Epson W29: Overall Impressions
Chock full of innovations, the PF 1000U not only has a TV tuner and Bluetooth audio for connecting to speakers, there’s a slew of online apps for using its built-in WiFi and wired networking. Along with connecting to entertainment sites via included apps, the projector has the ability to wirelessly connect with a tablet or notebook.
It all comes together with the PF 1000U’s unique Magic Remote Control. Rather than a rectangular clunky handheld with lots of buttons, the PF 1000U’s remote is minimalist and shaped to fit in the hand. The key is that most everything can be controlled on-screen with its pointer.
At $1,400, the PF 1000U is on the expensive side in view of its light output, but it’s low-power LEDs means that it’s not only economical to use but that it will never need a new lamp. With abilities and features that its competitors can only dream about, the LG PF 1000U is one of the best ultra-short throw projectors around.
Ultimately - the PF1000U is really an impressive LED projector. It can't match lamp based projectors in brightness, but comes close enough for fun home entertainment, and it can double as a serious business projector as long as you don't need to project too large a screen.
All considered, very deserving of our Special Interest Award, which goes out to projectors that are really impressive, but with more specialized appeal than general purpose models.
