It was great, until it stopped working :(I was really happy with the PH550 until the battery completely stopped working after just two years of use. There are two reasons why I can no longer recommend this product. 1) When the battery dies the projector becomes useless, it will not work with direct power from the power cable. That is a major design flaw. 2) It is very difficult, if not impossible, to replace the battery. I have contacted multiple LG Authorized Service Centers in Chicago area and no one can help. I tried to order the battery from authorized parts dealers and discovered they don't know what battery to order. Also, the battery isn't easy to replace, you will need technical skill with electronics to replace it, which is another design flaw. So, don't buy this or any LG projector that has a rechargeable battery. You will be disappointed.

What is the lumens in ph550? I have many movies in blu-ray 1080p... Is it support 1080p? Can I connect external hard disk?
Asked by: Ujji
The lumens represent the quantity of light that the projector can display.
550 is highly insufficient for rooms that have even a little light.
1080p means 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution for movies. Since the projector is 1280 x 720 (HD ready) you won't actually be able to enjoy the movies at their full quality.
As far as external hard drives go, 500mA power is actually not enough for most external hard drives to even turn on.
To anyone reading this, I suggest researching a bit on resolution and lumens before making a final decision on a specific projector.
