What People Are Saying

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 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.

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?

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.
