LG CF3D Projector Review

LG CF3D Projector: Pros

  • A brighter 3D projector with about 1000 lumens when doing 3D
  • Excellent color (post calibration)
  • Very competent on a variety of 3D content
  • Passive 3D – does not require active glasses (which are still very expensive)
  • 3D glasses are lightweight (6 pair included)
  • Remote control has good feel, intuitive layout, good range
  • Full CMS (color management system)
  • Produces over 2000 lumens with extremely good color in 2D
  • 120 hz smooth motion processing (creative frame interpolation)
  • Good looking (if massive) projector
  • 3D performance -Very effective – clear with good depth, on a wide variety of 3D content

LG CF3D Projector: Cons

Click to enlarge. SO close

  • Dual lamp operation does mean higher cost of operation than almost all single lamp projectors
  • A bit noisy (audible noise) for a projector of its brightness
  • Physically a very large, heavy projector (relative to brightness)
  • Passive 3D – requires a 3D capable screen (as well as passive glasses)
  • Unable to convince PS3 (upgraded with 3D firmware) that it is Blu-ray 3D capable (in fairness, no problem at all when using a Panasonic Blu-ray player with HDMI 1.4, so it is likely the Sony firmware)
  • Dual lamp system translates to higher cost of operation

LG CF3D Projector: Typical Capabilities

  • Some crosstalk visible on virtually all 3D content
  • Documentation is generally good, but as is typical, more explanation of many controls and features would be very beneficial
  • Contrast for a commercial projector
