The entry level Canon LV-7290 isn't
something you want to look down at. For starters, being a Canon projector, it
is known for its brilliant colour projection. Its usage extends to other than
office and classroom use as the projector is also good for home usage. Let’s
see how this affordable projector does when being put to the test.
1. All you need is one hand
While taking the LV-7290 out from the box,
the projector is give the impression of lightweight and small as it is
manageable with only one hand. At this size, the Canon LV-7290 is highly
portable and easily transported from room to room. The LV-7290 conveniently
come equipped with wired networking, monitor out and blackboard mode. There
isn't really much setting up to do as the setup is simple enough. So, with this
projector people can present straight from the computer.
2. Hassle-free setup
Upon start up, the projector detects the
correct port and appropriate signal resolution then displays the image near
instantaneously, in less than three seconds (yes, we counted). The menu
interface is simple and intuitive. While there are many different options, the
LV-7290 makes it easy to find what you need without hunting. However, with the
projector's low mono audio, watching movies or videos with it is highly NOT
recommended. Whatever sounds that plays through its audio will just annoy users
as it is a mono speaker, still, it is good to know that there is a backup
speaker in case there is anything wrong with other speakers. Despite being
mono, its audio is loud and clear as people inside a room can definitely hear
it from afar.
3. Imaging goody
The LV-7290 creates a bright, clear image
that is sharp throughout. In High Contrast and Cinema modes, colour is accurate
with good saturation that makes movies, photographs, and other graphics look
realistic. In the projector’s lower lumen image modes, black level and shadow
detail are acceptable for movie and video display. Meanwhile, its brighter
modes favour maximum light output at the expense of lighter black levels and
muddier shadow detail. Visible pixelation is noticeable as a fine grid if one
stands too near to the screen. Solving It is easy as the projector just need to
be moved by a distance away from the screen. That should be enough to eliminate
the pixelation effect.

4. Quick access remote
Similarly, the remote is neither too
complicated nor too featureless. It is compact, yet big enough to hold
securely. The remote has just enough proportionately sized buttons to do
exactly what is needed. It also have a few convenient button like “Image
setting" to avoid going through many layers of menus. Plus, with features
such as Freeze presented in the remote, it is easy to freeze a frame when
needed to do some explanation during a presentation. Ultimately, those
unacquainted with this particular projector will still be able to use it with
minimal orientation time.
