What People Are Saying

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).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product overall. After using this projector a little bit I have a pretty good idea of its potential. The image is very clear, colors are very nice. Brightness is on the low end, with sunlight it is useless, however it can handle artificial room lightning ok, Not very bright but watchable, if you need to watch under heavy light conditions, then this is not the right projector for you. The ultra short throw ability is amazing, saves tons of space and no need for wires all over the place, the picture quality is very good, however focus is never perfect across the entire image, this is not noticeable while watching a movie or playing video games, but it is an issue. In completely dark sceene there is a darker area in the lower left part of the image, but not visible during normal operation really. No rainbow artifacts is a nice thing! Overall this is a very nice projector, a little bit expensive in my opinion, but being able to have such a big picture with such small distance from the screen is great! Totally worth it.

Miracast is disabled after sometime. Smartshare is always working, wifi connection is good. Factory reset has been performed several times 

Asked by: Parkjun
Hello, It is recommended to connect a laptop using Intel’s WiDi within close range or Miracast may disable.Though Intel’s WiDi can be connected without a wireless router, it is recommended to connect the wireless router first for optimal performance.

I see it supports Vudu, does it support Vudu's 3D movies?  or would I need to connect a different device to watch 3D movies from vudu?

Asked by: Jrmertz00
The LG Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector, Model # PF1000U is a 3D projector and regardless of where you are getting the 3D content from, be it VUDU's 3D movies or another service provider's 3D content, you will need to pair DLPLink™ 3D GLASSES, Model # AG-S250J with the projector in order for you to watch 3D movies/content. When you find a #D movie or tune to a 3D channel, you will need to activate the 3D mode by pressing the 3D button on the remote control and then putting the DLP-LINK glasses on and turning them on. The pairing with the DLP-LINK glasses is affected by the intensity of light reflected from the screen. Therefore, the pairing with DLP-LINK glasses may not work properly if the light reflected from the screen is not bright enough, such as when the surrounding area is bright, the screen is big, or the maximum energy saving mode is enabled. Some menus may not work while playing a 3D video. You can only watch a 3D video properly when the 3D video format option has been selected on the projector...^IFV

Hi, pleased with my projector purchase but would like to know when Amazon video will be available in Premium Apps. As of today it is not listed as available. Please provide a status, Netflix is available so would expect Amazon video app as well. Thanks.

Asked by: Cnet
We appreciate your interest in this projector and its features. According to our information, it appears that the AMAZON app should already be available. While it may not appear on the MENU screen under the PREMIUM icon, once the PREMIUM icon has been selected, additional options, including Amazon, should appear.

Hi.  I purchased PF1000U projector a few months ago and I am very happy with my purchase.  I have  two minor complains which I bet can be addressed through software update: 1) no Amazon Video App; 2) I have to reconnect to my Bluetooth device every time. 

Asked by: Rezinsky
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this projector. It is suggested to check the PREMIUM APPS to see if the Amazon Video app might be available there. The Bluetooth reception could be having its signal interrupted if there are other Bluetooth devices active during pairing. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for further assistance with this matter.

can this product be mounted above the projector screen so that it is out of the way. Which probably would be upside down in aspects could the picture be reversed so its not upside down at this point

Asked by: Tom0381
We appreciate your interest in this projector. Check the OPTION menu for the PJT Mode selection. According to page 116 of the owner’s manual, this function turns the projected image upside down or flips horizontal.
