10 Reasons For

LG Has Good Projector Reviews

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

Nice Design

One customer considered that it was good looking. Martin Smith gave the LG SA560 a score of 5 stars and he wrote in his review on Amazon “Beautiful crisp images even in a well lit room”.

Good for Ceiling Mounting

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

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

Like most of the other data projectors that are a comparable age to the SA560, the LG SA560 has a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this data projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the Optoma HD30 ($1,489.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three Component Video (YPbPr/YCbCr) Ins

The LG SA560 has more component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins than most of the data projectors that are a comparable age to the SA560. This data projector is a three component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) in projector compared to most of the projectors that were released more than two years ago which only have between one and two component video (YPbPr/YCbCr) ins.

Very Long Service Life of Lamp (economic Mode)

The shortest service life of lamp (economic mode) of data projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as the SA560 is 2,000h, the longest is 30,000h, and the average service life of lamp (economic mode) is 6,600h. With a service life of lamp (economic mode) of 20,000 hours, the LG SA560 has one of the longer service life of lamp (economic mode)s amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Service Life of Lamp

The average service life of lamp of data projectors that have been available for around the same time as the SA560 is 7,700h. The LG SA560 has one of the longer service life of lamps (20,000 hours) amongst data projectors of this age.

Chart Edit

Supports Two Video Formats Supporteds

The LG SA560 has a greater number of supported video formats than most projectors of this age and type. This multimedia projector supports an AVI video formats supported, which is the most frequently supported video formats supported supported by comparable spec multimedia projectors that were released more than two years ago. The video formats supported "DIVX" is also supported by this data projector.

Chart Edit

Quite High RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of 14 Watts, the LG SA560 has a fairly high RMS rated power compared to most of the other projectors of a similar spec and age to the SA560. Data projectors that were released more than two years ago have RMS rated powers of between 1W and 30W, and the average RMS rated power is 8.6W.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Support 3D

The LG SA560 does not support 3D, unlike most of the other projectors that have been around for more than two years.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a 3D and we think the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00), the Panasonic PT-RZ470 ($3,851.75), or the Optoma W311 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD

The LG SA560 does not support full HD. Most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age also do not support full HD.

We compared this data projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a full HD and we think the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00), or the Panasonic PT-RZ470 ($3,851.75) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

Like most of the other data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the SA560, the LG SA560 does not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support wi-Fi to this projector and we think the Benq GP20 is also worth considering.

Heavy

The weights of projectors of a comparable spec and age to the SA560 range from 2.2g to 26kg. With a weight of 11 kilograms, the LG SA560 is one of the heavier data projectors that have been available for a similar time to the SA560 amongst data projectors of this age.

5 Other reasons to consider the LG SA560

Released Over Four Years Ago

LG released the SA560 over four years ago.

1280 X 800 Supported Graphics Resolutions

The highest resolution supported by the LG SA560 is 1280 x 800. That's over three times the resolution of a 640 x 480 (VGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by data projectors that have been on the market for a similar time to the SA560.

Chart Edit

WXGA (1280x800) Projector Native 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

The LG SA560 has a relatively typical noise level (32 decibels) compared to most of the other projectors of a similar type and age to the SA560.

Other 32dB noise level multimedia projectors currently available which you might also want to look at include the Benq W7000+ ($1,995.00), or the Epson EH-TW5910 which has better reviews.

Average Projector Brightness

With a projector brightness of 2,500 ANSI lumens, the LG SA560 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other similar spec data projectors that have been available for more than two years.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness data projectors currently available including the W750, or the W770ST both from Benq which has better reviews.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the Optoma GT1080 ($674.00) (2,800 ANSI lumens) which is also higher rated.
