10 Reasons For

Easy to Use

One LG PA72G owner who reviewed this projector reckoned that it was easy to use. D90man mentioned two years ago “My priority being a sharp bright image with plenty ofimage control.” in their LG PA72G review.

LG Has Good Multimedia Projector Reviews

Projectors from LG have an average rating of 82%, which is in the top 43% of all data projector manufacturers that we have analysed.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The LG PA72G supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable age and spec to the PA72G also support 3D image projection.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price].

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG PA72G has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other data projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this multimedia projector to all the other projectors with a built-in speaker and we think because of it's better review score, the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[plb_2254510_price] is also worth considering.

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The highest resolution of the LG PA72G is WXGA (1280x800). That's 30% more resolution than a XGA (1024x768) projector, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the worst resolution is SVGA (800x600) and the best is WUXGA (1920x1200).

Chart Edit

Very Long Lamp Service Life

The average lamp service life of projectors of this spec and age is 4,700h, and the lamp service lives range from 2,000h to 30,000h. When compared to other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the PA72G that we have assessed, the lamp service life of the LG PA72G of 30,000 hours is one of the longest.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

Most of the other similar spec projectors that have been around for around the same time as the PA72G only have one built-in speaker, however the LG PA72G has two built-in speakers.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for more than two years the weights range from 1.3kg to 27kg. With a weight of only 1.4 kilograms, the LG PA72G is very light compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the multimedia projectors of this spec and age the widths range from 230mm to 750mm, and the average width is 350mm. With a width of only 230 millimeters, the LG PA72G's width is one of the narrowest amongst 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level in Economy Mode

With a noise level in economy mode of only 26 decibels, the LG PA72G has one of the quietest noise levels in economy mode amongst projectors of this age. Multimedia projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the PA72G have noise levels in economy mode of between 26dB and 35dB.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most comparable spec data projectors that were launched around the same time as the PA72G do not support Full HD projection. The LG PA72G is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a Full HD projection and we think the PowerLite Home Cinema 2030[pl_2254510_price], or the EH-TW5200[pl_1732117_price] both from Epson or the Viewsonic PJD7820HD[plb_1536139_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Like most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a similar age to the PA72G, the LG PA72G does not support WiFi connectivity.

Chart Edit

Quite Dim Projector Brightness

The average projector brightness of 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that came out more than two years ago is 4,200 ANSI lumens, and the projector brightness range from 700 ANSI lumens to 11,000 ANSI lumens. The LG PA72G has a very dim projector brightness (only 700 ANSI lumens) compared to most of the other 15000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were released more than two years ago.

If this LG projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also 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) Port

Most projectors that came out around the same time as the PA72G have between one and two VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the LG PA72G which has one VGA (D-Sub) port.

Chart Edit

Very Low Number of Colours

The LG PA72G has a quite low number of colours (only 16.7 million) compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the PA72G. Data projectors of a similar spec and age to the PA72G have numbers of colours of between 1M and 1,100M, and the average number of colours is 850M.

2 Other reasons to consider the LG PA72G

Released Over Four Years Ago

This 15000:1 contrast ratio projector has been on the market for over four years.

Average Noise Level

The LG PA72G has a relatively standard noise level (34 decibels) compared to most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a similar time to the PA72G.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the PJD5533W[pl_1500188_price] (33dB), the PJD8633[pl_1597774_price] (34dB), or the PRO8600[pl_1596542_price] (34dB) all from Viewsonic.
