LG HS102 ultra mobile projector

 

The LG HS102 comes in to replace the HS101 and sits in the category of projectors sandwiched between those which are truly pocketable and fully-fledged but compact home devices. The result is a device that lends itself to portability whilst still being...

Size, connection options, remote control, onboard speakers

Picture quality not great, remote control needed to access all functions, price

The compromise you have to accept for getting a small projector is that the performance suffers. As a result you are left with a device that is only really suited to business users, with the price of £550 being more than some respectable projectors...

LG HS102 review

 

LG follows Korean rival Samsung into the pocket projector market, with decent if expensive results

A promising pocket projector debut from LG, but doesn’t do enough to explain its relatively hefty price tag

LG HS102 review

 

Following on from Dell's M109S LED projector (see What's New, Shopper 255), LG has launched its assault on the ultra-portable market. The HS102 is roughly 50 per cent bigger than the M109S, but it packs a more powerful 160-lumen LED lamp.

LG HS102 Ultra Mobile projector

 

This terrific little long-life LED projector is limited only by its legacy resolution.

Make no mistake, this is no home cinema projector. But as a general-purpose, set-up-and-go projector for quick media shows, small presentations and general fun on the road, it is really very good indeed. The tripod support eradicates practically all...

LG - HS102

 

Gone are the days when office equipment was large, bulky and normally forced to be chained to the desk or floor for weight or safety reasons. Now it doesn't matter whether it's a computer, a printer, ...

If you're a business traveller with plenty of presentations to organise and don't always want to lug around a PC, the HS102's USB input will be very attractive. However, if you are thinking of using this as a multimedia projector, the image quality...

LG HS102G LED projector - Tech2

 

An ultra portable DLP projector with an LED lamp.

At an MRP of Rs 59,900 this one is not cheap. It does have a very nice feature of USB playback and of course, the ultra portability. Brightness could have been more, but it does deliver with clarity and accurate colors. So this projector has more good...

LG HS102G LED projector

 

LG has their Scarlet TVs, and their Cookie phones. But today we are looking at none of that, rather, the spotlight is on a tiny little projector called the LG HS102G that LG has introduced fresh in our market. It's small and fits in the palm of one's...
