LG CineBeam HU80K Home Theater Projector – A Video by LG

The LG CineBeam HU80K is a versatile home theater projector claiming 2,500 lumens – a healthy amount of brightness for a home theater and rooms where you have at least moderate lighting control. This DLP projector has a rather interesting design in that it is a vertical standing short throw projector that can be placed on a table top or even on the ground in front of your wall or screen (screen preferred).

It’s an award-winning projector – winner of Projector Central’s Editor’s Choice Award, Reddot Design Award 2018, IF Design Award 2018, and CES Innovation Awards 2018. With a rap sheet like that, I’m willing to bet Projector Reviews will have an award for it, too – but we’ll have to wait for Art’s review to see!

The LG CineBeam HU80K is a laser projector with great feature set – 4K UHD resolution and HDR being among the most coveted. The projector comes with a pair of 7 Watt speakers, but you can hook up externals via an Audio Out, or, more impressively, via Bluetooth! It also has wireless capabilities via Miracast for when you want to project from your smartphone or tablet. The HU80K is equipped with LG’s Smart TV platform, which allows users to run Netflix and other streaming services directly from the projector. Now that’s smart!

Due to that laser light engine, the LG CineBeam HU80K boasts a 20,000-hour lifespan. One of the things I personally like about LG’s marketing for this projector is that they break that number down for potential buyers in terms of how it would translate to real life.

For a person who watches 8 hours a day, the projector’s light engine will last 7 years. For those who watch 4 hours a day, it will last 14 years, and for people who watch 2 hours a day – you can expect to enjoy your projector for 28 years! Now, by then we’ll be well past 8K, so you’ll most likely get a new projector by then, but it’s nice to know the projector will outlive its technology.
