Canon SX7 Mark II
The REALiS is about as bright and powerful as compact projectors get.
The LV 8310 costs significantly less than the SX7 Mark II, but it definitely doesn't offer the same level of performance. Not only is the SX7 Mark II much brighter, it's much more flexible with its throw distance.
Blacks & Whites
The SX7 Mark II is significantly brighter than the LV 8310. Neither projector can maintain their black level on a bright screen.
The SX7 Mark II has much more consistent color temperature, but that's not to say the LV 8310 had problems with color temperature: the SX7 is impeccable, and the LV 8310 is pretty good.
Both projectors had a lot of motion blur and some motion artifacting issues.
For regular use, you shouldn't run into any throw or zoom issues with the LV 8310. If you're looking for performance, or just want to display on a huge screen in a bright room, however, the SX7 Mark II is a much better bet.
Both projectors have a good array of ports.
