Projector

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

Data projectors that have been available for around the same time as this projector have projector brightnesses of between 700 ANSI lumens and 11,000 ANSI lumens, and the average projector brightness is 4,100 ANSI lumens. The LG PA72G has a very dim projector brightness (only 700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to consider the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 (2,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the EH-TW5200 (£581.29) (2,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated) both from Epson.
