10 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The PA72G is one of the most economic to run projectors of a similar type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the PA72G will cost only £46 over 1 year to run.

LG Has Good Projector Reviews

Projectors produced by LG have an average rating of 82%, which is in the top 39% of all data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Easy to Use

One person said in their reviews that it was easy to use. D90man wrote on Amazon three years ago “My priority being a sharp bright image with plenty ofimage control.”.

Supports 3D

Like most of the other projectors of this type and age, the LG PA72G supports 3D.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG PA72G has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PA72G.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native Resolution

The highest resolution of the LG PA72G is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than the most frequently found projector native resolution of XGA (1024x768). Across all projectors of this type and age the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp

The shortest service life of lamp of projectors of this age and type is 2,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp is 4,700h. With a service life of lamp of 30,000 hours, the LG PA72G's service life of lamp is one of the longest amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Two Number of Built-In Speakerss

The LG PA72G has more number of built-in speakerss than most of the multimedia projectors of this type and age. This multimedia projector is a two number of built-in speakers projector compared to most of the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have one number of built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Light

The lightest multimedia projector of a similar spec and age to the PA72G is 1.3kg heavy, the heaviest is 27kg, and the average weight is 6.5kg. When compared to other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched around the same time as the PA72G, the LG PA72G's weight of only 1.4 kilograms is one of the lightest.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level (economic Mode)

At only 26 decibels, the LG PA72G has a very quiet noise level (economic mode) compared to most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PA72G. The quietest noise level (economic mode) of multimedia projectors that have been available for around the same time as the PA72G is 26dB, the loudest is 35dB, and the average noise level (economic mode) is 31dB.

6 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One LG PA72G reviewer thought the product was not cheap. Three years ago D90man wrote on Amazon “A little more expensive than similar 720p machines by Acer”.

Does Not Support Full HD

Most projectors of a similar spec and age to the PA72G do not support full HD. The LG PA72G is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We compared all the other data projectors which also support full HD to this multimedia projector and we think the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Most 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the PA72G do not support wi-Fi. The LG PA72G is no exception to this as it too does not support wi-Fi.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Across all the projectors that came out more than two years ago the projector brightnesss range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens. The projector brightness of the LG PA72G of only 700 ANSI lumens is one of the dimmest amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to consider the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens), or the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price] (2,000 ANSI lumens) both from Epson which also has a higher rating.

Only One VGA (D-Sub) Ports Quantity

Most projectors of a similar age and spec to the PA72G have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports quantitys, including the LG PA72G which has one VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the LG PA72G

Released Over Four Years Ago

LG released the PA72G over four years ago.
