LG Has Good Reviews for Its Projectors

Data projectors built by LG generally have good ratings compared to other brands. 100% of those that bought a LG projector would recommend the product that they bought to other buyers.


Design

Easy to Use

One person who reviewed it thought it was easy to setup. Last year Gergely Molnar mentioned “The projector has great picture and easy to setup” and rated it 8 stars.


Good Sound Quality

One person who reviewed this projector considered that it had good sound quality. In April last year Gergely Molnar wrote in their review of this projector “The bluetooth sound out is a plus”.


Other

Released Over Two Years Ago

This projector was released in March 2015.


Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The LG PW800G has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Acer H7531D, the Optoma GT760 (£449.66), or the Viewsonic PJD5350LS which all of have better reviews.

Video

Does Not Support Full HD

The LG PW800G does not support full HD, unlike most of the other projectors of a similar age and type to this data projector.

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Sony VPL-HW50ES/W, the Panasonic PTAE7000U, or the Epson Pro G6770WU are also worth considering.

Projector

Very Dim Projector Brightness

At only 800 ANSI lumens, the LG PW800G has a quite dim projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago. Multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago have projector brightnesses of between 300 ANSI lumens and 9,200 ANSI lumens.

If this projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might want to look at the X313 (3,000 ANSI lumens and higher rated), the W311 (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated), or the HD421X (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated) all from Optoma.

Has a Zoom Capability

The LG PW800G has a zoom capability, which is unusual. Most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years do not have a zoom capability.

Lamps

Very Long Service Life of Lamp

At 30,000 hours, the LG PW800G has a quite long service life of lamp compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age. The average service life of lamp of projectors that were released more than two years ago is 7,700h, and the service life of lamps range from 1,500h to 30,000h.

Performance

Average Noise Level

The LG PW800G has a fairly average noise level (31 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors that came out around the same time as this projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 31dB noise level projectors currently available including because of their better review scores, the Benq W700+, or the Optoma H111.
