LG PH550 Projectors (2016) vs Anker Nebula Mars (2018)

Analysis:

The LG PH550 is widely considered to be a great Mini Projector at its $520 budget. The Anker Nebula Mars 2 (2018), however, while also a good product at this price point, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well.

The LG PH550 was loved by reviewers at PCmag, a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Home Projectors for 2020" roundup where it was named its "Best for Video and TV Watching", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Moving on to the Anker Nebula Mars 2 (2018): it has done really well in a number of roundups done by sources that perform objective and reliable testing, including Reviewed, Expert Reviews, and Android Central - it won the "Top Pick" title from Reviewed, "The most versatile portable projector" from Expert Reviews, and "Ranked 1 out of 1" from Android Central. That points towards it being a cut above most of its competitors.
