lg_minibeam_4The thing about projectors is that they’re a quick and affordable way to get yourself a big screen without splashing money on a big screen TV. Of course there are drawbacks like color reproduction, clarity, and so on, but like we said, it’s definitely a lot more affordable to be able to project a 60-inch screen than to buy one.


Now LG has been creating portable projectors for a while now that falls under its Minibeam lineup, and just recently the company has taken the wraps off its latest offerings, the PH450U and the PH150G. The former will be the more “advanced” of the two and will cost you more, while the latter model is aimed at being more affordable and portable.

According to LG, the PH450U is capable of displaying a 720p HD image on an 80-inch screen from a distance of 33 cm. It also has 450 lumens which apparently makes it the brightest battery-powered UST projector available in the market today. Its lamp life is estimated at 30,000 hours so users can expect to use it for up to 10 years (your mileage might vary).

As for the PH150G, this is a portable projector that measures 115 x 115 x 44.5 mm and is capable of projecting a 100-inch display. It will sport a 2.5 hour battery life, although at 150 lumens, it is definitely not as bright as the PH450U. It is priced at $350 while the PH450U will be priced at $650.
