What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Video Quality Native 1080p awesome projector, small and packed with features. If you are very sensitive to sound the fans might annoy you if you have the projector over your head; they create a sharp sound when the projector light (Luman) output is set to the max. Now in terms of inputs awesome two HDMI all you need now days and USB powered port in addition to a an Optical for audio and antenna aux. Great projector for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture but lacks 3D Using this primarily for movies and light gaming. Pros: Colors are great after calibration. Black level and brightness is excellent even when set to medium power saving mode. Cons: Expensive, "portable", lacks 3D, no HDMI cable included, needs better/adjustable fan profiles. Response time/input lag got much better with recent firmware updates but not yet perfect.

What is the controller code for the PF85U? I want to use my AV Receiver's remote, but cannot find the code anywhere.  None of the 14 codes that my receiver pulls up work as it is only pulling up TV codes.  There is no projector code look up option.

Asked by: dGrizz
All codes to be used for programming the Universal remote control will be located in the setup instructions for the Controller. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies. If these do not resolve the matter, then the two devices may not be compatible.

1. What is the throw ratio for the LG PF85U, the ratio between image width and throw distance?

Does LG have a 1920 x 1080 native LED light source projector with an ultra short throw lens?
Asked by: tekamaki
I have mine about 5 feet back and it throws about 70" across, it's huge if that answers your question?
