that are a similar age to the HECTO the projector brightnesss range from 300 ANSI lumens to 9,200 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 2,900 ANSI lumens.

There are a number of other 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors currently available that you might want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], or the Acer H9500BD[plb_1475545_price].

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might want to consider the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] (2,100 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
