Introducing The New LG Hecto Laser TV - True Review 2014

10 Reasons For

Good Expert Reviews

Two experts from sites including gadgetguy.com.au and hifitest.de have rated this LG data projector on average 85 out of 100.

LG Data Projectors Have Good Reviews

Projectors produced by LG have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all projectors (not just projectors) and found that LG also has good ratings across its entire range.

Supports Full HD Projection

The LG HECTO supports Full HD projection, unlike most of the other projectors that have been available for more than two years which do not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other projectors which support Full HD projection to this projector and we think because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+ ($5,907.74), and the Panasonic PT-RZ470 ($3,659.99) is also worth considering.

1080p (1920x1080) Native Projector Resolution

This projector has a native projector resolution of 1080p (1920x1080), which is the most frequently found native projector resolution on projectors that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Three HDMI Ports

The LG HECTO is a three HDMI port projector. Most of the other data projectors of this age and spec have between one and three HDMI ports.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

When compared to other data projectors of this age and type that we have assessed, the LG HECTO's service life of lamp in economic mode of 25,000 hours is one of the longest. Projectors that have been available for around the same time as the HECTO have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp in economic mode is 6,900h.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of similar spec data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HECTO is 7,900h. At 20,000 hours, the LG HECTO has a quite long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

This multimedia projector has a 100 - 240V AC input voltage, which is typical of many multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of multimedia projectors of this spec and age is 32dB. With a noise level of only 25 decibels, the LG HECTO has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other projectors that are a similar age to the HECTO.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

The quietest noise level in economy mode of projectors that have been available for a similar time to the HECTO is 20dB, the loudest is 40dB, and the average noise level in economy mode is 29dB. With a noise level in economy mode of only 20 decibels, the LG HECTO's noise level in economy mode is one of the quietest amongst data projectors that are a similar age to the HECTO.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The LG HECTO does not support 3D image projection, unlike most of the other data projectors of a similar age and spec to the HECTO which support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support 3D image projection including the Benq W7000+ ($5,907.74), the Panasonic PT-RZ470 ($3,659.99), or the Optoma W311 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the HECTO, the LG HECTO does not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The LG HECTO does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

It is worth also looking at alternative projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq GP20.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Only Fixed Zoom Ratio

This projector supports a Fixed zoom ratio, which is the most frequently supported zoom ratio on multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Projectors that came out more than two years ago have weights of between 2.7g and 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg. At 14 kilograms, the LG HECTO is fairly heavy compared to most of the other projectors that have been around for around the same time as the HECTO.

2 Other reasons to consider the LG HECTO

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when this data projector was released.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,000 ANSI lumens, the LG HECTO has a fairly standard projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness projectors currently available including because of it's better review score, the Benq W7000+ ($5,907.74), or the Acer H9500BD.

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