What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and Compact I’ve been using the projector for a few weeks. Good things: lots of connection choices, you can connect it to HDMI, bluetooth speaker, apple TV, Flash drive, Also Netflix, Hulu and Youtube are pre-installed in projector’s os. I have some recommendations for LG 1- the brightness could have been a bit higher, at least 1000 lumens. Right now you can only watch videos in very dark rooms 2-USB-C port functionality is a question to me, I tried connecting my macbook 12 inch to the projector with USB-C and projector doesnt recognize my macbook 3- Add airplay to it, lots of people have iphones these days. Airplay and iphone mirroring without having to connect an apple TV is a big plus for any projector. 4-Add backlit to the remote, as the projector has to be used in dark rooms. The remote could be better-built, sometimes it makes my fingers hurt cause I have to press the buttons really hard

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good projector with some flaws The Good: 1. Good quality projector and brighter than what the specifications convey. I had to lower the brightness in a dark room to prevent eye strain 2. Light weight but doesn't feel cheap 3. Can be easily connected via bluetooth/miracast/Nvidia share. The projector also remembers that it was connected to say a bluetooth speaker so that when you turn it on later, it connects automatically. 4. You can use the LG TV app to use your phone as a remote making it easier to type via your phone's keyboard instead of using the clunky on-screen keyboard. The Bad 1. The inbuilt speaker is tinny and worse than a good phone speaker. I use my google home as bluetooth speaker for the projector. 2. There is no lens cover or case. This is okay for a big projector which you would install somewhere and forget. Since this is marketed as a portable gadget, either a case or lens cover is necessary. 3. The menu is pretty laggy. Sometimes it takes a couple of seconds to move to open up the settings. 5. The focus ring is a dial with a protruding knob which makes it easy to accidentally change focus. I wish it turned less freely or was sort of ratcheted. The Okay: 1. There is no manual keystone correction and the auto correction can be laggy. 2. Browser is slow and near useless as it doesn't run flash videos. 3. The app selection is poor and there is no support for Amazon prime. The easy connectivity makes this and the slow browser less of a problem. 4. You cannot connect a bluetooth mouse or keyboard unless it comes with a dongle (the old fashioned ones) which you plug in to a USB port. The aforementioned LG TV app comes to the rescue where you can use your phone keyboard and as a touchpad. Overall I'm pretty happy with my purchase. I keep the projector in a mini tripod (Manfrotto Pixi Evo) on the floor and project onto the ceiling. This gives a screen of about 70"-80". For a case I highly recommend the Lowepro Dashpoint AVC 80 II. It fits the projector like a glove even though it was designed to carry mini cameras/drones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overall an impressive display, bulb disappointing I purchased this unit based on the tremendous feedback about portability, battery operation and picture quality. After use, I can unequivocally say it is very portable and has a phenomenal picture for the price. So why a rating of "1" is a great question. The purpose of having a portable projector is to take it and use it someplace other than at home. While 600 lumens is not bright for well lit rooms, it still works. When traveling with a projector I like to carry a spare bulb just in case the bulb were to burn out so I am not out of commission. Well, do not expect to do that with this projector. Your backup plan has to be to have a second projector as you have to return this projector to the factory to get the bulb replaced. This, to me, is a critical show stopping issue for a "portable" projector. While I have not had a problem so far with the bulb, others have reported it burning out well below the 30,000 projected hours...as a matter of fact some are reporting burn out in 100s of hours, not 1000s of hours. Do not use this projector as a road warrior unless you can afford to not use your slides or unless you carry a back up projector with you.

Have this projectors got UL certification?

Asked by: Alibaba2019
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that electronics meet certain standards in order to be marketed and sold in the United States and electronic products need to meet local safety standards in most countries. UL (Underwriter Laboratory) is actually just one of the many NRTLs, or Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories. There are numerous laboratories that fall into this category, but UL is the best known. The other alternative to UL is ETL and it is in every way an equal to UL for acceptance. The LG Full HD LED Smart Home Theater Projector with Built-In Battery, Model # PF50KA will either be UL or ETL listed...^IFV
