LG ProBeam: Pro Portable Laser Projector? (HF80JA)

by birtanpublished on September 29, 2020

What's up everybody this is Danny and this is the LG pro beam or also known as the LG HS h 0j a and this is a DLP laser projector that is only four point seven pounds you can have the power of a mm Luger projector pretty much anywhere you want mostly we'll probably won't even

Take this out of their house or their dedicated theater room but it's nice to have that flexibility if you want to do some outdoor viewing so I've been using this for about a week here my thoughts the design has a retro throwback feel

Which I really like the fan girls through out the bottom I think it's a really nice touch there's built-in speakers on the sides which will do for casual viewing there's also a combo navigation and power button up at the

Top and also a zoom slider which is nice to see on the back you have tons of inputs pretty much everything that you'll need is here if you want to use this with a high-end sound system you can do that you have a couple of choices

You have Bluetooth sound out which is nice so any Bluetooth speaker will work from small to high-end or you can use the auxilary out for a physical connection overall I really like this design is slim it's not bulky and I

Appreciate the attention to detail and it's one of the nicest designs that I've seen on a projector the first thing to note is that this is a laser projector traditional bulbs last anywhere between 500 hours to 6,000 hours it all just

Depends on how much you spend and it's very inconsistent but this is rated for 20,000 hours of projection so that's incredible so let's do some crazy math you can actually leave this thing on for over two years without turning it off

And it still wouldn't die on what makes the LG probe beam special is that you will see basically the same webOS TV interface built-in that you see on their TVs I really like the software I own an LG super UHD model from a year ago and I

Love the interface there and the same goes for the projector the remote is very nice to have there's no need to dig deep through the menus all the buttons you need or right here and if you've used an LG TV before

It'll be very familiar to you there's even a pointer feature here which makes a lot of sense on a huge screen like this most of the time webOS is fluid but some parts of the interface like the way browser can be a little laggy I'm sure

This can be fixed with a software update and depending on when you watch this it could already be addressed most projectors don't come with the cohesiveness of webOS with access to ton of apps like Netflix natively and also a

Content store if you're into that kind of stuff and this is easily accessed through the built-in Wi-Fi but if you need an Ethernet connection it's there you can access content in a bunch of different ways you can use the USB ports

To use an external drive with your library on it you can also access cable either through the built-in tuner or you can hook up your cable box you can use HDMI for gaming consoles and media players or my favorite thing is that you

Can use miracast compatible phones like the LG G 6 and you can wirelessly mirror your smart phone display to project whatever is on your phone I think this feature is pretty awesome if you own an iPhone you can use it by

The way if you get the lightning to AV dongle and an HDMI cord but if you want that Wireless mirroring you will need a compatible Android device the projection can go all the way up to 120 inches but I think the sweet spot in my usage has

Been right around 100 and the resolution is 1080p and I wish it was 4k but this is a very sharp 1080p image the colors are vibrant the contrast levels are also nice the 2001 output while viewable is not enough for a super bright room but

It should be plenty for mixed lighting use and it's absolutely perfect for darker rooms so this would be perfect for a theater room or a bedroom I'm sure it would look even better with a projector screen but even on my white

Wall it looks fantastic I've been let down by so many projectors in the last year or two this is a nice change it's one of the nicer images that I've seen from a projector of this size and price class so I'm impressed

The focus ring on the front is a nice touch to be able to dial in the right focus and the auto keystoning makes it easy not to get distorted images even if you move the projector if it's still not right then you can tune the four corners

Inside the menu this thing is easy to throw on a tripod so you can take it anywhere and these speakers are surprisingly good for built-in speakers but anything beyond casual viewing I would suggest

External speakers I did notice a very slight delay with certain Bluetooth speakers but not all of them but the auxiliary output is perfect digging into the menus there's a lot of ways to adjust your picture on here you get the

Same amount of flexibility that you would get on a web os or LG TV so I really like this you can go in there and change everything from your color temperature to other settings like dynamic contrast to get that right

Picture so you have a lot of flexibility here I can't wait to use this a little bit more I want to be building my own theater system here in the house there's a lot of stuff to buy a lot of research to do I know there's different types of

Projector screens different types of speakers so if you want me to document this and share this with you let me know in the comment section below I really like the portability and power of the LG provine and with a good portable battery

Pack that accepts AC power and a portable projector screen the pro beam could be the ultimate laser projector for outdoor use the pro beam plus something like youtube TV could be amazing for Super Bowl parties or fun
