Do any of you guys have a regular 2,000 lumen PJ and this PJ and can compare them for us, because I usually like to read Pro reviews and a lot of user reviews before buying my gadgets. Even if you guys have the led 500 lumen models that can compare the brightness to this 300 lumen model, that would be helpful. I'm just not sure if the people that bought this model already had 2,000 lumen PJ's and know what they are missing by not comparing them with this model. I like the LED feature and the size of this model. Why didn't any PRO site review it?
first, I have the panny 4000, and of course the LG is no match, but Im not going to stream netflix on it and use up my lamp with that. I have the panny in my basement on a 130" screen and the LG is 94" in my bedroom, I'd say the brightness is about the same the way I have them calibrated. the reason you don't see pro reviews is because LG didn't release this projector widely, it was only carried by frys electronics and canadian retailers, and of course europe and asia, but in the US most people haven't even heard of it.
contrast ratio for the LG is rated 1,000:1 but I personally think it's a conservative number since I've seen videos on youtube comparing the LG with the other popular LED projectors that claim 4000:1 contrast ratios and frankly blacks on the LG seem darker on the videos.
