Visual media is best enjoyed on a big screen TV and in the best resolution if possible. For now, the amount of 4K content available is steadily on the rise as the demand likewise increases. Moreover, the prices of televisions that support the format are becoming more affordable. However, if you want a larger display, the price is likewise sure to follow its size—which is why laser projectors are becoming a likely but expensive option for consumers. The LG HU80KA prefers a different approach.

This laser projector can output entertainment minus the need for an external source. Users who have experiences with the brand’s newer television models will immediately find the webOS interface familiar—this means that you can stream content directly from the Wi-Fi-enabled projector. The integrated speakers allow you to use it independently from your sound system—we would still recommend that you hook it up since it can only muster around 7-watts of audio.

Its innovative design allows you to position the HU80KA in different ways. You will find a metal handle set close to the projection lens. Its primary use is for transporting this burly device around, also doubling as a stand when the projector is horizontal. The top opens to reveal an adjustable mirror that reflects the image when it’s vertically positioned.

The LG HU80KA can throw 4K-resolution images onto a surface from 40 to 150 inches in size. With 2,500 lumens of brightness and HDR10—the manufacturer promises up to 20,000 hours of usage. The Screen Share feature lets you share photos directly from an Android or iOS device. TruMotion technology is on board to keep videos a smooth as butter.
