The LG CineBeam HU85LA made its first appearance at CES 2019, where it won an Innovation Award. LG is known for their smart TVs and smart projectors, the most recently reviewed being their CineBeam HU80KA. LG fans are eagerly waiting for the arrival of this 4K UHD ultra short throw projector, with new comments popping up on LG’s page for the HU85LA every day. I, too, am keen on this projector, as 4K capable UST projectors are a rare breed indeed. The projector is slated to drop “later in 2019,” and we are hoping to see a demonstration at InfoComm 2019.
Before we get into it – what is a First Look Review? Our First Look Reviews are one-page, simple reviews based on the projector’s specs, features, and our thoughts based on those aspects, before we get the projector in for review – these First Looks are a mixture of insight and common sense. We won’t know if the projector lives up to our expectations until we get it in for testing, but we can make assumptions from what we know about similar projectors from the manufacturers, in addition to those specs/features. Now, on with our First Look Review of the LG CineBeam HU85LA!
