What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There is a big disadvantage but it's good! Everythings perfect with this machine. But you can not adjust zoom in or out. You have to change the machine directly forward or backward. it's verry funny. is it really hard to make a button or something for it. For example if your Wall does not fit with your projector you can do nothing !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small with Great Picture Quality I bought this projector about a month ago. I was skeptical of the picture quality, given that the Ultra Short Throw is relatively new. I was pleasantly surprised after I got it all setup, the picture is great. No you can't really use it in a sunlit room but it is a home theater projector mainly for movies. I have my projector in a room that does not get direct sunlight and it is amazing. I was so impressed with this projector, I built my own entertainment center specifically for the projector. I put the projector under glass to minimize dust collecting on the lens and mirror and installed cooling fans to eliminate excess heat build up. I have the projector set at a distance farther than recommended, to give me a 120" screen and it performs perfectly with great picture quality. All my friends are amazed at how it works and how good the picture is. I bought this projector to watch movies but because of how well it performs, I use it for watching regular television as well. I have not even turned on my 70" inch television, since purchasing this projector. I will probably buy a second one for another room. Overall great job by LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect Hardware - 4/5 - Weight remove the speaker it just add to weight, add "distance from wall" value displaced when moved or placed near a wall. Software 4/5 -- App and appstore need lot of improvement. Bluetooth with Amazon Echo doesn't work. Fire dongle works just fine with Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Projector Looks great, just wish there was a way to remove the slight bend at the top center. No alignment options for that. Its pretty small though and if you line the image up with the cloth it can easily hide that and the rest of the screen looks perfect and clear as can be. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST PROJECTOR?! For what i could see, this is the best projector that you could ask for

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good device, zero app support So, I set this thing up and everything looks good. I go to the app store to install some the usual: Pandora, Plex, etc. Pandora? Nope. Plex? Not a chance. In fact, they have a whopping 35 total apps. That's right, TOTAL. So much for it being a "smart" device.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Portable and Ultra Short Throw are plus points I bought this Projector and have been using for more than a month now. Recommended for below points: - Ultra Short Throw : No need for Extra room setup and can be used on a TV Table. - Portable : Small and portable - Input options : HDMI, Cable Antenna, USB. Almost all options you need like a TV - MiraCast : Casting enabled is another great feature, removes the need for a Chromecast - Life : With no need to change a lamp this can be used a daily use screen like TV Problem Areas: - Dark areas : They become obtrusive on black/night scenes - Not very Bright : But work in Theater setup rooms - Priced High then expected : The Price should be lower to justify a buy for this Item as many users even if impressed by this projector turn away for other options. Other Features: - Ok Speaker Sound: Need external for a good watching experience - Acceptable Fan sound : If Maximum Energy saving is enabled, the Fan sound does not bother and especially if you are using external speakers. - LG Smart : Not a great piece of feature but works for some basic TV Streaming services. I would really like LG to address the screen Dark Areas issue with an update (Hardware or Software).

I have bought this but it is not same as yours from amazon does the 3d work with hdmi and what glasses work best

Asked by: David tyke
The LG Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector, Model # PF1000U is the same model that carries. It has an AV In port, a Component port and an HDMI 1 ARC port on the side of the unit and an HDMI 2 (MHL) port in the back of the unit that can be connected to any compatible device. Regardless of the port used, 3D images can be watched on a screen when the 3D video format option on the projector is selected. As recommended in the owner's manual for the PF1000U, the 3D glasses must be DLP-Link (Ready) glasses. Pages 54 through page 59 gives explicit details on viewing 3D with this projector...^IFV

I bought the projector in US and brought it back to Saudi Arabia. I have tried to connect it to cable here but it doesn't work. Someone mentioned that they have PAL in Saudi while US is NTSC or SECAM. Is there a quick solution?

Asked by: blue smoke

Amazon prime video app is not available under premium services. When will it become available?

Asked by: Cnet
We regret your dissatisfaction with the options of this projector. The projector manufacturer does not write the software for the applications found on the device and in the LG Content Store. As such, if the software developers do not write application software for this unit’s application platform, then the apps will not be available for use.
