The LG PF85U Is A Smart Projector That Could Find Its Way Into Your Home Or Office

It can be really hard to find the right projector for you to use. There are so many to choose from, each one coming with different options, functions, and sku names. It’s very easy to get lost in the sea of projectors and difficult to figure out which one may be right for you and your home or business. You’re obviously going to want something that is going to get the job done and get it done well. The only problem is trying not to break the bank at the same time. You have the initial cost of the projector and then any possible setup or mounting fees that go along with it. LG is known for making great entertainment tech, such as TVs and projectors. Well, LG is going to be offering a new LED model for retail, and for only $1,299.

The new LG PF85U is looking to be a very good LED DLP Projector and a very smart one too, as it turns out.

So should you choose to invest in this new projector when it comes out later this month, what exactly will you be getting? Well first off, you won’t have to worry about changing a lamp practically ever. You can thank the light emitting diode engine for that one. Since this projector is utilizing an LED engine, it has a much longer life span that most lamps. The projector will be able to turn on and be at full brightness, almost instantaneously. This type of lighting source also means that it can be turned on and off in rapid succession without needing to worry about affecting the lamp’s life span or degrading it. It will always use less energy and emit less heat when in use. I’d imagine that can only help, seeing as how the PF85U has 30,000 hours of use before needing to worry about changing the lamp.

Next thing you’re most likely to be concerned with on the projector is the ports and its connectivity. What all can you hook up to it? With the PF85U, you’ll have access to two USB ports for external media devices and flash drives, two HDMI ports (one of which MHL capable), and 1/8″ and S/PDIF ports for external audio output. The projector itself does have speakers that come attached to it. However, 5-watt speakers on each side aren’t going to really give you the sound quality you may be looking for. The projector also comes complete with a coaxial jack input for antenna purposes. You’ll be able to plug one in and get access to either SD or HD television right from the projector itself.

LG’s new projector is smart too. It may as well be a Smart TV. It comes with the ability to basically be a new media center for your home or business. The use of apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, and Youtube mean that you’ll be able to watch whatever you may want or need directly from the device itself without having to gain access from an external media source. The device also utilizes other non-video related apps such as Facebook and Google Maps, furthering what it can be used for. The new PF85U also comes standard with a built-in web browser and an integrated App Store. With all the added functionality from the apps, you essentially have a new media center with LG’s new projector.

While it may be more suited for home usage, it could still be used within the office or even the office’s break room for recreational purposes. And remember, if you’re unsure about a device and whether you should buy it or not, it never hurts to rent it and try it out before coming to that decision!
