LG PF1500 DLP Projector overview

 

LED FHD 1400 ANSI ATSC WIDI WIFI SMART

Consumer review (newegg.com)

This is the only good LED projector available at a reasonable price.

 

- Excellent brightness for an LED projector - Versatile smart TV features, and wifi connectability and bluetooth sound

- The zoom is very limited, so unless you want to use keystone and sacrifice image quality, this projector needs to be very specifically distanced from the projection surface

Outstanding Projector

 

No bulbs to deal with was the main reason I purchased this projector. Picture is outstanding. I was worried that it would not be bright enough but I found it to be perfect even with the shades up. Worth every cent.

The built in speakers are not great but I really don't care as I am getting my audio from my AV system. Also it has Bluetooth so you can link Bluetooth speakers to the projector so it can sound great. Almost wished LG shaved the price a little by not...

Awesome Projector!!

 

Amazing bang for you buck, I've gotten 2 of these and highly recommend them. LG should be getting a lot more recognition for this line LED projector line of products.

Bright Projector, no warm up time (instant full brightness), smart projector (one of very few), the bulb does not get dimmer and lasts much longer because its LED, cool remote as it tracks where you point, very light and compact (great for traveling),...

Could have a bit more zoom instead of just 1.1x.

Awesome projector

 

I really think this is a great project at a great price. With the picture size I get from this, it beats out and TV I can buy. The theater-like experience totally makes up for any quality in picture that I lose versus a television. I would buy this...

-Great picture, even at ~200 inches -Small & portable -LED light source...never replace a bulb -Smart features work great. I use Netflix & Vudu -Motion remote -Can mount on mini tripod for easy positioning -Bluetooth audio steaming...no stretching...

-Dark scenes can be too dark...although this may somewhat be a problem of DLP in general

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

With this versatile 1080p led projector in my possession, I can wait comfortably for LG to come out with a 4K resolution projector in 3-6 years. I'd give this a 9/10 rating. 1 point off for noise level and inadequate Zoom.

I bought this for $1200 CAN. It is worth every penny. The 1080p is so much better than my 1 year old 720p acer k335 projector. It has 2 HDMI ports and a cable tv port. I made a cheap antenna and I am getting 5 free hd channels over-the-air. It has apps...

The fan noise level is a problem, unless you are using headphones or earphones or if you have a separate room just for the projector like in a theatre. I have the brightness and contrast just over 50% and the fan noise is equivalent to a tower computer...

Exceeds Expectations

 

This is an excellent product. It greatly exceeded my expectations. Comparing this to a large screen smart TV in the same price range, I'll take this one every time. You might get a 60 inch nice TV in this price range. It will also take up a bit of...

*This is a very nice 1080p Smart TV in a small very transportable package. *The documentation is excellent, You receive not only a printed copy, but also a pdf copy on DVD. *Setup is very simple, plug it in, turn it on using the 'magic' remote and...

No cons of any significance. Focusing is not intuitive, nor is the function of the tiny joystick on the top of the projector. These are explained clearly in the manual. The stereo speakers in the projector are adequate for a small room, but sound...
