What people are saying
Rated 4 out of
Works as expected and it impresses all my friendsOverall, I am very happy with the projector. I wont comment on things that are obvious from reading the specs such as the lack of more than two HDMI ports.
The front of the projector is approx 23 inches away from the wall for a 120 inch diagonal picture. My projector is in the living room on the ground floor so there is plenty of daylight in the room. Quality of the picture is very good at night time. During day time, as expected, the picture is visible and tolerable but is washed out and not anywhere close to a TV. I mostly watch TV after kids go to bed so I am happy but for sports fans who need to watch during day time in a well lighted room, this might not work for you. Inbuilt apps include YouTube. There is no app for Netflix or Prime or other popular services. So, I have to use my Roku stick for all that, which takes up one of my only two HDMI inputs. Remote is user friendly. Sound volume from inbuilt speaker is not very loud but is good enough for watching TV. The inbuilt speaker sound quality is very basic. I have attached my projector to a soundbar through bluetooth.
Overall, I am happy with the purchase. No one else among my friends or family has a back throw projector so I get a lot of compliments about how cool it is. I got rid of the TV in my livingroom and replaced it with this projector and I am not going back. But I do wish that the picture was bright enough for daytime use.

Good picture, lacks all he best apps!Nice picture, blue tooth audio lagging a bit. Pretty easy set up. Big thing here is that the most popular apps are not available for this particular model (which doesn't make any sense since it has the same UI as many other LG TV and Projector products), so Amazon Prime, HBO, Netflix, none of these are available as an app through the LG Content Store. To fix, try a third party accessory like Chrome Cast or AppleTV. It is a shame though that one woudl have to do that and I will say I probably would not have purchased this particular model. Hoping to prevent the same for other consumers!

The Netflix app can be found in the LG Content Store, but if it does not show in the search for it on the projector, then it is not compatible with the projector.

Does this model support YouTube tv?
Does it support HBO go?
Asked by: Lauer2001
The YouTube TV app does not come preloaded on the LG CineBeam Ultra Short Throw Laser Smart Home Theater Projector, Model # HF85LA. Additional compatible apps can be downloaded from the LG Content Store (App Store) and installed on the projector by launching the LG Content Store feature from the projector's home screen. The YouTube TV app is a compatible app for our TVs, but if you do a search for it on the projector and it does not appear in the search that would mean it is not compatible with the projector. The HBO Go app is not available for download in the LG Content Store the Hulu app is available and it will give you access live HBO programming as well as on-demand access to HBO shows and movies using the Hulu or HBO Now app...^IFV
