2 Other reasons to consider the LG HECTO

Released Over Three Years Ago

This LG projector has been on the market for over three years.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens, the LG HECTO has a pretty typical projector brightness compared to most of the other data projectors of this age and type.

We compared all the other 2,000 ANSI lumens brightness multimedia projectors to this multimedia projector and we think the Benq W7000+[plb_1403580_price], and the Acer H9500BD[plb_1475545_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a brighter projector brightness then you might want to look at the Epson EH-TW5910[plb_1717178_price] (2,100 ANSI lumens), or the Optoma HD50[plb_2578841_price] (2,200 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
