One of my favorite thingsPicked this up a a little over a year ago and it has exceeded my expectations. For the first month or so we just had it projecting against the wall and that was satisfying enough, but once we got a screen up it was a whole new level. Hook this up to a halfway decent stereo setup and you can have a very legit movie night whenever you want. The short throw is absolutely ideal for setup since you won’t need to run and cables around your living room and you don’t have to worry about getting blinded by the beam whenever you walk through the room. There’s nothing that really checks the boxes of quality, size and price like this projector. The only mark I have against it is that the lg App Store seems to be more limited, which isn’t an issue if you have a streaming device you already use (gaming console, Roku, Apple TV).

Beautiful colorThe projector has great color but I’ve had consistent sound and power problems which is disappointing at the price point. My previous projectior only lasted 3 years.

Low quality, 4 dead pixels after about 30 hoursI bought this projector about 2 years ago. It's in a movie room and is only used about once a month. We had watched about 10 movies or so for a total of maybe 30 hours? First pixel went dead and was annoying. Within three months another three pixels went dead, all near the center. This is not acceptable and is annoying during dark scenes having bright white dots.
I have had great experiences with LG televisions which steered me towards this projector.

I have a number of areas on the screen that are not getting light, acting like "dead pixels". I suspect there are dust particles blocking it. Are there instructions on how to disassemble the device so I can clean it?

I am considering this projector. I need to place the projector in a tube and have it project onto the back of a white sheer screen covering the opening of the tube. Will image be reversed? The distance to screen will be 5". Can you suggest a model?
Asked by: Neobeo
The image from the LG CineBeam Ultra Short Throw Laser Smart Home Theater Projector, Model # HF85LA will not be reversed if you project it on the back of a white sheer screen covering. Regrettably, we do not have any projectors that will reverse the image as you have described. The shortest distance from the screen that this projector can be placed is 17.5" from the back of the projector and 3.0" from the front of the projector for an image that is 78.4" x 44.1inches (i.e. a 90" screen)...^Ivan

I have a couple questions about projector LG HF85A.
Does this projector have digital zoom ?
If I want to get a picture less than 90" can I get it with this projector via digital zoom or moving it closer to the screen ?

can my laptop connect in any way by bluetooth to the beamer? or is it only sound?
is there a way to do this with an app or hardware such as chromecast?
Asked by: VBSC
What kind of laptop do you have, is it a Windows OS laptop or a MacOS laptop? The Screen Share (Content Share) feature for the LG CineBeam Ultra Short Throw Laser Smart Home Theater Projector, Model # HF85LA is compatible with Miracast supporting devices. Apple products do not support Miracast and Bluetooth only supports audio. The projector supports Plug and Play, so if your laptop supports Plug and Play, it will automatically detect the projector and driver installation is not required. You can also connect a laptop to the HDMI port on the projector if your laptop has an HDMI output. With Content Share, if you have Windows 7 or later installed on your PC, you can play music, video, photos, etc. on your projector without needing to install a separate program. Right-click the desired music/video/photo file you wish to play, then select your model using the “Play To” feature built into Windows 7 or later to play the file. You can use SmartShare PC Software to connect the music/videos/photos saved on the PC to your home network and play them on the projector. Configure the projector and PC installed with SmartShare on the same network. The SmartShare service is only available when the projector and server PC are connected to a single router. Download and install SmartShare PC Software from the LG website...^IFV
