5 out of 5 eggsvery good projector

Pros: - Great picture quality right out of the box. I set it up in Cinema mode, then ran my video calibration disc and only had to tweak the default settings slightly to make them perfect (see below).
- Plenty of lumens in a light-controlled room, and not too terribly washed out with a light on for watching TV. I've left it on the default medium energy savings mode.
- TV tuner works great for over-the-air HD channels; locks onto signal quickly. The entire projector is smaller than the standalone HD tuner for my TV!
- No focus issues (loose focus wheel) on my set.
- Fan noice is quite reasonable and not noticeable in anything but very quiet scenes.
- The set automatically recognizes which side is up, so you just flip it upside down and it knows it's in ceiling mount mode. I was surprised at first when those settings options were greyed out.
- The picture is only slightly less sharp than the mid-level CRT projectors I'm used to (but way better than an entry level CRT), but setup is so much easier without 3-bulb convergence to deal with. And 3 lbs vs 100+ lbs is a lot more manageable! Digital has really come a long ways the past few years.
- Works well doubling as a business projector, with a quality carrying case (which is good enough to be the packaging it ships in, which should make environmentalists happy) and typical hookups supplied for on-the-go usage.

Cons: - A small amount of zoom would be nice for fine tuning the placement.
- The regular remote died almost immediately. I called LG support and they walked me through the hard reset on both the projector and remote (see below), which aren't covered in the manual. Neither step fixed it, so they sent a replacement remote. Actually, it took three tries before the warranty claim was properly filed... The new remote arrived after five weeks. LG's support is friendly and easily accessed, but they don't always follow up on sending promised items or emails.
- 16x10 is awkward if you have a 16x9 screen... If you want the full screen width to be used, you have to live with a tiny bit of info spilling over the top and bottom. It's rarely an issue for watching movies, but it's a bit tough to read some of the menus without switching aspect ratios.
- The speakers are barely adequate for an alarm clock, let alone an A/V system. Use the headphone jack with a Y-splitter to run it to a real audio system when watching TV. Being a headphone jack, rather than proper Audio Out, plugging into it automatically mutes the speakers. That means you need to either use your audio system permanently or constantly connect/disconnect the cable.
- HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) does not appear to be supported for watching 5.1 TV broadcasts; it would need to be able to accept the TV input while keeping the HDMI input active to also function as an output. (I haven't tested this, as my receiver doesn't support it, either, but I don't see it in the specs or documentation.)
- The lens cap is ridiculously hard to thread on. The tab you're supposed to slide the string under has an opening at the bottom, so the string wants to go straight into the opening every time. It takes some patience to get it to curve back toward you.

Other Thoughts: For some reason, the specs and manual don't state the size of the mounting screws. I think they're pretty standard, since I used ones from another projector mount to check, but to save people some trouble, there are four of them (plus the tripod mount which is a different size thread) and they're M4 x 0.7.

The magic remote is pretty cool, as it doesn't need a direct line of sight. This can be quite handy, since a properly set up room will likely have the main seating position right below the projector and you'd have to bounce a signal off the back wall or contort over the back of the couch otherwise to get a regular IR remote signal to it. (Too bad their isn't a second IR sensor on the front of the projector, as that would allow you to easily bounce the signal off the screen in front of you.) As for having two remotes, think of it like a keyboard and mouse for your computer. The mouse (i.e., the magic remote) is a much quicker way of moving around than arrowing up/down/over, but the keyboard (i.e., the regular remote) is easier for small movements.

If you connect it to your computer via VGA (D-SUB), you'll be limited to 1024x768. Use DVI or HDMI to get the full resolution and the ability for the computer to recognize the monitor.

Projector Hard Reset (doesn't seem to change your customized settings):
1) turn off, 2) unplug, 3) wait 1 minute, 4) hold down power button for 30 seconds, 5) plug back in

Regular Remote Hard Reset:
1) remove batteries, 2) hold down Power and Settings buttons for 10 seconds

Everyone's set will probably be a bit different, but if you want to try my calibrated color settings, they are: Contrast = 74, Brightness = 31, Sharpness = 20, Color = 56, Tint = G2 (Component Input). Contrast = 91, Brightness = 56, Sharpness = 20, Color = 56, Tint = G2 (HDMI Input).

I haven't tried WiFi, USB, 3D, and the various apps.

Minimum energy saving mode lights up the picture a bit better, but you'll hardly miss the extra lumens in the default "medium" mode. (It would be nice if the manual specified bulb life for each of the three brightness modes, as well as how many lumens each is putting out.)

I had planned on waiting longer for more LED projector reviews, including long-term reliability, but at sub-$500 on special, it seemed like a good time to jump in. No regrets so far!

3 out of 5 eggspretty good as a low end pj

Pros: Decent brightness. 700 lumen sounds dim if compared with bulb pjs, but you can actually watch tv with one cfl on in the room. In the night, it's fantastic.

The image quality and color are also pretty impressive overall, with some problems discussed below.

Cons: Color banding... I can see it quite clearly that in low contrast low gradient area when colors are changing, it looks like 8bit images back in win3.1 time. For stationary pictures, the banding disappears.

Rainbow effect. If the contrast is high, you can see rainbow, even when you move your eyeball fast enough.

Physical pain: my wife said she had a headache after watching for a few hours of tv with it. It could be a common DLP issue, or i simply blew the image too large.

The built-in "smart" tv is actually pretty stupid. Youtube will halt after 20-30 minutes of watching. It also does not save browsing history, so if you accidentally hit "home" or "back", you will have to search again with the remote, and/or slowly jump to where you were in the middle of a video. It could be a pain.

Other Thoughts: The speakers are fair. it's loud enough, and sounds ok for most tv programs. For movies, a separate stereo system is required.

It would be much better if the lens could zoom.

Overall, it's a pretty good pj under $1k, but if you expect some breath-taking theater experience after reading all the positive comment, adjust your expectations. Keep in mind that when someone are still willing to pay 5 digits for a pj, you should know what $700 dollars give you.

5 out of 5 eggsTiny Projector, Amazing Picture

Pros: Absolutely amazed at the clear bright picture. I set up in my basement with a window in the room, blinds closed, lights on, the picture is still bright enough to see. Lights off, picture is even better and at night, its just like a theater. I have limited wall space so I only have a 100" screen but it is awesome. You can not beat this price! Less than $600 delivered. The projector itself is extremely lightweight and quiet. I have owned for four months and cant once remember hearing the fan running. I do have Bose surround sound hooked up so that may be the reason. It is a true theater experience between the Projector and the surround sound.

Cons: I am forced to upgrade to a blu ray player. Non blu rays were ok to watch on my 42" LCD tv but once you spread the picture out to 100" the quality is not so good. I highly recommend using blu ray with this projector.
I love the built in Digital TV tuner, but hate that I have to use the speaker in the unit itself to listen to regular TV. Wish I could run it through my Bose.

Other Thoughts: My basement is partially finished so it was no problem mounting the projector where I got the best picture. Some folks have issues because there is no focus on the projector and have to mount it in a place other than where thier old projector was mounted, in a finished basement, that could be a hassle.

5 out of 5 eggsJust awesome

Pros: LED lights, not worry about lamp life. Supports 3D. Quick on/off is also great. TV tunner, just plug in antenna and go!

Cons: A bit noisy
text from PC looks really bad, but for movies this is GREAT.

Other Thoughts: I installed this on a light controlled room, I setup a ~150 in screen and it just looks great. Tried some 3D movies and even at that size they look really good.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Picture!

Pros: Small, LED, Long lasting bulb, 3D, Price, Looks great on my 120" screen. Smart TV features are nice.

Cons: No zoom and limited focus options. Compared to other projectors it is hard to adjust the size and since there is no resize/zoom options on the lens, you are stuck having to move the physical position of the projector in order to fit to a screen.

Other Thoughts: Great projetctor for someone looking to have a projector to use heavily without worrying about the bulb. Fine for games and movies and don't let the lumens rating worry you because this projector is plenty bright in moderately lit rooms.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Great connectivity options + onboard digital tuner & WiFi. Very easy to set up. LED light source is bright enough that I can use it in moderately bright conditions. Very pleased with this projector overall, and got a great deal on it - thanks Newegg!

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Projector!

Pros: This is a small and easy projector to setup and use. The menu system can be a bit confusing, but I soon figured it out. It fairness, I just installed it and didn't read the documentation.

The LED bulb is worth the price of admission. Its life is very long! I've put off buying a projector until LED was available at a reasonable price.

Cons: Honestly, I don't have any. This projector works and works well.

Other Thoughts: The onboard audio is ok. I have a Bose 2.1 computer speaker system on it and the sound is excellent!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst projector

Pros: - Bright LED
- Large throw for short distance

Cons: Speakers are kind of quiet

Other Thoughts: If you have a quiet room or at least a semi quiet room with no open windows/lawn mowers, you'll be able to hear through the projectors speakers. I have mine hooked up to some cheap computer speakers/bass and it's what I expected.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat projector!

Pros: Bright vivid picture

tri pod mountable

Very versatile with easy setup

WI Fi connected

Smart Apps - able to access web content without computer attached

30,000 hour LED lifespan

Built in TV tuner. I live a bit too far from the local TV transmitter towers to get much reception using the included TV antenna, but when I hook up my rooftop one to it, all my digital broadcast channels come in crystal clear.

"magic" remote that allows you to control the projector with a "mouse" pointer on the projected image - a way better interface method than previous models I've owned

Decent sound from the twin internal speakers. You're not going to fill an auditorium with them, but they are far better both in volume and sound quality, than the internal speaker in my prior LED projector. And there are two of them, on opposite sides of the projector, and they do offer stereo sound from stereo sources.

Cons: I'll be darned if I can come up with any cons at the moment.

Other Thoughts: I just received this LG PA75U today, and have spent about 5 hours getting familiarized with all of it's capabilities and features. This thing is loaded with features.

I've owned one of the "clone" LED 500 lumen projectors for a year and a half, and it's done a good job for me, but technology marches on and this brand spanking new model from LG has many more features, more lumens, higher contrast, and an all around superior picture quality.

I've tested it with Blu Ray movies connected thru HDMI, with a text and image based Power Point presentation again thru an HDMI connection, with the 75U's internal TV tuner, and with web content..You Tube, facebook, etc, directly through the projectors internal smart apps and web browsing ability all on it's own. Blu Rays are impressive , of course, but so are you tube videos.

I've not noticed any focus issues at all. The whole screen is crisp and clear, for both movies as well as text.

The setup is intuitive and gives you more options than you'll probably need, but they're there if you want to use them. There are pre sets for picture adjustments....vivid, cinema, etc, but you are also given the ability to set your own custom picture. I haven't tried that yet, the pre set ones look pretty darn good to me.

Some people are sensitive to fan noise. Those who are will be pleased by this LG, it's quiet. I'm sitting three feet from it right now, with no other sound in the room, and I can't hear any fan noise at all. It's definitely more quiet than my prior projector.
