LP70 full review

You don’t have to go too far back to when a portable digital projector meant it came with a trolley. The latest offering from InFocus is so small it could get lost down the back of a sofa – how times change. The LP70 is tiny, but the reactions of those who see it are big. Its footprint is about the size of A5 paper – half the size of this page – yet it doesn’t feel too small. From a technical standpoint, the LP70 is nothing short of miraculous. InFocus has crammed a projector into a box just 199-x-63.4-x-148mm. This might be less of a challenge if the designers had forgone the high technical standards of the other models in the InFocus range – then they could have made it smaller by making it low resolution, less bright, or adding less soundproofing. The LP70’s image quality is uncompromisingly high. It outputs a brightness of 1,100 ANSI lumens – enough for any conditions except direct sunlight. It boasts a contrast ratio of 800:1, and a whisper-quiet 32dB of audible noise. The weedy 1W speaker is the only compromise, but that saves us from the swooshing sound effects of bad PowerPoint presentations. The dot-com bandwagon meant that high-tech goodies, such as tiny digital projectors, were being sold by the bucket load while the market was hot in the US. The more-conservative Europeans were less inclined to blow £4-5,000 on personal projectors. Thankfully, prices have dropped to a more-affordable level, meaning you get the same features for just £2,500.
