3 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD

Most data projectors of a similar age and spec to the LV-7490 do not support full HD. The Canon LV-7490 is no exception to this as it too does not support full HD.

We think you might also be interested in other multimedia projectors which also support full HD including the AAXA Technologies LED Android Pico Projector[plb_3156294_price], the Hitachi CP-DH300[plb_2149864_price], or the Ricoh PJ X6180N[plb_3011085_price].

Does Not Support 3D

Most projectors of this age and spec do not support 3D. The LV-7490 is no exception to this as it too does not support 3D.

Other projectors which also support 3D that you might want to look at include the U300X[pl_1530119_price], the U260W[pl_1531484_price], or the U310W[pl_1531485_price] all from NEC which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The LV-7490 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other 2000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the LV-7490 also do not support wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a wi-Fi and we think the Epson PowerLite 1761W[plb_1735741_price], the AAXA Technologies M2 Micro[plb_1759924_price], or the Casio XJ-A256[plb_1787918_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
