Part of the black Friday deal, down from £999!
Upto Approx 30,000 hours lamp life, when compared to the short lamp life in dlp projectors. But, don't think this unit has the LG web os smart feature and the LG magic remote as included in the US version.
This is whole new type of projector for home cinema, and is portable. It only needs 38cm to get 100inch cinematic size(11cm for 60inch). Without distance calculation, just put PF1000U on your existing furniture(or floor) in front of wall and play.

Is that distance from the actual lamp, or from the end of the unit?


The unit looks bigger than 11cm from the lamp(output) to the end of the unit, so wonder how you'd get 11cms for that figure above?

Yes, it does seem low on the lumen front

nearer the wall so the lumens can be a BIT lower but 1000 seems too low for anything but a dark room
IMHO DLP is still superior and laser-DLP 4K is coming soon at affordable prices (been out for a while at exorbitant prices)

Yep, led projectors have low lumens when compared to the dlp, and so u need a pretty dark room. Only advantage would be the low running costs and lamp replacement only after 30,000 hours.

Have a look on the Techmoan YouTube channel he does a review.

I wouldn’t bother tried one of these a little while ago it’s really poor for the money hopefully the newer model will be better

This is DLP. You've got your light sources and picture sources confused. I agree that LEDs can't yet match mercury lamps for brightness though where lasers might well be able to.

I bought on of these from Amazon less than a year ago for only £10 more than this.

Yes, it does need a dark room but I absolutely love it. Rarely use the TV in my lounge these days.

Great piece of kit. Been worth the money for me.

Built in speaker is a little weak so I connect to a Bluetooth speaker instead.

Unfortunately i think that this will not be bright enough for my lounge
Techmoan s youtube review isnt too bad regarding this item.

Haven't
3 light sources
LED
Mercury vapour
Laser (LED)

2 display tech
LCD
DLP

2 'true HD' film resolutions
1920x1080p
3840x 2160p (4K)

I'm saying that, pound for pound, the 4K DLP center xenon bulb is the best buy right now, but not far behind is 4K DLP laser.

I have one of these and its amazing.

On 02/17 purchased used as new (was new but a box) for GBP555 so not the best price at the moment.

I don't know where 11cm came from... if you watch the video on the page, it says "you can put the unit as close as 15 Inches (38cm) away from projection surface".... which is still pretty impressive!

clarification++. I agree it's best right now but personally I'm sticking at 1080p until laser light sources (or at least 3000 lumen LEDs) are cheap enough and then I'll make the 4K jump.
