LG PH300 HD MiniBeam Portable DLP LED Projector Built-In DTV Tuner for Live TV
LG PH300 HD MiniBeam Portable DLP LED Projector. Is designed to project crisp, detailed images with lifelike color reproduction from just about anywhere. It features DLP projection technology, a Triple XD Engine, and an LED RGB light source that has a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours. Plus, a built-in rechargeable battery means that can use the PH300 to project up to a 100 diagonal image for 2.5 hours without needing to be tethered to a power outlet. The projector also features an HD 1280 x 720 native resolution, 300 lumens of brightness, and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio that help to ensure a cinematic viewing experience. For connectivity, the PH300 features a built-in DTV tuner for enjoying live TV and an HDMI input that is compatible with MHL Android mobile device display mirroring. It will work with SlimPort-equipped Android smartphones and tablets as well. For iOS mobile device connectivity via HDMI, an additional converter cable is required. The projector also has a USB port that will playback audio, photo, video, and MS Office files from a USB drive or computer. There’s even an audio output jack for connecting an external speaker system or listening with headphones. Other notable features of the PH300 include a built-in 2W stereo speaker system, auto vertical keystone correction technology and a DC input jack for powering the projector from an external wall outlet (AC adapter included). LG rates their LED engine at up to 30,000 hours (in Eco power mode, I would assume). If you use your PH300 for 40 hours a week, youre talking 15 years and even with a shorter life in the highest power mode (perhaps 10 years), you are still talking about many years of service. As a second benefit, although LED light sources do lose brightness over time, they do so far, far, slower than traditional lamps. One unusual aspect of LED light engines and many hybrid ones is that they are at their brightest the first few seconds after power up. We wait at least 15 or 20 minutes before doing measurements, because the projectors will dim a bit. Perhaps manufacturers do their measurements the first instant after power up, because no matter the brand, we just dont see many LED projectors measuring more than 75% of claim, and 30% or more below the claimed values seems the norm. See our Performance page for this LGs brightness measurements. In additional to operating the PH300 from normal AC line power, with its supplied external power supply, this projector has a built-in battery that LG claims will operate the projector for up to 2.5 hours on battery power. Now this assumes the projector is operated in the low power Eco mode while operating in the middle or highest power mode will reduce the operating time when running on battery power. The PH300 has a USB connector on the rear panel that allows you to make multimedia presentations directly form files stored on a USB flash memory drive. Photos (in jpg format), videos in h. 264/AVC, WMV, MKV, DIVX, VOB, etc. File formats, and audio files in mp3, AAC, MPEG, etc. Also MS Office files (Office 97 thru Office 2007) in both the older formats i. DOC, XLS, PPT as well as the newer file formats i. DOCX, XLSX and PPTX are supported along with pdf and txt files. The projectors remote includes the controls to select and navigate thru slide shows, videos, presentations, etc. MHL is essentially mobile HDMI. The LG PH300 supports MHL devices on its HDMI port. This allows you to plug in MHL compatible devices such as a Roku stick (however, not tested for this review). MHL is relatively recent, so it may see a lot more capabilities down the road. To be effective, since MHL supports video, audio, and command and control, a projector really should have its own sound system. MHL allows many people to cut the cord. Please note, though, that the image quality of Blu-ray is much better than those boxes or MHL, which are much more highly compressed. Some phones and tablets, as well as all kinds of other smart devices are being designed with MHL. The more the merrier, as they essentially all become new sources for this projector. Seeing a coaxial connector that one might have coming from an outdoor antenna, or an old school VHS player or cable box, was a real surprise. LG seems to be offering this input on several of their pico & pocket projectors. If you are in a location where over-the-air digital TV broadcasts can be received via an antenna, then this pocket projector may be just what you are looking for. I did not test this feature of the PH300. The PH300 offers 5 default picture modes Vivid, Standard, Cinema, Sport and Game. In addition it has two user picture modes that LG calls Expert 1 and Expert 2. The LG PH300, does have the necessary controls to do a more-or-less real picture calibration if one of the Expert modes is selected. This sequence of images shows the 5 pre-set picture modes plus the results with the factory settings for Expert 1 mode. The PH300 is battery-powered, small enough to carry almost anywhere, and can project up to a 100 diagonal image with HD (1280 x 720) resolution and a brightness of 300 lumens. Thanks to a built-in DTV tuner, you can use the portable PH300 to project over-the-air live TV signals so you can enjoy your favorite TV shows – including realtime sports broadcasts – from just about anywhere. The PH300’s built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 2.5 hours of projection time on a single charge. The PH300 has an HDMI input that supports high-definition video and audio playback through a single cable from set-top boxes, gaming consoles, and other devices with an HDMI output. The HDMI port also works with MHL and SlimPort adapters, which means you can mirror content from compatible Android smartphones or tablets on the projector’s display (iOS mobile devices require a converter cable). USB connectivity allows playback of HD DivX video, MP3 audio, JPEG photo, and Word/Excel/PowerPoint Office files from a USB drive for convenient PC-less projection (also supports USB playback of compatible files via computer connection). The PH300’s Triple XD Engine delivers natural color reproduction and accurate picture quality, while the LED lamps enable a 114% wider color gamut than can be achieved by conventional projector lamps with reference-quality contrast ratios. The projector’s high-effeciancy LED RGB light source features a long lifespan up to 30,000 hours, which translates to four hours of projection every day for 20 years from the LEDs. Thanks to the PH300’s auto vertical keystone correction, the projector will automatically detect and correct image distortion up to 40° for an undistorted picture in just three seconds. 1280 x 720 (HD). 16:9 (native) 4:3 (supported).
