What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome with 1 or 2 minor annoyances So I will break it down: Pro: Small, Bright, sharp quality, easy to use, descent battery life, DOES NOT overheat Cons: fan is a little loud (not a problem with external speakers) OS is a little sluggish (not as responsive as I'd like), doesnt do edge to edge screen (there is a quarter of an inch of black border all the way around, did not come with a carrying case or a lense cover. The cons are all very minor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great projector I bought this projector a month ago. I set it up right away. The picture is great and has apps built in like Netflix, WWE, hulu and more. The speaker could be louder but the projector works with blu tooth speakers. So I connect my speaker and I have plenty of sound to go with a great picture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact projector with amazing image quality It's compact size and the ability to mount it on a photo tripod make it a great graphic design tool. It has a very solid WiDi interface that that works with all of the phones and tablets I've tried. The auto-keystone is very accurate. The picture quality is amazing. It's a pleasure to use in my business!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great small 1080p projector. Needs Improvements. Pros: 1080p projector with battery and audio for mobility; 600 lumen & 100K contrast ratio. Accepts usb card reader. Antenna reception for me to watch broadcast tv, apps, wifi and bluetooth. Cons: No interface on the projector. Need it in case you lose the remote or it's dead. Otherwise, you'll have to use your phone. Price should be lower. Audio/speaker should be Harmon Kardon with higher wattage 5 or 10W. No lens cover. No auto focus. Even some 720p Chinese projectors have a UI on the projector to allow users to control the projector.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product from LG except few minor issues Below is my findings after using it for almost a month. Pros: Youtube, Hulu and Netflix is there so that's a plus. Builtin speakers are sufficient if you are used to of TV speakers. Battery option is good as well. Very light weight. Great clarity. Easy to operate. Cons: USB C type doesn't work with MacBook Pro for video. In terms of the LG smart apps, there are very limited apps available. Wireless throw from mobile devices is also limited supported as it really depends on the apps. It doesn't have horizontal keystone correction. So it has to placed in center to display properly. Since lumens is low, it's dim in daylight. So will have to use it in low light conditions.
