What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs Better Procesor so far i am very happy after a year but it does need a better procesor
Date published: 2017-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the most fun projectors I've ever had Such a fun and simple to use projector, amazing image quality, I actually have it at 140 inches. With only 1000 lumens you will need a dark room though, just get curtains. And super portable too I take it with me to friend's house all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who needs a TV anymore?! This projector has changed the way we consume tv and use the internet. The unit is very light and compact while projecting a great image.. we even use it throughout the day. Apple TV allowed us to connect all our iOS devices with ease. I would highly recommend this projector for anyone who is looking to stream content. Cam

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible software The software is horrible! Registering and all also is HORRIBLE. The video quality isn't bad and all it's just the software that makes is so bad. This device will frustrate you just trying to find "apps"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good 1080P Projector, Horrible "Smart TV" While this is a good 1080P Projector, I can't recommend it to anyone that cares about the "Smart TV" features. The primary apps I use are not supported (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, HBO, Pandora, Plex, etc.) The lumin output is OK, but you will need to strictly control ambient light (eg. blackout curtains, etc.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your buck I found this to perform really well in a dark room and reasonably well in ambient light conditions. It is not the best for direct light conditions - not much of a problem for my situation. Other than that, this projector is absolutely fantastic - LED lamp, Ultra Short throw, Bluetooth connectivity for audio, up to 100 inches screen, full HD resolution & reasonably silent for my taste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NO APP NO NETFLIX NO ZOOM IN OR OUT think about that. there is a app store but just five items in there. and the year is 2016 :D verry funny. there is no netflix. is it very hard. i think no.
Date published: 2016-11-13
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 !!!

The mirror on my PF1000U is damaged, it's not scratched but appears to have developed a faded or darkened mark on the centre of the mirror. This results in a visible dark patch on the projected image. Can I get a replacement mirror?

does this projector need a special screen to show in 3d

There are some manufacturers who make screens specially designed for 3D, but the need for such screens is discretionary. You can watch 3D from the LG Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector, Model # PF1000U on any screen as long as you have 3D glasses that are the DLP-LINK (DLP Ready) type...^IFV

Is the minimum screen size of 60" a diagonal measurement?  My screen is 50" x 50" Can it be ceiling mounted above the screen?

Asked by: DanJan
The LG Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector, Model # PF1000U has a 120% ratio of upward projection and should be positioned so that the projector is at a right angle to the screen. The minimum screen size of 60" (1,524 mm) is for the diagonal. The Horizontal and vertical measurements will be 52.3" (1,328 mm) x 29.4" (747 mm). The projector can be installed on the ceiling by attaching a celing-type bracket to the projector with M4 x 8 mm screws...^IFV

Hi, I am in Dubai and have been told that the PF1000U which they stock does not have the magic remote. Could you explain why please. Is it something to do with it being EU instead of US version. If so what other differences is there?

Any time the camera shot pans quickly to the left or right (think like a panorama does), the edges of the picture get very wavy. I have another projector, so I know it isn't the screen. Any suggestions?

Asked by: ACE13765
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this projector. Some additional information is required in determining the manner of waviness of the image. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance in this matter.

Can I mount it from the ceiling? Should then I put the projector upside down? 

Asked by: Danielg
We appreciate your interest in this projector and its functions. It is possible to invert the image of the projector. Press the HOME button and select the OPTION menu. From here, access the PJT Mode, which is designed to turn the projected image upside down or flipping it horizontally.
