The LG PW800 ($599.99, £385.24, AU$738.45) is small, lightweight and attractive. But, unlike other projectors that compromise image quality for hardware aesthetics, the PW800 is an ideal combination of brains and beauty.
It is a great tool for the traveling businessperson or for the consumer who wants a small projector that can perform very well in a small room. It weighs an amazing 1.3 pounds (0.59 Kg) – much lighter than most projectors in this field, especially those that produce images as stunning.
If you are looking for something a bit bigger as a permanent solution for a conference room or lecture hall, the Epson EX7235 Pro might be right up your alley. The EX7235 Pro weighs 5.29 pounds (2.4 Kg) and is a good device for heavy-duty use, whereas the PW800 is built for smaller gatherings at various locations.
A cheaper comparable option is the Vivitek Qumi Q5, which would be well-suited for someone who really only cares about portability. The Qumi Q5 costs $555 (£360.88, AU$708.59) and weighs (1.1 lbs, 490 grams). However, the LG PW800 outperforms the Qumi in most aspects, so keep reading if both size and performance are crucial for you.
