Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great but not perfect projector

CSchar 10/24/2019

To preface this is my first projector system which I upgraded over an older model 60 flat screen. Im finding that its picture quality is first rate love having near cinema quality viewing in my own home and I love the portability/setup options. Its remote is pretty cool and much easier than toggling around. But it is far from perfect with a couple of large misses and quirky design. For example it is missing critical integrated smart apps such as YouTube TV Amazon Prime HBO etc. That meant I needed to purchase an upgraded 4K version of my Roku in order to watch all the streaming services I subscribe. While the quality of the Roku 4K picture is equally impressive the HDMI1 plug in the rear projector compartment is too far to the right and a little too short. So instead of an ideal hidden compartment to plug in and protect my Roku it has to stick out the side HDMI2 plug. Not end of the world but those little nuisances would make this projector even better. All that said compared to what I would have had to invest in a traditional flat screen 4K television I feel that this projector was a bargain overall -- still in awe of being blessed to watch sharp large screen sports and movies.

This projector is greatly superior to my last one which cost around $1000 and broke after nine years. I have not succeeded in getting it to work with anything but my BluRay DVD reader.

Great Projector

The_Batman 6/23/2019

I have had three LG projectors before this one. I have been very satisfied with all of them. But this one is by far my favorite. The picture is amazing. Love the smart tv features. Even The built in speakers are okay for when its late at night and you dont want to Distub other however I have connected Bluetooth sound bar for all others times.

akelly999 5/19/2019

I bought this several weeks ago. Other than some mounting issues arising because of its length this has been a great experience. Im not sure how thrilled my neighbor was with me displaying a thirty foot image on the side of his two story house but the image quality makes me think hell forgive me.

I bought this in December 2018 for Christmas. I am very satisfied with the product but there is a brightness difference with the mirror and without it. I suggest to Lg to use a TIR prism rather than a mirror

Hollyn 1/21/2019

Got the projector tv to have a space saving solution that was more attractive and equally functional to a regular tv. We are very happy with it. Functions beautifully for streaming tv and gaming.

High price tag for limited streaming apps.

CHonaker 12/25/2018

4k is great if you have apps that can stream content. No HBO Go No Prime Video No DirectvNow Etc... Another consideration is a screen. Ive gotten no reply from LG as to what is the best material to use for a screen to get the best quality picture. We used a 4x8 PVC board from Home Depot that worked pretty well but that doesnt give the full 150 viewing area. I would wait to buy until theres more streaming apps available so you can actually use the projector. All the other features are top notch. WiFi Bluetooth picture remote

Best there is but missing 2 important features

btr2trvl 10/22/2018

Smart TV-not really. You cant control it with any voice assistant and it doesnt work with any SmartThinQ. Having a useless Netflix app doesnt constitute a Smart device. Also no DolbyVision is disappointing. We had it professionally installed with appletv 4K and I often have to reseat the cable to recognize HDMI1. Still we ordered it as soon as we closed on our new home and love it.

Outstanding quality of video

Niwot Legend 8/8/2018

I bought mine about a week ago and I am very satisfied with my whole experience with it. Mounting it using a ceiling mount was a breeze. The image quality on just a blank wall painted black was shockingly good. The screen arrives later this week. It is installed as part of a dedicated home theater and at its price range is a terrific value. Highly recommend this projector.

Very impressed

msquared 7/26/2018

This isnt cheap but Ive been very pleased with the product. The only drawback albeit limited is the form factor. I use mine primarily as a ceiling-mounted projector and the reality is that it was challenging finding a ceiling mount that really balanced this product well. The one I have works but its ultra-sensitive. LG would do well to create a ceiling mount specifically for this form factor. That said I did like/desire the portability aspect as well so its worth it a slight annoyance when needing to adjust how the screen lines up. Otherwise I think this thing is outstanding. I love the software UI and though there is a serious need for additional apps Google Play Movies Movies Anywhere YouTube TV etc etc - its pretty cool to have baked in apps on the projector itself.
