TrustedReviews explain that often premium brands make poor attempts at more budget-priced offerings upon their initial attempts to enter this very different market. However, they confirm that the Runco LS-5 is not a victim of these failings, having created a product that out-perfoms its competitors sufficiently so as to retain the companies good reputation, whilst only costing slightly more.

Not only is the LS-5 affordable, it's also a fantastic performer, to the point that TechRadar said that its pictures looked as if they came from a three-chip DLP projector. They did complain that it's quite noisy when running, but it's a minor quibble when its amazing brightness, lens options, colour, contrast and lack of DLP artifacts are considered.
