Design

The LG Electronics PF1000UW has a shape of an elongated block. The body of the projector is made of plastic with a white or black matte finish. The coating is not easily soiled and resistant to scratches. Internal cooling air takes in through the grilles on the right and left sides and is blown forward through the front grill. There is one small loudspeaker behind the side grilles surrounded by damping pads of soft porous material. Two small blowing fans are located behind the front grille. There are two HDMI and USB connectors, a power connector, and an antenna input, all of which work seamlessly. The device itself has small dimensions (4.3 x 5.1 x 12.2 inches) and weighs 4.2 pounds, so it can be easily transported in a bag.

Features

The LG Electronics PF1000U ultra short throw smart home theater projector is easily placed next to a wall and can project a Full HD image up to 100 inches. It is equipped with a built-in TV tuner and Smart TV apps such as Netflix and YouTube. Its LED lamp has a lifespan of 30.000 hours, so it seems that such an element is able to work for about 10 years in a case of everyday use. The Eco mode reduces an image brightness in two steps (Medium and Maximum) by 20% and 42%, respectively, and also alleviates the noise level of the cooling system. The remote control works without problems and lays comfortable in the hand. The cooling system noise is average. The buzz comes from the front of the projector, which is facing the wall, so such a sound doesn’t distract me. The noise from the fan becomes fully unnoticeable in the presence of a surrounding speaker system or just a powerful sound source, but in quiet scenes, I can barely hear the projector’s noise.

Performance

The presence of stray light negatively influences contrast. It’s recommended not to use the LG PF1000UW in a room with side lighting and an abundance of white reflective surfaces. Contrast and color saturation are fine up to 80 inches, but the image fades up to 100 inches. The colors look natural and don’t require fine-tuning while using the device in a default Cinema mode, so the projector is ready to go straight out of the box without the need for calibration. The rainbow effect is absent. The sound LG Electronics PF1000UW review demonstrates that 6W speakers aren’t really good (the sound isn’t loud and clear during action scenes), but they can back you up in case you don’t have a speaker system or a soundbar.
