Stunned!

 

I will never buy a dinosaur projector with replaceable bulb again after seeing the beautiful image led puts out. Led lumens are under rated compared to old projector bulbs. This thing is great in a semi lit room such as daylight or overhead lighting...

Small form factor-this thing is tiny ; Brightness @500 lumens = watching in semi lit room no problem/dark room stunning ; No bulb changes ; Better color saturation ; No rainbows from DLP

No Bluetooth ; No digital zoom ; No digital focus

Excellent for what it is.

 

I bought this back in December of 2014 to mount at the head of my four-poster canopy bed, with a screen built into the foot of the bed. I've been running it quite a bit until now (May 2015) and for my needs it works almost perfectly, and just as good...

Very small footprint; auto-inverts the image for ceiling mount; mounts easily with a simple CCTV-type camera mount; includes decent carry case that holds everything, great picture in semi- to mostly darkened room; Instant-off and quick on with LED...

Always asks if you want to use the HDMI input if it's plugged in

Neat Little Projector

 

At $300 I think it's a good buy of it lasts as long as advertised or frankly even half as long as advertised. While it won't be replacing my CRT projectors for serious home theater viewing, it's a neat little projector to bring on the run. I was...

Extremely small, relatively quiet, low power consumption, supposedly long LED light life, powers on and off quickly, reasonably bright for such a small projector -- could be used with some ambient light on its brightest setting, nice contrast ratio,...

No zoom lens, focus wheel is flimsy, not a fan of the glossy finish, slight RBE (rainbow effect) though not horrible -- at least better than some other entry-level non-LED DLPs I've seen, black levels aren't the best, though compared to my CRT...

Incompatible Dongle; No WIDI usage

 

just don't know why this dongle is shipped with this LG model when it only works with WIDI doesn't work with the dongle that comes with the projector; talked to LG and I got was that it suppose to work with that model when it clearly doesn't have this...

the multiple uses it has; great for doubling as tv; pretty bright for a portable; the amount of accessories is great ; Very portable; lamp hours is also alot compared other portables

just one multiple use doesn't work - Bad dongle ; incompatible dongle it is shipped with only works with 2011-2010 Projector: HX350Y, HW300; audio is pretty low but that can be fixed by routing audio a speaker system

great product

 

this product is brighter than my old traditional lamp projector that benq claimed was 2500 lumins. at 500 lumins this thing works really nicely in a sunlit room at a distance of a little over 10 feet. the keystone feature is vertical only but it almost...

very small and gets kind of frustrating trying to use the manual focus wheel without moving the whole projector and pressing all the soft touch buttons

Very good while it worked

 

I bought this as a primary display due to its very long lamp life. I used it about 3-4 days a week for 2-4 hours each day. It worked well at first, covering all my needs (displaying, connecting to PC and consoles via a HDMI switch etc) and some of my...

Price: nice price point for a good projector ; Size: very small and lightweight, I mounted on a standard sized tripod easily ; Display: is quite good when the lights are out; but not so bright for when there is light, however I used it in a darkened...

Needs a dark room otherwise will be washed out ; No auto focus or zoom. Needed to set projector at the right distance for the desired size, which was a bit inconvenient ; Nvidia 3DTV or Play doesnt work with it due to the resolution and non support. I...

I normally go for cheap, but...

 

Overall not bad. LG now has a model very similar to this for only $300 at the moment on Newegg.

Nice projector to play games and watch movies on. Picture quality is about how you would expect HD 720p. On a white wall, where I have it projecting it sizes up to about 120 inches diagonal and still looks great. Remote + all the features work fine on...

It seems to come unfocused frequently which is a little disappointing, feels like you have to refocus it each day you use it. Not the brightest projector if you are used seeing a DLP projector I would say this is noticeably dimmer. Still great in the...

LG PB63U

 

This is a great little projector. While it is very bright for an LED display, it is still not quite up to viewing with the lights on. However, turn off the lights and get the curtains mostly closed and the image on a white wall is amazing. The built in...

Well, the sad thing is that 11 months after purchase, the unit just died. Right in the middle of a movie it just turned off and will not come back on. I suspect we'll have to experience the warranty service

WILL do 120hz in 2D on PC!

 

The pros completely outweigh any minor cons. This is a wonderful little projector with so many features for every application. I strongly encourage anyone in the projector market to give this one a try. You will have a very hard time letting go of it :)

I bought this to upgrade from an Acer k11 200 Lumens LED Projector. My K11 has been a great bedroom and travel projector for well over 3 years now but I wanted newer tech and a brighter image. Almost 4 years ago 200 Lumens LED projectors were $400 to...

If I had to dig up a couple cons one would be its speaker. Pretty darn terrible. I recommend either a little set of PC speakers wired to the audio out or a receiver. 2: The fan speed is linked to the brightness level you have set. There are 3. I have...
