Overall Review: Outstanding picture, especially for the price, and the battery seems to last longer than I expected. Overall a really good value, and I look forward to taking it on camping trips and such.

Fantastic Little Projector 5/10/2016 10:07:23 AM

Pros: I’ve reviewed another similar projector in terms of form factor and features and the LG one blows the other one out of the water. It is far superior on all fronts.
The projector is bright, I played around with the projector in a 200 person capacity room adjusting the lighting to suit the environment.
In a full light environment with the projector plugged in a 7 foot diagonal screen was easily visible for a powerpoint presentation. It was impressive given the size of the projector and that it is only 550 lumens.
For viewing a movie I needed to turn off the lights directly over the projector screen and at that point it was no longer washed out looking. With all the lights off the color and picture was truly vibrant.
It is full of features, the digital tv tuner is easy to set up and it works fine. It would be a little challenging to do all of this without the remote but it is possible. The remote is a key feature of the projector. The remote makes moving through the inputs and making setting changes easy.
I also used the projector to play a few games of Wii bowling and it worked wonderfully for that. Throughout all the testing I was using a tripod for the projector stand.
It is quiet. The fan is no louder than your average laptop fan and even with that being said it’s still impressively quiet. It was silent relative to the other mini projector that I reviewed which sounded like a mini jet engine when running.

Cons: The little integrated speaker is rather weak, in a pinch it would be usable for something like a presentation in an office environment or sounds to accompany a game like Wii bowling. Otherwise you can use the ability to broadcast sound over Bluetooth or the headphone out jack.
It is not possible to get the same level of brightness while unplugged. I assume it’s for battery conservation but the end user should really be able to keep the brightness at whatever level they would like and not be locked out software wise.
No zoom, the screen size is directly proportional to how far away you are. It would be nice to have a little adjustment in terms of a zoom.

Overall Review: Overall this is an impressive projector. I can’t see taking off any eggs for the above mentioned cons. It would probably add another hundred or so dollars and increase the size of the unit significantly to implement any of those things. For what you’re paying for this device you are getting a substantial projector which would be useful for moderate home or office use. I could see it being useful for essentially anybody that needs to use a projector.

It is a great projector and if I run into any issues down the line with it I’ll update the review.

Powerful Mini Projector! 4/29/2016 11:24:11 AM

Pros: Very impressed with this LG Minibean Projector! It has a decent User Interface for files, and the TV tuner works great! Loaded with input options like HDMI, RGB, and Audio/Video in with RCA, even has screen share and mirroring options! Utilizing LED’s allows for whisper quiet fan cooling, I hardly noticed it! Projecting a 1 foot wide screen to 9 foot wide screen the picture was excellent at 720P!

TV tuner setup was a breeze with Auto Scan, also has a manual option for channels if need be. Has a built in clock, with snooze and auto off timer features. Parental controls with PIN code setup. Built in 3D video output options!

The 1 watt speakers can be heard with no problems over the fan, ideal for taking on a camping trip if no Bluetooth speaker is available. I watched videos on a memory stick using the internal speakers for 2.5 hours and still had battery power to spare!

Tested with numerous memory sticks, and portable drives and this unit had no problems recognizing any size I threw at it! From 2GB to 1TB, ExFat, FAT32, and NTFS, were all recognized with this projector!

As for media files, I tested many and can confirm the following all played with no problems; .AVI, .DIVX, .M2TS, .MKV, .MOV, .MP4, .MPG, .TS, .VOB, .WMV, AND .XVID.

Audio formats; .AAC, .OGG, .M4A, .MP3, AND .WMA were all recognized and played fine.

Built in Digital Keystone Correction; Auto Keystone (vertical). This allows the projector to use internal image scalers to digitally correct the image signal before it even reaches the lens, so you can project at greater angles than manual keystone correction can provide. This ensures that the projected image will be a proper rectangular shape, which allows for greater flexibility in deciding where to position the projector.

Auto PJT mode will flip the projected picture according to how it is mounted horizontally. If you have to mount it in an upside down position, it will automatically flip the projected picture so that it is right side up. This is a nice feature which allows you more mounting options than the standard mounting of right side up only.

When fast forwarding through larger video files, when you resume play the lip sync may be off a bit, simply pause and restart and it will sync back up. This is an issue that tends to happen on many devices when playing very large video files when resuming playback after fast forwarding.

Cons: Not really a con to me, but worth mentioning, there is no way to label the digital channels that it receives from your cable provider. Work around would be to just make yourself a cheat sheet to have on hand for finding channels quickly.

Overall Review: I would recommend to this to anyone who wants to go with a very large viewing screen on a wall. This projector would work great in a man-cave, or even for gamers who want to immersive themselves into a larger viewing environment! Also great for backyard parties, just grab a 4x8 sheet of plywood, paint it flat white and you have a simple inexpensive screen!

When you consider the cost of a large screen TV, purchasing this with a decent networked DVD player, and Bluetooth speaker system the overall cost would be less and more bang for the buck. A networked DVD player these days usually comes with all the App's for Netflix and other streaming services.

With all the input plugs built into this projector, you have tons of options, such as a PlayStation, XBOX, Roku, a DVD Blu-Ray Player, etc.!

Fantastic Portable Projector! 4/29/2016 10:17:49 AM

Pros: + Superb color reproduction with numerous preset picture modes & expert calibration menus, similar to ones found on higher end LG HDTVs

+ 720p resolution is adequate for most tasks the projector will be used for

+ In a dark room, the 550 lumen brightness is more than plenty to project a 90”+ picture, even though the 720p resolution limitation would be more prevalent at that size

+ Automatic keystone correction to skew the projected image to achieve a rectangular picture. In order to achieve the best picture quality, it is recommended to turn the keystone auto-correction off and manually position the projector to achieve the rectangular projected image

+ Small size, marginally larger than the palm of the hand

+ Connectivity ranges from older composite cables, HDMI input, VGA input, HDTV antenna connector, and USB storage device

+ Ability to use Android devices which support screen sharing

+ Options of using a tripod mount or sitting on a table top with an adjustable front leveling peg

+ Three brightness settings can be toggled via the Energy Saving button on the remote

+ Relatively quiet for the size & brightness. Noise varies with brightness settings. Based on the heat coming out from the vents, the overall noise could theoretically be further reduced by LG

+ Ability to view 3D movies with an addition of compatible active shutter glasses

+ Headphone/external speaker output, as well as Bluetooth speaker connectivity

+ Due to the issue with Bluetooth audio not syncing with video on most devices, there’s a feature to sync the picture/audio within the projector; which is absolutely fantastic for those who have come across trying to view video on a device meanwhile streaming the audio through a Bluetooth speaker

Cons: - Overall sound could be better; therefore use of an external speaker is highly recommended

- Maximum brightness when running on battery is lower than when connected to the outlet

- In a brightly lit room, the screen size should be limited as it may appear dim at larger sizes

- Included USB port is only able to provide low 500 mA current to the attached devices, therefore not being to keep attached devices charged when doing presentations while the devices are also in use. Also due to the low current, external hard drives that solely rely on USB for power may not work.

- No way to charge USB devices with the projector turned off, since no power is supplied through the USB port

- Lack of WIFI internet connectivity and any ‘Smart TV’ features, even though a lot of features already on the projector seem to have come from LG line of TVs

- No way to zoom the image, so the projected screen size is directly proportional to the distance away from the screen

Overall Review: For owners of LG televisions, the overall use of this projector will be right inline with the TV counterparts. Menus & settings are laid out in the same style found on TVs. For those who calibrate their TVs to achieve the best possible picture, will be pleasantly surprised with the plethora of expert calibration options available.

Overall the LG PH550 is a fantastic projector which will even find use outside of on-the-go environments. Don’t let the listed cons steer you away from this particular projector as you’d be hard pressed to find ones with similar feature set in this price range.
