Portable LED Projector

The LG PF610P, which retails for $849 MSRP is a DLP LED home entertainment projector, and it is small enough to be considered transportable. This LG projector utilizes a single DLP chip to deliver Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080). The PF610P is an HDR-compatible projector featuring a 4-channel LED light engine rated to deliver 1,000 lumens of brightness for up to 30,000 hours.

2021 Projector Reviews Highly Recommended


The PF610P is part of the LG CineBeam lineup of projectors designed to make front projection more accessible and appealing to a broader range of consumers.


The PF610P includes internal speakers and is a smart projector using the same ThinQ AI webOS offered in LG's lineup of smart flat-panel TVs. Like their smart TVs, the PF610P provides access to a wide range of apps. Since the PF610P is a DLP projector with an LED light engine, it also delivers years of maintenance-free operation.


The PF610P projector also supports Dolby Atmos audio for a richer, deeper, and more immersive sound. The PF610P provides an internal 6W (3W x 2) stereo system along with a 3.5 mm audio out along with one S/PDIF Optical connection. In addition to the two HDMI inputs, the projector also has two USB Type-A connectors featuring HID (Keyboard, Mouse, Gamepad connection thru USB) functionality.

OVERVIEW

The PF610P is an $849 MSRP, Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen resolution projector. LG designed the PF610P to be transportable while delivering a high-quality image, allowing users to easily show movies and other entertainment anywhere with access to power.

On the Go Performance


The LG PF610P uses a Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing Projector (DLP) imaging chip to project a 120-inch diagonal image. You can project a larger image, but 120 inches is the maximum recommended size. LG has designed the PF610P to deliver a picture they refer to as cinematically immersive, whatever that means. I will be sure to let you know how immersive the image appears to me.

LED Color Quality


The LG PF610P uses an LED light source rated to produce 1,000 ANSI lumens of brightness which is not bad for such a portable projector. LG talks a lot about vivid shades and striking clarity in its marketing release. I'm pretty sure they are referring to color performance. The PF610P uses a 4 Channel LED Light Source, referring specifically to the projector's discrete Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) LEDs combined with LG's Dynamic green technology. Using these two technologies in the PF610P is designed to improve the 610P's brightness and image sharpness compared to conventional LED projectors that use three-channel LED light sources. Because of this, LG says this new LED CineBeam projector delivers more vibrant images than conventional projectors. Eliminating the traditional DLP color in favor of LED technology overcomes conventional projectors' defects such as discoloration of LCD and the irritating DLP rainbow effect.

webOS 5.0


The LG610P is a smart projector running LG's most recent webOS 5.0 platform. LG webOS 5.0 provides access to popular streaming platforms such as Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Apple TV, YouTube, and many more. It is compatible with Apple AirPlay 2 and MiraCast for Android users, allowing viewers to share content from smartphones.
The PF610P features a 4-corner keystone adjustment that allows users to adjust the projected image from four different points. This helps users achieve a squared image from virtually any angle. Additionally, the PF610P features a 1.195 throw ratio, allowing large screens to be projected even from close range.


On paper, the LG PF610P seems to fit a tremendous amount of performance and features into a small (8.9-inch x 7.6-inch x 2.7-inch) body combined with a mere 3.7 pounds of weight. Using this projector as an on-the-go device should not be an issue.
