11 Reasons For

Nice Design

One customer who purchased the product thought it was good looking. Martin Smith mentioned on Amazon “Beautiful crisp images even in a well lit room” in his LG SA560 review and rated it 5 stars.

Good for Ceiling Mounting

One LG SA560 owner who reviewed it thought it was good for ceiling mounting. Jason Marks wrote on Amazon “Really can be so close to the wall it's great! Make sure you get a good wall or ceiling mount” in his review of this projector.

Good Brand

We calculated the average ratings for all LG projectors and also specifically for LG projectors and found that in both cases LG had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The LG SA560 has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that have been around for a similar time to the SA560 which do not have a built-in speaker.

There are a number of other projectors with a built-in speaker currently available which you might want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Benq W770ST ($500.00).

There are a number of other data projectors which also have a built-in speaker that you might also want to consider including the Optoma H100, or the Epson EB-1930 ($999.00).

Three Component Video in Ports

The LG SA560 has more component video in ports than most of the projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the SA560. This data projector is a three component video in port data projector compared to most of the comparable spec projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two component video in ports.

Chart Edit

Two Built-In Speakers

The LG SA560 is a two built-in speaker projector.

Chart Edit

Very Long Service Life of Lamp in Economic Mode

Comparable spec projectors that came out more than two years ago have service life of lamp in economic mode of between 2,000h and 30,000h. At 20,000 hours, the LG SA560 has a very long service life of lamp in economic mode compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the SA560.

Chart Edit

Three VGA (D-Sub) Ports

Most projectors of this spec and age have between 1 and 11 VGA (D-Sub) ports, including the LG SA560 which has three VGA (D-Sub) ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of multimedia projectors of a similar age and type to the SA560 is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h. With a lamp service life of 20,000 hours, the LG SA560 has a fairly long lamp service life compared to most of the other projectors of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Supports Two Video Formats

The number of supported video formats on the LG SA560 is more than most data projectors of a similar age and type to it. This data projector supports an AVI video format, which is the most frequently supported video format supported by projectors of a comparable spec and age to the SA560. The video format "DIVX" is also supported by this LG projector.

Chart Edit

100V AC Input Voltage

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

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D Image Projection

The LG SA560 does not support 3D image projection. Most of the other projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the SA560 do support 3D image projection.

We compared this data projector to all the other projectors with a 3D image projection and we think the Benq W770ST ($500.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Like most of the other comparable spec multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago, the LG SA560 does not support Full HD projection.

Other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection that you might also want to consider include the Epson EH-TW6100, or the Optoma EH200ST ($926.99).

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

Most projectors that have been around for a comparable time to the SA560 do not support WiFi connectivity. The LG SA560 is no exception to this as it too does not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support WiFi connectivity including the Benq GP20 which is also cheaper.

Heavy

The LG SA560 is quite heavy (11 kilograms) compared to most of the other projectors that came out more than two years ago. The weights of multimedia projectors of this type and age range from 2.7g to 26kg, and the average weight is 6.2kg.

5 Other reasons to consider the LG SA560

Released Over Three Years Ago

LG released the SA560 over three years ago.

1280 X 800 Graphics Resolution

The LG SA560 supports a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of the most common graphics resolution of 640 x 480 (VGA).

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Native Projector Resolution

The LG SA560 has a maximum resolution of WXGA (1280x800). That's 51% less resolution than a 1080p (1920x1080) data projector, which is the most common resolution.

Chart Edit

Average Noise Level

At 32 decibels, the LG SA560 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other multimedia projectors of a similar spec and age to the SA560.

Chart Edit

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,500 ANSI lumens, the LG SA560 has a pretty average projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors that have been on the market for a comparable time to the SA560.

We compared this projector to all the other 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness projectors and we think because of it's better review score, the W750, and the W770ST ($500.00) both from Benq is also worth considering.

If this LG multimedia projector projector brightness is not bright enough for you then you might also want to look at the Viewsonic PJD6350 ($421.99) (3,200 ANSI lumens and higher rated).
