LG’s latest CineBeam projectors are ready for your living room, and it’s clear you’ll pay a premium for their image quality. The company has announced that the laser-based lineup starts at $6,000 for the HU915QE, which can produce a 90-inch 4K image when it’s just 2.2 inches from the wall, or 120 inches when he sits 7.2 inches away. It also achieves a high brightness of 3,700 lumens and can boast a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, making daytime viewing a realistic option.
The $6,500 HU915QB (pictured above) isn’t quite as bright at 3,000 lumens, but its black finish makes it better suited for late-night sessions. Both models have three HDMI ports with eARC support, two USB ports and an integrated 2.2-channel 40W speaker system. Unsurprisingly, they run LG’s webOS interface (an advantage over competing “dumb” projectors that lack native apps) and offer conveniences like AirPlay 2 support, Bluetooth, and screen mirroring.
The HDR support of the new Cinebeam projectors is limited to HDR10 and HLG. You should buy one of LG’s latest OLED TVs if you crave Dolby Vision, and you certainly won’t get 8K support. That being said, these units could be strong values if image size matters more than anything else.
