Projector Central Reviews the Canon LV-7490 Projector

Projector Central recently reviewed the new Canon LV-7490, Canon’s first 4000-lumen, XGA, portable LCD projector.

Projector Central praised the Canon LV-7490’s size, price and realistic colors.

“Weighing in at just 7.2 lbs, and street priced under $1,000, it is one of the lightest and least expensive 4000 lumen projectors on the market….” – “In High Contrast and Cinema modes, color is accurate, with good saturation that makes movies, photographs, and other graphics look realistic.”

Projector Central gave the Canon LV-7490 4.5 stars and the coveted Highly Rated award.
