LG’s 100-inch laser projector not the window into the future we had hoped for

LG’s Hecto doesn’t offer the sort of picture quality it needs to in order for it to make sense for most consumers. 

On paper, LG’s Hecto looked like something straight out of Star Trek. When we first reported on the 100-inch short-throw projector during the holidays in 2012, we found ourselves excited to check it out. The futuristic invention showed promise of making large-scale projection TV a more realistic option for those unable to accommodate a conventional projector installation. What’s not to like about that? 

Unfortunately, the Hecto’s picture quality is a bit of a disappointment to us. In our video, we explain why we’re underwhelmed, and express our puzzlement over exactly what sort of customer the Hecto might appeal to.
