The LG CineBeam HU80KA is LG’s first foray into the world of 4K, and is, perhaps, the most innovative projector to hit the market in 2018! The projector is perfect for beginners, as its compact nature and versatile design make setup a breeze, whether you’re projecting on a screen mounted to the wall, or even the ceiling for watching movies from the comfort of your own bed. There’s no need for extra accessories, such as a table or stand, or even to ceiling mount. Adding to the LG CineBeam’s portability is a nice handle at the top, allowing you to carry the projector from your mancave to an outdoor movie night without missing a beat.

Its innovative design took the behavior of projector fans into account, and LG has been rewarded for their attention to these details. The LG CineBeam has received numerous awards, including the reddot design Award 2018, iF Design Award 2018, and the CES “Best of Innovation” award for its design. Here at Projector Reviews, we awarded the HU80KA our Hot Product Award and even created a Most Innovative Projector of 2018 award in our 2018 Best Home Theater Projectors Report this year to honor this LG for its achievement! To further enhance its value, this award-winning LG 4K UHD projector is on sale during the weeks of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
That’s right, you can order your LG CineBeam on LG CineBeam Product Page or from a wide range of online and local resellers. This LG is the most affordable 4K UHD laser projector around. Check it out!
The LG CineBeam HU80KA has 4K UHD resolution and can project an image of up to 150” diagonally. With 2,500 claimed lumens to go around, and a 20,000-hour laser light source, this LG will entertain you and your guests for years, with a vibrant image, making your lux mancave the place to be for movie nights, sports viewing, and binge-watching Netflix. It even has MEMC (Motion Estimation/Motion Compensation) Technology – LG’s version of Creative Frame Interpolation, making sports that much more realistic-looking and enjoyable.
The HU80KA can be physically setup four different ways – which LG calls its multi-transforming design. This LG can project your favorite content by setting it on the floor, positioned on top of a desk, table, mounted on the wall, the ceiling – or just about anywhere you’d want to put it. Thanks to its I-shaped Engine with the mirrors inside the engine removed, and a more powerful cooling system, the CineBeam has a footprint of half the size of conventional 4K UHD projectors. This makes it suitable for smaller rooms where space is an issue. And, as an added bonus, the projector has some truly impressive on-board sound, making it great for entertaining your guests in the backyard.
Thanks to the laser light engine, this LG projector has the potential to do a much better job on achieving the wider color gamut of DCI/P3 (the standard for commercial movie theater projectors) than non-laser projectors. And, of course, it supports HDR, giving 4K HDR content that extra pop and wow factor compared to non 4K content. Another key aspect of the HU80KA is that it supports not just HDR10 for 4K UHD Bluray disc, but it also supports streaming 4K with the streaming/broadcast HDR format known as HLG – Hybrid Log-Gamma – for you more technically oriented!
“With all the smarts, the unique design, its portability and easy setup, impressive sound, and a whole lot more, this LG should especially have appeal to millennials.” – A compilation of advantages found by Art Feierman (editor) when ProjectorReviews.com reviewed the LG CineBeam HU80KA
“The HU80KA is as smart as LG’s smart TVs, which is to say, very smart. It makes almost all of the competition come across (when talking “Smart TV type” smarts), as dumb as a rock. Those smarts start with a nice collection of apps pre-installed, including Netflix, YouTube, Accuweather, and Hulu, to which you can, of course, add more.” – An excerpt directly from Art’s review of the LG CineBeam HU80KA
It’s no wonder that the LG CineBeam HU80KA won numerous awards since it was announced, especially when you consider that this projector is one of the smartest around. LG’s projectors have included much of the features found in their smart TVs. This CineBeam is no different, except that it has almost all of the LG TV smart features. The HU80KA works with premium content providers such as Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Channel Plus, UFC.TV, and Accuweather, with built in Apps, and you can add many more! It is Bluetooth compatible, so if you want to hook up your HU80KA to a Bluetooth sound bar or compatible surround sound system, you absolutely can! The CineBeam also has a Digital TV Tuner, screen sharing support via MiraCast, and can interface with a wired or wireless keyboard and mouse, as well as GamePad connection through USB. With all these capabilities, and the lowest price of any laser based projector around, the LG CineBeam is one to consider this holiday season!
That’s right, you can get your LG CineBeam at the LG CineBeam’s Product Page for $500 off from November 18, 2018 to December 1, 2018 – just $2,499. That makes this projector the most affordable 4K UHD laser projector around!
