What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small yet powerfull Was worried about the brightness, but it outperformed my assumptions. Short throw feature is awesome, requires less distance from the screen. In-built speakers are good for a small room. doesn't heat up, value for money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I had hoped! Compact, beautifully made and with great functionality. It has an easy-to-use, very intuitive interface, and everything worked as it is supposed to. Don't be concerned about the 450 Lumen rating...remember how close it is to the wall or screen (and your 'inverse squared' lessons from school science). I am very impressed, and might well buy another.

Hi. Can I input my receiver to the hdmi slot, so that all my sources will just run through the receiver> thanks.

Asked by: Dan12
We appreciate your interest in this projector and its options. In theory, there should be no trouble with connecting an audio receiver to this HDMI port, so long as a valid video signal is being transmitted through that HDMI cable. It is certainly possible to attempt such a connection.

Which processor does it has?

Asked by: arber23
The LG Ultra Short Throw LED Projector with Embedded Battery and Digital TV Tuner, Model # PH450U does not have a processor. If you are inquiring about the Digital TV Tuner, the U.S. version of this projector will be an ATSC and it also has an NTSC-M tuner. The version marketed in your region will have a DVB-T tuner in it...^IFV

We appreciate your interest in this projector. While moving the projector further from the screen would result in a larger image, it is not recommended to do so, as clarity of the picture will be affected.

How to turn on Miracast

The mirroring function of this device requires a MHL/Slimport connection. You must use a HDMI adapter to connect your cell phone to the projector and to output images and sound from your cell phone to the projector.
